Falcon Feedback is a student forum to provide feedback to the Principal Team and to hear Student Voice. Falcon Feedback meets every Friday during Period 3. The principal team meets with 16 random students (4 from each grade) to hear their feedback on four questions:
1. What makes Pottsgrove HS great?
2. How does Pottsgrove HS need to improve?
3. What do you dream Pottsgrove HS could be/do?
4. What can you do to make Pottsgrove HS a better place?
Below are the results from our Falcon Feedback Session from Friday, December 9, 2016.
What makes Pottsgrove great?

The Pennsylvania Department of Education requires students in grades 11-12 to complete a graduation project that is established by their
school district. PGHS has identified a need to provide students with a clear focus on career exploration; thus, we have modified our graduation project requirements for sophomores and juniors. Career exploration is so important as students begin to identify universities that support their career goals and as they prepare for the workplace. Students will, therefore, build a career portfolio.
Communication - Talking with them about various careers and finding their interests and strengths
Build on Strengths - My father always told me, "If you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life." It's so important that students search for careers that align with their interests and strengths.
Explore - Allow your teen to explore various career paths. Help them to set up a job shadowing day, connect them with people in the career path of their interest, and allow them to explore various universities that specialize in their career path.
Guidance - Reach out to your son/daughter's school counselor for help in guiding them in exploring careers. Our school counselors are trained professionals who are experienced in guiding parents and students through career exploration and college selection.
Support - It is important that you support your son/daughter's career exploration. Guide them but don't discourage them if they explore a career that may be unfamiliar to you.
Please be sure to stop in the main lobby to learn about the Western Montgomery Career and Technical Center, Dual Enrollment opportunities, Air Force Junior ROTC, and much more. This is an ideal time to learn about the numerous opportunities that we provide for students at PGHS.
We will be providing transportation for any parent that needs a ride to Back to School Night. If you are in need of transportation, please contact our school office at 610-326-5105 to reserve your spot. A school van will pick you up and take you home from this most informative evening. A huge kudos goes out to our PTSA (Parent/Teacher/Student Association) for funding the transportation.
