This high school is great choice for many students as the teachers are very helpful and want to see their students succeed, Peoria High School also has a great environment which is a environment filled with pride in their students and sports. Although this high school has great teachers and a good environment it does lack some things like resources for students and does deserve an upgrade in their buildings and technology because they are a bit behind in both. Overall the things they lack they make up for with the attention to details their teachers have and the effort they put in every school year to make sure their students recieve the best education possible.

The Peoria High School offers unique programs that help students a lot; Some of these programs/ classes are agriculture science that you can take to get all the science credits you need or the pride club where the LGBTQ students can gather together and talk. Not including all the awesome clubs and sports on our campus. However, Having more clubs for the immigrants would be great because it would give them the chance to make new friends, feel welcomed, and strengthen their language.
Peoria is hands down the best. Every teacher I've had has how much they enjoy their job, even through the hard times. They've been some of the most encouraging people I know. Because of thoes teachers, I got super involved with my school's FFA chapter and theatre club. Peoria is very true to their no tolerance policy which really does help make the school feel safe. We could use a few fixer uppers, but for the most part, we have a nice campus. Our principal is so helpful and he supports every club and sport as much as he can. I'm proud to be a Peoria Panther and I hope the new kids every year enjoy it as much as I have.
