Pocomoke High School (PHS), a Maryland Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, located near the cypress 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.

The “Warrior” represents the town of Pocomoke’s proud Native American heritage.  The Algonquin word “Pocomoke” was originally believed to mean “dark water” but scholars now believe it to be translated into “broken ground."  The Algonquins interacted peacefully with traders and settlers as they exchanged animal skins and pelts for metal tools, cloth, etc.   It is this history of cooperativeness and friendship that still exists in Pocomoke thanks to our Native American beginning.  

Our Mission

Pocomoke High School, an enthusiastic rural learning partnership of parents, educators, and community agencies, empowers all students to meet rigorous academic standards and to develop into responsible, involved life-long learners who can excel in their endeavors, contribute positively to their society, and fulfill their personal dreams.
