I have gone to Pendleton High School for all 4 years of my High school career. All of the teachers are so kind and inviting. I have been involved in the Cross Country, Track and Field, Swim, Dance, Swing and A Capella choirs. The athletic program is very involving. Every team I have ever participated in has felt like a family. The music and Arts program has been a great opportunity for me to meet new people from different styles of life that I would not have been friends with otherwise. I have also taken AP classes as well as honor classes and they are taught with poise and to the current curriculum. I love the staff here and how well they teach the subject they are assigned and I love how they attempt to make a connection to all of their students in some way. Pendleton High School is a great place to get through High School!

Within the Pendleton School District there are many opportunities. Such opportunities range from music programs to robotics teams. Throughout my time in the District I have seen positive growth. Furthermore I believe that the District has a strong foundation in staff--all of which seem ready and able to help to the best of their abilities. The Pendleton School District makes an effort to represent all their students which is very important. Some aspects I would like the District to improve on would be their food and parent involvement. The food in the Pendleton School District is fairly standard and it would be nice to be offered something that wasn't frozen and reheated. When it comes to parent involvement, there are activities for parents to participate in, but they are not well advertised. The Pendleton School District should advertise to parents more to get them more involved.
Going to school in the Pendleton School District, was an overall great experience, everyone was welcoming, and the teachers were great, and very supportive.
