PJHS isn't exactly the best school. It all depends on who you are. Bullying is not acknowledged, security is non- existent, and the gymnasium has mold on the ceilings with "insulation" that is constantly falling from the ceiling. The teachers are rude, and racist. If you report bullying, no measures are taken. Although people may say otherwise drug dealing takes place almost everyday and is rarely caught.

Currently a senior in high school, my experience has been amazing. This school has seen me grow through my awkward teen phases. In all, this school is great and I recommend it.
I wouldn't choose this school again, because like some schools: color matters, a lot.
