While Port St. Lucie High School isn't an A school yet, the school has become a big family to me. I came to Port St. Lucie High School with little friends and a broken heart from recent family issues. Not only did the students at the high school help me become a better person, but the teachers and the administrators as well. The teachers at PSL are caring mentors who will do anything in their power to help you succeed if you extend the hand of course. I could not imagine me going to any other high school than PSL because the school has influenced my character development for the better, helped me grieve properly over my family issue, and presented me with best friends that I know I can count on for a lifetime. Once a Jaguar, always a Jaguar!

I loved the way school events were always set up. Everybody had an opportunity to be involved and through the announcements, everyone knew what was going on throughout the school. I spent high school all 4 years at PSLHS and was involved in cheer leading which was a great experience. Along with keeping up with my International Baccalaureate classes, I was building friendships with all kinds of people and relationships with my teachers in which I realized I could trust with everything. I have so many amazing memories, including ones from football games, baseball games and pep rallies. High School at Port St Lucie High School was definitely the best 4 years of my life.
I believe one of the major things that should change at Port Saint Lucie High School is their Art program, and their choices in Language classes. I'm an Art (General) major and there is only a couple of different classes to choose from. For the languages, there's only one choice- Spanish. I've taken one year of it and although it will give me the credits required for most colleges when I finish my second year, I was hoping to take German, French, or Japanese. The classes aren't very diverse in general and there aren't many courses that give you any college credit or will go towards your education in whatever you're interested in.
