Pleasant Grove High School Reviews

My experience at Pleasant Grove High School has been my top favorite. There's just something about the atmosphere and the people there that makes me feel so comfortable and at home, like I've truly been a Spartan during all of my school years. However, there is no love without constructive criticism. As a student, there aren't many opportunities for aspiring astists, photographers, writers, etc. There should be more focus on the students' interests for future careers. Also, the students themselves need to participate in school functions and activities. The students are, of course, the heart of any school, and their lack of participation and enthusiasm can be a real letdown. So, while I love Pleasant Grove High with all my heart, there definitely needs to be improvement from both staff and students.

Pleasant Grove High School offers a wide range of activities and programs for me to experience. Such as art programs, honor society, FBLA, Bowling, Debate club, and other select areas of involvement. The teachers are certified, and is always prepared for any questions or concerns that a student may ask. Our principals have a great sense of strictness and understanding when it comes to their staff and fellow students. The Office administrators and counselors constantly updates the school on college opportunity's, and advice for a bright future. Overall, Pleasant Grove High School is a great place for a student to receive great education, and leave with wonderful momentum and knowledge of the outside world.
Pleasant Grove High School is where i spent my entire high school career. It is a a nice supportive community filled with wonderful people. It is a fairly large school with just around 500 students. It has many great teachers that have been there for many years, and they are great at their jobs. Although I have had my fair share of bad teachers, it doesn't take away from how great a school it is. The only bad thing about the school is that it does not have a plethora of elective to choose from like most other schools in the area. This is a great school overall though.
