Pierce Junior/Senior High School Reviews

Pierce Junior/Senior High School has teachers that care about you and your, but it is apparent that some teachers and administrators care more about sports and testing and how they compare to other schools than they care about their students. They don't allow the students to learn at their own pace.

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.
