Pine Bush has a great academic approach. Most teachers are good at what they do. The school also does a great job with providing different clubs. I would like to change how some students are disciplined. With racist children in this school it effect the minorities. The problem is when the minorities make a statement or get into an argument with the racist kids, us minorities are the ones who get seen as the bad kids, and we suffer the consequence of detention or sports suspension, when the other kids are seen fine. Also the school focuses on 3 sports even if they are not the ones bringing home the titles. The sports that do the best aren't even the ones that are recognized.

Pine Bush High School is a great school if you surround yourself with encouraging peers and teachers. I hope to see more respect among students and an environment where students have a relationship with their guidance counselor. In my experience, some counselors are helpful, and others seem to not care about their student's confusion about complicated processes like applying to college. Unfortunately, this problem seems to be widespread among many high schools and universities.
I like and dislike many things about Pine Bush Senior High School. To start with the things I like, I enjoy how diverse the school is, and I have had the luxury of growing up with people of all different kinds of backgrounds. People generally get along well and like a typical school, there is a huge diversity of personalities as well. Most of the teachers genuinely want to help their students succeed. Sports are a big aspect of the school and many people go to games to support the team. On to the things I dislike, I did not enjoy how crammed the hallways are. With over 2000 students, once that bell rang it would take me the 4 minutes I had between periods to get to class with kids walking in all different directions throughout the halls. The bathrooms are extremely run down and there are always kids messing with them and ruining them even more. . I am a senior now and I can not complain about my overall education and experience at Pine Bush Senior High School.
