For a Class B school, Plattsmouth offers a decent amount of courses, programs and activities. For the most part, teachers and Admin. are great to work with and try to help the student to the best of their ability. The coaches are great and care a lot about their athletes (in and outside the classroom). Parent support is wonderful in all areas (sports, Arts etc). Downfall: Academics! Not enough recognition given to students who excel & also not enough classes for those who want AP or Honors courses. Also, some sports are funded & supported more than others.

The teachers at Plattsmouth vary in difficulty and learning style. All the teachers I have had have been knowledgeable, and approachable. Each learning style is unique but every teacher adapts to help students. As everywhere there are exceptions, but overall my learning experience has been a positive one, however not necessarily challenging. Communication varies from teacher to teacher, but email is the simplest, most common form. Grading is fairly consistent within departments, but changes from department to department. One frustrating thing is the inconsistency in the concept of "retakes".
Plattsmouth High school has been a great experience so far. I have met a lot of great people and learned a lot from my teachers and students. Every teacher wants you to do great, so they prep you well. They dont't give up and help you no matter what the problem may be!
