My experience at Phillips High School has been the best. Phillips is the most comfortable school I ever went to. Anytime I needed any assistance my teachers will always accommodate me. I have went from making bad decisions to making good decision and now about to graduate. Phillips taught me some real life skill that I am able to use outside of school , and in school. Not only that but Philips taught me about leadership and think about something before u do it. Something that’s overall about Phillips is caring. Anytime I had anything bad going on or needed my teachers assistance they where there.

I loved my 4 years at Phillips. It was a great experience due to the support systems there. Everyone is very friendly but academic wise, things were really tough. It was not an easy school. You had to actually do work. You have to actually stay self-motivated and dedicated. I would not change anything because it shaped me into this very humble, dedicated person I am today.
I loved the camaraderie between the students. I have seen many students as well as myself build strong relationships that ultimately guaranteed success. But what I would like to see change is the quality of the school. The bathrooms were always stinking and dirty. The classrooms had rats and the food was horrible.
