    "My experience with the Pickens county high school is not one of high regard. The administration is inconsiderate of all students except the chosen few. The dress code is unacceptable, and the only thing that saves the school itself from complete incompetency is the few teachers that actually care if the students pass or not."

    "Parent and teacher. Students are well behaved when required. Discipline overall is not enforced. Make out sessions in the halls (PDA as it is called) are common. Some teachers work hard but most allow students to do whatever and still pass them. They lower the bar. Major discipline problems are ignored or covered up. It all depends really on who you know. If a kid gets into trouble and their parents are prominent in the community the punishment is quite different from someone whose family is not well known or liked. Its a below average education. If your child can not graduate from Pickens then I don't know where they can. With the Block schedule students who pass their classes often take multiple PE's to stay in school their senior year. What a quality education right?"

    "My children are doing almost 100% better at Pickens High School than they were at Cherokee High School. I think it is the way the classes are set up to be able to be in the class longer and have less classes per day. It sure has made report card time a great. Pickens High school should be proud of all they are doing for these children and I think it is one of the cleanest schools I have ever been in."

    "i'm a former student of Pickens County High School. while i was there, i enjoyed probably some of the best moments ever. the teachers were amazing...they acted like they really cared about you. the band program was absolutely amazing. mr. gallagher is one of the best teachers ever and an amazing role model in my life. i miss him greatly. pickens is basically heaven compared to the school i go to now. at pickens, there is a friendly environment, and the teachers respect your opinions. they let you have your word in but at the same time maintaining a structured environment."
