I am senior at Pick Central, who will be graduating Saturday May 23rd! Through the four years I’ve been here, I learned so much within this school, and our school pride. It’s a pretty good school to attend, I hope the school spirit lives on for many years to come. I have some of my favorite teachers and administrators there, I wish I can go back one more time with my class to say goodbyes and have fun but covid-19 has made that impossible. I had some pretty good memories at this school, I’m glad I ended up going here besides any other high school.

The staff and administration at PHSC is incredible. There are lots of people and they manage to get everything done. I love the way all the teachers and staff make sure they get to know you and make time for you. We are able to express our thoughts and opinions without getting judged. They constantly make sure we are safe and know what’s going on in the school whether it’s sports, theatre, or clubs. The food service is great with lots of variety and there is a club for anyone!
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!
