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.

Philip is one of the best schools in South Dakota. Everyone there is friendly and accepting to new kids. Sure there are the groups kids are in, but everyone talks to each other and is kind to each other otherwise. Philip expects their kids to strive for higher grades by having a higher grading system, and every kid there works hard.
Philip High School is one of the most academic inclined schools in the state of South Dakota. We have great teachers that make it very easy to learn and help prepare for the future. Our school has been named a distinguished school district for multiple years and many of the students are ready for college when they graduate. Our sports also stand out upon many others in South Dakota. Our football team has made the playoffs the last four years and made it to the semifinals in 2014; also have had a handful of All-State athletes. The volleyball team has made it to the district championship the past several years and last year they were fortunate enough to make it to the State Tournament (7th place).
