Pine Bush Senior High School Reviews

I came to Pine Bush during my sophomore year. I came into the school with a rather negative attitude because I was against moving to the area. Despite my negative attitude towards the school, I had to do my best to keep my grades on track. I met some outstanding teachers than became more like mentors for me. My art teacher was my all time favorite. Pine Bush has an exceptional art and english department. The gym teachers are the absolute worst. They take their jobs way to serious, and don't realize that they affect students GPA's tremendously. The guidance counselors there don't seem to be much help (at least mine wasn't). Administration is more focused on pinning students in detention rather than helping them and diffusing situations. The nurses are the best people that school has. They treat students more like their own kids. They care, not only about students education. They care about their well being and whats best for them. Overall Pine Bush is an okay school.

Although I graduated in 2014, PBHS was a decent high school. The faculty were usually helpful towards students in concerns of success. The school is very community involved and always seeking to help. Even though it's quite diverse, more education in diversity would be ideal. Offering more classes on languages other than Spanish and French would help.
The summer activities that you can do at the school gives you credits towards certain classes so you don't have to retake it later in the future. Teachers help a lot. The principals get involved with school spirit and push their students towards the right path. The school does lots of activities and clubs and sports that students can participate in.
