It was a great school. Very diverse and full of oppurtunities for its students. I had good and bad teachers, but the good ones left a much larger impact than the bad ones. I have plently of happy memories from my four years in Plymouth-Canton. I just wish we didn't have to walk in the cold!

I liked how there were a lot of different clubs to join which made it easy to make new friends and just have a overall better high school experience. Another thing I liked about this school was the fact that it was basically like a college campus. Being like a campus allowed me to prepare for what college would be like. On top of this, the teachers were very motivating and kind. They knew how to teach content well and to the best of their ability. One thing that I would like to see change though is the parking system. I feel that students should be allowed to park wherever there first class is. This would help students to arrive to class on time a lot more than when they are assigned to a parking lot.
Salem Highschool, being a part of the PCEP school, is a school 0f +6500 highschoolers with three highschools. It may seem overweling at first, but the school really does prepare the students for a big university. It has good resources but its all up to the student to reach those oppurtunites. It is only as good as the student makes it. With such a big school system, it makes it kinda of difficult to make close friends due to the vast classes but students learn to make long connections with a big group of people rather than a few close people.
