Growing up in a small town, it was nice to graduate from the same school my mom and grandmother received there high diploma from. Also knowing the people that you attended school with and the teachers. Pickens County High was a great experience in many ways from a freshman to a senior, many great experiences from playing sports to making great friends, staff and administrative.

My experience at Pickens was great I instantly made so many new friends because I came in my junior year. Throughout my years of school I have struggled in certain subjects. But my grades have been greater then they ever have been before and that is to the teachers at Pickens I love them all and it is a great school!
Pickens High School is in a relatively small town. This can be a bonus as well as a downside when it comes to reviewing the experience this school has to offer. While it is nice to be in small class settings and to know most of the people you go to school with, it can also get in the way with news spreading or gossip. Overall, the small knit school experience is awesome and allows you to better have a relationship with your teachers.
