I loved plainview! The sports, the band, the clubs, the teachers, the staff, everything about it. In our county Plainview is know to be for “the rich kids” or “preppy kids” or “stuck up kids” if you ask anyone from the county that doesn’t attend Plainview. In reality that’s what makes Plainview so great. Everyone looks down on us and in that case it makes the whole school come together as one. We learn when we are little no other school can tolerate us and that just makes us form some type of special family bond. I knew when I was playing sports that the whole entire community always had my back no matter what and that’s just a feeling I will never forget.

I was at Plainview for 2 short years before I graduated and I wouldn’t give up the memories I made and people I met for anything in this world. While I was there softball went to state both years and the basketball won back-to-back state championships. The school spirit there is amazing and it’s not hard to get involved in anything. I was color guard captain in the marching band and the love and support the band as a whole got from the school and the community was amazing. Of course every school has things that they should work on, but I personally would not change a thing about Plainview School.
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.
