Piggott High School Reviews

One thing I would have to say that I love about this school is how close everyone is. A vast majority of the faculty live in Piggott and make themselves available to the students when they need extra help with coursework. If a student needed someone to talk about an issue at home or with other students the teachers make themselves available to help those students to speak to the counselor about the issues. I also have to say that the band program has become phenomenal in recent years. What used to be good is now amazing. One thing I would like to see change, however, is the lack of study halls that the students have. Maybe don't give students in lower grade levels study halls, but consider giving them to Juniors and Seniors. Those students take harder classes because they're reaching the end of their schooling and perhaps they're even taking college courses. They may need extra time during the school day to do work for those classes.

I attended Piggott High School and there are a few things that need to change. The Principal and VP often do not do their jobs. This is irritating because if a students goes to them for something serious, it needs to be taken care of. Also, I feel this school does not prepare you for college. Throughout my high school career, I do not believe I have learned the material that should prepare me for college.
Piggott High School has very nice gyms and very caring teachers. Through my experience going to school there, there is not anything I would change about it.
