I grew up in Pigeon Forge Tennessee and there is no other place I would rather be! Pigeon Forge High School has prepared me for the real world in a variety of ways. Pigeon Forge is a smaller school, the teacher and student relationship is awesome. I have became really close to all of my teachers and they all have took part in preparing me for college and the real world. My basketball coach especially has. My basketball coach Emory Cain has taught me more than just how to play basketball. He has taught me how to be a leader, how to be mentally tough, how to be responsible, and most importantly how to set an example for others to act upon. I am thankful to be a student at Pigeon Forge High School.

Pigeon Forge is a great school to attend. I had a great experience there with the faculty, staff, and fellow students. The sports programs are great and have really exceeded within the past couple of years. The coaches know what they are doing and are very competitive. Go TIGERS!
Pigeon Forge High School has given me nothing but the best opportunities to aide in the start of my future. The administrators know about every student by name and they know exactly what each student is involved in whether it is clubs, sports, or extracurriculars. The faculty is extremely caring towards the choices made by me and my peers; I know every teacher personally and each of them makes it known to me that if I ever need any help with my schoolwork or with things going on in my life then I could come to them to them for support. Additionally, my peers at Pigeon Forge High School encourage each other to apply for scholarships and to continue their education at a college level. Without everyone at Pigeon Forge High School, I doubt I'd be the person I am today, or that I'd even be here at all.
