This fall I am going to be a Senior at Pine Bush High School. I started in Circleville Elementary school, then went to Circleville Middle School, and now I go to PBHS. The two middle schools are very different, so when you get to high school there is a lot of diversity among the students. Most of the teachers are nice and so are the students. A lot of the equipment hasn't been replaced since I started elementary school. The band program for example, has only received cuts and losses in the recent years. We need new instruments, and I would love it if we could have a marching band again.

The teachers are very helpful and caring towards students. There are plenty of clubs and sports to join as well as AP and college courses to take. However there are issues with making proper decisions about potential delays or closings due to poor weather. There are also issues with over-crowding on school buses. Overall, Pine Bush High School is a great school.
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.
