Pine Bluff High is a great school. I enjoyed my years attending and my experiences. However, the school does need a few changes. Passionate teachers are very much needed. Students often find themselves passing a class with flying colors, but they did not learn anything. The teacher just passed out worksheets and he/she explained how it should be done. The teacher does not know if we actually learned anything or not. I can count on one hand, how many teachers actually care if their students learn. A pine bluff teacher's favorite sentence is, "I already earned my degree, i do not care if you get yours." That does not encourage us students to better. Pine bluff high needs to fix this problem fast.

Pine Bluff High school's educational environment is one of the main things I like. The educational experience has been wonderful and the teachers are always well prepared and ready to teach. The school's safety has always been a big concern with Pine Bluff High, we have great security guards who make sure everything is always okay and everyone is safe. Pine Bluff High has always been a good school to attend and it is the best high-school based on sports and academic capability to attend in Arkansas
I am a senior at Pine Bluff High School, who has been attending since my sophomore year. Many people look down on this school, but there are so many great opportunities here that students do not take advantage of. There are numerous Pre-AP and AP courses to choose from such as: AP World History, AP Physics, AP Biology, and Pre-AP Pre-Calculus. PBHS offers free breakfast and lunch to all students. There are various clubs and organizations to join, such as Beta Club, National Honor Society, Art Club, History Club, What's Next Pine Bluff, JROTC, our championship-winning sports teams, Choir, Band, Orchestra, etc... My school offers ACT Prep and allows for every student to get two free fee waivers for the actual ACT exam. Many of the teachers here care about the students’ education and are willing to stay after school just to help them with work.
