If your child is a self motivated , self teaching and strong student this school will be fine as would any school. If you have an average student with any possibility of needing any help what so ever......DON'T go to Pine Creek HS. It also has an atmosphere of a Juvenile Hall....No respect.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a parent
Unfortunately, because it has the atmosphere of a Juvenile Hall most teachers just want to teach their political views.


Amount of homework: Disagree


- a parent
They don't teach anything. How can they have homework? My kids watched more movies in class then I've watched in my lifetime.

The school was great until they decided to change everything. The whole religious debate was a bit over the top. The class sizes gradually grew and grew which limited the attention each student received. The period of time called seminar was removed from the schedule. It was essentially a homeroom where students could get help from teachers, but now it has been replaced with an additional class. It is like going to school in a prison. They force the students into the cafeteria and refuse to let them leave. They also do not allow visitors unless the visitor is a parent....also not cool. So they took away the opportunity of seminar and lunch time as being help times for students needing to make up assignments or receive extra help, does that really make sense?

Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a student
It al depends on the teacher. The ones that have been there for several years tend to be the best. The others are not worth the effort.


Amount of homework: Disagree


- a student
Way more homework than any college setting. College classes require a lot more studying while pine creek classes require a lot more unnecessary assignments.

Pine Creek is an amazing school. The tech program is great (we have programming through APCS, and then there are classes like app dev and game programming), the sports program is amazing, we are working toward everyone having an iPad, the music is great, and there are so many classes it can be hard to choose. Many of the negative reviews were clearly written by students from rival schools, because the majority of Pine Creek students are very kind and accepting. As a person who has always had trouble making friends, I had no trouble making lots of them here. The teachers are generally very helpful. There are tons of clubs for people to join, making it easy to stay involved in the community. Lunches are great because we order in from restaurants, so we have Chinese, Subway, Burgers, Italian, Pizza, Chick-fil-a, Salad, and more. Campus is open for juniors and seniors, so people can go get lunch somewhere else. There is a big student parking lot, so driving to school is easy. Overall an amazing school.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree

Some of my teachers have been great, some have been OK, but I have never had a bad teacher here.

Best school in the state. The teachers here care about the students. The staff wants to see them succeed, not only in the specific class, but in life in general. There will always be things to improve on at every school, but the base of Pine Creek is made of well meaning, inspiring staff members that push Pine Creek to its best every year.



- a parent
We have a gifted son who doesn't fit into the typical high school mold. He really likes Pine Creek High School because of the atmosphere (more college than high school) and mutual respect students give to one another. The variety of courses offered in the school's catalog, along with school sponsored sports teams and clubs, are also benefits to attending PCHS.
