Excellent communication! The school is big enough to allow for an enjoyable high school experience, yet small enough that you don't get lost in the crowd. The school overall has great communication except with the guidance counselors. I wish that they communicated more with the seniors as well as the parents in regards to college preparation.

Throughout my four years at Plano High School, I have seen many changes within the administrators and their policies. This has made it very difficult on the students due to the ever changing rules and restrictions that make daily life more difficult. There is an extreme lack of communication within the staff and the student body. The teaching staff also changes dramatically every year. PHS is under staffed and ends up hiring teachers that don't know how to properly teach students certain materials. Thus the students are struggling to maintain good grades, as well as to properly understand the material. However, we are offered an array of resources and technology to help guide us in our education.
As my time while being a student at Plano High school was full of great teachers showing us knowledge is power and a family atmosphere throughout the school district. The classes really helped me prepare for college courses and increase my social skills with the help of the great staff there. Meanwhile, the school culture was a good chance to make friends of all types with a great diversity in the school this brought strength to the school being together as mostly everyone knew each other. The administrators really keep an eye on students to help them reach their full potential as they are becoming ready to graduate.
