    "My two boys attend PHUHS. One is in the traditional Univeristy program and the other in the Medical magnet program. The education quality is excellent in both and frankly I think the public schools in FL are reflective of parental involvement. The kids are generally strong academically and of course there are others that don't care. Sadly, I would blame the parents for the poor showing for some of these kids. The school offers accelerated honors and AP courses so if your child is not challenged , I would say there are opportunities. I really dont see other Pinellas ISD schools as better than PHUHS. Actually I would say PHUHS is tops in the district when you factormin other social issues of drug use, fights, self ego-wealth, etc..."

    "Don't let the "A" fool you! (That's the IB Program pulling that grade up) This school is losing its reputation, for good reason, students are segregated, there are 40+ portables with no catwalk, kids get soaked when it rains, and it's Florida so it rains a lot. Teachers are snobby (some are bad and don't even realize the only reason their school perpetually gets an "A" and extra MONEY is because of their prized IB/Medical students are children of wealthy doctors or lawyers, can afford Sylvan tutoring or frankly would still get "A"'s if they went to Gibbs etc.) , students are snotty with cliques (absolutely cruel to one another, the stuff you hear about on Facebook doesn't tell half the story). Administration on cruise control or completely useless. If they were at a REAL High School they wouldn't have the foggiest of an idea what to do. It's not all bad, there are many good kids (if they have good responsible parents) and some good teachers, the sad part is that this is probably the best (if not, top 3) High school in the county. If this is the best Pinellas can do, students & parents should be asking for their money back & marching on Tallahassee with pitchforks & torches!"

    "I just recently graduated from this school and I was in the university which is just the normal part of the school I went to this school for four years and while most the student were extremely nice and helpful there were a few that I wish would have gotten fired also the student that go to this school all they take about is drugs the violence in the school is very very low the fights that I have seen and heard were just a bunch of yelling. as for "fitting in" the only people that did were the ones talking about parties and rowdies and sports kids. there was also the kids that were left out of everything because they dressed weird. I hope when reading this you understand that high school is not a perfect place but it is the best and somehow the safest then most. To the parents hope this helped."

    "We are a military family moving back to Florida and PHHS was recommended to us. I had my son go into the office and ask for a registration form, I wanted to see how he would be treated without a parent accompanying him. He was treated unprofessional and yelled at for not having his registration forms in yet, if this school was professional and caring to their students she would've taken the time to help him and understand our lifestyle. He came out and told me how rude the women at the front desk was, I walked in and I was treated as if I was bothering her, before I even got a word out she said "we don't give tours". I knew then I was dealing with someone not happy with her life. PHHS should hire someone to represent their school (especially in the front office, where your parents of future doctors, lawyers, teachers etc. see first) with professionalism enthusiasm, school spirit, also have knowledge of the school instead of saying go to the Internet. I hear great things about your students, but good lord your secretary with short dark hair full figure sitting up front would've been fired if she was my employee. And I'm most positive this isn't her first complaint."
