Pittsburg High School Reviews
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.
My overall experience with high school was pretty good. I graduated as 13th in my class, so academics were never really a problem for me. However, the environment wasn't always the most fun. School should be a place that kids want to go to, and where they want to learn, but instead it has just turned into how well can you take a test at the end of the year. The Ag program could use a lot of work as well. The teachers need to take more interest in their students. There were so many kids in my classes that had so much potential, but the teachers didn't always seem to care, so they didn't either. The faculty needs to really work on how they can better connect with their students. They need to learn about what really goes on in teenagers' lives, and use that to connect with them.
It's not that great, but there isn't all that much to complain about either. There are lots of teachers who care deeply about the success of the students, which is always great to see, but some seem like they just show up for a check. Additionally, there is a disconnect between the students and teachers when it comes to discipline sometimes. I have personally seen students with metal illnesses being punished and offered no sort of counseling towards correcting their behavior.
