I believe Pineville high school is a rather nice place to be. Least it's better than most places. The faculty have a bad problem of not being patient with students and blaming them for actions they never performed. The teachers tend to be on the good side though, most are very understanding and are strict when need be, like a good teacher should be. Some though I would say are not as they should be. They swamp students with works and give them impossible times to complete these assignments. Overall I can say it's a good school, but it could for sure be better! Personally being on the baseball team and in the choir I can say that these are two amazing programs to be in. They both have amazing coaches and instructors.

My overall experience with Pineville High School was positive, however there are some things I would like to see changed in future years. I am a STEM student, in particular an aspiring computer engineer. At PHS, there are NO
fully computer science oriented classes, making it nearly impossible to study programming before college. College level computer science is extremely difficult without any prior experience with coding and/or hardware tinkering. Therefore, this is one thing that I would love to see changed. I genuinely think that it would improve the schools rating a ton and they would see a lot of growth in both numbers of STEM students and appreciation from said students.
I absolutely love Pineville High school, students are treated fairly and equally , and the educational opportunities there are plentiful. Many extracurricular activities are offered as well, giving students a break from school life, and a chance to be involved in a healthy, fun, school activity. Pineville High School prepares all students from sophomore year for college. ACT tests are given and preparation is given for all students. Safety drills are done monthly to ensure students knowledge of what to do during a emergency. School Culture is great as well, the diversity of students is unseen as everyone in the school are treated as equals. The musical classes and art classes are all highly appreciated by higher administration in the school, so are the sports teams.
