I love Pillsbury So much i was a a student their until i graduated .I bet It's the most amazing school in the whole world. Now i'm a at a new school and i don't enjoy it as much as Pillsbury.The teachers their are amazing and unforgettable.I would suggest going to Pillsbury you or your child wont forget it.


Posted October 15, 2005

It is important for the principal to provide extracurricular activities for the students. The principal needs to kick off her heels and be a part of the school. I want the principal to greet me as I enter the building. As I spoke to a teacher she was stressed out totally. A principal has to diffuse that feeling. If there is no recess then what will you do to make my child enjoy everything about Pillsbury MST. Is Pillsbury a Magnet School. What makes it a Magnet School? It is the only Math/Science/ Technology School . When I enter some teachers look so tense.
