The schools in Gulf Breeze are second to none... a private school experience at a public school price! The faculty & staff are highly qualified, and the administrative team cares deeply for their students, even after the students are long gone! The scores shown above are incorrect: the graduation rate is 98% and the School Score is an A Rating! All in all I wouldn’t go anywhere else...college was a breeze because of my high school experience!

I've grown up in this district, and I'm grateful. But there are definitely some things I'd like to improve. For instance, our bathroom facilities are poor and unkempt. Locks are falling off, and "Student art" has been showcases the the walls for months. My administration also cares more about the wellness of our sports team than the drama department. Our stage is falling apart, and it's made out of wood. Money in our school goes straight to new sports equipment rather than to improve the drama department that hundreds of kids partake in. Overall, my school is above average, but there is definitely room for improvement.
Very friendly teachers and a great learning environment. Teachers are open to offering additional opportunities to help students reach their academic goals. The guidance counselors are very helpful and understanding when it comes to any issues within the home that may be effecting children from struggling at school. Teachers go above and beyond to create a learning environment that is sometimes out of the ordinary to help put students at ease and increase different styles of learning. Principles are very open to ensuring our schools are the safe and have recently added more security especially at our elementary schools which is a blessing.
