Point Pleasant High School has an wonderful staff, the counselors are always willing to work with you and put you in the classes you need to succeed. Most of the teachers are well trained and know how to teach students, even those who have no interest in said teacher's subject. All of the sports activities are so well organized, even the band (which is my "sport"). It is over all a fantastic experience!

My experience at Point Pleasant High School was wonderful! However, you definitely get out what you put in. By this, I mean that the harder you work at classes the more you will learn and the better you will do. This also applies to the programs that they have at the school. If you do not participate within them you will not understand how they create a difference in your life. Therefore, I would say that my future has been increasingly successful all thanks to the teachers that surrounded me throughout my high school years as they were all extremely helpful and cared for my education just as much as I did. Being in College, many still message to ask how I am doing and offer me assistance in my studies when needed. Therefore, I would conclude that Point Pleasant Highschool attributed greatly to my academic and athletic performances and I would not be where I am now if it were not for the great teachers and administration.
The environment is okay, not the best but not the worst. The administration is sub-par, but the counselors are beyond terrible. I never received any help from the counselors here, and I am not sure if anyone that has attended here has. Although the consolers will not give you any assistance, there are some teachers that have your best intention at heart. While there are some teachers that make it very obvious that that do not care about their students, the ones who do care will help you to the best of their abilities. There are some very caring people in this school.
