I had a pretty good experience at Plum High School. Most of the teachers were friendly and truly cared about their jobs. They were there for you if you needed some extra help which was nice. I liked the senior project of job shadowing and I hope they continue this. It exposed me to the working world at an early age and I appreciate that!

Plum Senior High School has effectively prepared me for college by offering a multitude of college-in-high school and AP classes. However, the lack of school enthusiasm of the students and the lack of sufficient resources in the district are unfortunate aspects of the school that should eventually change.
I feel that we should have a college review session earlier in our Junior year. We should also have a training course in how to use Naviance. We all received chrome books this year which was great. Parents are always involved in providing for us and helping with sports and clubs. The food service is very good and the overall choice of classes you can take are above average. Plum has been in the news lately for negative teacher problems but I have had a good experience with all areas of the district. I would recommend Plum for an excellent education.
