Best Middle School in America!! I love being apart of such an awesome faculty! Their professionalism and creativity helps me grow to become a better teacher everyday. My principal has his heart in his work and it really shows on a daily basis.
There's a serious bullying issue. I have been extremely bullied and many of my friends have had unspeakable acts of bullying happen to them at Pizitz. I would not recommend this school.
Great school! Great teachers! I would recommend this school to anyone that wants better education
Either Pizitz has changed drastically over the years, or nobody has the guts to point out the schools' flaws. When I was at this school years ago, Pizitz was known as being one of the snobbiest and meanest schools. Sure, the education is great...but read along about what it was like during the 90's. Years ago, this place had a bullying problem that nobody did anything about. The principal mainly cared about the school's reputation and how "things looked" on the outside. He may present himself as well, but his behavior back then wasn't something an ethical adult would do. Everything negative was swept under the rug. If you stood up for yourself to object to the problems within the school, you weren't heard. Pizitz preaches conformity, while other schools in America encourage individuality. Since many of the students come from wealthy families, it's no surprise to encounter their rotten attitudes. Sure, there are SOME nice students....but the ones I went to school with were some of the most sadistic and ignorant kids I've met. Sadly, these kids are the ones who Mr.Miles would easily let off of the hook. Hey, maybe things have changed!
The principal is the best, the food is great, and the whole school just screams character, excellence, and family. This is a place that will leave a lasting impression on your student and will shape them for success... I know it did for me. Where the Pizitz Pirates lead, others follow!
I love Piziyz Middle School! Everybody cares for each other there, and also get a great education!
i love pizitz middle school! It is a great school and the students learn so much! Also the principal is very fun and involved in the students learning instead of just sitting at his desk like most principals would do!!!
Pizitz really is the 'best middle school in America'! Our principal Mr. Miles is really inspiring, and our teachers make sure that we get the best education available.
I love Pizitz. It has the best teachers imaginable. The students really try their hardest.
It is the best middle school in america! The principal tell the sudents every morning. The principal is a fun person to be around but is strict when having to punish a student for bad behaveior.
Pizitz is the best school around. There are so many activities for the kids to be involved in! The faculty and staff are all so caring and involved-you really can't ask for much more in a school. The PTA is one of the most active I've ever seen - 100% of the teachers join and parent volunteers can be found all over the school on any given day.
Pizitz is one of the few true quality middle schools around that offers high standards in academics, sports, music, etc. The faculty and staff demonstrate caring yet firm direction while giving the feeling of being one big family where everyone is welcome. I highly recommend Pizitz as well as the other Vestavia schools where there seems to be a common theme of pride caring and excellence.
this is the best schoool in america. for a specific reason, too. one year this school scored the best SAT scores in america.
