Palm Harbor University High School Reviews

I'm very glad that I chose to attend this school because of the medical program I took part in. I was able to compete in HOSA throughout my years which expanded my knowledge and awareness to a lot of different fields and events involving medicine. I was also taught a lot of valuable skills through the program, whether it was at clinicals or in class. I earned my CNA certification recentley through this amazing program, allowing me to work in hospital and/or geriatric settings at an age as young as 17 years old!
Review Palm Harbor University High School
PHUHS is a wonderful school, with IB, Medical, and Traditional programs. It made Newsweek's "America's Top High Schools 2015" as number 302. The administration is responsive and always there to help when a student has a question. The librarian is very devoted and runs the media center beautifully. This dedication is also shown in the majority of teachers at the school. The diversity is low, but that is the only negative aspect of the school. There is a multitude of tutoring opportunities and clubs for after school. The sports are numerous and dedicated as well. Most of our sports teams go on to districts. Palm Harbor University High School is one of the reasons why I moved to Palm Harbor. I'm glad I am able to attend such an amazing school.
Palm harbor high school has been such an incredible school, and has provided me with the education, friends and resources I've needed to be successful! The campus is very safe and pretty! Everyone in the administration is very helpful! I've enjoyed my experience here for the past 4 years!
