  • I am a current 8th grade student at PJHS. This school is the best! Like: All the teachers respect you and treat you like an individual. The teachers also always do their best to help us (the students) and they go out of their way to help us as well by coming before school and staying late after school. Pontiac is a clean, safe, and friendly place to be! The classes are also very amazing. Ex. Depco is a class they offer where you can create your own shirt, make your own carton on the computer, photographing, a pilot simulator, and much more. The school has gotten even better since they added the new addition! (6th-8th grade)
    Dislikes: We can't carry totes around to every class, but I asked the principal about it and its pending!

  • Pontiac Jr High School just added a new addition over the summer. Now it serves 6th-8th grade. I'm an 8th grader at this school and I have to say its the best Jr High I'v ever been to! The teachers are really nice and are always there for you. You always feel comfortable. The school has the best classes like depco, journalism, spanish, and service learning! The area is really great as well. Not only are you close by the greatest school ever, but your very close to grocery stores, furniture stores, and restaurants. Of course there's a Wal-Mart close by! Whats a city without Wal-Mart?!?1 Haha well its rare that a student actually write a review about their school but our school is just so great and welcoming I thought I might as well. So if your thinking about moving in this area, I would say its a great choice!
