I really enjoy the sense of community at Pine Island High School. Because of the small size, you get to know everyone around you. There are so many people you know will always be there. I also really appreciate the teaching staff. They care so much about my own, and every other student's educational needs. If there was one thing I would want to change about our school, it would be include more whole school events to take part of in the school day to have something to really look forward to.

I enjoyed the new renovations made in the classrooms, they could have come sooner though. The addition of the TV's make schooling easier than the smart boards that use to be in place, though they worked quite well in my opinion. Teachers are teaching at an acceptable level, though some classes could be pushed harder. Schedules are packed as no student is allowed to have two study halls unless approved by administration, which seems...subjective. Something I do not like about the current system is how much strain music classes take on the schedule, as they can potentially take up two periods of an eight period day, yet I see no solution to this problem currently.
The principal at Pine Island High School is both willing and confident when guiding his students towards graduation. He has organized many leadership days so his students can be leaders after they graduate from high school. Another great thing in which he has done is organize motivational and college speakers so we as students can get advice to better our outlook on finances and attitude in life. My principle is something else! Say that because you are able to go to him whenever needed and get advice about basically anything that is relevant and school appropriate. If a student at Pine Island High School dislikes him because of disciplinary problems that's there own fault because I have to. As a younger high school student, I got in trouble quite often and began to dislike him because of the punishments in which he gave me. In the long run, I began to understand that he punished me for the good of my well being. I wish every student at Pine Island High School would view him like I do.
