Student support and potential. That’s two major thing that I love about Plaquemine Senior High School. We have extremely talented band members, dancers, and atheletes. The Friday night lights, parades, and school pep rally’s is what I’ll miss most. One thing that should be changed; in my opinion, is the school food and the academic opportunities available to students! We should have college tours, career days, etc. things not just centered around band, dance, and sports! Challenge the students!

Plaquemine High School is a moderately intelligent high school. Being part of their student body for 6 years has shaped me into a brilliant, friendly, and interactive individual, but this year, my last year in high school, Plaquemine High has impacted my life by revealing to me the changes that can be made to help students like me in the future. If I, or anyone else attending Plaquemine High School, wants to further their education knowing what's in store, Plaquemine High should better the education given to the students by getting students college ready and focus in the classroom.
Plaquemine Senior High School is full of pride, energy, and, most importantly, compassion. The teachers and administrators are more invested in their students' lives than their own. The staff constantly works towards making sure the students are growing in not only their intellect, but also themselves as people. There is also a fair amount of diversity in the courses you can take as well as the personalities of the students. Here, you are not short of a chance to gain experience outside of the classroom. There are multiple programs and courses you can take that will certify you to work right out of highschool if college isn't your goal. The "B average" label of the school simply cannot compare to the enriching highschool experience you would have here. While the label can be a downfall, the school is always evolving to become a place you can surely be proud to attend. I look forward to seeing the progression of the school in the next few years.
