Pickerington High School Central Reviews
Pick. Central is a very great high school! It has excellent academics, teachers, and sports teams. People are welcoming so you make friends pretty easy! It also has a lot of clubs/ after-school activities to join such as multi-cultural club, drug free club, etc. Administrators and guidance counselors are invested in their students and are willing to help and guide you through high school while getting you ready for college. The school is also diverse and gives everyone of each race, ethnicity, and gender equal opportunities! The one thing I would change is probably having fries as a side for lunch everyday. Speaking of which, the cafeteria has many food options for vegetarians/vegans. There are also 2 sub assembly stations available for those who decide not to eat what’s on the menu for that day. Overall, Pickerington High School Central is a great school!
I am a very proud alum of PHSC! I feel like I am definitely the person I am today because of my experiences at this school and just the Pickerington school district in general. I was involved and sports and I can say that we had fantastic coaches, staff, and facilities that helped prepare us for competition and potentially college athletics. Pickerington is looked at very highly in terms of athletics and academics by colleges, employers, and citizens of Ohio and I would definitely recommend this school and district to any family considering moving into the district.
While I have been at this school, I have had great teachers and terrible teachers. I have known great people, average people, and people I can't stand. The food sucks, and is unhealthy as a general rule, up the lunch ladies are kind and understanding. We had a teacher start a relationship with an underage student this year, so that was interesting. The focus on sports ( and by sports I mean football and sometimes basketball, forget the rest ) are great, we earned multiple state championships just this year! There is also a focus on academics which push students to do well on standardized tests and get good grades which is a positive thing.
