I am a sophomore at Piner High School. My experience as a student at Piner High has been great! The students there are extremely kind and there isn't any discrimination over color, race, ethnicity, etc. The teachers are very helpful and always try to help you with your needs. The library has hours open after school and tutors are there to help you with you homework. Mr. Sullivan the college and career counselor is very helpful and understanding. Piner High has a variety of clubs. If you don't find a club that you want to join, you can make you own! The Early College Magnet Program is very popular at Piner and has helped students get college credit while still attending High School. Overall, this year there has rarely been fights. We are mostly calm students. It all depends who your friends are. Our own police officer is there to prevent things from occurring. The supervisors are always getting along with all the students.

Piner High School has given me a chance to learn what classes I enjoyed taking and what I should invest my time into when college rolls around. My favorite class my senior year is culinary with its great academic material and the hands on learning you achieve in class. The teachers are wonderful influences and they guide you every step of the way! I also love the ECM program that pays for your SRJC textbooks and gives you opportunities to start taking JC required classes and gerneral education classes as a sophomore in high school! I enjoyed all my time at this school and I’m glad I can say that I graduated from Piner High School!
What I enjoyed about Piner is the atmosphere of the people around me, diversity and creativity is what makes Piner a good school. Growing up I heard rumors that Piner is a bad school that only bad kids go there but it is completely false. We have one of the best teachers that support and want us to succeed in our futures. Not to mention we also have the only planetarium in a high school in California. In California! If that's not amazing I don't know what is. My view of Piner Changed after starting high school here. I learned that a school isn't bad but sometimes it is the students themselves that make it seem it is bad. I have had no issue with no teacher but support and courage to pursue a career that I will love! I love and will always love Piner High School
