Awards and Recognitions

Awards and recognitions are an important part of Pickens Middle School. 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. We also recognize our Sparks' Finest each nine weeks for exceptional academics, behavior, and character. 

Pickens Middle School has been named in the past 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.
