I am a 2014 graduate of Pine Prairie High School. I really adored this school. The buildings were very clean and well kept. The principal is very adamant about education and she loves to see her students succeed. It is a family environment.

I am a freshman a PPHS and even though I'm new at this school, I still have many friends, and it's only the 6th day of school!! The band at PPHS is a beginning band so it' perfect for anyone who wants to know what band is like, and since the band is so small.... they DO NOT march, which is a good thing for some people. The Facilities are very well kept as well as the property. The basketball and softball team know what they are doing... but the football team has NO idea what football even means!!! I pick at the football team but I will always have PPHS panther pride in my blood!!!
