    Overall Experience: I love going to school and seeing all of my friends, including the teachers. I'm very involved in the arts, and our school is very well known for them. We also do exceedingly well in our sports and AP Testing. There are a few teachers that pick favorites, but of course that's natural. If I had the choice, I would undoubtedly choose PG again. No matter what, you can always find a friend there, or something that you love to do!! One of the best parts about PG is the school pride. We never fail to bring a ton of people to every football or basketball game, and even to choir and ballroom concerts! Our school goes all out for the spirit bowl, and it's always a great time. I love Pleasant Grove!!
