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.
The thing that I liked most about Piqua High School was the ability to take college credit plus classes as a high school student. This opportunity allowed me to save an entire year of college tuition because I was able to enter college with a whole year of schooling completed. The worst thing about Piqua High School was the lack of nationwide programs, like DECA, that were offered. I felt like there weren't enough programs to prepare me for college.
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.
