To begin, PCHS is the cleanest school in the district- home of the ratters! Not only does this school have the most delicious cuisine in all of Florida, but it is ALWAYS served with a smile as well. If you're a student athlete at this school, get ready to be treated like royalty! You can walk around the school at any hour of the school day, be borderline passing all of your classes, and face little to no consequences for your actions (especially if you play football)! Oh yeah, and lets not forget that your last name means everything at this place. If you are lucky enough to be in this group of white, uh I mean BRIGHT group of people (typo) then you pretty much run the show here. P-C-H-S!
Plant City High School has a wonderful environment were students are involved with events (like Black History Month, PRIDE day, etc.) and the community. The school faculty is great and cares for the students and their future. The teachers who work their are very inspirational and make a great impact on students lives by going beyond their pay. The sport program is great however, could be better if we had a better budget- the football team gets more than the track. But other than that Plant City is a great school!
