    Overall Experience: the school is a top school for this area; however, if I had it my way, I would not have so many students there.

    Overall Experience: Plano East is so diverse and filled with so many opportunities to make sure you succeed after graduating. Also the fact that it has a Culinary Arts program is the best part about going to PESH and I would do it all over again just to hang out with my friends and cherish those rushed moments in my 2 years attending there.

    Extracurriculars: Some clubs get a little more respect then other clubs. Like NJHS gets more respect then AVID does which is unfair because everyone is in NJHS and not everyone is in AVID.

    Food: I never ate on campus, always went off campus. That should say a lot

    Administration & Policies: Lots of fights would break out, lots of kids skipping classes. Dress code was broken all the time. I was bullied but none of the teachers seemed to care.
