Peotone High School is an overall average school. Throughout my years at the school there has been many administrative changes and teacher changes, so the school was constantly changing (sometimes for better, sometimes for worse) the whole time I was attending. The schools administration does heavily focus on the safety of their students and is willing to work with students and parents. One of my main complaints of the school is the fact that’s sports and clubs are so heavily influenced by your family involvement in the school, it’s very much a name game and students whose families aren’t as involved have a tough time being recognized for their achievements.

Peotone High School brought many great aspects to my education but I also feel like my education was hindered since the school didn't have very many resources. As I came to college, I discovered that many other student came in with dual credit classes from their high school but that wasn't offered to us. I do feel as though the students became a family and we all worked together to find common interests. Without the relationships I made with the teachers, I wouldn't have been able to find such an amazing college to attend. The teachers really did work hard to make the classes as enjoyable, yet challenging as possible. Not only was I involved in sports, but I participated in many extracurricular activities such as Science club, Best Buddies, Student Council and many more. Even though Peotone High School didn't have the best resources available, the educators put a considerable amount of effort into making sure we had as many opportunities as possible to thrive after high school life.
So many opportunities for clubs, activities, and sports because of it being a small school. I've been involved as class president for four years and have had many opportunities and experiences because of it. The theater and music programs are amazing as well as show choir. The teachers really care and create personal relationships with their students since the school is so small.
