Pleasant Grove Independent School District Reviews

Pleasant Grove offers a variety of classes for a well-rounded education. I like that we are able to take dual-credit classes to get a jump-start on our careers.

One thing that I would like to see change is, an opportunity to hold a higher class rank for grade point average when you opt to take the dual credit classes in lieu of AP classes. My grade point is higher with dual-credit than others with AP, yet my class rank is lower. It doesn't make a lot of sense that a student making a barely passing grade has a higher class rank just because they are taking an AP class.

I began my journey at Pleasant Grove Independent School District when I was a freshman in high school. Their art program amazing and I've taken art all 4 years. If you are interested in art, consider going to PG. Also, the teachers really care about you. The school is small enough you can get one on one help, but large enough you don't feel everyone is watching what you do.
Pleasant Grove has all the intangibles a successful academic institution needs in that it has great students, teachers, and a great environment for you to grow. You can excel in academics, extracurriculars, athletics, and far more if you want to. Unfortunately, the school doesn't receive adequate funding leaving students short of some resources.
