I love my high school! Pine forest is one of the best high schools in Escambia County. There aren’t many cliques at pine forest, which is a good thing because we all kind of blend together and befriend one another. There are loads of activities that students can join in to have an excellent high school experience! There are different types of academy's to choose from that help prepare you for the real world. Overall, pine forest is an excellent school.

Pine forest is an extremely friendly school, while it does not have the most updated facilities or the most academic students there is less trouble with peers troubling each other than most schools, the academics are like two different schools being the below average and the significantly above average(due to academy classes) to change it I would provide more freedom for teachers to make rulings versus those blanketed to districts as there are different circumstances based on school, unfortunately that is a level above the school so I will have to work very hard to effectively change this.
I am a student who had the misfortune of graduating from this sorry excuse of a school. The staff were unprofessional. Anything that will keep them their borderline C rating. Any regular class is a disruptive environment that cannot be well kept and any honors or AP class is taught by someone who probably doesn't have the degree to teach it, they just passed a certification test that they might have failed numerous times beforehand. They might as well be borderline sabatoging the education of their students., but that would almost involve effort, and there is no effort put out there. Literally, your chances at college will be jeopardized here by their inability to do anything in a timely manner. And hey, who needs a decent education as long as the administration gets ID locks on their doors and nice golf carts, right?
