I loved my teachers at PEM they were always there for me when I needed them and always gave me good advice. Another thing I liked was the class size, my class is just over one hundred students. This made it supper easy to know everyone and have multiple friends! Their isn’t anything I would change about my high school!

I’m on my fourth year at Plainview-Elgin-Millville high school and I have had a great experience. The teachers and staff are outstanding and very helpful before and after school and they try their best to help every student to be the best they can possibly. I like going here because of the environment, all students are very nice and I feel no judgement while walking through the halls.
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.
