I would like for the curriculum to be based more on college prep. I would like to see WCHS actually prepare the students for college instead of working at minimum-wage jobs. There should be classes for students who enjoy hands-on tasks such as workshop. There should be classes who enjoy theatre, dance, drama, etc. There should be more freedom for students who exemplify good behavior. Students with excellent behavior and grades should be allowed time to leave campus during break periods. Instead, students are treated like fourth-graders under lockdown. There is a lot of improvements that could and should be made at WCHS.

The environment is very friendly around our school. I, honestly love the fact the teachers are trying their hardest to get every an education. The only problem I think is really holding the school back is ‘Dress-Code’. Many kids are having issues with dress code, but I see no problem with it. They feel as if the teachers are way strict on clothes instead of grades. But , me personally, i’m totally fine with it!
I am a 2017 graduate from Plymouth High. I had a very rich experience at PHS, I was active in my classes, in sports and extra curriculum activities. If you are willing to be positive and stay focus, your high school years will be productive and of quality. Go Vikes!
