I had a pretty good experience throughout high school at Philip High School. My siblings and I came to the area during middle school and high school. The academics were a strong pull to go there and made a big difference in my education. The math and science teachers were very helpful and I thought that they prepared me very well for college. There are many different extracurricular activities that are offered at Philip High School. From things such as FFA, FCCLA, Student Council, NHS, and many more. It is a very welcoming environment and I enjoyed my time while attending.

I love being in the small class of 19. Everybody becomes like a family. It is really nice to have so many people in one place that you know care about you. The teachers are all extremely nice and would bend head over heels for any of the students. I really am going to miss being here with what I consider my family. The only thing that I would like to see change would be to incorporate different classes. It feels like everybody is in all the same classes because there is not much to pick from. This is mostly because of our small school size.
It is a good school with an exceptional education, but the people in my class are bullies and no one does anything about it. It is really frustrating because the people in sports who have parents that will go in to the coach or principle and yell at them because their child isn't playing, are the people that get to start, even though they aren't very good. I love the teachers and the education, I just don't like the people and sports. I usually cheer for the other teams at games because the people on the court/field/track, don't deserve to win.
