VERY DISSAPOINTED with this school. Some of the teachers are so sports focused that the academic level of their teaching has fallen to the side lines. The numbers are reflected on a national school rating web site going from 58% to 38% being the most recent publishing of subject curriculums . And as far as the Principle leadership the rating here hits the nail on the head. The students here are of a very closed mind set and the level of bullying is out of control. The Principle follows through with nothing where disciplinary actions are concerned. And if the disciplinary action of the student involved threatens the sports agenda of winning all is swept under the rug and never herd of again. This school has a history of bullying issues and it explains why there is No diversity of any kind.

Having completed a bachelors and two masters degrees, I know that I received an excellent foundation at PGHS. Yes, the students drink a lot and sports is always a focus in a small town, but the teachers and the curriculum are wonderful. Having compared my education to other students from around the U.S. (including my current home in a suburb of Washington DC), I know that I had an outstanding education comparable to some of the most expensive private colleges on the east coast. If you can tolerate the small town environment, the school is definitely worth the move.

As a graduate from Pilot Grove high school, I can say that the effort and suuport the teachers give is phenomenal. I can't remeber a day after school or early morning when there wern't at least four teachers in before 7am. The empahsis on sports at the school is a bit much. I participated in theater, drama, and acadimic clubs and always felt as though, I was a second class citizen to the 'jocks'. Alcohol is another factor in a small town. theres nothing elese to do so why not drink? It takes a strong person to say no, and be themselves.

I can't tell you how wonderful the teachers are. They are a most impressive group of teachers that I am very grateful to have had the pleasure of meeting and being a student under. The students are able to get very close to the teachers, and when I graduated I didn't only see them as teachers, but as some of the closest friends I've ever had. As far as the student attitudes, they stink. It is in a very small town where the main focus is alcohol, not only among the students, but also the parents. There are a few students that are not sheep, and don't follow the leader as far as alcohol is concerned, but it is a very hard school to go to if your child doesn't have a strong standing of who he/she is and what they believe in.
