Putnam city is a school you can not describe in words. Over my four years of being in this school. It has shown me leadership, the diversity, how to get along in any sport your in. I've been involved since my Sophomore year. First sports, the Student Council and now leadership. All of my AP and Honors teachers taught me, college and career ready. I will never regret any football game, volleyball game, track meet and basketball game. When cheering on the sidelines just for the fun of it and to support your school. Every tear I've shed because of an APUSH test or Algebra test I thought i would fail. Though I did not fail. Every Senior is excited for our upcoming football game, because now we are the one who leads the cheers, has the senior nights. All I can say is, I wouldn't go to any other school if i could. Once a Pirate, always a Pirate.

As a person who transitioned from a small town to the city, I have to say that Putnam City Highschool is great! I am friends with all the staff members who work hard on a daily basis to encourage students to be the best. They offer Vo-Tech and they have teachers tutoring after and before school so that students can catch up. The school also has an amazing student council and leadership class that always makes the parties fun and bring the students together through difficult times.
I loved Putnam City because of the way the culture has manifested itself into every student, teacher, and staff member. The sports were always competitive, everything was lively, and it was always a great place to be!
