    Overall Experience: With the friendly atmosphere, this school made it easy for me to create memories and friends despite the fact that we only get two years to spend at this school. I was able to meet people that change my life for the better. Since I have a difficult moment making new friends in new environment, I thought this would be difficult but I was proven otherwise.

    Most of my memories revolved around the orchestra program itself. I got to meet amazing players and performed amazing works of art. The social events such as homecoming and prom made the years memorable since I spent them with those I care about. Spending time with them outside of school allowed me to see the other sides of them that most would not notice unless you knew them.

    Teachers: Teachers are often involved in the lives of the students. They are actively listening to current concerns or issues that arise in the student community. The teachers find ways to compromise with the students in hopes they graduate with good memories of their years at Plano East. Each member of the staff team often consult with students one on one especially when they notice that the student is struggling or in need of comfort.

    Their teaching adapts to the needs of the students and helps each individual student succeed in the class, such as providing outside homework help or tutorials according to the convenience of the student. The teachers are always involving current events to help the students remember important information. They show enthusiasm everyday despite how much they struggle with the students.
