My overall experience with PCSSD has been nothing short of amazing. Due to the administration and staff of teachers I had at the schools I attended, my educational journey was great! In high school, we were allowed to create opportunities and programs as students for school. In creating opportunities it gave the students a voice which I was very pleased for. My school specifically prepared me for college in more aspects than required. So, because of Pulaski School District I have pursued higher learning!

Pulaski County Special SChool District (PCSSD) provided me with a good, strong education in a diverse environment. I will be graduating from Joe T. Robinson High School. I have been a student at Joe T. since kindergarten and I am the third generation of my family to attend Joe T. I am proud to say, I attend a school with students of many different races and religions. I have made a lot of friends over the years and developed relationships that I hope to continue in years to come. Almost all my teachers took pride in their job and taught me to the best of their ability. They have a great athletic program and offer a variety of clubs and activities and many other opportunities to be involved. The counselors are always available and helpful. I feel like PCCSD has prepared me for the future. Over the years, I have heard a lot of negativity about PCSSD and I can honestly say that most of the rumors are false and I would highly recommend Joe T. Robinson! Go Senators!
I am a graduate from Maumelle High School. My four years here have been amazing and I couldn’t ask for a better high school experience. I’ve learned so much , met people from different walks of life and long time friends. Maumelle helped me find out who I am and my purpose in this world. I love my principles and my teachers. Being a hornet was an experience i’ll always remember and cherish. COVID-19 took my senior year away from me , didn’t think it would end like this , no prom , a four guest graduation, & all around sadness because senior is the best year of high school.
