+ Office Staff were seldom courteous to adult visitors at all three campuses.
+ Office staff were intimidating to students at PGHS.
+ Restrooms at PGMS & PGHS were unclean and not regularly supplied with soap/towels...and many faucets/stall doors were inoperable. My kids used to "hold it" til they came home.

On a postive note:

+ Secure, smaller environment
