Growing up in Plainfield and having to go to Plainfield High School because you did not get accepted anywhere else, was hard. All your friends change because they found someone better or your interests never matched theirs. Its 2018 and we all know school shooting is a thing. My highschool had a kid that got expelled because he threatened the school and had guns in his home, I remember seeing this email that said ' DO NOT LET THIS KID IN' and all I could think to myself was 'oh my gosh, this is it", nothing ever happened but still. There isn't one girl security guard here, and personally I think we need one. Guys aren't the only ones picking fights in the bathrooms.

The four years that I have spent at Plainfield High School have been well. The atmosphere is pretty great, meaning people can talk to anyone. Students are friendly towards each other and have the ability to speak their minds. I am lucky to have a great group of friends around me. We all help each other through the classes we take and just supporting one and another. The faculty at Plainfield is great. The AP teachers are tremendous. The more advanced you get in high school, the better academic teachers are received. For me, I got to take all the classes I wanted when entering high school. I honestly feel like I am learning something from my classes. For the past two years, I have been with the same group of kids for my AP classes, to the extent where we have all became comfortable with each other. Due to this, and the amazing teachers of these classes, I really do want to learn.
I attended Plainfield High School before the new high school was built. The school that I attended was mostly demolished except for the original historic portion, which still stands seperate from the new facility. Overall the administration and staff are very supporting. The curriculum is well suited for college prep and the school has good resources.
