All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

I love this school, my daughter started here as a sophomore and now is at the end of her Jr year. The interns are great for the kids to try different types if careers and find what they like. My daughter is able to go to big picture m-w-f, and then on Tuesday and Thursday she is staying all day at the PSSC down the street to do criminal justice. She loves it and has a very positive outlook for her future. At big picture the don't do report card like the traditional high school, instead they have exhibitions, where the kids present their work to a panel and they are scored based on what they present. Great program. Thank you Big Picture Staff, you guys ROCK!!

This school prepares students for college in a way that no traditional high school education could. If I could reccomend this small school for everyone, I would.

Big Picture High is a school where students can get a head start in life; not only will they get the fundamentals of a profound education, they can explore there passions out in the real world. For example, students are given the privilege to go out on informational interviews and shadow work days two out of the five days in the school week. Ultimately, trying to get an internship at an environment that they one day can work at. With the support and help of the advisors and the inter-coordinator, Dan Posel, all that is becoming possible.
