Pershing High School Reviews

By , a Former Student on

I graduated from Pershing in 1973. I guess it is still failing, in many regards, to achieve high student performance. It is a predominantly Black school. I, myself, am African American. I remember when I was told I had to go there (I preferred Cass Tech), I was disappointed. I guess I was headed to the school with the thugs and bad reputation. Admittedly, many of the faculty were dedicated educators, but going to school with security guards and cops on campus was a little disturbing back in 73. I wonder what it is like now: Swat Team patrols? I hope not. I did love that school. I had a lot of good friends and good teachers.
