I grew up in Piper since kindergarten. I have noticed that when I have gone to other schools for events, and talked to other students from different schools, that Piper is a really good school. We need more credits than most schools which is very nice in my opinion. We have very high standards and it pushes us to achieve more than we think.
Piper is a very small community, so words do get around. Just like any school there is drama. The drama at Piper isn't as bad as most of the schools I know. In the end we all come together and root for each other. I just really value the Piper community.

Okay. This school is great with education and learning if you really do want to learn but other than that, its kind of awful. So many of the kids are racist and, while admin does do SOMETHING about it, it's not the RIGHT something. Also, the principal always talks about how bullying is a serious issue, but I've never had an issue actually addressed by them. So much for "serious." The teachers are mostly great but some of them are actually TERRIFYING. You know who I'm talking about.
I have lived and gone to Piper my whole life. There were times when I was an underclassman that I did not like the school, because of the kids that went there, but that is a lot of what high schooler's experience. Overall, the teachers knew what they were doing, especially in my math classes. I had good relationships with my teachers, which helped me succeed. They also do a senior project that has you pick a career you would want to go into and do a project over it, which helps you decide if you really want to go into that field of work.
