I came from another district that i loved and this does not compare. I do have A's and B's but did not need to take a full load of classes. So i take three classes a day and then go to work. The Band is below par, you don't get all the information you need upfront, a lot of the teachers are split between us and the middle school. Councelors are pretty good. Football is great, a winning team. But they also have toshare with the middle school. Glad to be graduating this year. Otherwise it'dbe pretty boring.
Pinson Valley has changed my life in so many ways. I've had some of the best and hardest times, but wouldn't change any of those moments because they have shaped me into the woman I am today. Pinson Valley has so many academic opportunities to really try and discover what I want to pursue in college. I'm so thankful for all the staff that have put in the continuous hours and hard work to help me get to where I am today. Pinson Valley has been and always will be my home.
