Pittsfield High School Reviews
Pittsfield High School is one of the most diverse high schools in Berkshire County. I love the fact that it offers a wide variety of classes, from intensive to advanced placement, meeting your personal needs and interests. The students get along incredibly well and there is a very diverse ratio of students. The students make great connections with their teachers and feel comfortable reaching out to them for help or anything they need to get off their minds. Also, Pittsfield High has the best school spirit, students attend every sporting event from the fall to the spring, encouraging and cheering on their fellow classmates. The students who attend Pittsfield High and the teachers there love PHS with their whole heart and forever bleed purple.
In the wonderful school of Pittsfield High School we have several athletic and academic teams, and are a division I school in many spring sports. Along with these several sports we have the support of many people in our school with the bleachers filled in our home and even some away games. Although our hearts are large for our school the structural integrity of our school is somewhat outdated. This however pales in comparison to the academic opportunities with our numerous advanced placement classes with teachers who encouraging and knowledgeable of their subjects. Of course I must acknowledge the wonderful support staff of counselors who make the path to college with little stress as possible.
I had a terrific experience at PHS! Every teacher I had was personable, caring, and eager to do all they could to help me further my education! The wide selection of classes and AP classes helped me prepare for college as well as cultivate my interests. I also had very memorable experiences on the varsity and junior varsity softball team as well as a great time participating for the many clubs the school has to offer.
