Poinciana High School was a decent school to go to. I really liked most of my classes. The campus is big. I felt safe in school. Teachers and faculty sometimes listened to their students. It was well organized. I feel the school needed better more lunch options. I also felt like there wasn't enough clubs to join in the school. The turn over rate for teachers was noticeable. The fact that there was teachers coming and going I felt the education wasn't as good at it should have been. I feel like some in some classes I didn't even learn but there were some that were really good. In all I am glad that I graduated with my High School Diploma!

Parents are usually scared for their kids to enroll in poinciana high school, because of the people and the reputation it has had in the past. But its not the school to determine how your kids high school life will be like it's what the kids make of it. My high school years at poinciana high school was amazing!
It Is A Very Interesting That Is Very Diverse.. The Teachers Really Want To See You Progress! This School Has Shown Me How To Be Ready For The Real World When I Will Meet People From All Backgrounds! I Wish I Could Go To This School All Over Again. I Did Experience Two Different Principals , But The New Principal Took His Job With Dignity. I Would Recommend People To Attend This School & Give It A Try !
