The staff at Pittsford Sutherland is generally outstanding. Teachers encourage growth and care about their students. There is an extremely wide range of courses available to students, and this allows them to explore many different subject matters and prepare for college and real life. I wish the school was more diverse and unified, but overall it is a great place to learn and grow.
I think the school prepared me well for college in terms of academic rigor, but students do not feel pressured to take classes which they may not feel ready for. There is a variety of classes and difficulty levels to suit students desiring advanced study as well as classes for students who may not wish to study a specific subject too rigorously. However, in every class the teachers placed a firm emphasis on honest and meaningful learning/studying of the subject being taught, and the overall behavior and attitude of students in the school reflects this. Students at this high school are typically active in the community in some way, and bring their passions to their peers in the forms of new student clubs, student events, and involvement in the art, music, and other departments of the school.
