Plum Senior High School was a great stepping stone from junior high into college level education. The mix of academics, social activities, and athletics provided me with an amazing high school experience. The teachers from ninth to twelfth grade have provided me with the knowledge I will need to further my education at the college level. They made sure that I understood the content that we were learning in class and truly cared about my success in high school and the future. I also had guidance counselors who placed me on the right path to start looking at colleges and figuring out what my future career will be. My experience at Plum Senior High School was extremely memorable due to the academic success I had as well as the social and athletic aspects.
