Paul Pewitt High School is a prime example of an exceptionally-operating establishment, providing a disciplined education. Pewitt is extremely enveloped in serving in the community and stands as the primary sight with the Omaha-Naples area. The school certainly has a family atmosphere where every student and teacher has a rather close relationship. The academics and athletics program are both on the rise, seeing test scores and athletic competition increase in success. Both the academic and extra-curricular are thriving at Pewitt High, seeing true success in the endeavors of student, teachers, and coaches. I have high regard.

Pewitt highschool is one of the best high schools in our district, in sports and academics. Our community is tight knit and your friends feel like family. As a senior it has been a little tough these past few months but our school and principal have worked together to give us as much as they can plus a graduation. Something that other school districts could not guarantee. Instead of canceling or making it online our school waited it out and is giving us the one thing that we thought wasn't going to happen. I would send my kids to this school and I can proudly say that I am glad to be a Paul Pewitt graduate
The thing i liked the most about Pewitt is our community. We have such a great community and it shows at our football games. Our education is on its way to getting better since we got our new principal. Our new principal is very laid back and cool, we don't have any strict rules. The thing we do struggle most with is our discipline. Pewitt has a habit of disciplining the kids unequally for no reason they just get to decide what the punishment is. I think we need to have set rules for our discipline and maybe that would calm down all the kids still acting the way the do. For example a kid can get in a fight and only get three days of ISS, but a kid that just wears holy jeans gets sent home and wrote up. Overall I've had a great time here and have learned a lot, we have many new courses available now and were getting back to the way we use to be.
