I have not received the quality education that's promised everyday. There are things that I should've learned that I will have to catch up on in college. They focus on students that don't want to learn, holding students that do want to learn back. Students they try to get back on track don't care about their education, they show up to fight, cause drama, and socialize. If teachers are constantly babysitting how can they really teach. The discipline is to lenient and they need to crack down on the bad apples of the school. They do have some great teachers there. Its nice to have a person to talk to that will be truthful, give good advice, help you through your struggles and show that they care, Peoria High needs more teachers like them.

Peoria High is a well known school around central Illinois. The positive things about my school is that it offers many different programs. Peoria High offers a fine arts program which is ran by talented experienced teachers in every subject of the arts. Peoria High also offers a very well ran athletic department including the football program which is currently holding state champion. Peoria High’s staff encourages students to go for what they believe in and also helps students understand many different ways of learning and understanding. One thing I would change about Peoria High is the violence. Peoria High does not have the brightest reputation from the past years. If I had the choice, I would change the way security handles events and student crimes. Overall, this is by far one of the most inspiring schools I have attended.
My overall experience with Peoria High has been very good. Some things that I like there is that the school is very diverse. There is a very minimal to none amount of bullying. There are a lot of clubs and sports you can join, and the feel of the school kind of makes you feel like everyone is family. However the only actually bad thing about the school is that the lunches are absolutely terrible, and almost inedible at times.
