    "The school goes through a new superintendent every 3 years. The Math and language teachers are awful. Bullying gets very overlooked, even though they tout how seriously they take it and that there is a no tolerance policy not true. Popular kids run this school. If your child isn't popular, they won't make it. There are also a lot of "cutters". The teachers are currently on strike .graduation rate has declined .I wouldn't send my kids there."

    "I am a graduate from Pine-Richland. This school cares nothing for the needs of the students, only about making money and looking good statistically. They do have a bullying problem and suicide rates are high. In my 4 years of high school there, we had 3 suicides and even more attempts. They recently set up an anti-bullying program but it is run very poorly and many of the teachers are actually causes of bullying rather than students. There is little tolerance for diversity among the students. The school only cares for athletics, leaving other departments with little financial support."

    "The PR school district allows a culture of bullying to go unaddressed. The suicide rate seems very high at PRHS (3 in 3 yrs plus attempts) which is alarming. My child was brutally bullied since 4th grade & guidance counselors routinely dropped the ball on this issue. Consequences for bullying are deferred until high school, by that time the damage to the bullied child has been done; it has changed who they are. The school is ruled by the "popular" kids & those who do not meet up to the standards of that group are taunted & excluded; there is little tolerance for diversity. PRHS teachers & administration make a serious mistake in allowing it to continue by pretending that it doesn't exist. I'm pleased to have removed my child from PRHS, if you must live in the area, I'd suggest North Allegheny!"

    "I graduated from PRHS, and my only regret about going to Pine-Richland is that I only went there for the last 2 years. My parents moved to Pine Twp. from Franklin Park so I could go to P-R instead of NA, and I am so glad they did! My sister went to NA from 3rd grade on and didn't like any of the schools she went to...P-R is smaller than NA or other nearby school districts (e.g. Seneca Valley) so you don't feel lost in the crowd. I was able to participate in more things at P-R than I would have at bigger high schools--I was part of 2 choirs and played a sport. At bigger schools, I wouldn't have made the choirs or the team. As far as academics at P-R, they are just as good or better than a lot of the private schools. I did my first 2 years of high school at a private school, and some of my non-honors/AP classes at P-R were actually more challenging than the classes at my private school. I couldn't be happier or prouder to call myself a Pine-Richland Alum!!"

    "This school is for the elite of the North HIlls. The popular kids rule the school and it is a very scary place for those who the popular kids decide don't fit in. Try outs for cheerleading, sports and dance team are all rigged. The administration has not implimented any programs at the high school level to promote the kids working together - they do not teach acceptance, tolerance and respect. This school has a reputation in the area for entitled kids with bad attitiudes. As far as their test scores, they are just ok. They are weak in math and science at the high school level. Their english department appears to be fairly good, as well as, the social studies. But not as good as other ghig schools in the north hills who have student bodies that are much more economically diverse and friendly."
