Plant High School Reviews
We moved from Maryland and I was surprised at the complete lack of technology in the classrooms of this top-rated school. The facilities are lackluster and the is little course variety. All are indicative of the lack of investment in Florida schools and more focus on the virtual courses, which are great. Teachers and staff have been good overall.
Great school they favor athletes more especially football players but it’s okay most are failures at life bc all they do is smoke anyways
Almost outstanding in every single way, except for some of the facilities are aging and there is very little diversity.
Good school and parents doesn’t require to worry about children when they are in school. Teachers and counsellor are helpful and always provide required guidance for students to excel in academics and college admission process.
Academically, Plant is a great school, as the selection of AP courses is great, and teachers are thorough and helpful. However, the school is not very helpful with dual enrollment registration, the sports programs are rather cutthroat, and the overall culture is largely one of privilege. The main sports teams are well funded, but the school does not financially support more academic/STEM-based opportunities well, such as the Speech & Debate or Robotics teams. However, there is a large selection of clubs, and making your own is straightforward. Because it is a gigantic school, it can be easy to get lost academically and struggle without being noticed, and it can be hard to find out about opportunities available to because it is difficult for staff to reach out to you individually when there are so many students. That said, the guidance counselors and teachers have been enthusiastic about assisting me when I reached out to ask questions.
Great School Spirt! Academily positive leadership opportunities . Has made my path to great things to come in my life.
It's very easy to get your GPA very high and get into a good university. They will allow you to take any AP class that you want and it'll easily boost your GPA. The teachers are 50-50 some are great and some are complete trash it all depends on who you get.
It was an good experience. I’d like to see more praise given to academics students and not as much to football players.
Plant high school is the best public school offered in the district. Your education experience is up to you and how serious you take it. The majority of teachers a well qualified, although some won’t teach and it’s up to you to learn it. The only thing that is deceptive about Plant the schools ranking- the education from school sometimes isn’t enough and many students rely on tutors to learn. Thus, the test scores arent 100% reflected on the teachers abilities.
It’s a good school, best if you’re ready to get involved in clubs and after school activities and communities.
Egocentric and doesn't really pay attention to the fine arts programs all that much. Also Plants success is due to wealthy families being able to pay for tutors and many extra curriculars.
I loved everything at Plant and how they try to work with every kid to make sure they have a chance in life.
What i like about my school is that the staff always help the student become the best they can be. Everyone is very friendly from the counselors, teachers,etc.. I love my school
Plant is designed to help affluent, white, college-bound students. If your child is in the minority due to race, disability, or low income, you will get very little help. Much of the touted academic success is due to private tutoring outside of class. During class, many students are absent due to sports or activities, and those at school are looking at their phones or vaping in the bathrooms or even in the hall. "Good" students use drugs outside of school. Parents are vicious with teachers, demanding good grades in order to keep students eligible for extracurriculars. It is a high-stress, unfriendly environment.
It was a incredible experience! I truly believe Plant High School prepared me to excel in college. They surround you with teachers who truly care about your future and to teach you about the subject. Also, Plant High School has the best of the best students and you are always competing with them in education, sports, or art. I love my 4 years here and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I have made so many connections with friends and teachers. I think Mr. Bush (principal) and the administrators are welcoming and trying to start a relationship with the students and help them in their lives too.In all honesty, I don’t think Plant should anything. There’s a reason why we are 1 in our county for education and sports. I will always bleed that black and gold (school’s colors). “PLANT PLANT PLANT”!
I liked that plant prepared you for college. What needs to change is the diversity in the school. Unfortunately, not a lot of culture was present within the high school. Diversity is very important in a school community, what students can learn from other cultures and learning from the struggles that come with these cultures can help a community come together. Thinking of ways that can prepare students for a more diversified future rather than keeping them in a narrow hall way with no form culture or pushing to understand culture.
my principal's list gifted child moved from a 'zoned 8th' grade to freshman year with a 'standard transition,' and he didn't get his freshman schedule for 9 weeks into the school year; this set him up to fail from the beginning, which spiraled into major stress and $120k medical bills, resulting in him missing the year, failing every class, and having to move schools, repeating 9th grade. Way to go Plant. The stain and stress on our family is incomprehensible.
