I truly loved pleasant a lot, however there is a bullying problem that needs to be fixed. The music program is pretty good, but there needs to be more funding for it. The sports here are well loved but can sometimes be prioritized over other things that need more attention. I wish there was an orchestra program when I was in high school but that was one of the first things to go when budget cuts were made.

The scheduling process is easy, however it is easy to lose out on classes you want to take or to get locked out of classes. The guidance counselor is willing to cut a few students here and there to accommodate certain periods for other students. In classes, the material is vigorous and the homework/tests are nonstop. The work load easily becomes overbearing and you need to have known material before it was taught or it becomes tough to understand. There are very few options for class, because almost all of the advanced classes are scheduled in the same few periods, forcing kids to seek PSEO or off-campus classes to fill a schedule.
This school is going downhill. The staff are getting antsy, the building itself is falling to pieces (50 years old and very few renovations), it's always a freezing temperature, and the new administration is in constant fights with the student body.
