    "My daughter is a 10th grader in this system and I have found that her experience with the faculty and staff of this school are rude and extremly unhelpful to anyone who isn't on the basketball/softball/football teams. my other problem with this system is that the teachers don't know their subjects. she has one educator who teaches AP classes, he must look up the questions form the students on the web. I find that this is an inferior enviroment for a student to learn!!!"

    "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."
