Pinellas County Schools Reviews
The teachers in Pinellas County Schools have a heart of gold! They love to help and get involved with the students directly. With that being said, I have received more than a hand full amount of teachers who became an inspiration to myself. I will be a high School senior next year, and have been exceptionally happy with the teachers I have received as well as the teachers my 7 siblings have received in the past as well. The teachers in Pinellas County make learning more enjoyable and effective as I look forward to going to school every single day.
I attended Countryside high school for three years of high school. There were many positives to going, but undoubtedly many negatives. The administration at this school is lacking- they do not care about students, only their reputations and salaries. While the academics is quite good, the body of students housed here should receive more attention from administrators and even teachers. Many students feel worthless and lose motivation in the beginning years. The athletics are good, but the coaches will sometimes push the players so intensely, that they end up dropping out of the sport entirely. What I do enjoy about this school, however, is that they have great teachers and great curriculum. There is a great array of sports and clubs available for students to choose from. The theatre and art department is great as well, with a great time dedicated to the practice and mastery of the arts. However, with this all being said, this is only one of the many schools in Pinellas.
Pinellas County Schools is by-and-large a good district for high schoolers (I cannot comment on their younger offerings as I did not attend then). The academics are fantastic, with programs like STEM and IB as standouts. For the majority, the teachers really seem to have a passion for teaching and even learning from their own students. At large schools like mine own, the club offerings are great and provide a school-within-a-school environment to meet new people. Safety is always an issue, but I feel that PCSB is actively taking steps to make us all feel more secure. Overall, the district is pretty good for high schoolers. I recommend it!
