Pitman High School Reviews
I've been to four different high schools in my career, and this one fell on the more negative end of the scale. Their academics were really poor, like in computers and mathematics. Majority of the kids weren't able to navigate various Microsoft programs, which my public schools one town over taught back in middle school. Their teachers seemed to just be presenting enough busy work to fill in the year, as I only walked away with one meaningful assignment out of the eight months I attended. No one who was in the building at any given time seemed to actually enjoy being there.
My time at Pitman High School as a student has been very enjoyable and a very interesting learning experience. I have learned many things and met many of my closest friends through school activities. The teachers have pushed me to excel in my art abilities which I am going for as a major and they help ignite a passion for the arts. The music program is very good and provides many students with a creative outlet. The classes are very educational provide different learning techniques for both visual and mental learners. I have been happy with my time at Pitman High School and the Pitman School District as a whole with the exception of having the administration not listen to the concerns of the students as much they could.
I loved this school! I learned so much and all of the teachers are amazing. I went there all of my life and my parents never regretted it! There are so Manu supportive people the work there, including all of the faculty. I have made so many friends who have been there my whole entire life! I love it !
Nobody cares about learning. Cheating is rampant. Literally everybody is white, most people will never leave this town. You can do so much better.
My overall experience at Pitman High was awesome and I made a lot of life long friends along the way. I would like to see the schools classrooms and buildings be improved as they are very old and need work done.
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.
I liked the close knit family experience of the school, everybody knows you and you know everybody. You will always know someone as you walk down the hall way. The teachers know you by name and sometimes even know your handwriting. The teachers get involved in your life and are concerned about your well being. There is a higher chance of playing varsity on a high school sport and you can become friends with everybody.
Pitman is a great school for such a small town. The class sizes are really tiny, but you end up getting to know everyone really well. The sports are really fun, and you end up making friends from all four grades because of that and that you can end up with different grade levels in your classes too.
I love the caring and safe feeling at Pitman High School. The teachers care about their students and share amazing opportunities. The new Bring Your Own Device enhancement at Pitman has brought huge increases in learning with technology, but a slight increase is still needed.
There are some really good teachers and some not so good.
If I could turn back the hands of time I would have sent my child to a private school like I did her sister. The coach and field hockey team rocks, but she struggled in school.
There are some good teachers and some who are not very good. I found that the automated grading system removed some of the communication between parents and teachers and students. It doesn't replace the occasional email, note, or phone call that may sometimes be needed when a student is struggling. A parents shouldn't wait to see a weekly or daily email of grades to find several homework assignments missing. Additionally, there is no accountability for homework which is so important. A 0 and a poor grade does not teach the student responsibility or the subject matter. Keeping the student after school insisting to complete the assignment does enforce responsibility and subject matter. I'm very disappointed in the school system
I wish there were more clubs, there are things like key club but it would be better if there was more than just one page of clubs.
I came from a different school that was bigger with more opportunities, so it's hard to judge based on that.
A lot of students participate in athletics. Many big games have a large fan attendance. The town is very supportive of the athletics.
Good community, always feel safe.
