Plains ISD may seem like any other ordinary small town school, but it is the exact opposite. In the past couple of years we have undergone many changes: new teachers, new board members, and even a new building. But throughout all of this the focus remained on the students and our education. Many of us thought that while the board was busy making executive decisions, our education would suffer from lack of attention. However, much to our surprise, the teachers became our greatest allies and helped us stay on top of all our studies. Other than the education, the best part of Plains ISD is the sense of togetherness. If one of us goes down, every single person helps them get back up. The loyalty and support given by the amazing staff and students is astounding. As a senior, I am fully prepared to head to college and thrive both academically and socially thanks to Plains ISD.

When I first came to this school, I hated it. The bullying in this school is horrible and not just by the students but also by the teachers. Some of the teachers are great and some have the saying that I don't care if you pass or not I will still have a job. But I can say this, because of what I have had to endure from this school it has driven me to be the best I can be and no matter what the situation may be to always treat people with respect. The experience at this school has driven me harder to graduate early and to get a jump on my college career.
Our girl's basketball team recently won the Texas 1A-D1 Championship, there is a new gym being built for next year, the volleyball program has gone farther in the playoffs this year than in recent years, and all sports are doing quite well. The small community of Plains Tx has been a great support of Cowboy/Cowgirl Athletics.
