I truly enjoyed my experience at PVHS! I am sure that having attended PVHS definitely increased my standing when it came to college admissions! I continue to return as an alumnus as a volunteer. The campus is beautiful and the staff and faculty are great! PVHS offers a very large selection of AP courses and target driven curriculum. Outside of academics, PVHS offers a multitude of extracurricular options for students varying from sports to theater.

Ponte Vedra High School is relatively new, but extremely competitive. They have an amazing dance and cheer team, and an amazing HOPE teacher. The classrooms are big, new, and very clean. The restrooms are also very clean, and the campus is organized and spread out so the growing amount of students do not feel cramped. I recently attended the Freshman Orientation and the dedication the administration and upper class-men put into making the freshmen feel welcome is amazing! One thing I would like to change is the fact that it is somewhat difficult to find a seat in the cafeteria, and most usually end up sitting outdoors. In fall the weather is very nice, but leaves much to be desired during the winter-time. Some staff members are a bit unfriendly, but most are simply spectacular! Overall I highly recommend Ponte Vedra High School, and am looking forward to a great 4 years there!
I had a great experience at Ponte Vedra, however it is worth noting that I know many people who did not. In many cases the teacher you get determines whether you will succeed or fail in that class, and you don't have a say on which teacher you get. Also, do NOT rely on the counselors for ANYTHING, many of them do little to help, which isn't their fault as they have so many kids to "counsel". Overall this school is FANTASTIC and these are the only real flaws that I encountered in my four years!
