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.
I attended Plymouth Whitemarsh High School during the school's most recent renovation. Though the school kinda looks like an airport now, it is really nice to have upgraded facilities for my class and future students. It's popular among students to claim they hate their school, but lots of my peers truly acknowledge that it's a privilege to go to a nationally ranked high school with teachers care about their education--whether it's obvious to those students or not. The school offers extensive AP and honors classes, as well as options for other college-bound and struggling students. PW offers tons of clubs and activities, students just need to seek them. Sure, my high school faced the same bureaucratic pressure almost all institutions face, but it was definitely the only place I'd want to attend.
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.
