At Platteville, I was able to advance myself by being in music, sports, and other clubs. I was allowed to prepare myself for collage and many other life experiences. Many of the teachers I had had a great understanding of their subject and really cared about their students. I felt that the education I received from Platteville High School was the best I could have ever received.

I enjoyed my time here. It was the kind of school where you could be involved in everything. I did track and cross country but was also in the musicals and model UN. The teachers were all great especially my French teacher, Liz Peters, who made me fall in love with the language and decide to minor in it at college.
Most of the teachers at Platteville High School genuinely care about their students and try to create relationships with almost every one of their students. They try and create a fun, interesting learning environment for their students, from making videos to giving scavenger hunts as to enhance their learning capacity on the topic being taught.
