Plantation High is said to have a bad reputation, but as a student, I beg to differ. The school offers a wide variety of subjects and now offers the Gifted Academy and has been offering the International Bacculaureate Diploma program as well. To expand on why exactly they have a bad reputation, there is said to be a lot of fights and delinquent behavior; but what school doesn’t have delinquent behavior? In my 4 years of going to school there, I have only witnessed one fight which happened to be a ‘cat fight’ with girls. The Academics are great at Plantation High with graduates going to University of Florida, Harvard University, Cornell University, Brown University, Boston University, Duke University, UC Irvine, and more. While the academics and teachers/staff at the school are amazing, the school spirit is basically nonexistent which I feel is rudimentary to a high school experience.

The teachers at Plantation High are what make the school great. Throughout the year I've had those special teachers who you'll never forget. The ones that teach life-skills and lessons that you will tell your kids. Also the IB, SO, and Honors programs provided are great. We also have great vocational programs such as business, tech, construction, and horticulture. Oh also some of my friends are in the different art programs including band, art, choir, and theatre. The school offeres an endless amount of extra curricular activities that are all different from athletic, to school oriented, to community service. The school is very good at allowing students to lead themselves. Overall some of the students are bad apples but it's still a great school in my opinion.
The school itself is fairly clique-y but everyone is friendly, especially if you're new or from a different country. The majority are migrants from the caribbean countries. The teachers do their job, but nothing more. You have to be able to work independently and focused if you want to pass. Some barely ever teach so you'd have to teach yourself and just ask them questions. The safety procedure sem a bit extreme though, since the Parkland shooting they've made it harder for you to leav class and use the bathroom and you need to have visible ID on you at all times or you could be fined $5 for a new one. The food is just enough so that you aren't starving, there are helthy options though.
