Pickens High is a great school that offers specialized classes beyond the basics. It also values the arts as much as the other classes.

I moved up here this year and thought it would be alot easier than my old school. Well, i was right but that only is because they don't care what you do or if you do any of your work.

My children are doing almost 100% better at Pickens High School than they were at Cherokee High School. I think it is the way the classes are set up to be able to be in the class longer and have less classes per day. It sure has made report card time a great. Pickens High school should be proud of ...  Read more
