Pinellas County Schools Reviews

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!

I liked the Pinellas County Schools that I've attended. I have went to Sawgrass Lake Elementary, Pinellas Park Elementary, John Hopkins Middle, Pinellas Park Middle, Tyrone Middle and Saint Petersburg High School. I have spent all 12 of my academic years attending Pinellas County schools and now I am ecstatic to be finally graduating. I feel so prepared!
I attended Morgan Fitzgerald Middle School. While the gifted program was great and the faculty cared much about their students, I did have many inconveniences such as the multiple bomb threats which weren't at all pleasant. As a freshman, I attended Largo High School's ExCEL program, this seemed like a normal school and I have few complaints. My remaining years in high school I attended St. Pete Collegiate High School which was the best decision of my life! This is the best school I have ever been to; there is always help for my classes and the staff are almost like second parents to me.
