My experieince as a student at plainville high school formally, I'd say they could do better. Some teachers you saw the passion for their subject and the love the provided to teach, meanwhile others were there for the check and you knew it. This school does not allocate its finances well either. A lot of money was invested into the sports area of the school but not into the real academic portions. The school as well integrated some weird "rules" we will call them. Kids could not eat in class rooms, which is ironic cause the teachers could. As a school kids need the right energy each day to keep the adrenaline to learn, and if a child is hungry in class I find it wrong to deprive them of that.

My experience at Plainville Community Schools has been very well as well overall although teachers should work on controlling kids more.
Overall, my experience at this school has been awesome. The faculty and administrators put their students first and are willing to help student in anyway possible. Parent involvement is fairly ok and majority of students are friendly and welcoming.
