Plymouth-Canton Community Schools Reviews

My experience with Plymouth- Canton specifically PCEP, the high schools, can be summed up by saying I couldn't wait to get out and go to college. Having three high schools in one definitely makes one feel like a small fish in a big pond. Granted there is something for everyone, literally, the opportunity and diversity of classes that could be taken was amazing! The administration was very uptight and by the time senior year came around, it felt like we were treated as the freshman we walked the halls with. Snow days are a big issue in the fact that they really don't take the cold weather seriously. For example, when I was in high school the windchill cut of was -20 degrees before school was canceled and even being -19 we'd have school. Now if we all stayed inside it wouldn't have been an issue except for the fact that every hour we change buildings. Overall, I definitely would've rather gone to a smaller scale high school.

I really enjoyed attending Plymouth High School because my school was very different from most high schools. There high school is comprised of 3 buildings: Plymouth, Canton, and Salem. We walk between the buildings in rain, snow, or heat to get to class. The best thing about going here was meeting a great variety of people. There are nearly 6,500 students, so there is always an opportunity to meet someone new. I also liked how students can join programs like STEM, which allows students to have classes with the same people so the school feels smaller even though it is big. In the future, I would like to see a bigger push to get students in the STEM program and in the International Bachelor Program. I would also like to see the school make more of an effort to clear the paths between schools because I have witnessed students slip on ice walking between schools!
Plymouth-Canton Community Schools provided me with the opportunity to choose from a wide variety of classes, enabling me to test my potential in varying fields of study. Being in a school like PCEP is like a fly amidst woods; students from different sections of the society come here for better learning experiences, which gave me the chance to study at such a diverse school. I think that discrimination is a malpractice which needs to be banned and PCEP follows the policy of "equal opportunities to all". Even though PCEP is diverse, competitive, and autonomous, it has some flaws like walking on the paths even during snow or rain. For PCEP, student's safety is extremely important, therefore there are security guards on the campus to pertain to the safety guidelines. I hope that PCEP will keep moving forward toward the success and help the students Learn, Prepare, and Thrive.
