Pocomoke High School (PHS), a Maryland Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, located near the Cyprus lined Pocomoke River, is a small rural school that enjoys unprecedented support and pride from the surrounding community. PHS students excel in academics and in extracurricular activities. The faculty and staff of Pocomoke High School endeavor to prepare all students to compete intellectually and vocationally in an ever-changing global society. While the school shares a community-wide mission statement with the Pocomoke City Schools, many students are more familiar with the school's motto: "Always honor the Warrior Code: Courage, Achievement, Perseverance, and Scholarship."
The students at Pocomoke High School consistently demonstrate some of the highest attendance rates in the county. A large percentage of the student body qualify for the WeXL Scholastic Recognition banquet, held each May, honoring students who exhibit outstanding academic achievements. The school is very proud of the MCJROTC program, sponsored by the United States Government, providing extensive leadership training to students.
