I am a graduate of Plainview High School. Plainview constitutes a great environment for both students and staff. Under strict administration, while still allowing fun annual events, Plainview balances the studies and memories made. Anyone affiliated with Plainview High School knows that academics are top priority to the faculty and this has been the case for decades, as the school receives top scores on standardized tests, annually. Also important, however, is the emphasis on extracurricular activities such as cheerleading, band, and especially athletics. The Bears football team has made appearances in the State playoffs for 21 straight years. Other sports at Plainview include: baseball, basketball, softball, golf, tennis, and volleyball. Plainview has an "image," as many around the county say. Most outsiders see the families of those who attend the school as being "superior" or "cocky." Maybe this is true, maybe it isn't. Politics are everywhere, including this high school.
