    Overall Experience: I love football season! We have cool pep rallies and it's like the whole school comes out to support our dedicated football team during their game! Also our principal is just amazing, he takes pride in our school, he motivates EVERYONE to do their best, and without him our school would not have the pride we have today! Since we are Pearland High School (PHS) we always have a saying that our Principal says everyday and everyone knows how it goes "Pride, Honor, Success!"

    Extracurriculars: The extracurriculars in this high school were indeed great. Art Club, Writing Club, Spanish Club, Debate Club, etc, were so good. All of them had knowing instructors that made the organization very fun. I know this because I meet the instructors personally and saw how they got involved and encouraged the students to do the same.

    Educational Outcomes: As of now, I have yet to step into the 'real' world completely. However, Pearland High School taught me that I am pride, I am honor, and I am success, that I can do anything as long as i give it my all, and that I'm going to encounter so many challenges ahead that I will want to give up, but Pearland also taught me that this is inevitable, and that against all odds, I must keep on doing what I do best.
