The people at PHS keep going to school interesting and the hall monitors and most teachers make close connections with their students to make class enjoyable. However, there are still teachers that do not know how to teach properly. Although those teachers did not last more than a year, they still robbed many students of a credit by not being terminated sooner.

Plano High School has a very wide range of courses to choose from. They have a wide range of classes for the average student but also have a wide range for students who excel at academics. The staff are very well trained in the course work and are always available to help students out. There are many opportunities for extra-curricular activities, with either sports, service hours in the community, clubs. Overall, its a very well rounded school.
I have learned a lot during my time at Plano High School. It has been an adventure and while there have been some bad times, it was overall a good time. I like most of the teachers and how involved they are with the students because it makes me learn more and feel apart of the class. I would like to see more involvement with the student body because it would strengthen the unity of the school and teach kids more than just academics.
