"This school has something for everyone. It has Journalism,jrotc,culinary,hosa,art, and much more. Most children at this school focus more on their education than who their friends are. And teachers are and guidence counslers are always there to support them."
"I'm writing an updated review as an alumnus who is over 10 years out. I graduated in '02. So many of my fellow classmates are very successful. In fact, one of them is an international CBS news correspondent, one just graduated from Columbia Law, another is attending Stanford Law, one mixes sound for pop and R&B albums that you listen to on the radio all the time...I could keep going, but I'd run out of space. I'm working on a second career. I just started law school after spending 7 years working in Marketing for the Metropolitan Opera. Basically, what I'm trying to say is that if your child is focused and smart, they are going to do well anywhere. I am a privileged person and my privilege helped me regardless. In fact, Plantation might be better for them because they will be a big fish in a little pond. Also, let's be real here for a sec: the diversity is what scares most [white] parents off. Little Hannah, Madison, and Tyler are going to be fine. If they can't handle themselves at PHS then they need therapy, not private school."
"My son will be a senior this 2013-2014 school and I have enjoyed these last 2yrs. He went to a well known private school here in Broward County and thousands of dollars later wasn't the least bit impressed. I moved to Plantation and enrolled him the neighborhood high school without knowing much about its reputation. Day 1 I was welcomed with open arms and a smile. There are days when its hectic like any other business, but the staff always strives to do the best. I love and support my Colonels!!!!"
