    "I have been very pleased with PBC, my child went to another school in the county prior to and the focus was on many other things in that school but academics was not one of them. The kids ran the school, here the kids have teachers who actually try to teach and prepare them for the next phase. (FYI for those that complain about the school being expensive its the same everywhere)"

    "I agree with a Previous post. The school is more interested in tracking attendance and tardies (3 seconds after bell rings) is considered late..which lands the student a detention. The school has 3000 students, all navigating at once, with stops to lockers between classes in addition to the morning drop off line. More focus on that then teaching. My child has been slammed with detentions..btw no bus after detentions. My child is always stressed out about this. Today I was told by school that they had a full house at the Saturday detention. Unreal."

    "I was a student here for 4 years and graduated in 2009. This school has good teachers...about 7 of them. The office staff is so beyond RUDE, they made me cry 3 separate times...and I have never had ANY behavior problems. It doesnt doesn't matter if you are alumni, a parent, a student, or a soon-to-be student...they treat you horribly. It is built like a prison (I know this because I sat next to one of the architects on a plane from Tampa, who told me they designed it like a prison). I had good teachers, I only have to use one hand to count them. There is a serious lack of trust in the students from ALL staff. I am glad I am out of there. Was I prepared for college? Yes, but that is only because I was in all honors and AP classes. Best of luck to all who will or are going to PBCHS."

    "This school is huge, disorganized, and the kids are mostly under the influence, and mouth off to the teachers. It's also messy and the school actually is accepting the bad behavior of so many teens like littering cussing and more... The teachers don't even teach u much at all, and most of the staff are just down right rude... Avoid going to this school!"
