This school is OK but I've seen better. I am currently attending this school and I am appalled by everything that happens there. Some of the teachers cuss in front of the students. While some teachers are kind others are ruthless. This will be my second year there and for once I'm not looking forward to school. I would let my parents home school me but I have friends at PCMS.

My child attended elementary school in this county, had all A's and loved school. His first year at this school has been a nightmare. Coaches cuss at the students during football practice. If your child is caught talking during class and they are on the football time they have to run the whole practice. Popular students get away with picking on the less fortunate students, because they sponser the band or are getting kick backs from the rental company that supplies band instruments. The principal is all about high test scores and could care less about the students that are struggling. If you can afford to stay home or private school your kids in Middle school I would strongly recommend it.

This school is the reason i homeschool my son. He played football for there team and was hurt while playing. When he had trouble keeping up because of his drs. apts. i requested a teacher stay after with him and help him learn what he had missed. Instead the principal thought it would be better to throw him in ISS and throw his work at him in there alone. Therefore he was not going to learn it. Teachers would not allow him to bring the wheel chair into the classroom, knowing he could NOT walk, they were forcing him to do so, which increased his injury. Overall this school and the people in it do not care about your child unless they are above average learners, anyone else they try to get out by suspending, or any way necessary to make sure they recieve all their top awards. My son has 5 friends that ended up being homeschooled because of this school and they did not return to public school till there were in high school. I DO NOT recommend this school to anyone!

This school is average. The curriculum is okay, some of the teachers are quite good, and the students are generally fairly nice. though it isn't anything amazing at all. there are a few fights every couple of months and testing is such a big deal that you get frustrated easily. though i would recommend the school if you live in the area.

Pickens Middle School is a learning environment that is goal oriented. Each student is pushed to achieve their full learning potential, and rewarded when they do. The principal, Dr. LeMiux, encourages students to focus on reading above all other skills. He is a firm believer in the fact that students that are great readers will achieve more in life. An A.R. reading program that encourages students to reach individual reading goals institutes this principle. Students read from a number of pre-selected books and then take a short test about the information. The goal is to get each and every student to read one million words during the school year. Students that do so receive awards. This school also actively rewards students for good attendance, good grades, good behavior, and more. Teachers are well educated and interested in helping each and every student achieve their learning goals. The school offers an outstanding music program that has been recognized by the state as well as nationally. The music director Mrs. Land has been named among the top 50 directors in the country. To top it all off, the school is beautiful, with a practical layout and well maintained in every aspect. The lunch that is served each day is said to be the best of all county schools. As a parent and substitute teacher at this school, I highly recommend this school to other parents that wish their child to receive a top of the line education.
