On Resources & Facilities: The facilities are a mix of dated as well as newer facilities for those in the IB program. Though there is a definite difference between the level of assistance in regulars classes compared with the AP and honors classes.

On Health & Safety: The physical bullying has pretty much stopped in most schools in our area because most bullies now have become cowards and are now hiding behind a username and a computer. Cyber-bullying cannot physically hurt the victim but it can cause them to feel more insecure and like less of a person. There are the occasional physical fist fights, but the administrators handle those pretty well. Other than that, there are not many school conflicts; health wise or bully wise.

On Academics: The curriculum and classes at Plano East are great. The teachers are really good at taking time out of their day and giving you one on one tutorials if you really need it, or if they don't have time they'll send you to another teacher for the same subject. The teachers really want us to succeed in each class.

On Sports & Fitness: Many students are involved in sports such as basket ball, volley ball, and soccer. But I am not interested in sports and therefore, there is not much to say about sports and fitness from personal stand point.

On Overall Experience: The school overall is okay. What I really like about the school is teachers. The teachers encourage the students to learn and are willing to help them to achieve success.
