Once loved for it's traditions, PLHS has lost it's appeal. Many of those wonderful traditions have been eliminated by the new administration. Students from all different circles cannot wait to leave now. This is unfortunate because there are many excellent and caring teachers.

Have a student senior in PLHS. School badly in need of expansion and repair, however, referendums continually voted down. Taxes in this town aready very high. Academically PLHS has some very good teachers who care about the students. That said the Math and Science Departments are very weak. History and English Departments are its strong points. More competent teachers needed IMO. More AP classes needed. The Guidance Dept. at PLHS is inept to put it kindly. As a parent you need to take control from selecting classes for you child to the entire college Selection and application process. Honestly,a culture of laziness exists here and you must be pro-active. New Principal is outstanding and changes will be made. It will take time. A kind of jockism, an its good enough culture has kept PLHS> mired in mediocrity. Principal also needs support from the Superintendant that is unless he's part of problem.
