I loved St. Petersburg Collegiate High School. They treated me very nicely. The guidance counselor, Ms. Bell, did a wonderful job navigating us seniors through the college application process with so many emails for scholarship opportunities, and zoom calls with admissions officers from many popular Florida universities. I was also very impressed and felt like I was in good hands throughout the stresses of picking classes, picking majors, signing up for classes, and getting textbooks. The vice principle, Mr. Halstead, did a proficient ordering our textbooks and Ms. Betts really helped the students decide which college classes to take while Ms. Bell ensured each of us received all of our high school credits as well as our AA credits. I was very happy during my sophomore year with the teachers. I honestly had the best education I could've had with these teachers, and I thank them very much for their participation in my journey to college and adult life!

My name is Moses Phan and I attended St. Petersburg Collegiate High School for my junior year and I am eagerly waiting to continue my senior education at this high school. There are so many benefits from attending St. Petersburg Collegiate High School. The main benefit is the ability to take college courses during high school which allows every student to complete their high school and AA degree at the end of senior year. I also love the accelerated pace that the high school requires its students to keep up with since I personally work best in this type of environment. Now, yes, the high school is very hands off during junior and senior year since all classes are taken on St. Petersburg College campus with college professors as instructors and regular college attendants as peers but I believe that this helps students mature before their piers attending traditional high school which allows for a massive head start. All in all, I highly recommend St. Petersburg Collegiate High School.
St. Petersburg Collegiate High School provides the great opportunity to graduate high school with your A.A. degree. On the high school side, the faculty invests their time in getting to know you, ensuring that you are passing, and teaching you life skills for post-graduation -- this is a major highlight of this school that is (from what I've noticed) absent from nearby public high schools. In the past two years, we learned proper professional attire/eating habits/greetings, how to craft a resume, leadership skills, and more.
On the college side, since all of your classes are college courses, you eventually learn how to interact with professors (about grades, assignments, etc.) and how to adapt to college coursework/expectations. You definitely cultivate independence and time management since all responsibilities are placed on you, the student (no direct parent communication allowed with the professors!). Transferring here has been my best major life decision!
