Plano East Senior High School Reviews

I was in the International Baccaulareate program. Most of the time, the teachers were unprepared and very lazy. Most learning comes from worksheets that can be easily found online. Food is awful. I have found plastic, hair, pieces of cloth and expired produce

Lastly, Plano East is known for having out dated text books. What I mean by outdated is that we usually have textbooks from around 2005 to 2008. No student in any class should be given a more then 4 year old textbook because the language is constantly changing. For me, I have a 2010 Chinese textbook! That means that the book was probably written in 2008 to 2009 and that the language used in the book is over 10 years old! Not wise.

In my opinion, Plano East Senior High School is a great place for high school students. The school offers an IB Program and has exceptional academics. This is due to the great teachers who enhance the educational experience. Furthermore, the high school has a variety of clubs from Computer Science to Fashion and more. Similarly, there are many sports like tennis, soccer, football, volleyball, and others. PESH, as the school is commonly called, is a diverse environment as well with students from different ethnic groups, contributing to its diversification.
Upperclassmen are given the privilege of eating lunch off-campus while lowerclassmen are restricted to the campus. However, the cafeteria's food is above average and there are many great locations to eat. PESH's long chain of buildings encompass a large pond with fountains, serving as a scenic lunch spot. Facilities like the library and lunch-time tutorials are also open. Overall, I think that Plano East is a great school to attend.
I have just finished my junior year at Plano East and am very excited to start my senior year. My experience has been overall very positive, due to encouraging teachers, challenging coursework, and a pleasant campus. But, Plano East, like every other high school, has its downsides. Roughly three thousand students attend my school so hallways are always very cowded, thus making it a challenge to cross the campus during our short passing periods so I can get to class on time. Also, many teachers do not care for the students at all and it's obvious that they only teach for a paycheck. But, Plano East is a very lovely school that I enjoy attending.
