    "Both the Traditional And Medical Magnet programs are excellent academically. Much of what your child puts in is what they get out from an educational standpoint. Prefer this school vs. an overrated East Lake HS."

    "My son is in the 9th grade in the University. I tried numerous times to contact Mr. Papp his guidance counselor to change around his schedule. I called and emailed. I received NO Response to any of my inquires. Frustrated, I decided to find out who the Special Education Person in charge was. (While he does have an IEP he no longer requires any special education classes). The school year has just started and today is day 9. I was very happy to meet with Julie Kemble, the VE Specialist. My son has an IEP and it turns out, she is also his case manager. She was able in just 24 hours to change around his schedule to accommodate his love of music and the arts. He is very happy and so am I. So far, all the teachers I have met seem very nice. They DO have portables behind the school, and they are nice and air conditioned but son has gotten wet going outside during the rain from class to class as most of his classes are in these portables. I am hopeful, that with my parental involvement, that my son will have a great school year. So far so good but without Julie Kemble, my son would not have had Musical Theatre in his schedule this year, and for that I am grateful."

    "I have been in the Palm Harbor area for two years. My child goes to PHUHS and she is a straight A student. However, sadly enough, my daughter has told me on numerous occasions how rude her new teachers are this year. Being role models for our children, I am disgusted when the hypocrisy is so prevalent. What ever happened to leading by example. They expect our children to have a positive attitude about school but just like going to a job where your boss is constantly nasty, wouldn't the overall morale eventually decline? I was in the office today requesting some information from the school and the office staff was so patronizing to me. It's awful that they are so use to talking this way to parents and students, that they become ignorant to the fact that they are disrespectful and rude. As parents, we are going to really have to place extra emphasis on helping our children to continue to have a positive attitude regardless of low morale from the ones that are suppose to be helping mold our children's minds!"

    "PHUHS is an overcrowded school. I know. I read some reviews and have seen a lot of complaints about how the IB students and the regular students are segregated. I, as an IB student, believe that that is very good. In the one regular class that I have (my elective), you can CLEARLY tell who is and isn't in IB. The behavior gap is so large. IB kind are here because they want to learn and succeed in life while I don't think the regular students care! Bullying, Drugs etc... goes on at every High School. Go to Largo or Gibbs High School for a day! Sure there are cliques but just join a sports team of club that you are interested in and I can bet you a majority of your friends will be in that club. No school is perfect but that doesn't mean nasty comments need to be left about all of them. The IB teachers are great and care because their students care. Maybe the problem isn't the teacher or the school, it's the student. Just something to think about..."

    "I have two kids at PHUHS right now and I wish there was a better school in the area for them. Unless you are a IB student or a Medical Student THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT YOU. My daughter has spent her entire Freshman and Sophmore years at that school in those wretched trailers in the back. She has never had a class in a building. The IB kids/Medical are in doors all day long enjoying the A/C, but traditions are out in the rain and heat all year long. The drug problem is absolutely out of control. There has been two kids OD within a month or so of each other and died. The wealth there has to be the main factor contributing to this. The school has way too many students in it and boarders on unsafe. My kids tell me that the traditional kids really do feel like they are segragated against because they aren't IB/Medical, and that is just an absolute shame. Unless you absolutely have to go to this school don't. If we had known going in this was how it was going to be we would have seriously considered a home school program."
