My daughter absolutely loves Pickering! She refuses to go to any other school and she is a junior! She went to Evan's for a couple of years and absolutely hates it. Loved her friends but as far as administration and teachers she was not pleased. Couldnt ask for better teachers and amazing administration at Pickering! GO LADY RED DEVILS!

I have been at Pickering High school since the 7th grade. I have mixed feelings about my experience. In the beginning, it was a bit rough. It was because junior high and high school are in the same building, so the grades mixed. The education has been rocky, teachers have left every year. Our sports, they all excel for the most part except for our football team and baseball team. Also, our school spirit was never the best; though in recent years, our school spirit has gone up to encourage students to come to school more. For example, I actually enjoy coming to school now.
Teachers don't care about education, most are just focused on drama and the football team. New principle is doing a good job for the school now.
