Great school for my kids! The academics, the sports, the activities are all as good as we've ever seen. They are region champs year after year in sports of all season. The academics is as challenging as needed to get the students prepared to enter and excel in major universities. The school is diverse in race, ethnicity as well as socioeconomically. Pendleton also has outstanding student involvement, high teacher moral and great community support. The school is not too big nor is it too small. It is very close to Clemson University, Anderson and Greenville. All of which allows students to experience a ton of cultural experiences.

I love Pendleton High School! It is not too big, nor too small. We are one of the best schools in my opinion. The teachers actually care about your education, and they teach you what you need to know to succeed. Many of the teachers at Pendleton impact your life for the better. They teach us how it is going to be like when I get to College. Pendleton High School has many opportunities you can participate in. The school has a lot of diversity. I love that I can be myself at my school.
Pendleton High School was good for two types of people, those going into agriculture or those interested in sports. The arts and engineering fields are not supported at Pendleton, and they barely pay attention to their students. They focus all their energy on Agriculture and dismiss those students in arts, humanities, engineering, or science fields.

The only positive of Pendleton is their teachers, many of which have left since I graduated due to the poor administration at the school. Me and many of my classmates had interests in college, but no one helped, supported, or encouraged us to pursue higher education. They also have a large bullying and drug problem as well, many of the students would sit outside after school dealing out of the back of their trucks. I do not reccomend Pendleton in the least, and at the very least wish to see them support a wider range of students as well.
