Positive overall experience with both children at PCHS. Some incredibly excellent teachers, however, some of the teachers with tenure seem to checked out prior to their actually retiring. Excellent school spirit!

The amount of pride and spirit at my school is unmatched in comparison to any other high school in our district. The staff encourages involvement- whether it be in sports, clubs/organizations, and even reminding students to reach out for assistance when necessary. The only thing I wish to change would be the overall appearance of the environment. I think having the creativity and talent of the students involved in the fine arts programs would give their hard work attention and liven up the place we spend the most time at.
Port Charlotte High School is a school I attended for my Senior year, I just moved down from Wisconsin so the changes from each school were quite apparent. Port Charlotte High School I believe is a good school, the teachers are nice and understanding, the schoolwork is very easy to manage and once you get used to the school you easily can find your way around. Although there are many things the school can improve on, which includes enforcing the rules for the most part. The school dress code for example is rarely enforced for the students to follow, sure they say not to wear hats or anything but in the end students still end up wearing hats, although in the end there's no repercussions for those who break the rules. The administration needs to try and show the students that the rules must be followed otherwise there will be consequences if they're not. In the end, I did like my stay at Port Charlotte High School but until the rules are enforced this school has much to work on.
