Review about Pelham High

For the three years that I have been here so far, it has been a pleasure being a part of Pelham High School. The teachers are mostly helpful and they really do want to help you succeed. The counselors are very resourceful as well, but I do say that we need more AP classes available. Other than that, I love it here. Can’t wait to take on my senior year as a Pelham panther!
