I was actively involved in JNROTC and recommended that to everyone! We learned the importance of teamwork, hard work and discipline. The teachers were great too! I enjoyed the diverse student population and making friends was easy. Administration was supportive and they encouraged all students to be their best.

Palm Beach Gardens High School is an overall steady academic school. There are various sports activities for students to get involved with it and the sports teams do exceptionally well, especially volleyball, the NJROTC competition team and football. The administration prioritizes safety of the students. Said administration also makes sure the campus is always spotless and students are rewarded for academic achievements. One downside of the school is that the meals served are not the healthiest; the options are not the best. Even though the school has relaxed its standards on dress codes, there is still a a good level of discipline maintained and students are generally well behaved - there are limited problems with bullying. On the other hand, there are a decent amount of altercations among students.
Since it’s only my sophomore year at Gardrns I can only have a say on what I’ve experienced so far. The school is a very big school and has a wide variety of classes and sports to keep students engaged. The only thing they should change is the amount of pep rally’s and out of school activities and fees for clubs. There aren’t that many activities for students to come together there is only homecoming and barely anyone goes to those because of the pricing. There should be Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and many more dances. Maybe even movie nights or a lock in over the summer something to get students engaged. Out of my whole experience at Gardens I think I’ve only been to 2 pep rally’s because that’s how many they have (1 a year) the pep rally’s aren’t really amusing, due to the same acts being done year after year. They should switch it up or invite special guests something to get students curious about what’s happening.
