Pittsfield has been an amazing school for me! I am currently one of the only African American students in my entire 9-12 and I am the only African American in my grade and I have been met by nothing but open arms by my teachers, administrators, and my fellow students. This school has taught me so much more than just some of the basics we need for life but it's helped me learn more about myself and what I truly want to do in life instead of just settling for easy things. Pittsfield has been my dream of a high school experience and I truly have loved it!

Growing up, I had always been ready to be in high school and be a true “saukee”. Now looking back one my previous 3 years, I feel as if the time has went way too fast. Most experiences have been positive. A large part of being in Pittsfield high school was finding a place to fit in and belong. I am surrounded by hundreds of peers who are going thorough and searching for the same things I am. Our school is large enough to accommodate diverse interests and make what I’m looking for available. Yet it is small enough to not feel overwhelmed or underapreciated. Because of the small town feel, some staff are not as welcoming as others because of a certain last name or predetermined loyalties to higher staff members. This has negatively effected the sports I have played and an organization I am in. However the small town feeling can also work in the students favor. If a teacher knows your family this can make your education more personal than average and help form bonds with staff.
I loved moving here! I moved here from a very non accepting school and growing up African American and gay in mid western Illinois, it's hard to find a school that is accepting. Thankfully after many many moves I ended up here in Pittsfield High School and I am very proud to be a Saukee.
