    PCS is a great school with great teachers that really care for their students. No school is perfect but the teachers and staff at this facility do their best to give students a great experience for their middle years.

    PCS is a great school sure it could use a few new things but Mr.Davis really try's to make Plainfield Central School a great place to learn and grow. all the teachers are great and i love my teachers they are just so amazing and i feel so blessed to have wonderful teachers like them. I am really going to miss PCS next year when i am in high school but i know my time here has been spent well and i have learned so much that will carry be through the rest of my life. my teachers have had such a lasting impact on my life i want to be a teacher someday myself and i can think of nowhere else in Connecticut i would rather teach then in Plainfield Central School.

    We have very fun teachers and good disicpling the only thing that is a little dissapointing is the dress code i mean when we get into highschool other then that we have very hands on teachers they are fun to be around and i like being in classes with them so i think we have a pretty good school and i think if you were to enroll here you could have a good middle school time.

    I think that the teachers are very cool and that we have very nice vice principle and principle and I think that it is a great choice to make when letting your son/daughter go to Plainfield public school. This comes from a student that is just graduating as the 2007 class and I am going to high school but I do recommend it!! thanks for my school district

    This school was excellent. The teachers were all extremely helpful and cared for the students. Sixth grade was the most challenging for me but seventh and eighth grade were easily beacause my teachers helped me to adjust to the work that they gave. After I graduated from PCS and went to a private high school I had no trouble keeping up with the work we were given.
