    "This is my child's Freshman year and I am really impressed and happy with all aspects of this school. The VPA and AICE programs are excellent! And we loooove Principal Shelley. Keep up the good work!!!"

    "I give Booker High School 4 stars because the VPA programs are amazing. For any teen that is into the arts, this is a great school for that! But the reason why it's not a 5 star, is due to the academics. The teachers I had were mediocre. They either taught with all their might, or didn't teach at all. But that's not to say that there weren't smart students that attended due to the VPA program. I know of two former students that have been granted the Bill Gates Millennium Scholarship and they both went to Booker all four years and graduated from there. So it all depends on how the student's attitude is, not by the area that surrounds the school. A lot of SRQ residents will say that this school is dangerous, but in my entire 4 years as a student, I have never once felt that I needed to be on guard at ALL times! I felt more safe, than threatened."

    "I must say that I award a 5 star Rating to Booker High School, it's Principal, Teacher Quality, Saftey and Discipline. And most of all To the VPA Dance Department that has guided my daughter as a dancer, she who has received a full dance scholalship to Santa Fe College in Gainesville, Florida. From here she will attend Florida State, you can't ask for anything better. A proud Father."
