Peninsula School District Reviews
I’m currently a senior at Peninsula High School. I’ve been here all four years and I’m so happy about that. Peninsula is a family. I know a lot of school claim to be a family but Peninsula really does feel like a family. During that Fall we lost two students. Kyle and James were both well known at school they were super out going. After their passing Peninsula came together to support each other. Even if people didn’t know each other we were there. Then again this Fall we lost another student. When Maryaj passed away it was hard for me because she was always there for me. But I knew I had people all around me. The school also provided help during those ocasiones. We’re so supporting and accepting of each other. I am so greatfuly to be apart of Peninsula High School.
I was very nervous to start high school my freshman year and I had a very introverted personality. But thanks to the caring people in the school the counselor, vice principal, principle, and teachers They helped me gain confidence. I don't recognize the person I was but thanks to the environment of the school I love the person I am and the people around me. I feel ready and motivated to start college thanks to the schools amazing Avid program and teachers. Peninsula helped me find most of my interests like my passion for guitar and sports like water polo. This school has helped me grow as a person and has helped me focus on pursing my future.
While their encouragement of diversity is respectable, the condition of their buildings and teachers are poor. The school is literally falling apart and nothing is done. All the teachers do is complain about their jobs, and think they are taking a stand by refusing to teach. I hate to complain because this is a very fortunate area to live in , but something needs to change.
