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!

Ponte Vedra High was overall a great experience as a student. Most of my teachers were friendly and decent instructors. I had a few absolutely incredible teachers, probably about 1-2 a year. Our sports teams consistently win and attend state-wide tournaments. Games tend to be a big event for students. However, I also recommend taking time to see PVHS's theatre productions. The theatre department is growing stronger and stronger each year, and is currently being taught/directed by an accredited (and possibly overqualified) director. All of PVHS's arts departments are stronger than most people give them credit for.
Ponte Vedra High School is great. It's located in St. Johns County, which is the number 1 school district in Florida. The vast majority of students go on to college. The campus is located about 5 miles from the beach and is surrounded by a beautiful nature preserve. The school was built in 2008. It has an Advanced Scholars program, and academy programs in the areas of Biotechnology and International Business & Marketing. Ponte Vedra H.S. has 12 boys and 12 girls varsity sports programs. These include baseball, basketball, cross-country, diving, football, lacrosse, soccer, swimming, golf, tennis, track, wrestling, and volleyball.
