Pine Creek High School 1

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.

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

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?

Mr. Keller and Mr. Waring were my favorite teachers. They did an excellent job and learned a lot.

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.

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

Students are highly disrespectful and so are the faculty members. The faculty members are mean and rude

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.

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