While the teachers are friendly and supportive, I find that the academics are not very challenging. This is most likely because our school is filled with kids who do not try hard at all. These kids do not try because they think they have no future. They believe that since they do not want to go to college, school doesn't matter. I think administration should come up with ways to motivate these students. Instead of making them feel like less because they aren't good at school, maybe try to encourage them to continue on to post secondary education, such as trade schools.

From my experience at Pendleton County High School, I have learned that it is a very caring environment. All students have one on one relationship with the teachers, and the teachers genuinely care about the students. If one is in need, someone is there to help. The academic part of the school is maintained very well and we have a good state rating. I think one thing that should be changed at Pendleton County High School is preparing the students for college. We need to have more guidance with scholarships and just questions in general.
Teachers here focus more on kids wanting to attend college.They push these kids harder academically.While on the other hand kids who aren't as well with school and books and better with visuals and hands on work tend to fall behind in there education just enough to graduate.There is less focus on kids who want to go to a trade school or are just not well at schoolwork in general. I attended this school just a few years ago and trust me you pretty much had to beg to get help with something you didn't catch on to as well as other students. There are teachers who generally care but only a handful and it is hard for just a few to help everyone.
