Some things that I definitely love about Plainfeild High School is how many different options that they offer! There are so many different course options that you are able to take, some that even most schools don't offer. They also have a very successful band that won Class B Marching Band and their drumline won WGI World Finals all last year. They have amazing equipment and staff that are always willing to help you! They even have three different show choir groups that are also amazing! They have a huge list of clubs of all kinds to join, too. They even have other foreign language options to take like German, French, and Spanish. The staff and kids are very kind and welcoming! I highly recommend anyone to Plainfield High School!

Plainfield High School is a great learning environment. The teachers are involved in the students lives and care about their success. The school offers many different clubs, games, sports, and other extra curricular activities! I would describe Plainfield High School as safe, encouraging, and a home to many devoted students.
Plainfield Community School Corporation is overall a great school system! Plainfield High School provides its students with great opportunities outside of school. The teachers are amazing and do everything in their abilities to provide their students with the best education possible. The sports at PHS are amazing and have great support through the community. The school does a great job preparing students for college starting as a Freshman and throughout high school until Senior year. The parents of students at PHS do a great job of getting involved in any way that they can. The parents of band/sports students do a great job at being at events and helping out anyway they can!
