The problem with this school is that it is a microcosm of all of my problem with the American education system.
In a very good location. Some other good things, too. Sports are taken very seriously as far as funding and opportunities provided, even sometimes at the expense of other clubs and activities. There are issues with administration and communication within the school. Some teachers are also armed for student protection. The exterior of the school looks like a prison and several classrooms are in modular units fenced by 10-foot emergency exit only fences.
One that I really enjoyed about Peyton was the teachers. It is a small enough school that you can get a lot of one on one help from the teachers if you need it. One thing that I would change about the school is that I would add more foreign language classes, the only class they offer is Spanis.
I think the Teacher-student relationships are strong, but the academics we learn are very easy. I do not have to try very hard or study very much and I still maintain a 3.7 Gpa.
The staff at Peyton are excellent. They have always been very willing to work with me and are always available if needed.
Peyton Senior High School is great! The teachers are wonderful, and do their best to prepare children for their future. They genuinely care about their students and do everything they can to make sure they understand the lesson being taught. All of the teachers in the school have a passion for teaching, and it definitely shows in class.
Last year (my sophomore year) was my first year. When I first arrived I was welcomed by the teachers and was made feel very welcome by a majority of the students. Choosing my schedule was new (my old school did not allow us to do that) and the counselors were very understanding and helped put me in the classes I needed to be in. The curriculum is pretty average for a public school and I feel like there could be some changes that would allow the students to be better prepared and have a better high school experience.
I have gone to the Peyton School district ever since preschool, and i love it here. The teachers, coaches, and students are fun, caring, and kind. It's also a small school which is great. We get a lot of one on one time with our teachers, and they will do anything to help us succeed and fully understand what is going on in our classes. They take extra time to help us learn, give us notes and hints to help us better understand, and sit down with us and explain what the lesson is and how to do it. Once again, I love this school, and i wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
Sports here are great. Everyone gets along and really comes together and works together as a team
The teachers at my school are pretty good but not the greatest. It also varies because there are some very good teachers and some not so good so it balances out.
The classes that are offered are not diverse enough. There just the main core classes and couple of electives. The scheduling is nice because we have school Monday through Thursday.
Other than sports teams there is only a few other extracurricular activities. These include robotics, match wits, and FBLA. These are not great choices for people who don't like sports. So most people end up playing a sport just because everyone else is.
This school is unique because of its size. It a is a small school so every one knows each other. A downside is that there isn't a lot of new people to get to know.
We have a good enforcement of discipline but some students are deviant and do not follow those rules.
The school provides a variety of different delicious and healthy food options on a daily basis.
the school does an excellent job of telling the parents what is happening, and do an amazing job of enforcing the rules as well.
The sports programs excel at involving the students and meeting their needs.
