Suncoast is a very difficult school, and will definitely challenge it's students, regardless of their program. Students form a strong community with the small class size and welcoming student body. Suncoast creates lots of opportunities for volunteering and community work. The classes are extremely rigorous, and the councilors often do not adjust the rigor of a student's schedule when asked. While some teachers are great at their jobs, others abuse the fact that their students will work hard regardless of what they teach, and the students end up with lots of meaningless busywork.

It was an amazing experience at Suncoast Community High school. The teachers are incredible and offer tutoring and help outside of the classroom. There are study groups , clubs of all kinds and definitely a family atmosphere. It is a vigorous schedule, especially like being in the MSE - math, science and engineering program like I was in. In the end , my SAT scores put me in the top percentage of test takers with a score that high. I truly lived the High school dream!
Suncoast offers a very cut and dry experience of high-level classes and difficult programs. The student body is very active and organized events very often, almost every two weeks. However, after speaking to many teachers and even the principal, what is really holding back Suncoast is the school's administration. Numbers unfulfilled promises, needlessly strict rules, and arbitrary policies have placed an artificial limit on this school's teachers. The treatment of IIT and IB as "failout" programs leads to many apathetic students stuck in classes they have no interest in sabotaging themselves so they don't have to continue electives they find disinteresting. The whole point of the school programs is to define a set of parameters for students to follow to maintain their precedence in the program, yet the administration either doesn't respect these limits or misuses them for arbitrary policies. Great school with great teachers, held back by the counselors and AP's.
