Piqua High School Reviews

I loved how dedicated and friendly most of my teachers were. I enjoyed classes where we strayed from the lesson plan occasionally to have deep, philosophical conversations. They gave their best effort trying to help me, never shaming me for not grasping a lesson. Even my AP teachers, who pushed me the hardest, never gave me than I could take. Under their care, I flourished, actually delighting in the complex concepts and assignments they gave me. I felt like my teachers were people, not just authority figures. However, that glowing review doesn't apply to all. I've had a few teachers who couldn't care less about their students, and it made learning difficult. I even had one who refused to put forth more than the bare minimum and never helped us, even when asked. I hope that Piqua High School will take it upon itself to toss out these teachers. I learned nothing from them except how to look up answers for homework that I didn't understand and couldn't get help with.

My experience throughout high school at Piqua High School was as I expected to be, a lot of drama and cliques being made. The down side to Piqua High School is that it did not teach me college readiness and therefore I wasn't prepared when it came time to go away to college. The change I would like to see being made is preparing current high school students for college with certain materials they may need or may need to understand for the college level. I feel as if the staff would take their time in showing interest, the students will too.
I loved how caring the teachers were. I also saw it as a place with many opportunities and clubs to help one become a leader. I disliked how many AP classes one could take because I like challenging myself and so I took a ridiculous amount of them. I think there should be fewer AP classes. But I completely loved my friends, and I wish I had more time for "fun" things but I know I would not have changed a thing. I honestly know that I will be able to make a positive impact on the world thanks to PHS. It honestly was whatever you chose to make out of it. So try to have fun and do as much as you can.
