Both our daughters graduated from this school. I can't think of anything negative to say. Both shared that their freshman year of college (Auburn University-honors courses) seemed easy after their preparation at PWSHS.

It seems to be that the stereotypes for students who attend Plano West are typically over privileged and rude

Academics are rigorous, sports competitive, extracurriculars plenty and culture is inclusive. You can pick up statistics and see that they are the best performing high school in DFW area but only by sending our children there, we learned of all the good things that aren't tangible. I'm very happy with our decision to pick this school. I went on college tours with my daughters and every Texas college adcoms knew about school's high standards. I thought okay we are in Texas but surprisingly out of state elite colleges also knew that we are coming from an academic powerhouse. That was a very nice surprise.

This school is overcrowded and the counsellors are cold-hearted and rude. My child informed me one of her classes has over 60 students packed into one room, with some students having to sit on the floor. Seems like a fire/safety hazard to me. Instructors told students to try to switch to another class, but when requests were submitted to counsellors, they are very short and rude with the students. If people do not enjoy working with students, perhaps they should find another career.

Great teachers, classes that prepare you for college, and overall feeling of inclusion - which is special in such a large campus. Sports programs are great with competitive teams.
