    Teachers: Most teachers a Dr Phillips High school are extremely devoted to their students. They form organized plans of how to teach students in the best way possible so that they are able to gain every piece of knowledge available. I have had some teachers that were not as incredible...but for the most part, my school has teachers that teach only in ways that benefit the student. Communication is key with teachers at Dr Phillips. Every teacher I have ever had at DP has always made themselves available after or before school or during lunch to help students with anything they possibly need.

    Overall Experience: My overall experience of this school I can say it really opened my eyes. It was very wild my first year which made it more interesting, but as I got older and it started to get closer to graduation that is when everything was set into place.
