  • Recommended January 29, 2008 - Pickering Middle School is one of the best choices for public school. In Pickering, the teachers are greatly involved on how the students are doing. For extracurricular activities Pickering offers music, physical education, mcas classes, and computers. Students get four extracurricular classes throughout the year. Each extracurricular class is worth 3 credits. Each major is worth 5 credits. I would highly recommend Pickering Middle School. - Posted by Student/Alumni
