Pinecrest High School Reviews
Attending Pinecrest was surely an experience that my classmates and I will remember. Yes, things could have been better in a hundred ways, but I wouldn't trade it for the world. All of my teachers made an effort to be a part of their students' lives, they actually cared. Not only that, but they continuously challenged us. They would teacher more than the curriculum asked for so we were way above prepared for any test. The student body was pretty amazing as well. There are no cliques, no stereotypes. This was a friendly environment that encourages participation everywhere. I know countless people who were in sports, music, and multiple clubs. The academic rigor is stimulating enough, but it also allows for extracurriculars. The school spirit was spectacular ad well! Games for sports at home and away always had the bleachers full of supporting students and parents. I thoroughly enjoyed being taught here, especially since everyone is crazy friendly.
Pinecrest High School offers a variety of classes for all academic levels. They offer classes for students who plan on attending a 4 year university and there are technical classes for students that plan on getting out of high school and entering the workforce. Pinecrest High School offers a long list of clubs and activities for students to join. There are many sports teams for both boys and girls. The majority of the teachers at Pinecrest really care about their students and take pride in helping them with their future plans. Many parents get involved at Pinecrest by volunteering through the PTA, band, ROTC and the PAC - Pinecrest Athletic Club.
Pinecrest high school gives its students every opportunity to succeed, with teachers who do care about their students. However the administration which runs the school is flawed. They have been unable to keep a principle for the school for more then two years. Other issues within Pinecrest stem from its community more then the school itself. Pinecrest has a large amount of students who are financially fortunate as well as those who like me are less stable in that area. Due to this fact I felt in my time at Pinecrest that the students who had a higher financial status were made the focus of the school leaving those who were not as fortunate on their own.
