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 attend Sylvan Hills High school, I love my school, there are tons of fun things that we do such as at the football game we have a student section called the Grizz Zone which is so much fun. We get really loud, as all fans should, we have so fun. This week we are doing spirt week, each year we do it before homecoming!! My dad works for the school district and he really doesn't get paid a whole lot of money, there are four of us kids living in a household. I honestly don't know why they think that paying my dad 9.40 an hour could possibly be enough to feed us, pay the bills, allow us to have fun, AND get gas for the cars!! It really sucks because we can't do a whole lot because of the shortage of money. Both my brothers play football, I do extracurricular activities and my sister is in the choir. So by the end of the month, we really don't have a whole bunch of money to do a lot with!!
PCSSD needs some major changes by listening to and being more involved with their teachers, students and parents. Parental involvement needs to be at all ages, not just through middle school. Administration at school level really needs to be addressed so that you have admin that’s actually interested in ALL their students, not just their sports programs.
