Plainfield Community School Corporation Reviews

While Plainfield High School has good intentions about improving student life, these changes are sometimes unprecedented and introduced without student approval. In addition, while the student punishments are often thorough, the generalization of certain infractions (satirical social media post compared to a school shooting threat) create an unfair verdict for many students who don't have any bad intentions. However, there are a multitude of activities to be involved in, teachers who care about their students, and a relaxed environment as opposed to other schools that carry a tense atmosphere. In overall terms, there is work to do, but the work that has been done is executed well.

Plainfield Community School Corporation is very welcoming community. As a student who has attended Plainfield since kindergarten, I can say I have definitely enjoyed my time here. Plainfield's school corporation is constantly praising their students for their accomplishments, and constantly supporting those who need help to succeed. Every single one of my teachers that I have had since I was five years old has helped me, and been genuinely invested in me as a student. They have helped me become the person that I am today, and they have helped shape me into an academically strong, and well rounded human being. I learned not only how to thrive in the classroom, but how to treat others and myself with the utmost respect.
The Plainfield school district is a school district where teachers really help students to become their best selves. I attended Plainfield high school for 3 years and was definitely changed for the better. The building is still fairly new, which helps provide for a great learning environment, and gives the music department a great space to succeed. The only thing I would change would be the school time, I feel that maybe all students would do better if the school started later!
