Open Quote I was a PLP student I have been there kindergarten through 8th grade and I promoted class of 2016 best teachers and staff I would give them five stars but worst administration you can have at an IB school I was bullied in everyway you can think of I was bullied about my race I was cyberbullied and physically bullied being pushed and shoved I told and told on these people so many times I was even threatened my life and administration as in principal and vice principal didn't care! which was expected from them anyway they only care about their "favorite students" "their children that went to school there" I lost all hope for them in the beginning of the first bullying which were my bullies and their friends I was told I was stupid and dumb I knew wasn't true so I didn't believe it ("because of my disibility which is not noticeable someone told someone and everyone found out") I have knee issues ("which is not a disibility") and it is very noticeable and thats when the physical bullying began because my legs were weak I came home with bruses on my knees from the slugging and how hard I fall everyday at school because of these bullies and so I told and told the principal that was insistant that it didn't exist I had proof on my phone all the texts of my cyberbullying and he said it was in my head so he didn't have to deal with the problems and the principals word saying "Perspective" is what got me mad but I told myself if no one believes you at school you know the truth and thats all that matters what made me mad is that all the little kids hugging the principal and the vice like celebrities which me the only one who knows the real person they really are made me sick because these kids don't know the other side of them and they are fake when this happens I don't like using the word hate but if there was a stronger word then hate for this school I would use it and im going to say it straight the vice principal treats us like zoo animals on display these are her words "look good" "the district is coming tomorrow look and be your very best!" "these are my best students because they are IB" "keep your grades up since we are IB I have high expectations from all you we need to beat the other schools so we are number one?!?" "COME TO THE OFFICE NOW!!" "YOU ARE THE WORST CLASS I HAVE SEEN TODAY DETENTION ALL OF YOU IN CLASS NOW!" "im disapointed with most of your grades" plus we heard all that most or some days when people visit our school like parents or district or important people we get warnings people are coming ahead of time we all older kids put masks on pretending to be all friends and family nothing wrong here since we are IB but once the masks are off in reality there is chaos everywhere bullying and problems I am well known there as a good student I love helping the younger ones which I was laughed at for helping by other students in my grade and when the teachers or people talk about how good I am and what a nice person I am the administration doesn't like it and they hear this at events or im right next to them I have delt with this for two years of this poor treatment at this school I have seen this school slowly callapse into what it is now "if there was an IB trait I have its RISK TAKER taking risks coming to school everyday knowing this terrible treament was going to happen with students and administration the next day." Im happy I do not go to PLP no more I would rate this school a zero but the lowest is one If your child is bullied tell them to never give up and they are not alone Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
