Pleasant Plains High School Reviews
My experience at Pleasant Plains High school on scale of 1-10 would be a 6. I had just an ok high school career and liked most of the teachers. I was involved in several sports while in attendance there. I think that i would say the experience could have been better if certain issues were better disciplined. Bullying is an ongoing issue everywhere. I was a-kid that was bullied. It is hard to stay focused and excel in all things when you feel low and unaccepted by your peers. Also, when telling a teacher or administrator and nothing is done about it because of who certain kids are. Its an ongoing issue that I am not sure how to solve if all kids are not treated the same way and receive the same discipline. If all kids are not subject to the same standards, how can there ever be justice and a no-bullying policy? It is an ongoing issue at all schools and needs to stop.
The new updates to the school are very nice and promote a productive learning environment. A small amount of the teachers care deeply about promoting a fun, educational environment, and care about making sure students understand the curriculum. There is very little diversity. The school is safe and there is a decent amount of student involvement in school activities, academic and athletic. Also, the food is better than average and there are many options.
Pretty meh. The food is descent enough and the new additions to the building are nice. Some teachers are good, some are meh. Also a very prviledged school that enables laziness. Lot of white farm boys, and no real diversity. Most students are narrow-minded and only care about doing drugs or other stuff.
