The teachers and staff at Pullman High School are great! However, there are way too few personal elective choices offered. The high school considers World Language a personal choice elective, but most colleges prefer 3 years of Language, so it is not really a personal choice. They should offer at least one more personal elective choice. It would be a wonderful addition to variety and career preparation. In addition, the high school should allow doing sports for fitness credits again. Taking a PE class is not helpful at all. Most students are already involved in a school sport. Most students choose to do a sport because they really like it. However, activities that students dislike are forced upon them in PE class that could have been replaced by a personal elective choice! Doing PE for one semester for Freshman year is plausible, but doing it for a whole another year is not quite as preferable. In short, there are not many personal choice options at this high school.
Overall, I thought this was a great school to attend. While not perfect, which is impossible given the extreme differences in desires, I felt the school had a good curriculum overall. The students there have been hit or miss in relation to how they treat each other as well as faculty and staff. While school lunches were average in my book, the snack bar had pretty decent cookies. The different elective, art, and technical skill classes provided at the school are amazing from what I experienced. I am sure you will find teachers that just make your day (of course some who may ruin it, but that’ll depend on your personality and attitude, everyone is different). My main complaint had to do with the school counselors assigned to each student. Given the student to counselor ratio, I’m sure they’re swamped with work. However I have come across some mishaps with the process, and you mainly end up having to plan stuff (like college options, scholarships, classes to take) yourself.
My experience with Pullman High School has been excellent. The facility is essentially brand-new, having finished its reconstruction three years ago. PHS is strong academically, offering many challenging AP-level courses and adding more each year. If an advanced class isn't offered at the high school, students often make use of the online BYU class system (unfortunately, flawed and expensive) or Running Start through our local Washington State University. As for the school's proximity to WSU, the school is consequently very diverse and well supplied with field trips and internship opportunities. Because the permanent population is more involved in education, PHS is generously funded and has a top-notch performing arts program. The teachers are engaging and friendly people who go out of their way to encourage extra-curricular involvement in the myriad of school clubs and sports, which consistently make it to regional and state-level competitions if they're competitive in nature.
