Pierce City High School is located in small town call Pierce City. The teachers and the staff are very helpful and most of the time, nice. They would always give you an opportunity to improve and if you take, you will be assure to get a good grade in that class. Pierce City High School has a lot of school spirit. During the school year of 2017-2018, the Student Council adviser started a little competition to see which class (class of 2018, class of 2019, class of 2020, class of 2021) would have the most spirit. This includes going to sports game, cheering the loudest for your grade, etc. Pierce City High School has the good atmosphere of a simple high school life.

Pierce City High School is a small public school in rural Missouri. Although it is a small school it is full of opportunities through its multiple clubs, sports programs and dual credit classes. Through participating in clubs such as being a member in the National FFA Organization I have been able to earn the chance to go to Louisville Kentucky, Indianapolis Indiana, and compete against my peers at the FFA State Convention in Columbia Missouri. Through the dual credit classes I have been able to get a head start on college credit hours.
I love the small town life. I loving driving down the road and being able to wave at just about everyone. Pierce City is great not only for the supportive community, but the staff. Teachers love helping their students out and it's really helpful. Also, you're not just your teacher's student, but their friend.
