Pendleton Heights High School Ratings & Reviews
Both of my children have attended South Madison schools since kindergarten. My oldest is now in 8th grade and looking forward to attending PHHS. We have only experienced one grade level with an incompetent teacher, but they were hired for their coaching, not teaching experience. One key item that happened, that many people in the community forget, is the swath of cuts made by Dr. Warmke. His legacy will leave this corporation behind for years and possibly decades. He cut programs, teachers, requirements, etc. I was never so happy to see an administrator leave this corporation!! Now that Mr. Buck has replaced him, I believe this corporation will rise to the top in this area. The high school has MANY electives that allow students to explore various career options and the vocational programs (which Mike Pence said would be a focus) are succeeding even without support from the state level. I feel that my children will receive an excellent education at this school corporation!
This school is seriously mediocre. They do very little for the students. There are so many issues and problems and yet no one does anything about it despite complaints and efforts. The counselors are just completely awful and could seriously not care less about your future unless you do sports. Most teachers are that way. I can think of maybe 5 teachers there that genuinely do care and try to give their all and ACTUALLY teach but that is very rare here. The class periods are too short. There's almost a test every week, sometimes more than just one and it's just so fast paced. It's too fast paced and the required curriculum and all the different diplomas it offers (which literally no other school has) are completely ridiculous. Also the students are genuinely awful people, the majority of them.
I graduated from this school in 2010 and I must say that I got an exemplary education there. I graduated 31st in a class of about 300 with a Summa cum Laude diploma and I wasn't the only one to graduate with honors. The school, for me, definitely helped me to succeed. I know that there were other students in my advanced classes that didn't try and the teachers were able to inspire them to succeed. Not a single student flunked out of my classes.
This is the typical, walk around and smile, ACT like everything is the best and perfect. The system is SO FAKE. They publish caring about the kids. What they truly mean is, if you are financially well off, give them all your time and money, and build barns for your kids to become the next Hank Aaron, you'll love it. Those kids can do anything they choose. Incuding bullying, harrassement etc. If your not in that popular group, they target your children and to quote one administrator at the shool- 'birds of a feather flock together' - even when that person has never met your child. Even those that are not financially well off, try to act as if they are to keep thier children from getting targeted. The shool is nice, and many programs are offered. Most of the teachers, those that aren't retired in place, seem to really care about the kids. If you can make it through the politics, your child might have a shot.
This school system is just amazing for my child!
