My review will be based from my daughter who graduated in 2013. It's long overdue but I would like to commend the school's counselors. Most especially to Ms Janet Turner who had been patient with my daughter throughout the college process. My eldest Is now doing her best at one of the best public universities In the U.S.A. At present, Ms Turner is still patiently working on with my youngest daughter's concerns. As parents, we truly appreciate the effort and guidance. Looking forward to another fruitful student-teacher-counselor relationships. More power to the administration.
My daughter been at PFHS for four years and now a senior. I give ms Jane field a 10 on turning pine forest high around. I have nothing but good things to say about th school. If i had another child I would send them to PFSH also. If you are a parent you have to do your part with the teacher. thing starts at home first because I am a old school parent. stop doing things in front of your kids and be a parent. If you don't have anything to say good don't say anything at all especially if you are not doing your part
This is my third year at Pine Forest High School and so far I am pleased with my experience. There are many great extra curricular activities such as SGA, DECA, Trojan Terror and Trojan Mentors. They offer a good variety of AP classes and have teachers who truly want to see kids enjoy class and grow. Of course there are some areas that could use some improving, but overall I would say that PFHS has given me the knowledge to succeed in my later years.
This school has a very on the ball Principal "Jane Fields", she has a brilliant vision on how to fix whats not working for the school and she enhances was is working for the school she has a zero tolerance of foolishness but deals with it head on if and when it arises she has a understanding staff that knows when they get out of line she will be very professional in her discipline. The school has a awesome come up with their academics Biology,Math, English teams meet with her to find better challenges on how the students can just continously maintain excellence you may can't get the all but the press hard for excellence PFHS you have my 5 stars.
North Carolina has some of the best universities in the Nation; however, generally speaking their k-12 schools are in need of an education revolution. I went to PFHS and honestly, it is an awful school. I never knew how awful it was until I went to a University in NC and realized how teachers are supposed to teach, and how much fun learning can be. I now have an extreme passion for learning anything and everything. When I think back to my time at PFHS I am overcome with sadness. School should be a place of inspiration, not a place where you are allowed to jump out of your classroom window without the teacher noticing or caring. Many of my friends from high school are doing wonderful things with their life, but that is due more from inspiration in college than from PFHS. In short, PFHS does more to hurt innovation within NC and USA than inspire innovation. So please think twice before enrolling your child in PFHS or if your child is a student there, take action.
We have two children at PFHS. 11th and 9th grade. We have seen some great things happening at this school. The band program is top notch and the staff seems to care about the well being of the children.
The teachers and administrators really care about the students at this school. There is a lot of parent involvement which makes the school really feel like a family. Despite budget cuts, the staff has gone out of their way to ensure the children have access to enriching experiences and extracurricular activities.
