I loved my time at PGASD! I was always one who enjoyed going to school, learning, and being with my friends! Something I think should be improved is communication among the faculty, as it seemed some teachers were out of the loop at times. I would also say that discipline needs to be a little more strict and stuck to. Sometimes with discipline, it’s just empty threats and the students know that. The sports games are always packed with students and the community because PGASD has such wonderful community support and involvement. The community is always supporting in sports, clubs, academics, etc. PGASD really prepared me to go into the world and to become a college student. I am so thankful for all of the knowledge both morally and academically that I was taught at PGASD. It truly is, and was the best home away from home a student could ask for All around, Pine Grove is an amazing school that any student would be lucky to go to, and any teacher would be lucky to have a job at!

Personally, I really like my high school. I liked how the teachers were engaging in their lectures and how they involved the students while giving lectures so it wasn't 40 minutes of the teacher talking. I liked how we felt like a community by doing school events and everyone coming out to support the school. One thing I wish would change would be the money situation. I think Pine Grove would be a lot better if they had more funds for necessary things that the school needs.
I'm glad to have gone to Pine Grove because the opportunities to learn and find what you like are plentiful. The science and technology departments had steadily improved and they are very well done programs, offering students quality resources and teachers.
