The experience I encountered at Pine Forest High School has been the uplifting, most hard working, inspiring, and a teachable group of teachers I have had for the my ninth, and tenth grade.
This school's sport department long distance, and football has also taught me team leadership, agreeing to disagree, and good sportsmanship towards your members , just as important among others on the opposite team. We have grown to help each other by talking our problems out after class, excepting our differences.
Thank you for the opportunity to have my experiences shared among all of our school districts.
Sincerely,
Aiesha Hernandez 10th grader

Pine Forest High School is by far the most diverse school I have yet to encounter. Where minorities take up a majority of the student population you get to experience and become a part of new backgrounds and cultures that would've never expected. We have pretty decent sports teams that have been known to win conference champions and making into state play offs. On the academic aspect, there could be some improvement as I feel like we could have better education and better teachers who actually enjoy teaching rather then doing it just for money. Overall the expiernce at this school isn't a bad one. The people you meet there are ones that you will never forget!
Honestly, coming into high school as a freshman was terrifying. I had no friends, the school was huge and the numbers for rooms was soooo confusing. But throughout these 4 years, I made lifelong friends and connections with people. My counselor, shoutout to Mr. Davis answered any questions I ever had, he helped whenever he could, and made sure to reach out to me if he thought I would be interested in colleges, or things of that nature. My teachers always encouraged my success and when the school showed out they SHOWED OUT. Spirit week, the senior picnic, even the theatre shows they put on, everything was inclusive and fun no matter what. Now as a senior and as I approach my final days at Pine Forest, I am more than glad I chose this school to grow as a person and learn who I was and prepare myself for the next step in life.
