I had 3 children graduate from Plant High. It was a great experience for all of them, they were happy attending, and they were well prepared for college. They all got accepted to many colleges of their choice and are very successful today! The only issue was that the school is old and needs additional renovations. It is overcrowded as well because everyone wants their kids to attend this excellent school. It's in great neighborhood. It is probably time to change Plant's boundaries once again or expand the school somehow .....although, the property is small, so it would take some serious planning to make that happen. Perhaps a 3-story parking garage, then use some of the parking area to create another building? If that is not possible, again, boundaries need to change.

It was a incredible experience! I truly believe Plant High School prepared me to excel in college. They surround you with teachers who truly care about your future and to teach you about the subject. Also, Plant High School has the best of the best students and you are always competing with them in education, sports, or art. I love my 4 years here and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I have made so many connections with friends and teachers. I think Mr. Bush (principal) and the administrators are welcoming and trying to start a relationship with the students and help them in their lives too.In all honesty, I don’t think Plant should anything. There’s a reason why we are 1 in our county for education and sports. I will always bleed that black and gold (school’s colors). “PLANT PLANT PLANT”!
Plant High School is a very well brought together school. Plant has a very well put together Administration as well as, l put study body. The student to teacher rations is 30-1, which makes the learning environment more excelling for those around you. Plant has a very high test passing rate as well as a 95% College readiness score. Within the school, you will become family to those around you. Now, it's not like your typical teen movie, that will force a certain highschool stereotype. But, the school will guide you into a belief that you are in a huge, loving, and caring family.
