Pine-Richland did a great job preparing me for further education. Classes I took there were often more difficult than my entry college courses. Academically, it's absolutely top notch. Athletics, clubs, and band are popular and fun to be apart of, as a participant or fan (The Mob). The administration was good for the most part. Front office resources for college advising were outstanding. Almost all the teachers I had genuinely cared and would be willing to take time to help you if you asked for it. The school's main downside is a lack of diversity, both racially and economically. However, most students were down to earth. There is a definite competitive culture at this school, and that can be both a good and bad thing. All in all, while it wasn't perfect, I'm glad I went to PR.

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.
Majority of the staff are friendly and helpful, however the students are disrespectful, rude, and unkind. Bullying is a HUGE problem at this school. The academics are typically challenging and well taught, but the amount of bullying is awful.
