Pequot Lakes Public Schools Reviews

Pequot Lakes High School is all around a great school. The school provides great teachers who are extremely good at what they do and the teachers are what make the school so great. They are always willing to go above and beyond just to make sure you are getting the best education possible. The school has so much things to participate in such as sports, speech, clubs, knowledge bowl, and even chess club. The high school gives us so many opportunities to such a different variety of classes anywhere from health sciences to aviation classes. They offer a lot of CIS college credit classes and they give kids the chance to complete their Associates Art degree which it super nice to have that going into college. They also offer their students internships so help us get a glimpse of what some jobs are like! Pequot Lakes High School is, in my opinion the best school around the Brainerd Lakes Area!

Overall, this shool is average. Diversity is an issue because of location, butI believe that most of the kids here are pretty close-minded. More diverse classes could also be implimented to help kids decided a career and keep students interested in learning.
They have a very good program that allows for you to take college courses in high school, which I believe everyone should take advantage of. The CIS program, while difficult, helps prepare you for college far better than the PSEO option.
