Plymouth-Whitemarsh Senior High School Reviews
PW has a lot of activities and ways to get involved! Any student can make a club that they are interested in, and so there are lots of options. PW also has some wonderful teachers and many options for classes. There are AP courses offered in many subjects! The principal - Dr. Bacani - is attentive and cares about the students. I had a great experience at PW and feel that the school offered many opportunities that prepared me for college.
Plymouth Whitemarsh is just like a normal high school. There are good lessons taught by great teachers. The environment of the school is different wherever you are. In the science wing, it seems like a hospital; it's damp, grey, and creepily quiet. In the D wing, the newly renovated classrooms allow for a good balance of focusness and fun. There is a good variety of classes and activities, though students are very limited when it comes to time when passing between classes. PW's students are diverse in both nationalities and personalities. Most student at PW are caring and compassionate, but there are some that don't care about that stuff and only care about tearing people down. At PW, there is a large amount of students in honors classes, which makes it hard for those not in honors classes because they are looked down upon and are pressured to feel insecure about their academic status. Though most of PW is great, there is need for improvement.
PW pushes their students to do their best, but without consideration of their mental health. Teachers regularly assign multiple hours of homework, and each student has 5 classes. The school holds no pep rallies or other spirit events. In addition, the students have many cliques, and the school does nothing to promote inclusion. There are some teachers who should be fired for incompetence, yet the school allows them to continue to teach. Although the facilities are new, they are bland and have no color, so the school resembles a hospital. There needs to be more communication between the school, parents, and students; no one is ever truly aware of what is happening.
