Pittsburg High School Reviews
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.
Pittsburg High School is currently under heavy construction, so the students and teachers are having to adjust accordingly to the blocked off classrooms and construction zones throughout the building. While this seems hectic, and it is, everyone knows that in the end the school will appreciate the improvements being made. Students, teachers, and staff have all stayed positive throughout this time of change, and although all 900 of us are cramped even more than before, we are staying positive.
I have nearly come to a close with my time at the Pittsburg Community Schools District, and mundane as it may have been, there is much to discuss about the schools themselves. The elementary schools are clean, well-renovated and frequently updated, and always carry a scent of Clorox wipes and Frosted Flakes cereal. The middle school had a change in acronyms in the past decade, from "PMS" to "PCMS" for obvious reasons. The high school is painted in "USD 250 Taupe", as per say my former Gifted teacher, and the commons are walled with horrid 1970's wood paneling. But, alas, many opportunities reside within the concrete and vinyl walls.
