PLHS offers many options for students that want to learn and value academics. I am impressed with the number of AP: and College Level courses that are available, and is one of the main reasons we attend this school. The academic tract is strong and has a healthy level of competition amongst students. Sports programs are of high quality, and offers a well rounded high school experience for those who participate.
I can't say enough horrible things about this school. First of all, my son struggles in math. There are no good math teachers. When my son asks the teacher a question they say look in the book. The book gives 1 example and that's it. He has had some good English teachers. My son is a senior this year and first day of school he doesn't have 3 classes because 3 teachers left the school. Now 3rd week of school and he still doesn't have 2 periods. I've been in constant contact with his counselor and the principal and no response. My son finally talks to his counselor this morning and she tells him that I wrote an offensive, threatening e-mail. I'm livid!! First she should tell my child this and 2nd when she doesn't respond after 20 e-mails I might have been a little angry. I still haven't heard from her. To make matters worst the principal hasn't gotten back to me either. If my son doesn't graduate because of lack of school response that will be horrible. I'm so mad at this school!!! Another thing is drugs are everywhere. Kids have tried to sell drugs to my son. The kids post themselves on istagram, snap chat doing drugs and they think it's cool. I don't see the school doing anything about it. The bullying is awful. Last year a kid was bullying my son for the first few months of school.
My son and I have been happy with PLHS. Students are friendly - bullying is NOT an issue at all. Counselors, teachers and administrators are doing as well as can be expected as their workloads are heavy. Parents need to be proactive and take the lead with their child's education and college planning. Thankfully the internet allows parents and students to get information and resources - gone are the days of being dependent on school counselors.
The school has very good teachers and the advanced classes are actually challenging.
