My overall experience with plantation high school has been one with highs and lows like a roller coaster. In my freshman year I was a new student on reassignment, unfamiliar with the area and I felt like a small fish and a HUGE pond! The campus was so big and I have come to appreciate this because it allows me to get my steps in when going from one class to the next. The staff were nice enough and I have come to realize it’s up to you to make the best out of your high school because there’s no such thing as a perfect one. With this mindset I’m giving my school four stars because I’ve enjoyed my time here and one day I hope to return as a AP teacher one day.

Plantation High is seriously amazing! I’ve live pretty close to it since I was in elementary. I was always afraid of the big-looking school. I totally regret it, I am enjoying it a lot! As a junior I’ve seen some stuff I don’t like though, too many fights. But the cool security guards handle them quickly. Other than that the fun activities the teachers allow us to do and big events like homecoming was the best! I wanna graduate here!
My experience and what I like the most about Plantation High School is the teachers, and the great influences they’ve given me. Plantation High School is a school with a great and understanding teachers who will take time out of their day to help you out in your studies or in outside of school troubles. My experience there has given me a wide view of what my life will become in the future and given me exposure to new things that I haven’t experienced before, such as: events, field trips, the cooking teachers cooking, and the different type of teaching strategies every teacher has. Plantation High School May have its ups and downs but it’s a school with that can give you memories to cherish, with people that help make your life better.I don’t know if everyone have or had the same experience as I did last year but I hope the new students that decides to come enjoy it as I did.
