Plainview High School Reviews
Plainview High School is a very big high school with several student groups and organizations. They are a very good high school in the Plainview area. The school is very diverse and has some good teachers. I would like to see that the teachers are all trained on safety and bullying. The athletic program is good, however the student trainers don't have a stable athletic trainer to teach them. This means that students have to learn new techniques on how to help the student athletes each year. The students are allowed to choose their own schedules and they don't always have the right classes selected for each year. The band program is a very big and allows all students to participate. The Plainview High band is very well known because they have several number 1 scorings.
Most of the staff and faculty in PHS are very willing to help their students succeed and prepare for college. However, most of the students aren't willing to put in the effort and time to succeed. Most of the clubs aren't promoted enough for practically any incoming freshmen, or even upperclassmen, to even notice that they existed.
While attending Plainview High School i enjoyed the continues efforts made by the staff members to upkeep the school spirit while also encouraging us to attending a college of our choice. Although staff members encouraged us to pursue a high education when it came down to it there was no real guidance. Yes or course we had tons of meetings with college recruiters and millions of lectures on what all degrees are possible at varies colleges and universities but there was still many unanswered question such as "what to do if you get denied my FAFSA?", "How do I apply for scholarships?", "How do I find out if my credits will transfer to another school?". Anytime these questions were asked to any guidance counselor or administrator they would go unanswered and brushed off as though they were not important.
