My guidance councelor was great and attentive, the school nurse knew me and understood what to do when I was sent there (I have asthma) and my teachers were overall excellent.

Potomac High School has made such great strides over the past 10 years that it is unfair to compare it to its past. SOL scores are in the upper 80's to low 90's, the athletic coaches are among the best in Prince William County, teachers are among the most caring I have ever encountered, athletic teams ...  Read more
