I have great experiences at my school! My favorite part during my high school career was getting to experience state basketball four times in a row with my best friends. I also love how dedicated the teachers are with helping each student to become the best they can be.

There is a range of academic clubs, sports, and art/drama clubs. People who are involved in a club usually participate all four years of their high school career. This school is mostly sports-minded, but there are also a lot of other options for extracurricular activities for other students. The administration staff and community are very supportive of activities.
I had a good experience at Pierce, but strongly disliked how athletics seemed to be more focused on than academics.
