From excellent teachers, supportive counseling services and a high standard of academic expectation Pittsford Mendon High School provided me with the optimum of readiness for my college education. There are so many advanced placement courses available and the faculty does an excellent job at preparing us for placement exams necessary for college enrollment. I feel I was better prepared than the average student at Rochester Institute of Technology for the rigor of college expectations and I have Pittsford Mendon High School to thank for that.

Pittsford-Mendon High School is a very good school with a good balance of academics, clubs, and sports. Many of the teachers do a decent job, and some that really stand out and go beyond expectations because they are seriously invested in their work. One area I would like to see improvement is discussion-based learning in the classroom. Many students, including myself, get trapped in the "memorize and forget" style of "learning", which is challenging to fix later on. I believe getting students more experience verbalizing their opinions this early on in their studies would be truly beneficial to all involved.
Pittsford Mendon Highschool is all about the community. Set in an upper middle class suburb in upstate new york, everybody was clean cut from good families that placed an emphasis on education and in turn our school had a culture that valued good academic work, and had an expectation that each student will attend college.
