Pittston Area Senior High School Reviews
I really liked some of my teachers and felt that I was really learning and understanding the material through their teachings. What is would like to see change is the school to offer more opportunities to students in preparation for college such as better curriculum for certain courses, opportunities to visit colleges, and resources to meet with people from their intended career field.
For the most part, my main classes are well organized and taught. Outside of that, there are a few glaring problems with how information is spread. I often receive reminders for events or clubs that I do not participate in, or for classes I am not in/have already take (i.e. Bio and Algebra Keystones when I took them over the previous two years). On top of that, I rarely receive reminders for far more important things, such as when registration for important organizations like the NHS are due by.
Pittston Area is lacking in diversity, cleanliness, and empathy. However, the teacher genuinely care about their students and try their hardest. The students are actually quite respectful to each other, but drugs are definitely a problem.
