I have attended PBC from the ages of 6 to 17 PBC is a great place for children/students to get the education that they need to succeed in adulthood. High school to middle schools offer many programs to prepare students! PBC schools offer programs in mechanical engineering, culinary arts, medical, criminal justuce, cosmetology, JORTC, early childhood education and more. What's better than schools that prepare your child to enter the work force before or after highschool [some even offer internships]! Being a student of PBC enabled me to particpate in dual programs in high School all 4 years which gave me multiple certifications, and a great job opportunity and multiple scholarships. The ocmpetitiveness of my PBC shcool also prepared me well for the high academic standards of college. Speaking for every student and parent in PBC the change I believe PBC schools does need to improve in implicating greater saftey and security measures.

I currently attend Jupiter High School as a senior, and I must say that my years being there have has its breakthroughs as well as challenges. The amazing staff there who is willing to help students become prepared for the real world impact us everyday. In contrast, not all staff is as kind as most.
As well as academic classes, most teachers are fantastic and passionate in what they teach, providing great opportunities to advise and lead students in grander directions rather than downhill!
This is a great district! Would love to see more funding for arts programs. As a student actively in my school's performance arts program, I believe students would benefit greatly from better-developed (and better-supported) arts programs. This would encourage artistic expression and keep students busy and out of trouble.
