In the end, Plainfield South is a school that is clearly behind on learning and languishes in underfunding. I was so appalled at the facilities -- which were extremely dirty and old -- the disgusting food, and the administration's inability to enforce school policies.Many of my classmates were extremely inconsiderate and disrespectful, and many of my teachers were not passionate about their work and did poor jobs educating students. The environment is overall toxic, and the morale at Plainfield South is so bad that students -- and even teachers -- bemoan the school's lack of quality.Freshmen walking into this school are promised a sort of "college prep" experience that doesn't actually exist; the consolers end up being more problematic than useful, and the curriculum coddles students as opposed to exposing them to the real world. Students overall are given no guidance and -- to put it bluntly -- are put at a risk of having their futures permanently harmed due to the staff's incompetence.It's just all cringe-inducing. It's painfully obvious that the school doesn't actually provide "excellence" to its students. There's plenty of room for improvement at Plainfield South. I highly recommend freshmen to stay away from this school and go somewhere else.

let me get started with a few things here, and lets be grand about it. first off the sanitation. there is a couple places i would like to talk about. place number one, the field house, there is a variety of things to say about it, the locker rooms, the track and its floors are so dirty, such as mysterious substances on floors , wrappers , food , and just miscellaneous stuff on the floor. i will be making several parts to this review.

teachers are excellent, as well as communication. lots of opportunities, very few problems for a high school this size
