    I went to Piute from 6th-part of 7th grade till I moved back to PA. I loved being in that school and hated to move. I am now 35 yrs old and still remember it like it was yesterday. I love Piute and always will. I wish there was a way that I could get a copy of all the kids that were there when I was. I'd like to get ahold of some of my old friends and see how they're doing. The years I was there were 1987-1989. If u can help I'd very much appreciate it as I do not remember everyone's names. Thank u very much.

    Several of the teachers at this school are totally disgruntled and like to air their gripes on line and complaints about the principal and budget. Mr Glatfelter isn't responsible for the huge budget cuts. So Ms Nighbert Ms Del la Tova Jenny Fuller (and you don't even teach in this district any more) and especially Lori Christensen who likes to stir up negativity if you don't like your jobs go find different careers. Students needs positive role models depsite the budget and what your benefits are you get far better benefits than any other person in this state be happy you have a job!

    I love Piute its so fun. I am in the advanced 7/8th grade band class . Band Is so fun u play in concerts and u get to march in the lancaster christmas parade. The have very nice teachers Like Mr. Adriano Mr. Ervin Ms. Kingsley and Coach Hazard. I was in the girls volleyball team but they got rid of volleyball because of budget cuts. The lunches are good to like their salads and burritos. Oh ya and I am in the 8th grade.

    I am an eighth grade GATE student at Piute Middle School and I will be promoting in just a few weeks. I'm so depressed that I will be leaving this school; I've become so attached to it. The teachers are great and our principals are doing their absolute best to keep the best learning environment possible. Piute's test scores have gone up multiple points the last few years and we've beaten part of the schools in the district. This year has been the first year in many that Piute has gotten the music program back. I'm in the guitar class and the new music teacher Mr. Adriano is absolutely fantastic. I've learned so much from him; he is very skilled. I'd definitely recommend taking his music class next year Band Guitar or Advanced Guitar. These last three years have been so memorable and I'm going to miss this great school.

    I Attend Piute Middle School And And Iam In The Seventh Grade And The Thing I Like About The School Is the Teachers Like Currisa Welsh Donald Hodges Cathy Wright Mr. Deshler Ms.Kingsly.The 2 Main Things I Think What Makes The School Looks Like It Has A Bad Reputation Is The Attitude Of Some Students Who Dont Treat The Teachers And Staff With The Same Respect That They Treat Every One With.Also The Attitude Of Some Students To Treat The School Bad By Littering Not Following Rules Like Fighting Arguing And The Gum Rule.

    I have to say that Piute Middle School has taken an active stance in ensuring that each student receives a quality education. I also like the fact of the Piute Newsletter which is sent home to keep the parents up to date as to what is going on in the school. The other thing that I like about the school is the fact that the teachers that my children have had are very flexible when it comes to parent teacher conferences. Some I have done online because of my work schedule and others I have done over the phone. Also when I ask for a weekly report of how my child is doing they are willing to oblige me in my request. It is a very good school.

    I have a student at Piute in the GATE program. My child feels valued by her teachers and in turn values her teachers. Her GATE classes are wonderful; I wish all her classes were GATE level. My daughter had some problems with teasing her first year; teachers & administrators corrected the problem immediately! Do not let 'low' school test scores influence your opinion of this fine school; my child does A-level work because she works hard and cares! Bravo Piute teachers! for inspiring my child! Suggestions? A Drama program! She'd love to participate!

    My son had the best ever teacher while he attended Piute. Her name is Jeanette Crounse. She was his band teacher. My son was small with an attitude. Mrs. Crounse took him under her wing and showed him love and respect and made him realize his potential. She never made him feel like he was a pain or bother to her. He was having problems outside of school and she was still there to help. I praise Mrs. Crounse for all she did or my son. I believe he is a better person for having Jeanette Crounse as his teacher. I want to thank her for all the hard times she went through with us. For all the time and energy and money she put into her program to make these kids feel like they deserve the very best life has to offer. I also want to thank the principals for supporting Mrs. Crounse. You are all the BEST! Thank you.
