    Dr. Bill Ziegler   
    As a graduate of Pottsgrove High School, I understand firsthand the incredible learning community of Pottsgrove High School, and I take great pride in the success of our students and staff.  PGHS is a diverse learning community focused on achievement for all students.  Our caring and highly qualified teachers work to challenge each student to high levels of learning.  PGHS has strong academics, exemplary music and art programs, competitive athletic teams, and a commitment to preparing all students for life beyond high school. This is just a sampling of the fine work and dedication of our students and staff. 
     
    A 9-12 high school of over 1,000 students and 100 plus faculty and staff members is located in the western end of Montgomery County.  Our students compete in the Pioneer Athletic Conference and the District One Conference. Our extra-curricular programs have won state championships in both music and athletics, and our DECA program
    has performed at the national level. 
     
    I believe that parental involvement is the number one determining factor in a student's education; as a result, I am committed to engaging parents and families in the learning process.  Contact me anytime if I can help or serve you in any way.
