I like the availability for students to talk to teachers on a daily basis, though I do not like how much the school stresses sporting events and looks down on the students who do not attend.
My experience at Plainfield High School was beyond exceptional. The teachers and administration in general want everyone to succeed and provide a safe space in which we all do. Each teacher truly becomes your friend and is willing to do the extra practice with you outside the classroom in order for you to understand the material. Along with the classroom aspect of Plainfield High School, the athletic part has a very encouraging atmosphere in which many athletes come out ready to play in college and also many tight friendships are formed through this program. Plainfield High School prepares you for not only college, but the future as a whole.
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!

I have had a wonderful experience at Plainfield High School. The teachers are very caring and want you to actually succeed academically. The counselors also keep you on track by having visits. Which I find very helpful.
I truly enjoy my time at Plainfield High School. It has been a very fun four years where I have learned a lot, met many new people, and made numerous memories. The teachers have been great, but the only thing I would change is the cafeteria food. It could be better.
The only qualms i have about the school is that there are a couple teachers who do not teach to the best of their ability and have failed multiple students for the teachers own incompetence and students cannot complain about these teachers to get change as it is against our school policies and no one listens to us in this way.
My favorite thing about Plainfield High School is the community. Although there are countless students and an abundance of teachers, I have enjoyed getting to know each that I can. From sports teams to clubs to service opportunities and other after school activities, my high school has always encouraged building relationships both inside and outside of the school walls. To build off this, I have appreciated all the ways to get involved within the school and the Plainfield community. Within the last four years, I have joined a variety of clubs along with the tennis team which have together taught me so many life skills and habits while also allowing me to develop new friendships. Plainfield High School's logo is "bringing joy to learning" and I wholeheartedly believe they do so in amazing ways.
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 Highschool is a great school environment. All of the teachers work really well with the students and prepare them for college.
I love the school culture their it’s semi-professional and helps transition the students to adulthood and I would change the band room it’s quite small for our size of a band
What I liked about Plainfield High School was the boundaries I was able to step out of and the opportunities on the classes I have taken, experiences I have witnessed and felt will never leave me and I hope the mistakes I have learned the hard way won’t be made again.
Plainfield High School is a truly great choice when making a very important decision about your child's future. I graduated from Plainfield High School in 2016 and I fell as if I was very well prepared for college after my time there. The teachers at Plainfield truly care about their students and they make it their mission and their goal to let every student keep up in the classroom. I feel as if my time at this school prepared me for the real world and for the world of college as well as it possibly could have.
I am currently a senior at PHS and I have loved being a student here. The staff is excellent, and the administrators are friendly. I have had so many opportunities both in the classroom and outside of it.
Going to Plainfield High School was one of the best experiences I've ever had. I not only had amazing support with the ever caring students but also faculty. To this day, I know I can still reach out to previous teachers I had for help and advice and I can also go to peers that I had before, even if I didn't talk to them in school. The only thing I would change is to have more opportunities for everyone, even though they do an amazing job at it already.
It’s the best school I ever had im Palestinian I never went to school like this in my country so it’s the greatest thing I ever had thank you guys for giving my chance to be in your beautiful school and thanks for everyone help me to learn some English exactly ( Ms,Mills ) she’s the best teacher ever ! .

I learned alot at PHS, and it is a diverse school. They have many academic options and extra circular activies. They have a lot of sports. The only thing that I would change is the way they treat non-sport activities. If it's not sports, it doesn't matter as much.
I'd like for the teachers to be more invested with students. I feel that overall I had a positive experience at Plainfield High School. I wish the student body was closer to each other.

They have a very good educational program. There are lots of opportunities for advanced classes, which is great. However, there were only clubs for city folks. I would have liked to have seen some clubs for country kids like fishing or shooting clubs.
Plainfield High School was an excellent school to attend. Absolutely one of the best public schools I have ever encountered.
A ton of bullying, teachers don't do their job to stop it. The principal and staffing are wonderful, love you guys. But the counseling at the school sucks. I have helped more kids than the person in charge of talking and helping the kids. But nice school, people can be pricks. But bullying is definitely a problem, been bullied for about 3 years now and still nothing done. Gave up and now helping others
