While attending pickerington high school north for two years, I can say that it was great. The academics, the size of the school, the cafeteria food, it was great. It was definitely a culture shock, because to come from a predominately black school then transfer to a predominately white school can definitely change your view on things. I would say that the school is definitely lacking diversity, but I never had a discrimination or racist experience personally while I attended. Now, have students made racially insensitive remarks and posts on social media about the African American minority? Yes, but no school is perfect and that incident had happened before I started going to school there.

Personally, I feel as if Pickerington local school district has done me well throughout my years of education. Although Pickerington is great academically, I feel that there can still be improvement overall. Not only are academics the majority of a school districts importance, the little things such as diversity, sports and college readiness, play a large rule in overall experience of a school district. As we age as district throughout generations, we learn techniques, and technologies along with tools that create a safer and better overall environment to learn, grow and belong.
The Pickerington Local School District is a great place for students to achieve academically. Many educational opportunity's are offered including AP and college classes. I began attending Pickerington schools in 5th grade and every staff member I came in contact with was very genuine. The teachers are very helpful and they help me stay motivated with my school work. Not only is Pickerington great educationally, but it is also great for sports and clubs. The staff here wants to make sure that every child is involved in anything they please. It could be from band or football, drug free club or even diversity club. Pickerington is a great place for children to begin their education and is highly recommended.
