    "Part 2 of 2: Why do you thing like School like Osceola school of arts and other types of school have lots of HAPPY KIDS running around, that's because those kids attending that school are at common grounds with their Teachers/School. Parents Should also be part of your child education, NO! NOT ONLY IN ELEMENTARY.... join your Kids HS PTA, if anything this is the most important part of your kids education, Make it count! If we Create HAPPY KID, that in turn will create HAPPY TEACHERS, which in turn creates a better environment in the class, creating a better SCHOOL, SCHOOL DISTRIC, Equaling a better generation of kids! KIDS take control, and TRY YOUR BEST, that way you can never say: "If only I would of" Niulka Laboy, Photographer & Graphic Designer In Osceola for 21 Yrs!"

    "Part 1 of 2: I'm Extremely sadden to hear such negative comments, especially from students. Being an Alumni of the 4th graduating class of Poinciana HS...It really seems that all of the nice and memorable Ideal experiences from a HS are long gone and a thing of the past. Now contemplating on what HS My soon to be 9th grader should go to is a decision that worries my husband (whom I met while in PHS) and I. I'm an active parent and it's really sad to see that ALL schools.....(Ok, with an exception of a handful) have lost and forgotten the meaning and the role of a "School" the school should be the home away from home for kid. Every child K-12 should feel loved & welcomed in their school (I've seen enough to be able to say that's by far that's NOT the vibe you get). High Schools and other levels of schools have lost focus, and common cutesy. OK, I don't want to sit here and sound like an advocate for the student, yes I know that today's offspring's can be a tough bunch, However I feel that schools are more concern on "school grade and ratings" instead of students needs and wants."

    "Poinciana is rather pathetic. They make us skip our whole day and sit in ISS for being late. Even if we're only a few seconds late. Then the students in ISS have to clean the school and pickup trash, when that's what janitors are supposed to be for. I also got yelled at for hugging my boyfriend and was told it was not school appropriate. It's not even like we were groping, it was just a friendly hug. Maybe if they'd chill a bit and actually clean the bathrooms then the students wouldn't feel so cramped and stressed. It feels like the deans and principals are suffocating us. Maybe next year it'll be better. But so far, we're only a B because the state lowered thir standards. So quit getting your hopes so high."

    "I am a student that has attended this school for two years now,and dont plan on going back. i moved here to the Osceola County and was zoned to Poinciana,i was looking for to this new experience but it didnt turn out the way i had hoped for. The students lack tons of motivation,strive,and the urge to learn. But also having the teachers loose the power and control over their students to want to learn or even have the respect makes it no better. Their are a few teachers here that care and work hard for their job and their are many that don't bother anymore. This school needs a definite change with students and teachers all together."
