Plainville Middle School is a wonderful school. The principle and a great human being and really cares for his staff which makes a great enviroment for the students. My daughter can not wait to go to school everyday. As far as the being racial diverse. The schools can not control race, It is the people who buy houses or rents in the town. The district already buses enough kids in from the city, so many that there is no room for the current students at the schools. People should stop looking at the color of skin and look at these students as human beings. WE LOVE MSP!!!!!!!!!!!!1
