Pine-Richland High School Reviews
At Pine-Richland High School, I have found that my overall classes to be fair. There are a variety of teachers for almost every subject, although in my experience not all teachers in my opinion to be at the same level of teaching. The Social Studies, English, Physics and Engineering departments had some of the best teachers while the other departments ether had good teachers, mediocre teachers, or I did not have experience in the elective departments. I have been apart of two major clubs at our school, Students Against Destructive Decisions and Technology Student Association. I found these clubs to be both informative and helping in getting me closer to my fellow peers. In my High School Career, I have participated in both Track and Swimming/Diving. I have enjoyed both sports and would highly suggest them to anyone wanting to be a student athlete. Over my past four years at Pine Richland High School, I have found my overall experience to be pleasing.
There will always be that one teacher who doesn't adequately teach their classes, and, of course, this school has a few. However, the number of great teachers who engage with the students outnumbers those unsatisfactory teachers. Many of these teachers are actually concerned for the students' well being and for their education. Their grading stays consistent the majority of the time, and they provide the students with appropriate education. As for those teachers with inferior qualities, they can ruin a student's day very quickly. They don't seem to care about the well being of the students and they definitely do not care about their education either.
I can't really say many bad things about sports and clubs here. I've participated in a few of both, and if I had to pick one thing I'd say they're a little too competitive at times (sports). But overall all the athletic teams perform well and take pride in their sport. Teammates are very involved and compassionate for each other and it shows. The clubs here are phenomenal. Their is a club for almost everything here. We have dozens- community services, peer support, foreign language, academics, arts, music, etc. The teachers do a good job of getting involved and supporting students. Personally I have enjoyed playing lacrosse here, as well as my involvement in various clubs. Lacrosse especially has been fun and beneficial for me, and I've made some lifelong friends through playing.
