The best thing that I liked about Pershing is that everyone was treated like family. From the staff to the students, there was much fun along with discipline and work. The thing that Pershing needs to improve most in would be the recruition of more teachers and student. Also, the involvement of students.

In 9th grade, I thought Pershing was a good school. They had some good programs like Orchestra, Dance, Band, and Art and since I'm an art person, it helped me a lot for my career. However, once I reached 10th-12th, they started to cut a lot of programs for creative students. I manage to graduate with no issues but it would've been nice to have an art class for all 4 years.
I had an awesome time at Pershing High School. I was on the volleyball and tennis team, we was all city champs 7 years in a row in tennis. I also attend v-tech so that I could learn a trade while in school. Pershing has many opportunities available we just had to take advantage of them.
