Plymouth-Canton Community Schools Reviews

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!
Review Plymouth-Canton Community Schools
I attended PCCS district for over 10 years and it was the best education I could get. The teachers were always willing to work with me to make sure my grades were to par. I met some of my best friends here. The staff does a really great job of going out of their way to make sure students are in a comfortable learning environment. If you attend here you will see things you won't always see at other schools such as a large range of diversity, walking between schools on cold winter days to get to your next class and a large selection of classses to pick from. PCCS is great!
The Plymouth-Canton Community school district is very friendly to the students attending.The teaching staff at the schools is absolutely amazing. The teachers actually care about their students and will go out of their way to help a student if they see they are struggling. There are multiple occasions where students were forced to go to school even when the roads were frozen over and the temperature was close to -20 degrees. The students were then forced to walk in between the buildings at the high school where some students even experienced frost bite. The administration also needs to work on it's budgeting. Fantastic programs like the theatre program, the choir and just the liberal arts department suffered while the sport teams received all new equipment. I believe the Plymouth Canton Community is a great school district but there are definitely things that can be fixed.
