Pine-Richland High School has been a very good high school experience. I am currently a junior and am in the very advanced course line. Most of the teachers I've had enjoyed teaching their subject and were very good at it. The guidance office is also good at getting back to you, whether it be about your schedule, mental health, or questions/concerns. However, there are a good bit of teachers who don't take their classes seriously - or, they don't teach. Some make you learn entire units yourself. Anyway, other than those teachers, the rest are phenomenal! I've made many good relationships, and appreciate each class.
At Pine-Richland, I had an amazing high school experience. I had great friends that I have remained close with even being out of high school. The atmosphere when I would walk through the halls was bright and full of laughter. The teachers were so caring and helpful! I feel that they prepared their students very well for college. In my college labs, people from other schools did not know how to do simple procedures that I had already been doing for years. Even my English classes prepared me for assignments that I would be doing in college like extensive annotations and multiple argumentative essays. There were many diverse clubs available to all students! It was so easy for anyone to find a group that they felt included in. Our music program was just as big as our sports program too! Students always supported others in these programs and had intense school spirit. Overall, my time at Pine-Richland High School was full of belly laughs, good grades, and amazing memories.
Although I know the education I'm getting is good, I really dislike the environment here. All the school cares about is sports and academics, and if you're not strong in either of those areas, the teachers make you feel as though you will not get anywhere in life. The art department has some amazing teachers, but the department itself seems to get neglected by the administration. There is almost no diversity; almost everyone is white, Christian, and conservative. The way they've handled covid is okay, but most students don't care about it and still take their masks off at school and party during the weekends. There have been multiple occasions where I have felt extremely unsafe (multiple bomb threats, a bullet found on the cafeteria floor) and it seems as though the school does not make them seem like a big deal. Overall, the education I'm getting is great but the morale is bad if you don't fit into the stereotypes here.
