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!
Plantation High School is a very good school. There is something for everyone, the teachers care about the students, and they make sure that you remain on the right track. The only thing I think that should change is having kids be able to order food and have it be delivered , or having a family member bring them food. I think that it is unfair that the administrators take the food away from the kids, especially since it their money that bought the food, and that they're hungry. But, overall I love this school, the teachers, and the wonderful help that I receive whenever I'm struggling in my school work.
