    They did nothing to prevent bullying. I would wait 20-25min in the lunch line pay full price for a lunch and they wouldn't give me the full lunch I payed for. I would be hungry all day. It was so COLD in the winter. and HOT in the summer. The parking lot dosent have security cameras even though you pay $60 to use it. The only good part was the teachers

    It's a small yet a very diverse school. They offer a wide amount of Honors and AP courses which significantly raises our test scores. The discipline is a a bit strict though when it comes to cell phone use gum chewing tardies and dress code and it's a little too overcrowded due to local population growth. Other than that I've enjoyed most of my experiences at PHS.
