    "I go to Plainfield South and I love it! I'm in honors classes and we are challenged everyday. We write lots of papers and are expected to read the textbook outside of the classroom. The sports are great too. I feel as a school we have great sportsmanship. I'm in two sports here at South and we have had other teams coaches talk to use about how great our sportsmanship was. PSHS has many different clubs and lots of opportunities to get involved. I do have some young teachers but not all my teachers were young. Even though they are young they still know a lot of information and are very helpful. I feel that the teachers are very caring and are helpful to go to if you have a problem. They listen to what we have to say. I'm also in choir and the music programs are fun and educational. We learn more than how to sing a piece of music; we learn about how to read music on our own, how to play the notes on piano, and important life lessons. The school has improved so much since our principal has changed. We keep getting better every year! I feel that people are generally nice to each other. I made many new friends this year."

    "this school is way to focused on there football team. a TEACHER told my class a story of how 2 football players were not punished for fighting and they could play in a game still, there in also way too much fighting. the administration also lets the activity of classes in the past affect the things that the classes now can do, and that i feel is truly unfair"

    "Plainfield south is a school that cares nothing about what the students say but will do anything to please the parents. If you would like your student to have a say without you holding their hand on any topic , do not send them to Plainfield south. I am in all of the top music programs and the school rarely supports anything we do! I am also in theater and the floors of the stage have not been replaced in 12 years and parts of wood come off while we are preforming."

    "I had 3 of my daughters attend PSHS and would always complain about the teachers not wanting to explain the material. Most of the teachers are young and inexperienced. Too many fights. Deans have have favoritism over certain students which interacts with them disciplining the troublemakers. Very bad school do not recommend"
