My overall experience at Plainview-Elgin-Millville High School was very good. There is not many things I would want to change about the school. One of my favorite things about PEM was the size. I loved being able to get to know each one of my teachers and peers. The involvement of the teachers was huge. They would go above and beyond to make sure we had what we needed to succeed. PEM was more than just academics, I was given a well rounded education that allowed me to succeed greatly. I also enjoyed how involved our school was with the community. Being a part of Minnesota Honor Society showed me how much our school appreciates the surrounding communities. Student Council was one of my favorite activities that I participated in. I loved the group of people and the work that we did together. Student Council allowed me to be a part of many events and activities. Between the groups and activities I participated in, I stayed busy and very much enjoyed my 4 years of highschool at PEM.

Plainview-Elgin-Millville is an exceptional high school. The staff and teachers are excellent and care about student success. The state of the main building is average and renovation could prove to be beneficial. Certain rooms in the building itself as well as various pieces of equipment are in poor condition. However, the community is working on updating the areas of the high school in need of improvement.
Very caring teachers who are always willing to help you. The cafeteria food isn’t very good. Like a lot of high schools, the main emphasis for extracurricular is athletics, and the arts don’t get as much appreciation.
