Palm Harbor University High School Reviews

PHUHS was an amazing school! I was in the Medical Program which was apart of the Center for Wellness and Medical Professions. This was an amazing program to ready me for what I wanted to do in life which is become a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist. Palm Harbor University also prepared me for all things in the real world. This school taught me responsibility, time management, and different ways to balance all extra curricular activities along with all my school work. The one thing I would love to see change is the diversity. This is a predominately white area meaning this is a predominantly white school. I understand that most programs at this school are lottery based so maybe the problem lies in that system but every school needs diversity and that’s definitely where this school lacks. All in all, I wouldn’t change schools for anything!

For starters, I didn't spend much time in this high school since I was enrolled in college program starting my junior year, but from the little bits and pieces I gathered, I have to agree with everyone else who reviewed this that Palm Harbor University High School is a great school, and i'm fairly sure its one of the best in Pinellas county. They offer a select number of AP and IB courses and a numerous amount of clubs and honor societies. They even have their own medical program! Staff is often great and is willing to help. Can't say much about the teachers since I didn't speak to most, but the ones I encountered were a either really experienced or completely new to their job and the school. These qualities don't excuse it for some faults that I heard about: If you needed help over coursework, then you will have a hard time getting it. Overall, if I came here my Freshman year, then I would have taken any opportunity this school offers.
Palm Harbor University High School is a great place for students to achieve academic success in the classroom and outside in the real world. The teachers and staff established a safe environment for learning and there are many resources for help in your classes, as well as your personal life. The campus is very clean and well kept up to date with its state of the art facilities. PHUHS offers many sports for students to engage in physical activity, with great coaches and athletes. Many state championships have been won across multiple sports. The administration and staff make sure all students have opportunities and extracurricular activities to participate in. PHUHS offers many after school clubs for those who are interested in to keep busy and enjoy extra time at school.
