    I LOVE PISGAH. They have everything from sports to theatre and they dont discriminate against any after school activities. Most schools spend more money on football or baseball but each afterschool activity was about even in funding!!!

    Its Great! Its much better than the last school I went to. Everyone is so nice and kind. Many of the teachers do their best to help you pass their class.

    I have had the opportunity to work in several different school systems over the course of my tenure. Pisgah is by far the most wonderful place I have ever worked! Teachers really love and care about all their students. The administrations is supportive to teachers yet they listen and care about the parents and students as well. It is the most warm and friendly place - very family-like atmostphere. I am so happy that my children will attend here in the future!
