I absolutely love the experience given to me at Plano East Senior High. Especially being an african american female student at the school, I feel like I belong and very welcomed. The staff could not be any better, and the students create an environment where people feel as if they can be themselves. Yes, we have our ups and downs, our good days and bad days, but no matter what, the student body rises through the obstacle together as a whole. Despite race, religion, culture, etc., everyone knows what is right and we can without abandoning our morals, or beliefs, we overcome challenges as one student body, maintaining our dignity and character. You know what they say...winning with class!
Review Plano East Senior High School
Plano! Plano! East! East! Plano East was like a family! I never felt like I was going to school. Everyone is so nice, and in times of sadness we all support one another like a family. Everyone had a unique personality, which is what made each student very different, yet somehow we were all in this together. With some student, we have been in this together since elementary school.
My teachers at Plano East, are the best because they'll sit with you and teach you until you understand the problem and then watch over you work one out to see if you still need help. We do pop quiz and test very often! If you do your homework you'll do great! ALL of my teachers are willing to communicate if needed to stay after or arrive early to school for tutorials. My teachers say they love their job-not even caring about the pay. They love to spread knowledge to young and our future innovators. PLANO ISD. Has yet the best teaching staff in the nation. I love my school and I couldn't have asked for a better school of teachers.
