"Teachers were very efficient and explained this very well for all learning types. There were a lot of resources at the school to help students go above and beyond to get ready for their college careers. Very happy with this. I want my children to go to this school."
"Personally I had a great experience at Plant. Most teachers and administrators will do their best to assure that you do well and are actively preparing yourself for college. Most teachers will be willing to provide you will extra help, you are given good textbooks and online resources to help you study and most teachers genuinely want to help you succeed. As long as you take advantage of these resources, you should do great here. Of course there are good and bad people, but considering that it's highschool, there are actually a lot of good people. Plant has AMAZING school spirit. Going to sports events or student-lead events is always fun. The school pride is super contagious and makes you feel like you're in a highschool movie. The administration is pretty slow and is constantly busy, but seeing as the school is overcrowded that is to be expected. Overall, this school tries its best to ensure your success." - niche.com
