There is a big population of Hispanic students. They often feel like second class citizens when things go wrong. Everyone loves them when they are doing great with sports or academically, but if something comes up, they are attacked. For example a white female sent inappropriate pictures of herself to Hispanic boys. The boys were punished she was not. They threatened the boys parents with a criminal record if they refused to allow the school to put the boys in ISS, even the boys who did not disseminate the pictures when they were received via text. Peer pressure is bad as well. Students have been caught handing out and taking pills.

Teachers request parent involvement but there is no PTA. There is a guidance counselor for HS who is not usually available for middle school students. There is a complete lack of college prep resources. The students are not given information about college at all. Technology is excellent. The students "rent" an apple laptop. However, the tech person is often unavailable to fix students computers when there is a problem.
There are not any organizations for Jr. High. Plains has sports and UIL. However, government organizations, Jr. High Student Councils, Reading Clubs would all be great assets for Jr. High students.
