We continue to develop and grow in leaps and bounds as a learning community aligned with the district focus on Students, Teaching and Learning as we strive to fulfill our PHS Vision: Prepare all students for a successful and rewarding life in the 21st century global society.
Advanced Learning Opportunities: Plainville High School has experienced many successes and accomplishments over the last several years with increasing numbers of students engaging and succeeding in challenging, college level courses. In addition to more than a dozen Advanced Placement (AP) options offered, our University of Connecticut Early College Experience programs have expanded significantly, providing students with another avenue to earn high school and college credit simultaneously. These programs provide rigorous learning opportunities and help to ease the financial burden on families to pay rising college tuition costs. Between Advanced Placement, UConn ECE and Tunxis dual credit programs, our students have more than 20 different opportunities to earn college credit while at PHS. We are proud to have doubled these programs and equally excited about the expansion of our Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) programs. These programs include our Digital Devils FIRST Robotics team, our STEM Lab complete with 3-D Printers and the latest in high-tech equipment and real-world applications to provide a wide variety of hands-o...

High school graduation has increasingly become a stepping stone, rather than the end of one’s educational journey. The majority of Plainville’s graduates choose to continue their education in a four year college or university, while others choose community college, military service or entry into the world of work. In these difficult economic times, it is important to gain as much leverage through education and training as one can. Education is a key that opens the doors to opportunity.
Plainville High School is an exceptional place to learn and grow, and we will continue to make it even better. We look forward to an exciting year ahead. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (860) 793-3220 with any questions or suggestions for improving Plainville High School.

- One of the listed accomplishments on Springbrook High School’s website is that the school has the highest number of freshmen students enrolled in Advanced Placement United States History (APUSH).

AP exams are graded on a scale from 1 to 5, with 1 being the lowest possible score and 5 being the highest. A 3 is considered a passing score. While a 3 is considered a passing score on an AP exam, several local colleges will only accept a score of 4 or 5 for credit for certain subjects.... [tags: High school, College, Secondary school]

- High School vs. Middle School The transformation from middle school to high school marks an exciting and overwhelming time in a teenager’s life. It marks the beginning of a new chapter in life and it opens new doors of opportunity.

High school and middle school are very different with only a few similarities. The two different levels of schooling have completely different time schedules, different priorities take place, and one schools education system is more advanced than the other....

- Within the past decade, more and more kids have been given the opportunity to attend school past high school, something that the previous generations have not had. In a current news release, The Bureau of Labor Statistics stated that, “Of the 2.9 million youth age 16 to 24 who graduated from high school between January and October 2014, about 68.4 percent were enrolled in college in October” (BLS Economic News Release from April 2015).

As you know, I’m currently in my first semester of college, here at Western Michigan. I wasn’t worried about transitioning from high school to college, because I felt that my high school curriculum and teachers, along with my parents prepared me for this transition. The only thing I was worried about what upholding the promise that I made with my grandmother and parents.... [tags: High school, High School Musical, College]
