Parkersburg South is a great school- but you have to be willing to take part in the great programs. I love the marching band and the crazy student section, and the different clubs and things going on at the school. But your average student who doesn't participate or get involved might think the school is bland because that's one of the best things about this school are the activities. The teachers really care about the students, their education, and their future. I am second generation to this school and this is our 50th year of existence. Definitely recommend.

Parkersburg South had a great community of teachers. Most of them prepared us for the college world, while others sadly did not. Although the lunch was terrible, the atmosphere was my favorite. I absolutely loved going to football and basketball games.
