Principal's Message

Students and Parents,


Now that the 2021-2022 school year is well under way, let me first say thank you to everyone that has made me feel welcomed. We have all hit the ground running and are leaning forward to meet each new challenge that arises. Students have settled in and are working hard to exceed the expectations set by their teachers. Teachers are working tirelessly to challenge their students and guide them toward the goal of successfully graduating and adapting to life after high school.


The team here at Pickett County High School is committed to insuring all students receive the best instruction possible in an environment that students feel safe and secure. We also realize that you, the parents, play a crucial role in your child’s education and welcome your help and feedback.


I will devote all of my effort to insure Pickett County High School continues its proud traditions and maintains the highest of standards. My door is always open so you are welcome anytime.


With your help, we can make this a successful and prosperous school year.




Mitch Buckman
