Platte County R-III School District Reviews
Platte County's School District is definitely one of the better districts out there, especially within the Kansas City area. There are a large variety of different classes to take that can give students a both well rounded experience that still stays somewhat relevant to the students interests. There are many extracurricular educational activities as well, for those that want to put the extra effort. There are also a ton of different after school activities and clubs to be a part of. These range from many different sports, to academic competition clubs, to robotics, business skills, and beyond. The teachers are for the most part friendly and willing to help. There are exceptions but every district will have those, and the administration is generally reasonable. There are some criticisms to be had though, and they mainly pertain to budgetary restrictions that are hard to control, these include the food and the run down bathrooms.
Platte County High school does not care about its students. I have had teachers bully me, harass me, and I do not feel safe coming to school. The teachers do not put in effort to challenging the smarter students while still helping the old students. I have gone to this school district since sixth grade, and I have seen little to no improvement. Multiple friends have gone to counselors seeking help with mental issues just to get their families called and no help given. The schedules are constantly messed up at the beginning of the year, and many students have to fight their way out of the flexible learning plan program. The school cares about test scores, not the students.
I believe this is a good safe learning environment. I believe the administration could work harder at scheduling and enrollment preparedness. Last two years the schedules have been in terrible shape and Seniors are not getting the classes they want or need due to errors in scheduling, spending valuable class time fixing schedules and sticking students in classes just to cover a criteria but not what is best for student. This has now trickled into the middle school scheduling and needs to be addressed before the mid year.
