Alum: My experience with Pittsburg Independent School District over the years of attending were excellent. I had wonderful teachers that pushed me to reach for the stars. I think that due to it being a small area that it really brings you close to your teachers, and fellow peers which makes you feel connected, as well as accepted. I loved that the most about the schooling in Pittsburg.
If I had to change anything it would just be dress code only because as a college student I see first hand that what the school thinks is a distraction, isn't. Teens have a hard time finding clothes in stores that are acceptable for school based off of dress code rules. I believe that as long as a student is not showing cleavage, or inappropriate parts students can learn. Cell phones are the biggest distractions not clothing, which should be allows at lunch or through passing periods just not class. Students need a break from all the work to unwind.

Parent: As parents, we are amazed by this school and their teachers. We were somewhat skeptical at the beginning, but after seeing the positive transition with our child and experiencing how the school teaches, we are very happy with our decision. Our son has a higher reading level than his peers. To ensure that he continues to thrive, the teachers work with him at his level and help him advance further than where he was at. With math, the school teaches him how to understand a problem from different approaches, not limited to the traditional way of repetition. They do a lot of collaboration in class. Our child is very shy, but he has connected with several good friends in no time. The school has many after-school activities that we sign him up for each day. His PE class also includes swimming lessons in the school building which is a plus as well. Overall, we would highly recommend this school!
