Pinecrest Preparatory Academy Charter High School Reviews

52 reviews

I like how small the school is in comparison to other schools in the area. The school is very focused on preparing students for college, so they provide many programs to gain college credits. You start taking the PSAT in 8th grade, if you attend the school through middle school, so I fell like our students are ready to take the actual SAT. My few critiques of the school are that I wish it had more clubs, the few clubs the do provide, along with honor society’s, don’t cater to everyone’s interest. I also wish they’d provide more language classes other than French and Spanish, like some other schools in the area do. One last critique is that I feel like sometimes the school heavily enforces some unnecessary rules and ignore some of the more important ones. I’ve attend the school since the 6th grade, currently a sophomore, and have had a well enough experience. Most of the students are welcoming and there is little to no bullying.

In 2016, I enrolled in Pinecrest Preparatory Academy Charter High School as a Sophomore. I can assure with much confidence that there was a significant improvement from my last school. The learning environment made my interest in academics reach an untameable desire which has helped surpass new boundaries that once were thought unreacheable or distant. One factor that contributed to this "revival" was the small and safe environment that the teachers, the staff, and the administration provides. This school has done an amazing job in shaping me as a responsable individual and a great scholar.
Going on my seventh year of attendance to this school, I’ve seen their policies come and go as well as grow. Academically they’re beginning to grow. But, my class and classes before have been test subjects. What I’ve learned about the school in a nutshell, is to grow good enough relationships with teachers and administration and you will glide through your time at the school. You could be lucky enough to become a teacher or administrations pet and that opens a whole new world of opportunities to slack off and become a favorite. Otherwise, if you are not a favorite and speak your mind you will be shut out and treated differently. They advocate for students to speak their mind and put on a show for others visiting the school to make it seem like the perfect institution, but in reality it is one that administration is just as corrupt as politicians and it’s teachers have no voice or options, just as the students do. I mean what I say to help change the corruption.
