Pleasant Grove Independent School District Reviews

The district is all image and no substance, just ask the marketing director. What a waste of taxpayer dollars to employ a highly-paid marketing director that has absolutely no contact with the students.

For example, all of the math teachers have math education certification only; not one teacher was a math major in college. Teachers who essentially teach advanced math and calculus, but do not know it. Teachers who teach French, but are not bilingual. Teachers who teach Science, but do not have a Science Fair, etc.

There is a tremendous teacher shortage due to competent people choosing more lucrative careers. The staff at Pleasant Grove soon learn that awarding an A is the path of least resistance, because parents equate an A with learning. So sad, but they sure have an incredible stadium and training facility!

I have gone to Pleasant Grove since kindergarten, and I believe it is an excellent school.
To begin, most of the students know each other on a personal basis, which always creates a friendly environment. The size of the school is just small enough for students to get a chance to have one-on-one help from teachers.
Our school also offers a multitude of AP and Dual Credit classes, for more advanced students to get ready for college.
In addition, many of the UIL activities and clubs are state and national award winning, and the varsity football has gone to state the past two years, winning in 2017.
Pleasant Grove is proud to say that we are an “AND school”; this means that students get an opportunity to be a part of multiple programs. I, personally, am a member of band, International Thespian Society, National Honor Society, and Keyettes club.
Pleasant Grove is a wonderful school, and I am proud to be a hawk!
My experience at Pleasant Grove High School was definitely positive based on the community I built throughout the school. No matter what program you thrived in, all programs supported each other, especially the arts. Being involved in the arts felt like a family because you would support each other by volunteering for fundraisers, creating signs to send off teams for competition, and of course, attending events that were important to them. Because of this alone, it made school feel more like a second home.
