    "Some parents try harder to get their child a good grade rather than the child working for their own grade"

    "Some of the teachers are awful and have little to no respect for their students but other teachers go beyond what is expected of them and have big influences on student's lives"

    "Overall, the quantity of high quality teachers here certainly outweighs the bad. Our science department is the only area in particular where I have had issues. It seems the teachers there have more interest in the high-performing students. But that being said, they are still consistent in their methods, and all knowledgeable. However, there are many great teachers here. I have had teachers here who have legitimately changed me for the better as a person, and a student. I had a German teacher my sophomore year, who not only got me to love German, but to appreciate different languages and cultures. In 8th grade, I had a D in math. But once I switched schools and came here, my grades improved drastically. The teachers really cared about my success and offered to meet with me whenever I could. In English, I started at standard English 9. The teachers I received got me interested in reading and writing as a whole. They incorporated modern day effects of historical literature, and got me excited to go to class every day. By the end of my junior year, I finished AP English with a high B. History I have nothing but great things to say about. I always loved History, but they took my passion to new heights. The teaching I received is what has influenced me to become a History teaching major. Every teacher has been a great story teller, and puts everything we learn into context. All very smart when it comes to their craft, and it showed in their compassion for the students. My APUSH teacher was especially exceptional. In addition to her always offering fun and intuitive learning experiences, she was a role model to us. After one of our classmates committed suicide, she dedicated the first half of the period to giving an emotionally driven speech to us about how their is always beauty in life. Everyone I know respected her, and hearing her words helped us cope. The teachers here truly care and are highly qualified and I have been grateful for what they have taught me."

    "As stated in my last statement, the teachers here are great, which helps for a positive experience. One of the things that makes Pine-Richland great is our community. We live in an area that, while certainly not without its fair share of problems, is a great place to raise a family. Everybody here really cares about each other. There's never a friend far away, or a harsh neighbor. While I certainly think some parents are way too involved, and put a large deal of pressure of their children, it is relatively small problem and typical of suburban lifestyle. PR is unique in the sense that we really do have people from all different backgrounds. There's rural areas, new suburban development, historical housing, high income, low income, it has it all. That's part of what makes it special. We all learn to appreciate different paths of life at a young age. My favorite experiences often stem from sports here- even ones I'm not involved in. I play lacrosse, which isn't exactly a huge crowd draw at any level. Yet when we went to playoffs, or played our rival, their would be students and parents alike packing in the stands cheering for us. It really brings a sense of community. I love participating in our "Mob" Student Section. We have "student section leaders" who bring music, chants, tailgates, and good times to all our football and basketball games. Our football team made it to the Pennsylvania AAAA state finals- the biggest high school game in the state. It takes place in Hershey, which is over a 3 hour drive for us here in Pittsburgh. And yet, the school arranged buses for students and parents alike and we piled thousands of people into the stands to cheer on our Rams in an exciting heartbreaker of a game. For better or worse, our community is one of pride and passion. I've lived in other areas, other states even, and nothing compares to here. I wouldn't trade it for the world. I might not get along with everyone, but we all manage to come together in the end."
