Our mission is to work collaboratively to do whatever it takes to inspire and motivate our students and ensure that they are learning. 

About the School

Who We Are

Our school, PG as we affectionately call it, was established in 2008. We have fewer than 1,000 students and a range of activities, including Athletics, Performing Arts, FFA, FBLA, HOSA, National Arts Society, and many more. The North Carolina School Report Card rated PGHS with a growth score of 96%. We have a very active social media presence, especially on Twitter.  We use the #pgpride to share with the world all the wonderful events associated with PGHS. Our focus word at PG this year is "grit."  Grit is perseverance, passion, strength of purpose.  Personal grit is a huge factor in success and it requires persistent and consistent effort!  As Dr. Walston says every day at the end of announcements, "Make it a great day, Patriots!"

Academic Highlights

Our students are engaged in a relevant and challenging course of study that is designed to prepare them to be career and/or college ready after high school. We offer a wide variety of Advanced Placement courses that prepare our students for college; CTE courses that provide relevancy in a project-based atmosphere; Honors and Standard level courses that are at or above state levels; and one of the best performing arts programs in our state.
