To put it very short and so that I don’t have to write a full essay on the amount of problems with this school; not everyone here is bad and the facilities are very nice, but it is very apparent that a political agenda is being forced upon the kids at this school. If you don’t support politics in schools, social justice, political correctness, or modern day left leaning ideologies, then I highly recommend you don’t attend this school or any public school in the “metro” area of Kansas City. It doesn’t help that it seems a lot of the time that the staff is somewhat careless and just want to go home, and that this school is rampant with and supports the sickening trends and rap culture that is popular today and introducing horrible charactistics into today’s youth.

My overall experience at Platte County has been truly unforgettable! My favorite times of the year are home football games where the whole student sections is buzzing and just having the time of our lives cheering on our boys in orange in black. All seasons for choir, many concerts and holiday tour, singing around town and in the spring going to contest, always receiving excellent scores. I will never forget special bonds I have made with my peers and faculty. Everyone is so connected in one way or another and if I could do high school all over again I definitely would still choose PC over any other school.
It's a great place to be and with a lots of learning opportunities. All sports teams, which include: Football, Cross Country, Track, Golf, Volleyball, Swim, Basketball, Softball, Baseball, Tennis, Soccer, Archery, and Wrestling, have awesome coaches and all athletes are given the best opportunities to succeed. We also have an amazing Fine Arts program including Choir, Band, Theater, and Art. All of these programs have won many titles and awards plus is a fun and safe environment to be in.
