Polk County Schools Reviews
Polk County Schools is an amazing place for students to learn what the want to do for the rest of their life. Personally speaking I am impressed with the construction program at Polk County High School. The students are building houses and gaining money for the program so students can build more than just a small bird house. The students are learning what its like to be an actual carpenter. The carpentry teacher started a summer program where the students can work and get paid by learning on the job.
I've spent all four years at PCHS, and I've had a very positive experience with the upper level classes I take, although I wish there were more AP classes available to the students, and that more time and energy were put into informing the underclassmen about college readiness.
Polk County High School is one of the best places you'll ever come across. It's small but so diverse and welcoming. The staff is wonderful and so caring about you. The students are welcoming and it's not hard at all to find your friend group. There are so many different clubs and organizations that you are bound to find what you are interested in and what your passions are. You are very likely to succeed at a place like PCHS.
