 Pendleton County High School once again ranked with the best high schools

in West Virginia in US News and World Report.

Pendleton County High School was ranked #18 overall in WV

and is in the Top 3 for  Single A schools.


The 2021 Prom for PCHS Juniors & Seniors is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, May 8th. 

The committee is making arrangements for this event by following the latest COVID-19 Guidance for Prom which has been published by the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources on Monday, March 15, 2021. In adherence to the guidance document, the following decisions have been made: The event will be open to only PCHS Seniors and Juniors; students will be permitted to dance as long as masks are worn at all times; prom picture option will be provided on site; masks will be required at all times whether dancing or socializing; and students will be assigned to tables to ensure proper social distancing.

Currently, Governor Justice has an Executive Order regarding masks - while attending school event masks will be worn at all times and this will be followed at Prom. Please understand, we must follow all guidelines set forth by the Pendleton County Board of Education, Pendleton County Health Department and comply with any Executive Orders in effect at the time of the event. More updates will follow as they become available.
