54 Parent Reviews for Providence High School

I agree with many of the negative reviews here about Providence and the administration. However, I do not agree and think others should not be misled that if you have a top academic performer your child will be fine. My son was/is a top student and now in the Honors College at the university he attends. ...  Read more

Last year was my 6th year with a child at PHS. It continues to decline and will continue to do so as long as the administration cares more about the school's reputation than educating students. This attitude comes from the top down and has permeated the ranks of the teachers. Of course there are some ...  Read more

My daughter attended West Mecklenburg as a freshman and sophomore. I got a new job in the South Charlotte area, which means she had to transfer to Providence. Considering it seemed to be a better environmental area, I was hoping Providence could be even better. It was an awful experience. My daughter ...  Read more

On the surface this school looks great, but the reality is very different! Everything you see in the other posts about the school being inflexible is true. The administration is a nightmare to deal with. The teachers think they are great, but the truth is they aren't very good and they don't deserve ...  Read more

This school is not as bad as the comments are ...  Read more

Providence is a great and challenging school. It's not easy but it is worth it. The teachers and administration are always willing to help and guide my children. There is a TON of extracurricular activities for any student from athletics to fine arts to academics. There are the "normal" high school ...  Read more

Update: This school epitomizes what is WRONG with the US free public education system. Long story short, my child was pigeon-holed as a low performer, failed twice by a teacher in a subject both his father and I are well versed in teaching on a University level. Our child had self esteem issues stemming ...  Read more

FINALLY removed my child from this school after 2 years of empty promises and a facade of caring administrators. Been in a new school for 2 semesters and love it. Have a new found faith in education and can't express how much happier and production my child is. If you are considering PHS, words of advice; ...  Read more

I graduated here I'm 2011. If you are even I'm the slightest thinking about putting your child in this school run far! I transferred in my sophomore year and was in the top 10% of my old school. Once I got here I was struggling to maintain B's in my classes. The school only teaches you how to take scantron ...  Read more
