My 4 years at Pike County Central taught me the importance of preparing for college. Because of this, I spent my Senior year getting a head start on college by taking 5 dual college courses. I can't think of anything that Onwoild change about my PCCHS experience. The teachers and faculty are great people who care about their students future!
My experience at PCCHS was incredible. The students will welcome you with open arms, no matter what you think, you will be able to find people who are like you and people that share interests and common traits. The school spirit however is easily the biggest thing. Everyone supports the school’s extracurriculars. From Basketball boys and girls, to football, all the way to band and chorus. There’s something for everyone and there will be massive school spirit behind it. However, a draw back is that there are a few people that will still stick to their cliques, but that’s to be expected at our age.
