    Overall Experience: Plano Senior High School is the best high school known to man. There is a friendly student body and everyone has amazing spirit. The parents are involved in everything as well. The school is always fired up especially during football season and our Wildcat Spirit is always rushing through the campus. I love this school and I will miss it so much when I graduate in the Spring.

    Overall Experience: I loved all of my teachers! They know what they are teaching and are willing to help you in class or outside of class. They care about the student, grade and what the student will be doing after college. It makes it unique because they involve everyone with everything, there are fun pep-rallys to help encourage school spirit. I want my children to one day go to Plano Senior High School because it is full of tradition, fun, excelling in education and just an overall greatness from graduating Plano Senior.
