Park Hill High School continues to be the grandest school of all in the state of Missouri! It contains committed staff viewing passing students as their greatest responsibility in their jobs, with students overall being proud to be a part of the community. The school challenges their students to strive for excellence and succession in all they do, with rigorous testing and challenging subjects, but with all the support students could ask for. School culture is diverse in all aspects as it encourages student to be proud of their school as well as themselves and has several during co-curricular activities and after school activities from the arts to sports and clubs of particular interests, and proudly welcomes foreign students to study in our great facility . In conclusion my school puts our lives in the path towards college.

Going to Park Hill High School was an experience I am grateful to have had. As much as many students say they dislike our school, they say it out of the want to fit in with other students from other schools. Park Hill provides an experience you can't get at other high schools. While the main priority is to learn, Park Hill pushes for excellence in and out of the classroom. It is expected that we are good students in school, and good citizens in the world. Providing real life experiences and activities, we are prepared to head off to college and into the world.
The main goal of Park Hill is to have students take AP courses. Because of this, it is very unlikely to drop an AP class, even if you are failing. Counselors are selective of the students they know because it is a large school. However, they are nice and helpful. Generally, the teachers are nice and caring, but there will always be the few that are not.
Athletics are unconsciously put ahead of almost evrything else. Planning of events or assemblies is not fantastic either. Overall, it seems mediocre.
