Pleasant Hill R-III School District Reviews

I would say my overall experience with Pleasant Hill was about as average as most of my friends. I go to dances, I participate in sports, get good grades, and have an average social life here at the high school. Over the last three years there have been many learning opportunities, good and bad, that I will always have with me. Softball season was a good reminder that I will always have a family here at Pleasant Hill, even though some have moved on and graduated and some who I will be leaving behind when I graduate as well. I would have liked to see some changes my senior year. If we would have had a vote to where our time was going, I wouldn't have voted for where our time is going right now. I think there are better ways to get students motivated to learn and do homework, with allowing them slightly more freedom. In high school I think it's time to start arranging our mentalities to get us prepared for college and or entering the workforce for the following year.

The Pleasant Hill School District is very small, which leads to its own advantages. All of the students know each other, which creates very close friendships. The bullying rate is extremely low, and there are very few cliques seen within classes. Majority of the teachers at Pleasant Hill love what they do, which reflects in their work. There are many clubs and activities students are encouraged to try to broaden their horizons. Since the town is small, the diversity rates are low. Overall, safety in the school is relatively good; there has never been a major issue compared to surrounding schools.
My experience at Pleasant Hill High School was quite poor, the food every day made me not hungry at all and it made me not want to eat. The teachers were all pretty amazing, but there were a select few teachers that would light up my day and make it bearable. It was all white people too, maybe a few POC and the college readiness is okay at most.
