Pierce County High School Reviews
I love the curriculum in school, I've learned so much from coming from Wayne county high to Pierce last year! They're definitely a good school, education wise, but structure wise, not so much. I also don't like that we don't have very much student involvement, such as pep rallies, like most schools do.
Pierce County High School is one of the best schools in my area and a high ranking school in the state. We have been told that other principles from across the state come to our school to observe how we operate so successfully. How can you not be pumped to be apart of a school such as that?! Our school is full of pride which makes everything more fun. Students participate in a wide variety of "spirit" boosting actives wether its goofy dress up days such as the 12 days of Christmas or packing out the stands for Friday night football games. Most importantly, our school focusses on academic success and providing us with numerous opportunities to excel in academics, not only for during high school but for college as well by providing college classes worth college credits. The combination of all of this makes our school unique and is why I would choose my school every time.
There are numerous extra curricular activities available at PCHS. The wide range of athletics include football, baseball, basketball, softball, competition cheer, etc. Alongside the sports, this school also offers many fine arts options. These programs include marching/symphonic band, musical theater, one-act, all state chorus, film club, etc. There are many diverse people who participate in each extracurricular activity. Our administration shows their full support by attending most of the after school activities.
