Pittsburg High School is a great place to be. I've appreciated the welcome I received, and I couldn't have asked for a better music program. The marching, concert, and jazz bands are all incredible teams to be a part of, and the director is completely personable and illustrious. Musical arts are important and extremely well-managed at PHS. Overall, one of the only places where I would like to see change is the technology department. Special classes and organizations are supplied with ample and high-rated technology, but that leaves the general student body wanting. There should be upgrades made to the every-day laptops provided for students.

Pittsburg High School is a 5A school. It is pretty average for where it is located. If you compared the school to others of its size, it would pale in comparison. The school is moving in a great direction with the new administration and is focusing more on how to best serve their students!
I enjoyed Pittsburg Highschool! The teachers and staff are amazing and go above and beyond for their students. Pittsburg highschool has many extra curricular activities. Such as sports, clubs, and much more. They offer many college credit classes as well. Pittsburg Highschool has so much to offer for students. Their honors classes are very good as well! When graduating from Pittsburg, they're are many scholarship opportunities. Also the counselors do there best at getting their junior and senior ready for they future as college students.
