I received an excellent education from Pitman High School. I give Pitman High School 5 stars for college readiness because academics were great and they had activities such as SAT prep classes during the night. This high school definitely prepared me for college and made me feel more confident. There was also a lot of clubs and activities for it being such a small school. The staff and administration were very supportive, helpful, and academic. Many teachers made themselves available during their free periods or after school to offer addition help to students who may have been struggling. Many sports teams such as field hockey and baseball have won awards. The food was always decent. I appreciated how they offered fresh salads or wraps for the students. However, their main course and canned fruit were not always the healthiest or the best tasting.

I liked how Pitman High School was a place where every student had the opportunity to reveal their character and personal interests to people on a regular basis, without being hidden among the crowd. Some changes I would make to the school's environment would be to influence more of school spirit, have all teachers on the same level of instruction and aid, and have more of an availability with classes offered at the school. My experience overall was good, but could have been better, which is why going forward I look to bring lots of change and school spirit wherever I may go.
Pitman is a small town and it's school district is small as well. The best thing about that is teachers have the time to give each student the attention they need and bonds can be formed between students and mentors. With the district being small, that means everyone knows everyone and although it may seem intrusive, it helps push each person due to a sense of accountability. The only thing that Pitman could do better is preparing each student for graudation and college preparation. I enjoyed my time at Pitman High, but I do not feel I was given 100% attention for college prep.
