Once I got into High School, I realized that the students here were more friendly and wanted to know who everyone was. The teachers are amazing and want to help you learn. They also want to push you to do better and I trust them to where I can tell them anything. I love learning and the academics here at Philo test my knowledge and make me want to do harder more preparing classes. My schools always makes sure we have a plan after high school and if we're going to college we're taught about scholarships, grants, and loans. The food is definitely not the best but it's definitely not the worst.

Philo has a lot of good students, but also a few kids that like to cause trouble. The teachers are overall good, although there are some that do not teach whatsoever and they made me have a bad experience. Philo high school offers post secondary classes at the high school which is nice because I can stay in the school that I’m used to and still get college credit.
The school has many resources available to them, but rarely uses them to better the students in meaningful ways. Sports seem to dominate here like many other schools, and more academic clubs and programs should be fostered.
