Pittsfield Public Schools does their best to keep attending school as interesting, safe, and diverse as they can. However, just as other schools has their moments, so does Pittsfield Public Schools does. Many days I do not feel safe, other days it feels like it is just too quite and it worries me due to the fact that I am not used to that. I just want to see more kids like me, a student who cares about others, doesn't bring weapons and unnecessary things to school (which is everywhere), and cares about the future.

I would like to see more people caring about those who have already given up on themselves, and not letting students fail. Also, I would like to go to the bathroom without having the aroma of Juul, and without having to lean over to hold the door shut
Pittsfield schools have to work more on concentrating on the kid and not the test results. Pittsfield has a teacher against kid atmosphere. I have experienced numerous teachers using racist remarks right to my face and when going to the teachers supervisors nothing was done. Calling students losers and telling them they will never amount to anything does not set one up for success.
