Piedra Vista High School Reviews
PVHS has the characteristics of a public school. Teens are a little wild, but the teaching faculty is amazing and cares about students. Once I got to college, it was clear how much PV had prepared me to excel in classes. Guidance counselors and the college readiness staff are the reason I had a full-ride scholarship through college.
There is a severe rivalry that has the terrible habit of making the waters sour. Teachers are constantly leaving and looking for better jobs, ad I can not blame them. The school system was at its peak, but I can not speak so highly of it now.
I love this place very much. It holds many memories starting from freshman year. I am now a senior and I continue to appreciate this high school very much. Fitting in was quite hard at first because the school is so big and around 2000 people attend the school. The campus is a little big as well but finding my way was very easy. Learning new things everyday is pretty great.
I have been in PV for four years now, one of the longest duration of time for schools I have attended. The teachers and the administrators are always very warm and welcoming and the Panther Pride is through the roof. Everyone at the school supports each other and creates a welcoming environment. In a way, we stand as one and its a very safe feeling when there are like minds around you. Everyone at PV strives to be the very best but the school isn’t completely perfect. While PV overall is a great school the food is less than desirable and while there are clubs and activities it’s hard to find time to join one. That’s something I would want to change.
I did not really have a good experience at this high school students are judgemental and they tried giving me detention for four tardies and other students had more and got away with it.
I like everything. I like the teachers that help me in everything a help me to pursue and achieve my dreams. The campus is fairly big so that everyone can fit. The dances are always fun. Lastly, the education I learn helps me to better understand the world around me.
What I liked about Piedra Vista High School is they prepared you for college. That there is certain days when you are a senior and they helped you with applications or your senior exhibition. The staff is great on what they do like teaching, helping you with school, or helping your emotional needs. What could improve the school is the school lunches. Since the lunches are very small portion and there healthy foods are very not appeasing to eat.
I played football there and had a great time with everything that happened at the school but the administration was very poor. The teachers in the hall would dis agree with them and my personal though about then is that they did stuff for themselves more then for there job and the school but other then that the school was great. I played more then just football there, I also played rugby and wrestled. I really thought that it was a great place to go for activies and other fevents
I was the quiet kid mostly and focused on my academics. However, there was still time to enjoy everything in my high school career and PV has helped me prepare for that next step in life.
I transferred to Piedra Vista High School during my freshman year, and when I got there, they made me feel welcome! The staff and students are very kind. They have a very safe campus, the teachers will care for the students and help them with anything going on, either its school or in life. I learned how to prepare myself for college and I had an amazing experience there. I don't think that there's nothing that I would change at Piedra Vista High School.
They need to have off campus lunch. As well as a little more freedom. Overall, it is a good school. The choir program is very good.
The school was very organized and had many opportunities to help the students grow. There were many different programs to be involved in. I would love to see those programs grow even more!
I would like them to add more things for college more opportunities for clubs at frisbee golf and chest and all those other kinds of things. The teachers seem to not really care about the students as much as the other schools around him.
Piedra Vista highschool over the past four year has recived an A rating in the state of new Mexico based of off academics. The majority of the teaching staff is extremely college supportive and is willing to put in extra work with students including after school hours. Though, if there was any complaint for me as a student is the lack of school spirit our sports programs have, the student section turnout is subpar.
No school is ever perfect but Piedra Vista for the most part had great teachers and an entertaining sports program. It was actually enjoyable to go to games.
I would love to see security, support, and overall administration change. Our principles and vice principles aren't very good and seem to care more about scaring kids than helping them. We recently got rid of security this year, and then Aztec had a school shooting. None of us feel very safe. There also isn't very much peer support of each other; there's a lot of stuck-up people.
Piedra Vista High School has A LOT of work to do. It's teachers obviously don't want to be doing what they are doing, they don't prepare you for college or the workforce, and it is quite honestly a waste of my time to attend school here every day. It seems that there are few teachers and administrators who actually care about the well being of their students.
