Awards and Recognitions
Awards and recognitions are an important part of Pickens Middle School. Our students who attain the all-A or A/B honor roll receive "Sparks' Cards" entitling them to a free reward each nine weeks. Students who are "caught" exhibiting exemplary character, doing good deeds, or performing other general praiseworthy behaviors receive "Excel Cents"; these tickets may be redeemed at the canteen for free snacks and drinks.
Pickens Middle School has been recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School, a National Service Learning Leader School, a Palmetto's Finest School, and a 2011 National School to Watch. We have several teachers who write and receive grants every year as well as receive local, state, and national awards for excellence in teaching.
We are very proud of our students and teachers for all of their hard work.
