Pine Forest is a great High School located in Fayetteville, NC. In my family, three generations have graduated from Pine Forest High School. I have enjoyed playing sports there for the last 4 years and this year I am able to attend the Community College and receive college credits at my school. I plan on attending a 4 year college next year and majoring in business. Being able take the business pathways courses at the community college is helping prepare me. Pine Forest provides transportation to and from the community college and I am still able to do this and play sports. Also, our school has the best school spirit in Cumberland County. The teachers and the students always pack the stands to support our athletes and students no matter what the sport is. I am going to miss Pine Forest High School when I graduate, but I am excited to see where my future will take me. Go Trojans!
Pine Forest High High School is, an overall, a great school. The environment of the school is state of the art. There are many things this school has to offer from academics to sports to clubs.
The academics is pretty good at this school. As with every other high school, there are some teachers that really want you to succeed and will help you every step of the way whereas other teachers really don't care. The students are generally kind and are very welcoming. They hold a lot of enthusiasm and school spirit. There are a lot of clubs every student can get involved in, there is a club for everyone.
The principal of this school is the best principal I have ever had, not to mention, he also won principal of the year award. He understands every student and he helps anybody in every way he can whether it's mentally, physically, or financially, you name it! Although the principal is a very busy man, he will always remember your name and face even if he just met you one time.
