I enjoyed my time at Pleasant Grove High School! There were definitely teachers and experiences that weren't perfect, but overall, the classes were good. There was a lot of school spirit, and the administration and student council planned fun activities to be involved in. I'd say my least favorite subject was English; I had a teacher I didn't like all 3 years at this school. I didn't mesh well with their learning styles, and one teacher had a back surgery and was gone for most of the year. I still felt like I learned the material in my English classes though, and I finished out with overall good grades.

I transferred to Pleasant Grove High School only 3 weeks ago at the start of this school year but I already love it! Every teacher, student, and faculty member, I have run into so far have all been incredibly kind and helpful. Their music programs are the best out of any others I have participated in, every single teacher cares about each of their students and strive to help them succeed. The student body well represents who we are as a school and as individual students. Pleasant Grove High School is my favorite school I have attended yet and I can't wait to see what the next two years at PG will bring to me!
I graduated from PGHS happily! The students aren't always the smartest and they are probably my least favorite part of my experience there. But the amazing teachers, the broad variety of classes, and the excellent faculty made for an incredible learning experience. I attended a College Preparatory school for three years and it didn't even hold a candle to PGHS. I developed a love of learning there, and thanks to this school I am excited and prepared to continue into College.
