About PCHS

Stadium Access Is Limited to PCHS Students and Staff Monday Through Friday from 7am until 5:30pm

Pekin Community High School is located in Central Illinois approximately ten miles southwest of Peoria. As one of the largest downstate high schools, the park-like campus occupies 125 acres in the heart of Pekin. Including the Holman Tech Ed Center, the main campus buildings cover approximately 550,000 square feet. The school serves 2,100 students in its 133 classrooms and has multiple computer labs, a foreign language lab and the F.M. Peterson Theater which seats 600. It also includes a natatorium and two gymnasiums. Every classroom has a SmartBoard and is fully integrated with technology; we are also proud to offer blended, flipped and online classes. Career and technical education prepares youth for a wide range of careers, from child care, registered nursing, business, culinary arts, imaging, engineering, JROTC, computer technician, to manufacturing and construction. The CTE program provides students with college dual credit, advanced placement, certification, or the background to easily transition into a career or post-high school training and education. We offer 56 different CTE courses by 20 very qualified teachers. Our extensive number of extra-curricular programs and diversified, rigorous curricula allow students to excel in the classroom and beyond.
