There is a reason this school tops ranking charts. Our hats are off to PISD, school management, teachers, support staff and PTA. Best place to go to high school in DFW.

Plano ISD and PWSH in particular has become a large bureaucratic organization that cares more about itself than the students they are supposed to serve. VERY easy for kids to get lost in the crowd. Try to talk to them - you will just get stonewalled. Very cold and indifferent towards parents.

As a graduate of Plano West, I can attest to the high quality of education that students receive at this high school. It is an extremely competitive school, but that competition prepared me for college and the rigorous academic challenges I later had to face. The teachers are very caring and truly want ...  Read more
