Polk State College Collegiate High School Reviews

I love attending Polk State Collegiate High School! The small faculty and student body are very connected, which makes my school very unique compared to larger schools. Collegiate offers many clubs and activities, including Interact Club that I am involved in. My favorite part about my school is that I became a full-time college student as early as age 16. Receiving an AA degree at the same time as my High School diploma is very rewarding. Not only did I begin my college career much earlier than most students, my education was completely free, which is definitely one of the best aspects of my school. I will always be thankful for the opportunities Collegiate has offered me.

Polk State Lakeland Collegiate High School is the perfect place to go if you are looking for an accelerated high school experience. The teachers are understanding and want to see you do well in their classes. Administration is welcoming, ready to answer any question, and doesn't treat you like a child. It's a fast pace school where everyone is doing their own thing, it can be difficult to get to know the high school students. This best way to know your student body is to attend functions and join clubs. Besides the lack of connection between most students, this school is much different from traditional high school. If you can focus and get work done, you'll definitely go far.
CHS is an amazing deal for anyone who is willing to put a lot of work into their classes. As a student you are capable of getting your 2 year degree before you even graduate high school... and it's free! One of the biggest problems at CHS is either your professor is terrible or beyond amazing, there is no in between.
