Pisgah High School offers a safe place to go to school with small class sizes, and a lot of one on one attention. There is little diversity and resources are limited. Often times resources are sent to larger counties within the state rather than the rural towns such as Canton, NC where Pisgah is located. This makes it difficult for students to learn. Students do not have textbooks at Pisgah High School as there is not enough money in the budget for them
Pisgah High school helped me grow as an individual and become the person that I am today. Through their overwhelmingly supportive teachers and administration I was able to be successful. The school does not encourage diversity, but that is not a product of the school or administration mostly of the community as a whole.
