The academic offerings at Pembroke Academy was substantially satisfying compared to other small public schools in the area. I enjoyed almost all of my teachers and classes while attending Pembroke Academy as they thoroughly enjoyed the work they were doing and assisted the students with anything they needed which included personal matters. I believe the structure of the school in terms of layout and general wear of the facilities offered could be improved but I understand that it's lack of budget prevents it from making repairs and modern updates in relation to other schools. The Chromebook initiative in particular, which offered free Chromebooks to all incoming freshmen at Pembroke Academy, pleasantly surprised me as a way of lowering barriers within education between varying social economic classes and I strongly support their decison even though upperclassmen did not receive these benefits. I also believe the administration sufficiently prepares students for post graduation.

Pembroke Academy may seem like it's not a very good school because of the size. It is very small but after being there for just a year, you know it is much more. The teachers and staff are supportive and welcoming to all students. Guidance counselors will help all students with questions and help them reach their goals, even if the student isn't theirs. Teachers involve current issues and topics into their lessons. Many teachers also try to prepare students for the real world. Sports and arts are treated equally. This high school isn't a stereotypical high school, it's much better.
My experience with Pembroke Academy was mostly good. It had its ups and down, just like any other school. My favorite thing about this school is the amount of school spirit we have. We have events like the powder puff football game, spirit days, homecoming and our favorite event winter carnival. Winter carnival at PA was the best experience of my high school career. At PA, we take it very seriously. We spend all week participating in spirit days and events. My favorite part was hallway decorations. My class has created phenomenal decorations the past 3 years all according to our theme. We may have only won once, our senior year,but it is in favor of the seniors. The energy during winter carnival is something I am unsure how to describe, but we are all yelling and screaming to support our classmates.There are funny moments that none of us will forget, and there are also sad moments watching it all come to end.I am thankful to be apart of a school that has as much school spirit as mine.
