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.
I like that there are many clubs, afterschool activities, and tutoring available all the time. I enjoyed that I had many opportunities to join challenging classes, and the teachers were amazing! What I did notice as a student was that once I dropped out of a magnet program I realized I was being treated a lot differently, and not in a good way by counselors. The counselor I had for my program was very nice and very friendly, always had time to speak to me when I dropped by her office, but once I had a regular counselor it felt as though they were unreachable and was always in a rush or never had time. overall I had a pretty average experience at pinellas county schools.
