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 have attended Lakeside Christian School for eleven years. The k-12 school offers student-led weekly worship, sports, and many other extracurriculars! Because it is a smaller school of about 400 students, the diverse student body can form more friendships. Also, it gives teachers the ability to focus on the individual needs of each student.
I attended the University of South Florida of Saint Petersburg. The location by the marina made the experience of going to school there that much more of a thrill. The benefits and resources of being a student there was fantastic. The tutoring center in the Davis Building and the advantage of having more counselors and adviser's at your disposal were very helpful and guide you to where you want to be once you graduate. The location of the campus is only a few blocks down from downtown, so there is plenty to do!
