Plymouth-Whitemarsh Senior High School Reviews

All Categories
PWHS is a school with many opportunities, both for varied subjects and difficulty levels in class selection and for activities inside and outside school hours, from competing in competitions to raising money for charity. Raising money for club activities and charities is fully supported by PWHS. In addition, PWHS's five block schedule allows for a "bonus block" break in the middle of the day for in-school activities and gives students flexible class scheduling. Even though the school is undergoing renovations, every completed project has vastly improved the school (for example, the new cafeteria, which was finished in March of 2016, has plenty of variety in seating and cuisine). PWHS is a school that is very well-rounded in all aspects.
Review Plymouth-Whitemarsh Senior High School
I love Plymouth whitemarsh high school. The teachers are wonderful, and the students are great as well. They provide a lot of great tools to prepare us for college and provide us with great opportunities. I'm proud to call myself an alumni of this school!
Student leadership is very important at PW. When you get involved with a club you learn to take initiative and most clubs are entirely student run. It is so easy to start a club and it really teaches you how to manage your time and efforts. An amazing experience I had at PW was I was a part of Principal's Advisory Council. At these meetings we would meet with the principal and discuss issues at PW and how we could solve them. This also allowed me many other experiences like being in advertizing videos for the school, getting to tour the renovations and even looking at furniture for the school's new cafeteria!
