The staff at Pleasant Hill High are super nice to students, and the office staff have proven to be very attentive to parent concerns (for example: I had broken a bone on a school trip, and the principal would take notes in regards to my mother's concerns about how teachers handle accidents).

Throughout my almost four years of high school, there have been many great things and some not so great things. Like any other school, Pleasant Hill High School is trying their hardest to make sure we are prepared for college/real life. The school offers as many dual credit class as they can, but being from a small town and school district, we are limited. On the down side, there will always be the occasional drug bust or someone's carrying a knife scare, but what school doesn't have those? The only real downside is that the teachers are not provided with enough information to really teach. They do the best with what they have, but I think that our curriculum will always be behind.
The teachers are great. It's the curriculum that sucks. The teachers are not given enough information on some subjects and honestly, aren't given the most effective ways of teaching the subject. The teachers are there to help you about eighty percent of the time, which is nice. I think they understand that some subjects are hard to grasp and that's also their job to help us out. Great teachers, sucky curriculum.
