  • My daughter attended Plainview high school when she was a freshman. She was treated badly by a number of children because she was white. When she requested to change classes, she was denied many times by the staff counselor. I recommend parents rethink their choice, before allowing their child to attend Plainview High school. Luckily she moved with me to another state, and I am happy to report, she is doing much better.
