I really wanted to give a 3.5, here''s the thing, I have moved a lot and seen a lot of schools, and this isn't really an amazing school, but it is a good school. If you go here, it is because you have no choice. After all, the state of Texas decides where you go to high school based on where you live, it isn't open enrollment, but I will also say, this school is much better than the other options in the area, and it is by far the safest option. While visiting the other high schools in the area, one of the things I heard from a teacher was that most of the other schools were poorly designed, and he even went on to say that Plano West was designed like a kill box in times of emergency like a lock down because kids by the lunch hall have nowhere to run when the doors lock.
