Pierce City High has come a long ways since I have gone there. I hope it contenues to improve.


Posted May 24, 2006

I went to PC schools most of my life from kK12th grade. I have got to say that I enjoyed my time there. The teachers were for the most part excellent. A few bad apples but you get that everywhere I suppose. My own kids have gone there as well, but we no longer live in that district. One things is for sure. We've got that great big ole greeeeeeeen pride!!!!

Great school only problem there are few extracurricular activities for people who are not athletic; however the english program is excellent! The math department is very poor, but the school is working on the math and more activities. They do what they can.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Missouri used the End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments to test high school students in Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, English I, English II, American History, Government, and Biology. The EOC Assessments are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Missouri for each subject. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
