    "My daughter has just begun the theater magnet program at Dr. Phillips and loves it. I drive from the east side of Orlando to take her every morning, and I am happy about it, because she is happy. The program that Ms. Rugario has poured herself into is one of excellence. This, combined with the great education she is getting with caring teachers shows up that Dr. Phillips is the right high school for her. In 2 years, her brother wants for follow his sister to the magnet program because, he too, loves theater."

    "My daughter just graduated from the Dr. Phillips Theatre Magnet program-she is away at college as a freshman. She attended all 4 years in the magnet-and like any progrm -it is not perfect--but it is the best opportunity for a student who loves theater-- to learn, grow and develope as a young adult--in central Florida and possibly the best in the state!-Yes, you do have to do a some fund raising-and volunteer work-however if you want your children to have the best productions then you must realize that it costs money--these productions are not your typical "high school" plays--they are high tech,the stages are beautiful, and the costume, sound and lighting will leave you thouroughly entertained!! At the end of the day--you will have a student that has absorbed the entire theater experience--and they can take that with them into the next phase of college and they will outshine all the others because of their time at the Dr. Phillips Theater Magnet!!"

    "The theater magnet program at Dr. Phillips High School is excellent for those students interested in the Performing Arts. Students of this program gain experience in all aspects of theater, from the technical side to performing under the leadership of Ms. Karen Rugerio and Ms. Susan Porro. Furthermore, in the magnet program, the student's English class is devoted to the study of plays and playwrights. Each student is assigned a playwright and has to do an intensive analysis of the plays written by the playwright in several different written papers. Students even direct a scene from one from one of the plays. After this experience, students are more than ready for any project given to them in college. Students compete in theater competitions at the District and State Level each year. Last year, after winning the FL Theatre Conference with their one act play, "Dancing at Lughnasa," DP was invited to the SE Theatre Conference in Kentucky. Students from this program have also traveled to Scotland to perform in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. College trips to performing arts colleges in the NE are also offered to juniors and seniors. This is definitely a first rate program!"

    "My daughter is a 2010 graduate of Dr. Philips Theater Magnet Program. She has always been interested in theater and performance, so it was a God-send that we moved to Orlando for her to audition for the program. In her four years there she continued to learn responsibility , dedication ,team work , working long hours towards a goal, auditioning techniques, developing relationships with students from diverse backgrounds and never giving up in what you believe. Ms Rugerio always leads her students to be the best they can be; and Ms Porro, according to my daughter, is one of the best teachers she has ever had. District and State competitions, many community programs, fall trips to visit colleges and so much more were experiences which help these students learn and grow. My daughter is now in her senior year at The Boston Conservatory where she has excelled. As a parent, I too worked long hours as a volunteer and developed life-long friendships with other dedicated parents at Dr. Phillips .Hard work has many benefits. No program is perfect, but this one was perfect for our daughter."

    "The Drama magnet at Dr Phillip's High School has provided our daughter with curriculum rich in experience and challenged her critical thinking skills. When she auditioned, we knew she would be exposed to great training in the performing arts; what we've come to be amazed by is her deeper understanding of issues that effect the human experience on a global level. The teaching team not only prepares these students for life on the stage, but in fact, for life."
