I'm a senior at Pineville High School class of 2017! I'm beyond excited to go to college but without my school I wouldn't be ready. Pineville high school has a lot to offer, whether its the academics, clubs or sports that interest people, its worth while. Pineville is a A rated school, has caring faculty, staff and teachers. The food is better then the average public school, the lunchroom workers put their time and effort into the food they create. The coaches of sport teams are also teachers. The teachers want to the students to grow educationally but also as better people. The teaching has prepared me for college because the lessons challenge the students to think progressively with seminars, labs and other techniques. The spirt of the school involves the diversity of everyone that all come together for the sports, clubs, academics variety of other things.
I participated in theatre and choir all four years of high school. The theatre department is exceptional. The caliber of the shows produced are far superior to most high performing arts schools. Although this is the performing arts school for Rapides Parish, the theatre department is underappreciated and not funded by the school or district. It relies on its own earnings and parental support. My academic classes, including dual enrollment classes, were good and for the most part, the teachers were supportive of the students. Dress code, primarily inability to wear school hoodies, and student parking were concerns. Overall, Pineville High School is the best school in Rapides Parish.
