Overall it’s a great school, but I wish things could be handled differently. Students aren’t treated the way the should by other students (some) and when it’s addressed to the principal it may not be taken care of in the most appropriate way. I couldn’t imagine going to another school. I rate it 4/5 because there are a lot more unnecessary rules being put into place and I feel as if students are targeted and favored. This will determine if someone gets punished when they should or not.
I had an excellent experience with Plainwell Schools! I went all the way from kindergarten to graduation through Plainwell. The teachers are great, the extracurricular programs are phenomenal and they definitely prepare you for further education. I'd send my children there in a heartbeat!
