At Plymouth High School, there is a lack of resources, academics, teachers and college readiness. The lack of resources means that students cannot learn different things that will prepare them for the real world. Teachers teach students on a middle school level, which also pushes the student back from being on a college level. Plymouth High School, mainly worries about the wrong things instead of encouraging students to challenge themselves. However, what I like about Plymouth High School are the people. Many people there are kind and helpful. The teachers there are also friendly and can be a role in a students life.
I would like for the curriculum to be based more on college prep. I would like to see WCHS actually prepare the students for college instead of working at minimum-wage jobs. There should be classes for students who enjoy hands-on tasks such as workshop. There should be classes who enjoy theatre, dance, drama, etc. There should be more freedom for students who exemplify good behavior. Students with excellent behavior and grades should be allowed time to leave campus during break periods. Instead, students are treated like fourth-graders under lockdown. There is a lot of improvements that could and should be made at WCHS.
The environment is very friendly around our school. I, honestly love the fact the teachers are trying their hardest to get every an education. The only problem I think is really holding the school back is ‘Dress-Code’. Many kids are having issues with dress code, but I see no problem with it. They feel as if the teachers are way strict on clothes instead of grades. But , me personally, i’m totally fine with it!
