I recently conducted some observations for my education program at PET. It is a lily white environment with no African American staff, despite a large population of black students. The content taught in English and Social Studies was generally very Eurocentric. Many of the students I observed were ill-mannered. They used profanity, the n-word (black and white students), and were disrespectful to staff members. This is particularly true of the 9th and 10th grade classes I observed. Frankly, I can't believe that black parents are subjecting their students to this school that obviously cares nothing about diversity.

I have had two daughters graduated from this school. My first daughter was one of the first of the graduating class when the school first opended, my youngest just graduated in June 2012. Best decision i made taking them out of public school and attending P.E.T. The teachers really care about the students. The principal and teachers were always in involved in making sure the students had what they needed to succeed. Would definitely recommend this school!! Both my daughters graduated with honors and attended college.

Another Uniform complaint.. FOLLOW THE RULES! Oh god forbid no jewelry. Blue Pants and a Tan PET shirt that has to be tucked in? Their should be a law that stops students from looking respectable! Why buy colorful boxers when you cant wear your pants below your buttocks. crying shame I tell ya

First of all the uniform policy is too strict. You must wear blue pants, a tan pet school shirt(tucked in),black shoes, and no jewelry everyday. The principal has no input in the school. If something happens, you must talk to a man named Mr. Campbell. I don't even no what position he holds in the school. If taking a class about cable networking would not be of interest to you, i would not advise you to got to this school.
