They have been cycling through a lot of English teachers as of recent and the overall environment is very athletics based. I was in almost every extracurricular you could have been in and I loved every one of them. The only problem is not all of them get enough funding to succeed.

Plainview-Elgin-Millville was such a great experience. The staff is extremely intelligent, and caring for their students. This is the school for any family looking for a small, very close connected community. P-E-M is one of those schools where everyone knows everyone, and when we do well in sports the whole community goes to watch them play. I would recommend to anyone looking for an amazing living experience, and a well connected community.
This school is a very close knit school. Everyone, including adults and students are bonded and look out for one another.
