My daughter goes to this school. It has changed so much when she was a freshman to now. They treat the students like children and they don't know how to discipline their students. I feel as if they don't have enough school spirit and everyone is miserable with the new rules with the jeans, and no leggings. Half of the clothes I bought my daughter she cannot even wear. So I needed to buy her new clothes in which she hates. I feel that they need to chill out with all of the rules and focus more on the students.

The new principal, Mrs. Mik, has re-energized this school with her enthusiasm and positive outlook. This is reflected in the attitude of the student body. The school was featured as a 'cool school' by a local television station during the last school year. This will be our child's senior year and the past few years have included very memorable and positive experiences, especially with regard to the band. Mr. Guilmette is a great teacher and mentor to his students. Several former students are now staff or teachers at the school. We feel that the low test scores are not an accurate reflection of the quality of education at this school. The building does need to be updated, and the City is planning to update both high schools in the future.

i am a former platt student, class of 07 and my personal expericnce wasnt the greatest. Though i have heard that it is better than Maloney. Now, i started my high school years at Wilcox, please do not send you kids there, its even worse. Platt by far is better than the the rest. The faculty is somewhat friendly, yet there are many issues about safety. Alot of harrasing going on, bullying is still an issue, and the language the students are using with the teachers is just no right. The school itself has been falling apart. I was there when the school was closed so they could fix the ceilings since it was leaking. The air quality is not so good, and in the summer is very, very uncomfortable. Academically, the classes are alright, im in college now, but i find myself learning things i didnt learn there.

We think Orville H Platt High School is just Awesome! Since our daughter has entered the school last year as a freshmen she has both grown and prospered! Her grades and attitude both show this as a positive sign of good school moral. She loves the teachers she has had and has now. She also loves Cheerleading and Chorus which she is involved in. We hope the school continues with a positive environment so everyone gets to benefit!-Mr and Mrs Joe Heany

I agree with Jack, my student is going to platt as well and she is always being harrased by boys. When she comes home she is never in a good mood. I am planning on moving her to a new school soon, away from meriden. Meriden has gone down these past couple years. Well I hope other parents will listen to me, because this school gots some real not good problems. Thank you guys and girls! Ben D.

My son is currently going to this school. He does not like it to much. There is alot of bullying going on. The staff is ok but I have had some problems with some teachers. I think this school is ok but it needs to improve much goodly. Jack M.

I thin kthat they need to fix the roof before putting any more money into anything for this school. The kids have to dodge trash cans when it rains, and I am worried about what will happen this winter when a storm hits...the build a beautiful new middle school; across the street, when it could have waited for the high school to be fixed.
