Dr. Phillips is a school that has pushed my academically with teachers that care. I have been able to pursue a well-rounded education that includes college-prep academics while being exposed to community outreach, clubs that enhance their critical thinking skills, advance classes including many AP and honors classes and various sports i.e. basketball, baseball, soccer, STEM Club, Coding Club, Art Club, and many Honor Societies. It have lots of extra curricular activities, it keeps me busy every single day! The teachers are very dedicated to their students and demonstrate a commitment to excellence in education.
Review Dr. Phillips High School
Join all sorts of clubs if you can! There is a wide variety of clubs on campus that can help you fit in and make friends and they will absolutely help you get into college. I was a member of five honor societies, the beta club, history club, and love letters club (we wrote cards for children in hospitals) as well as a four year member of the women's lacrosse team. It's definitely possible to do all of this and take 5 AP classes at the same time! Most clubs are student run so they are pretty relaxed. There is a decent amount of help from the club sponsors but not so much from the administration.
Dr. Phillips high school is unlike any other school. I transferred to dr. phillips high during my junior year and since then I've never felt more at home. They embraced me with open arms, I was exposed to new opportunities to Advanced courses, interactive clubs, and a competitive class. Everyone in my grade is extraordinary in their own way because DP has invested in giving everyone an opportunity to succeed. There's a club for everything, the guidance counselors are the absolute best especially the career counselor, and the teachers care about each and every student. Dr. Phillips high fosters growth, individuality and acceptance. This atmosphere is especially important for teenagers because adolescence is confusing and stressful but DP helps students embrace their growth.
