Plainview School Reviews
Over the years, Plainview has felt like a home to me. Almost all the teachers are kind and would do anything for their students. One downfall is that this school puts sports over academics. They constantly move in new teachers for the purpose of "coaching" sports and most of these new teachers care nothing for academics and only focus on their own sports team. Nothing against these teachers because they are great too, I just wish we would focus on the more important things like our futures and college other than a sport that will only last through high school and maybe college.
What I LOVED about Plainview? Everything! I started attending Plainview in the 4th grade, and my outlook about school started to change. I found the teachers to be so nice, caring, and most of all, wanting to teach me new things. During my junior high & high school years there were changes as to who was principle, and all just seemed to get better with every year. Plainview High School and the staff is the main reason I know I can succeed in college. I would not change anything
I have been going to Plainview since the third grade and didn't quite enjoy it, being there at first. I had moved from a Fort Payne and I didn't feel like I quite fit in, and being bullied from this one kid didn't help much. Over time as I grew and matured along with my bully, I began to enjoy this school more and more. I realized how nice and friendly everyone was, and I helped to show the same kindness to others that moved to Plainview, and know that they can have a good experience and grow as a person just as I had. Showing kindness to others in return, was something that Plainview has taught me to do, and that it is important to treat others just as you want to be treated.
