Pittsburg Senior High School Reviews
I loved Pittsburg High School! Our campus was huge and so big that we had to add on across the street for more classrooms!Our principle, Mr. Whitmire, was an excellent principle I hate to say only because it’s weird to like your principle, right? But he was very involved with the students and made the school fun. For example every Friday we would have music playing in the quad and games to play. On every national month, like black history or Spanish history, the clubs that are involved were allowed to have a whole assembly about their heritage and a whole month to go out in the quad and show the students what’s it about. Our football team is adored and every football game is so fired up that the stadium, which is brand new, gets filled up immediately!That is one of the main things I will miss about Pitt. Also the counselors are very understanding and helpful. I will always miss how pitt challenged me and pushed me to do good
My experience at Pittsburg High School was a very challenging and fulfilling experience. The classes that I took challenged me and pushed me to uncover my full potential and I learned numerous things that helped shape me not just academically, but character-wise as well. This school prepares its students for the real-world and for college and beyond! One thing I wish the school improved on was more availability of technology to students.
I like how culturally diverse and accepting our school is, which has appears to progress in this direction every year. However, the school class sizes are very large and are expected to grow even more (which is awful given that some classes don't even have enough chairs for students). As a result, many teachers are now protesting, where they choose not to work before 7:45 AM and after 3:30 PM. Now students are not able to receive extra help before and after school and aren't likely to receive help during class due to the teachers needing to focus on such large classes.
