Pleasant Grove High School Reviews

I have loved every moment spent at Pleasant Grove High School for many reasons. The culture is very welcoming at Pleasant Grove. As a transfer student my Junior year, I felt overwhelmingly welcome and accepted as a new student. Everyone including the administration made me feel like I was a great addition to the student body and would be valued greatly. My teachers strive to help me succeed and find the path I need to be on when I graduate High School to accomplish great things. With the environment being so kind it was not hard to find good friends with high standards that I fit in with. Everyone is your friend at Pleasant Grove High School, I am very proud to be a Viking!

I love the experience here! Mostly because it was the teachers that were helping students learn and generating high expectations that overall involved the whole school! I loved everything, but the school activities could have got more people involved.
There are many extracurricular opportunities at PGHS! we have many clubs which include HOSA, FFA, FCCLA, FBLA, latinos in action, gay-straight alliance, sandwich club, math club, and many, many more! Every student who joins a club is very committed and loves what they do and the various activities they put on. The clubs listed above are some of the most popular clubs at PGHS. All the clubs are fun but that opinion varies depending on the student and what their interests are. The administration is very involved with the various clubs. Every morning in the announcements, the clubs who have meetings are announced along with the activities they may be putting on at the time as well as the things they have accomplished. Most of PGHS's after-school activities are the clubs along with school dances and fundraisers. Many students are involved and are very engaged in whatever club they are involved in.
