My experience in Pinkston itself was okay. The part that I loved was being a collegiate Academy student. The comprehensive side on the other hand, did not have technology, the classrooms were outdated, and the teachers were not all the best. The school itself was old and many of the restrooms did not work. Very limited electives and resources were available. School spirit was non existent and lots of clubs and sports were not funded enough. More attention is given to sports than academics. The arts programs were not given funding. There was little involvement with from the comprehensive parents. On the comprehensive side, homework was not enforced because students “ wouldn’t do it”. The students on the comprehensive did not respect teachers. There were only a few comprehensive teachers that did their job well and truly cared for their students. My rating is simply based on the school and not the collegiate academy from which I have no complaints.

The collegiate academy is the best out there. The teachers and staff do they nest to keep their students on track! I love the college experience at El Centro College. I am comfortable and never would regret choosing Pinkston Preparatory Collegiate Academy

I really enjoy attending Pinkston High School. I have not experience any thing bad yet, at Pinkston High School. But what I would like to change about about Pinkston High School, are the class that they do not offer that other school offer. I would like for Pinkston High School to American Sign Language (ASL) as a class. I think that many student would love to learn ASL. Some student do not just want to take Spanish to get their two years of foreign language. But over all Pinkston High School is a pretty decent. But it just wasn't my best in high school experience
