The administration at Priceville needs to treat every student equally. That’s the biggest change that needs to happen. The other changes aren’t that serious some of those would include better food and better and more reliable resources. Also better college preparation is an important aspect of high school that was absent at Priceville High School. Having said that there are some excellent teachers at Priceville who’s classes did prepare students for college level courses. Overall my experience with Priceville High School was a good one however, I would have preferred to be prepared for college instead of taking easy classes and breezing by with ease.

Priceville High is definitely making progress. They are providing more classes each year and are actively trying to make sure students get the best experience possible. However, I would like to see more college preparation and clubs.
The facilities are very nice. The teachers do their best to help prepare you for college. There is a variety of classes to choose from and many opportunities, such as, dual-enrollment. The staff do their best to make schedules that work well for everyone. The way problems are handled needs to be improved. ISS seems to be the way to solve everything, but that needs to be changed. Also, the new rules that are made up in the middle of the school year need to be done away with. They only work for about a week, and then everyone forgets about them. There is no point in making them in the first place.
