    "This is an excellent school for the visual and performing arts. My daughter is a senior there and, her talents have expanded so much in the few short years she has attended this school. This school deserves an A+!"

    "Booker gives students the opportunity to explore their creative abilities while receiving an excellent education. As a student at Booker, I truly enjoy going to school everyday to a safe environment where teachers and fellow peers are like family."

    "as a current senior i have been here for 2 principals (mrs.white-davis and mrs.dorset) though they both had/have many flaws they have also made the school better. mrs. dorset made the kids want to come to school and for that i miss her. mrs. white-davis has stressed the importance of accidemics (which i agree was much needed) but she has stressed it too much. i see other students who just dont care anymore. and as a student has has gone to florida schools all my life, when teachers/administration over stress the 'importance' of the FCAT, you get so annoyed with hearing it and just give up and dont try. i think that to make booker better they need to not stress the students out so much."

    "My daughter is in 9th grade at Booker High and this school is out of our county but it is where she really wanted to attend. I was so leary because of all the horror stories I had heard. That's what they are, just stories. The school is great and the kids are great. There is alot of homework because she is in the honors classes but she is learning so many things, I watched her and her friends do a presentation on power point for a group science project and I was so impressed at what they knew and how creative they were. I have no complaints. It is also a safe school."

    "I am an alumni from Booker. I graduated in 2007. Now I attend USF in Tampa. Booker taught me so much about life, and I think about how luck I was to go there every day. College is much different from high school. Booker left me prepared to deal with the challenge, though."
