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
It is an awesome school! Has many classes to choose as electives and core classes. Most teachers are good (consider the fact that there are around 300 teachers and 3800 students). They do prepare you for AP exams, with practice exams and tutoring sessions. They have ESOL programs for foreign students. An art magnet program and an International studies magnet program. Many clubs and ways to get involved with the 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.
