I think the Supt. Dan Tyree's banning of the song Rocky Top is absurd. What's next? Banning the Star Spangled Banner because it mentions the Free and Brave? Shame on you. You are Anti-American and an Obama supporter, no doubt!

I attended this school for three years, until I dropped out for a multitude pf reasons. I am currently working to obtain my GED, and pursue higher education. As a gay teenager, I was constantly bullied throughout my Junior High and High School career with Plymouth Schools. Numerous pleas for help to the staff and administration were either ignored, or were responded to saying it was "your fault for coming out", and that "you must have expected this reaction." There are a few teachers that stand by their students, and genuinely care about the lives of their students, and they are what allowed me to last as long as I did. Favoritism runs rampant through Plymouth Schools, and a thriving Old Boy's Club is alive and well within the community, Students are singled out for various reasons, including success in athletics, financial status, legacy, and race. Rule breaking is overlooked for them, both on the level of students, and staff. I urge you to consider other school systems in the area before you send your children to Plymouth Schools. The experience had a lasting effect on my self-esteem, and my educational career.

I went to Plymouth High School and overall, I loved it. Was it the best years of my life, no but I've always been under the assumption that high school shouldn't be the best times of your life. Were some of the teachers a bit dry and bland, yes but that's the way at every school. Most of the teachers I had were great and really did care about the students. Are some students favored over others, yes but once again that's the way it is at most schools. The amazing theater department, speech and debate team, choir program and journalism class really helped break me out of my shell and made me a better, more outgoing person. I look back on my time at PHS with fond memories.

The past 6 years I have been in 8 different schools. I came here this year and it has been the best experience of my life. The people are so open to me and it has an extremely diverse enviroment that allowed me to fit in esaily. The students here have such an incredible opportunity to succeed. I was ready to give up until I came here. Ionly wish that I was not in my senior year and could experience more. Students here go far.

I went to this school for the last two years of my high school education. Compared to the school I went to for my first two years, this school is excellent. I found the teachers and staff more then accommodating and helpful. They helped to make sure that I got the best education I could possibly have and didn't fall short. I do find that the teachers and staff are not as recognized as they should be for all the hard work they put into helping the students out. I just am happy that they helped me get my diploma and set me on the right path.

Sadly, I have to agree with the student below and their assessment. This community is a very tight knit group, and if you weren't born here, you don't belong. The good old boy network runs the school board, and while this lasts, academics will always come second to the sports programs and the band. The teachers are largely unaware of the needs that their students bring, and most often, less than interested, unless you are one of the chosen, usually socially and financially well off. The one upside to this school are the Principal and the Assistant Principal, who genuinely seem to care about the students.

Athletics held above academics, was on the national watch list for istep scores in the past year and a half. It may look like a goodschool on the outside, but if you were there for a day you could tell the truth. Teachers have lost their will to care, due to the constant barrage of undisiplined students and little support from their peers. They are ignored by the administation. Generally, not a good school. Trust me, I know.

Good teachers and class activity. Poor hallway and neighborhood security. Also, extra-curricular activities and their participants are valued over academic achievements.

I believe that Plymouth High School should put academic studies in a higher priority than they do at this time. Extra curricular activities are just that

I think Plymouth Schools are great. I have a child that had almost given up on school until we moved to this area. He has teachers that honestly care how he is doing with his work. Of all those who brow beat this community school system, you need to take a closer look into how things are really done. The school systems in near by towns are much worse then this one. I think God all the time for bringing us into this community and its schools.

It would not surprise me if this school was ranked one of the lowest in Indiana. The only reason why they are even recognized is due to their basketball program. The education is lacking (especially the foreign language departments) as compared to other states. I know this firsthand as I was a student here. The teachers are definately not recongnized for their efforts...the students attitudes seem to be the underlying problem-probably due to the small town atmosphere. As I stated earlier, athletics is the only thing keeping this school/town on the map.

Good school. Often sacrifices academic core classes to extra-curricular interests. Leadership needs to seriously consider ways to improve education rather than drawing invalid conclusions based on extremely subjective data. Some teachers are bent on protecting their jobs versus school improvement. Corporation has chosen to construct buildings to reinforce extra-curricular objectives rather than support professional staff which continues to be asked to do more with less. Staff members have been over-stretched and not rewarded for their efforts resulting in low morale. ISTEP scores continue to rise with no teacher recognition from corporate leaders or community. These teachers should be rewarded better.

Excellent school with a great graduation rate! The Principal and his staff are on the right track to making this school the top rated school in Indiana. Parents, send your children here with peace of mind! They will get a super education in a safe and welcoming learning environment!
