What I like about Pleasant Grove High school is the well funded departments such as the arts, technology, and sports. With these programs being well funded it gives the teachers and student the ability to be learn creatively and excel. They also invest in well qualified teachers who know what they are teaching and are passionate about their jobs. Lastly, they care about the safety by having campus police that constantly patrol the campus.

High Striving, but low funded. Students are typically viewed as exclusive, or privileged, but all backgrounds are represented.
Pleasant Grove High School gives us many opportunities in furthering our education. They help us connect with our community by doing service projects and holding community wide events such as Fields of Faith. Through my years of high school all of my teachers have always put their students first. They believe that by the end of high school we should be well prepared for college. My school also has many clubs and organizations. I am currently the HOSA Club President and I have enjoyed getting the chance to understand the views of the medical field. One experience I loved at my school was going to football games and seeing the student section packed and the bleachers filled with cheering fans. From Colorguard Captain to band nerd, a PG Hawk is who I am and I would do it all over again.
