    "I am a Senior this year (Class of 2010) i am in travel and Tourism. since 10th Grade (sophomore) year because all freshman not in Beta or PCCA are in the renaissance program. And i have to say even though Gibbs is now a F school (one point from a D) and now declared the worst school in Pinellas county. Gibbs High School is still a great school. I've been here since my freshman year. they have a lot of great programs. One of them is the JROTC program. There are a lot of fights at this school and other bad things. Some of the activities are bad. they barely give us the chance of Pep-Rallies. we need more of them. We really don't do anything activites outside of school corresponding with Gibbs. But i guess its alright because i have great friends and some of the teachers are amazing. IfYouPickTheRightClassesThenYouWillHave A great time."

    "Yes I can agree with some of the comments of Gibbs. I am in the PCCA Program, and I would actually say I am impressed even though we are treated like we are in jail. It is unfair to me that what the general population does, they think every one else will do. I love the program, and the kids at Gibbs and I do plan on staying for my whole high school experience. I would say the teaching is a lot better than my old high school (Osceola High)."

    "Gibbs High School is a D school for good reason. Speaking honestly, as helpful and understanding as the staff can be, many hate being there as much as several students. If you are a smart indidvidual don't plan on learning anything Freshman or Sophomore year. You have to wait until you can start taking all AP classes Junior and Senior year. The school struggles so much, and students pay so little attention that I have actually been provided answers on exams just so the school keeps good records. The only salvation the school has are its magnet programs, the PCCA and BETA programs. Unfortunately, because the facultycan't trust the students at all, in fear that there will be an uprising of some sort, there is little, if any student freedom outside of these Magnet Departments."

    "'Top notch' arts education at the PCCA program at Gibbs High School comes at a significant price to students due to parent frustrations. For example a parent cannot plan from week to week for transportation. The schedules that are sent home state start times for rehearsals, recitals, etc not end times. They never end at a consistently. When you call the school to find out, they say they don't know... it depends on how many kids are performing that day. Our lives as parents are basically on hold pending the next loosely scheduled event. The traffic circle there is second to none in ineptitude. We have cross US 19 without any help from faculty or the SRO who stand up on the grass and watch the traffic-- no one directs it."

    "As a recent graduate of the BETA program at Gibbs I can say that while it sounds excellent in theory, in practice it has many glaring flaws. The organization of the staff is non-existent; if an assembly is scheduled for today, not one of your teachers will know about it until 5 minutes beforehand, when the announcement is made. The BETA classes were across the street at PTEC when I attended and was something of a blessing and a curse. However our separation from the Gibbs 'society' at large was a benefit as we we're therefore able to actually try to learn, rather than given passing grades so the school could improve it's dismal score. I would not recommend this school to anyone serious about learning."
