Peoria Heights High School is a small school. It is a strong school that does what it can with it's size. It has extra opportunities due to its size, but it also has its problems. There are very limited classes and few resources. Many of the teachers, especially in the english in math department, display political and gender biases that coincide with a liberal agenda. The administration of the school is strong but submissive to the teachers more than the needs of the students. The school has the charm and spirit of a small town, and it is great to grow at, but do not expect the strongest academics. The school is very unsafe in terms of updated safety mechanisms. There are limited classes and few academic resources. Overall, the school is good, but it has many problems to overcome.

I have gone to Peoria Heights High School my entire high school career. The structure of the building is very unusual and odd, but i have grown to like it. I have learned to focus although noises are around me, and i have had the ability to talk to everyone at my school because of the smaller size. Also, due to the small size, i have had the chance to go to many different things and be apart of many different organizations and groups.
The teachers are very approachable and easy to talk to. They are understanding and listen very well. I feel like I can tell them anything and I know what I tell them will be safe and secure. The teachers have a very high understanding of each of their subject as well. Their teaching styles are incorporated into their subjects everyday so the students are able to know what is going on in the classroom and not feel lost. The teachers also use effective communication skills by not moving onto a different topic until the student understands what is being talked about. The teachers also at this school grade the assignments effectively and on time so students know exactly what their grades are in that classroom. As a student at Peoria Heights, I can admit that the students are all very interested in the subjects they learn each day.
