Some teachers are great. A few of the teachers i have learned under gave me a new perspective on life, people, and all of the rest. On the adverse side of things, some teachers are not very good and do not take their job as seriously. Oftentimes under these teachers, students are subject to meaningless work and useless assignments that are either unrelated to the class or useless for education

It can be a very decent school, even wonderful at times, but some of the teachers there are rude and inconsiderate and no one can properly handle anything bad involving students. The kids are especially out of control, bullying is horribly out of hand.
Teachers at Pine Grove are always the best. The get along with the students and most are like friends to the students. The teachers are always there when we need them. the teachers are fun and do activities with the students, such as; pep rallies, homecoming events, and spirit week. The teachers are fun, but they are also respectable. They are good at their jobs and do well teaching students.
