From the people to cafeteria food, Pittsburg High School is a pretty nice place to be at. This also includes the warm welcomings one gets by their fellow classmates each day. Truthfully, it may be said that our school is wonderful academically. However, one thing I would change is the restrooms at school because they are pretty nasty if you ask me. With that being said, another thing I would consider changing is the amount of resources that are offered to teachers for educational purposes. This includes new books, science tools, and sufficient amounts of pencils because students are always in need of them. Other than that I feel safe at school and on the academic side, I find it to be challenging just the way it should be.

I like how all the teachers and students are all wonderful and helpful. I just moved to Pittsburg and I’ve never went to a school with such an amazing community. The teachers are wonderful and they love to help students when they’re having problems. What I would like to see change is maybe the building, the school buildings are big but we have to many students for the school it’s self.
I think Pittsburg high school has a very good education system. The teachers teach their curriculum very well, and I feel that I am constantly learning new things. They expect everyone to follow the rules, and there are not any acceptions when you do not. Everyone is treated equally, and we are treated with great respect.
