Peninsula School District Reviews

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.

The district provides a lot of opportunities for students to not only get involved in school activities, but also community events. It also allows students for valuable resources that help them regulate their grades and continue to further their education.
Over my four years I had the pleasure to attend peninsula high school. I really enjoyed my fours years here and I would have to say that the schools environment is more than welcoming. But with the kind teachers and excepting students comes a price. The age of the school adds character but also adds a bit of a concern on how much longer the building will last. In addition to the school groundwork, the national bases of the school is below par, but what school isn't. I believe the school could use a renovation to reinvent the school standard. It would complete the circle for my "Perfect school".
