Although the teachers tend to give an overwhelming amount of homework, in the end it is worth it. The homework helps a student better understand what was said or reviewed in class. Late hours finishing homework was harsh but good grades on tests were rewarding.
By far the best high school in the district. When I started college, I felt prepared and confident. The skills and knowledge that was provided by Pleasant Grove has definitely allowed me to succeed in various situations in my life. The teachers really do impact their students.
No nighschool cliches , some focuses of sports , once in a rare blue moon a fight may occur in addition to some kids smoking in bathrooms, not surprising if you consider yourself a bystander giving you the choice to be a snitch or not. If you wanna have friends at this school dont bother most of the kids that attends grew up together throughout the schools next door, but dont let that stop you from trying your best
PGHS has an incredible faculty & staff. Personal, congenial, professional, approachable. It's an all star cast. And they were just rated a perfect 10 of 10. I absolutely love that my kids attend this school.
I graduated with the class of 2013. The students at this school, on average, are quite nice. There isn't a big focus on cliques at this school which I really liked. Theres a really big focus on the Ag department as well as sports so that can be bothersome at times but they try to create a safe and open environment. Even tho a lot of parents have negative things to say, as someone who actually went to the school I think it's fantastic.
This school unfortunately focuses on certain areas, for example test scores and certain athletic departments. Compared to other schools in the district this school really needs to reevaluate their administrative staff (not to mention names) and a few of their office staff. Not very friendly office staff when picking up child. Am I wasting their time? Really. Bias admin also. A few teachers are okay but some would rather not want to respond to emails. Isn't that part of their job? Emailing back parents and not ridiculing your child if you do email them about an academic problem you may have. What happened to an open door policy? Some folks should not be there. Like I mentioned earlier, if your child is not a 'star' athlete, or last name doesn't fit in the mold or grades are average...good luck at this school. Its too bad because this school can definitely improve. it should definitely look at a few other schools in the district that have students as prime goal.
Front office very rude(her name is Jenny). Intimidate kids and even parents if you ask questions. She cuts you off, not helping at all. Not good example to kids. She should not work around people mostly to our kids.
Parking is a nightmare; school too full. Front office staff is the worst! If you don't want to deal with parents or students, why are you working at a school?! Ridiculous policies, they sigh when they have to help you, along with rude attitude. Hopefully, you will get a student helper when you go to office. (They are also rude with their student helper!)
Pleasant Grove is by far the best school in this region. Most of the negative complaints listed here are from STUDENTS. No surprise that teenagers dislike their school. As a parent of a recent graduate, let me assure you that Pleasant Grove High School is the perfect blend of academics, athletics, and learning opportunities.
