Stathopoulos and Flaig have both attended PIISD their entire school careers.

Flaig says one thing she’s enjoyed about attending PIISD is the people. “It’s a close community. I like it a lot. There’s a lot of nice people,” she explained.

Stathopoulos says the experience of growing up in PIISD schools has been quite progressive. “They offer a lot of dual enrollment classes here, and we have a lot of good teachers that work here. They definitely make learning a lot easier,” she expanded.

Stathopoulos and Flaig both said they were quite thankful for their calculous teacher Mrs. Gonzales. “She is awesome,” Flaig commented.
