Dr. Phillips is a school that has pushed my academically with teachers that care. I have been able to pursue a well-rounded education that includes college-prep academics while being exposed to community outreach, clubs that enhance their critical thinking skills, advance classes including many AP and honors classes and various sports i.e. basketball, baseball, soccer, STEM Club, Coding Club, Art Club, and many Honor Societies. It have lots of extra curricular activities, it keeps me busy every single day! The teachers are very dedicated to their students and demonstrate a commitment to excellence in education.

Join all sorts of clubs if you can! There is a wide variety of clubs on campus that can help you fit in and make friends and they will absolutely help you get into college. I was a member of five honor societies, the beta club, history club, and love letters club (we wrote cards for children in hospitals) as well as a four year member of the women's lacrosse team. It's definitely possible to do all of this and take 5 AP classes at the same time! Most clubs are student run so they are pretty relaxed. There is a decent amount of help from the club sponsors but not so much from the administration.

The classes and teachers are pretty good and enjoyable! My counselor helps me every time I need, but the administration should improve their atendement. The restroom is another thing that I would like to discuss. It always dirty and never has toilet paper!
