Pitman High School Reviews
not a good school
Bad teachers and administration, scummy low life kids, bad curriculum, declining scores and state rating ... not sure why anyone would consider this a good high school.
Pitman high school is full of violence and drugs and is one of the worst schools i've ever seen!!! the kids are mean and teachers are dumb. enough said!! bye
I attended this school system from 1954-1966 and have had family members in the system since 1945. In more recent years my own children have attende the system from 1991-2002. So I feel I have a pretty good overview of the system. Until the 1990's I believe they had the view "If it ain't broke don't fix it." Administrators were from town and knew the culture and the people. Most importantly they knew the kids and the parents. I taught in a very large neighboring school district and saw how children got lost in that large system even though in theory they had many more programs they could be involved in. The personal touch was the salvation for my own children and it stood me and my brothers and sisters and parents in good stead, so to speak.
One of my son's had a rather pronounced learning disability and he was able to get the help he needed and is todayhe is working on his masters at a local university. This would not have been possible without the dedicated teaching staff at the middle school level. There are problems and no school is perfect but my sons have all done well and I would recommend Pitman schools to anyone looking for a place to raise their family.
