Pittsford-Mendon High School Reviews
Pittsford Mendon High School is a unique educational and social institution. What makes Mendon awesome is that we are Viking STRONG. Our motto represents our values. The “S” stands for spirited. Whether it be sporting events, pep rallies or spirit days, we take pride seriously. Everyone does their best to get involved! The “T” means together. We work together to be accepting. We also collaborate on school and extracurricular activities. “R” means respect. We believe that everyone deserves respect because we are all humans. “O” means original. Everyone is encouraged to come up with ideas and try new approaches, but most importantly be themselves! Along with that the “N” stands for nurturing. We nurture classmates and support each other to ensure positive learning experiences. Lastly, “G” means genuine. At Mendon we put our hearts into everything. We persevere to have a genuine attitude. Mendon students are STRONG, and I believe it is a wonderful school.
I’d say overall it’s a great school in terms of academics, however, there are some grievances which I and many others feel need to be addressed. Mendon needs to have a more stable and efficient teacher-hiring program, because the amount of times teachers have needed a substitute and there’s next to no one to fill in, is too many times to count, putting unnecessary stress on the teachers AND the students. In addition, another main problem many feel should be addressed is how there isn’t a non-binary bathroom in the school, which hurts the students of the LGBTQ community incredibly, having to go into the bathroom of the sex they were given at birth, instead of who they truly are. Mentally, this can be debilitating due to the already prejudice society we live in, so introducing a gender-neutral bathroom would allow the many students who need it to feel like they’re actually cared about, and not that they’re worth less than a regular person.
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.
