    "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."

    "I had heard that PHUHS was a highly rated school and highly sought after. I feel that this is true for the Ib and the Medical program only. It appears that the other kids are just lumped together and assigned to the 30-some portables on the property. It looks like a trailer park back there. This is a wealthy area and it is a disgrace that this school has not been enlarged to hold the overcrowding. Teachers are arrogant and condescending for the most part and seem rude and overwhelmed. One teacher doesn't talk, She just says look at the board. One teacher not only continually eats in front of her students but is now selling, yes selling, food to them . Teachers are slow to enter grades into the Portal. I am not impressed at all. This used to be a much better school than it is now."

    "My two boys attend PHUHS. One is in the traditional Univeristy program and the other in the Medical magnet program. The education quality is excellent in both and frankly I think the public schools in FL are reflective of parental involvement. The kids are generally strong academically and of course there are others that don't care. Sadly, I would blame the parents for the poor showing for some of these kids. The school offers accelerated honors and AP courses so if your child is not challenged , I would say there are opportunities. I really dont see other Pinellas ISD schools as better than PHUHS. Actually I would say PHUHS is tops in the district when you factormin other social issues of drug use, fights, self ego-wealth, etc..."

    "Don't let the "A" fool you! (That's the IB Program pulling that grade up) This school is losing its reputation, for good reason, students are segregated, there are 40+ portables with no catwalk, kids get soaked when it rains, and it's Florida so it rains a lot. Teachers are snobby (some are bad and don't even realize the only reason their school perpetually gets an "A" and extra MONEY is because of their prized IB/Medical students are children of wealthy doctors or lawyers, can afford Sylvan tutoring or frankly would still get "A"'s if they went to Gibbs etc.) , students are snotty with cliques (absolutely cruel to one another, the stuff you hear about on Facebook doesn't tell half the story). Administration on cruise control or completely useless. If they were at a REAL High School they wouldn't have the foggiest of an idea what to do. It's not all bad, there are many good kids (if they have good responsible parents) and some good teachers, the sad part is that this is probably the best (if not, top 3) High school in the county. If this is the best Pinellas can do, students & parents should be asking for their money back & marching on Tallahassee with pitchforks & torches!"
