Pine Creek, don't call yourself a college prep high school when you are not! I'm studying chemistry in college right now and it's really hard besides the obvious reasons. Pine Creek didn't teach basic real world skills. They didn't teach basic math or science skills either.
Review Pine Creek High School
Nice community, great teachers, and outstanding councilors! This school has been very welcoming to military families.
Pine Creek is one of the best when it comes to variety. There are fewer core requirements than other schools, and after you complete them you will have plenty of elective space. If you don't want to take regular senior English, you can take British Literature to fulfill the same requirements. In math and science, courses are even more flexible, so do not be surprised if you end up taking a physics class with students from all four grade levels. You will find classes to match your specific interests, from graphic novels to racket sports to astronomy. Unfortunately, this means that creating a schedule can be a hectic time for both you and your counselor. You might not end up with your first choice every time, but it is very unlikely you will be stuck in a class you hate.
