Platte Canyon High School Reviews
I liked the caring approach my school took to my learning, and how they genuinely cared about me and the things i do in the classroom. I encourage others to go to this school for their athletics and the time they put into each student to pass with honors.
Platte Canyon is a very small school. The teachers in this school do a great job of giving 1 on 1 attention to further education.
Platte Canyon is an excellent school with staff who are completely dedicated to furthering the knowledge of the students and their student's well being. When a member of the student body died last year, the school made sure the students had everything they needed in the way of grieving. Students were given time to see counselors provided by the school, food, water, and anything else they might have needed to help heal from the loss of a dear friend. In this, Platte Canyon staff showed how they aren't just concerned with their students learning, but also with their overall well being.
I love my high school because it is small. The teachers want to help their students, and will work extra hours to do so. The community works together is there are problems. Employees at the school care about the students' well being and education. Everyone is very friendly as well.
Platte Canyon is a fantastic, small school. The teachers are great and the staff all friendly. Here you get a rigorous academic education that will create create people of great character.
I would want to see more diversity and involvement with the student body in anything the school does.
Ap classes are offered, but not many classes are offered because it's such a small school.
It is a rural school with nearly all white students. Diversity isn't common, and being different is very hard. The kids have more racist views on life including closed mindedness. Sexual orientation is not varied either. The students that are involved are the same for every activity.
With standards being so high at this school, the students often need help and the teachers don't provide it. It requires a 70% to pass all classes instead of the usual 60%. Many students come here from other schools, and state that it is nearly 2-3 times as hard. The teachers are overall horrible. Often students move away after moving here because it is nearly impossible for the average person.
We have already had a school shooting at our school, yet no safety regulations have been put in place to make the environment feel safer and more secure to both inside or outside threats. Not to mention, our fire safety rules regulate that we walk in front of our school by a very popular highway where anyone could drive by and injure/kill mass amounts of students. There are only four functioning cameras by main doors which are not monitored majority of the time. Our nurse is shared between the 3 schools in the district, so health care is no often provided for. The staff is more interested in harassing the students as opposed to keeping them safe or providing an education. No efforts are put in to stop bullying either due to the prejudices of the teachers and staff.
We're very concerned with safety.
We have little funding and few options. But the activities we do have are run passionately and well. The students are very committed.
Overall, it's a small, tight school. Most of the teachers are incredibly passionate and influential. There are some issues at the school, but on the whole it's a genuinely positive environment.
There is always some sort of safety officer on guard at all times
There are some extracurricular activities; however, not many people are involved
The school is great for the people; however, there needs to be more activities for students.
Teachers generally care about students
