Pickens County School District Reviews

High school teachers saw everything and was there for it all. The good, bad, tragic and lazy times in our lives. They always had our backs and we could count on them at any times. Friday nights under the lights was so much more than football. It was where our community came together like family, united and cheered for out team win or lose. Sports running my body in 500 degree weather doing sprints. My coaches were very supportive and always there for me. My overall experience in High school was amazing!

Pickens High School is a great school to obtain a high school diploma. However, you cannot just go to this school to get a diploma, you have to earn it. Great school with great sports/activities!
My experience at Pickens County schools were not too bad. The teachers and staff try there best, given the circumstances. The students tend to act out a lot and get into trouble. More could be done about troubled home students like I was. Although the teachers try there best and a few helped me overcome a lot of adversity, and stress trying to graduate.
