I have had a great experience at Cumberland County Schools! I have attended Pine Forest High from of my Sophomore up until my Senior year! Our principal is very determined to make everyone and everything matter in our school! He has worked to further security in our school to ensure that every student and staff member feels safe! He works with students if they have ideas to better our school. For example: He was willing to allow our Writers Guild Club to have a school newspaper. If we showed the dedication to continue our idea.
The staff is very flexible and several teachers will work with students! ( If the need arises) However, every staff member is serious about following our dress code and not being tardy for class! Pine Forest High School has been a great in helping me prepare for graduation.

I genuinely love the school I am attending, as I am surrounded by people that are academically at my level and the teachers love their students. I look at the students I am surrounded by here and I see that all of them have a great future ahead of them. This school is very preppy and supports the sports and I love it! In terms of academics however, I feel that it is looked down upon and I personally look down upon it as well because work is really just to get a good grade, not really education that you'll carry with you for the rest of your life. Regardless though, we all do the required work and it is a win-win for the teachers and students. :) Overall, I love this school so much. It's amazing.
