Plymouth-Whitemarsh Senior High School Reviews

Overall, I've had a very good experience at Plymouth Whitemarsh. The course selection is amazing, as well as many of the professors that teach them. The cafeteria is beautiful, a new gym has just been put in, and the numbers of clubs/activities to join is through the roof! However, my school could do a better job at helping kids that are a little less privileged than others. I have had some trouble handing in assignments due to not having a printer and at certain times not having internet access at all, and have received bad grades due to lateness despite explanations I gave about my situation. The AVID program I'm a part of is a great way for students to get help, but informing all teachers of individual people who need an extra helping hand would go a long way. Several teachers have helped me though, even going as far as to purchase me another book-bag when mine was falling apart. This shows, though is has imperfections, PW is a great school for any student's secondary education.

Plymouth Whitemarsh High School is, in layman's terms, an experience. The school is mostly made up of white, middle-class, suburban kids, and cliques are common, but they don't tend to cause much bullying or drama. The teachers are all either loved or hated, and the security guards are surprisingly good at their jobs and are personable and friendly with the kids. The guidance counselors are, sadly, only really good for course selection. Due to the sheer number of students in the school, it's hard for them to focus on one kid at a time. If your child does not do well with big groups of people and demanding courses, PW is not the place for them. Otherwise, it's a normal experience. You come to learn some things, make a friend or two, and then you graduate and most likely stay in Pennsylvanian suburbia for your college career and later future. If that's what you're looking for, then congrats, you found it.
Plymouth Whitemarsh is an amazing school with friendly and helpful staff. Any time a student needs help with any of their classes they can find help around any corner. PW strives to top quality resources to their students and I believe that they have achieved that goal and has exceeded further beyond it. Apart from my experiences in band class, there wasn't a single thing about the school that I didn't enjoy. There are enough sports and clubs for everyone to find their home somewhere in the school. The bond between students and teachers is something that will last through generations.
