Pinckney Community High School Reviews

There are some really good teachers at the school that actually help students prepare for college and life, but there is also the fair share of bad teachers. Some of the sports programs do good, but I know that many are underbudgeted (except football which gets all the money) and some of the coaching staff have questionable credentials. I will say though, that the clubs like ACT 2 are a lot of fun and I would recommend joining any of the after-school activities at the school. Diversity is like zero at the school and there aren't many cultural activities, but the students do try to engage in other cultures (though I think this area is probably what Pinckney needs to work on the most). Overal I think the school is a safe place to learn, but the district does need to invest in more academic resources and needs to get a better food provider.

My experience with Pinckney High school was very eye-opening. I realized that you get out what you put in. The teachers are always willing to help, and there are many academic opportunities for students of all types, but not for freshmen and sophomores. I do believe there is a significant lack of communication between the students and the administration. Most of the clubs are pointless, but quite a few students engage in them, so it's good for being involved in the school. Winter at PHS is treacherous.
Music Programs are amazing!

There is a Jazz Band offered as an after school program, these kids are super ambitious and talented. Many of these students are also in Symphonic, Marching and Wind Ensemble as well. Majority of these musicians receive scholarships and pursue music in college.

The ACT2 program is extracurricular, this a theater program and is exciting for the whole community! Most of these kids continue acting, production in sound, lighting and stage, directing, set design, makeup, and the many other areas of putting on a production throughout their college careers.

There is an Equestrian Club. That's just so cool, need I say more?!

Most of the students I know at PHS all want to to take AP classes and earn college credit while in high school.

Being in NHS is a great achievement as well, many have this goal.
