Placerita Junior High School Reviews

2 reviews
I really loved the teachers at PJHS. Junior high years are the years I remember most fondly, and it was in large part because of them. While the dress code did feel strict at times, it wasn’t ever a huge detriment and, if it feels that bad, it’s only a two-year school. The school was very open to various personal situations and did their best to make accommodations. The faculty and administration were friendly, and the campus was open and spacious. They renovated the fields after I left, and they look nice from the outside! Its nickname of “Trasherita” is not true in the slightest.
