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 High School is notorious for their academic rigor within the IB program, dedicated to helping students succeed. Teachers and students alike have helped to prepare me for attending higher education. My IB Psychology. IB/AP English teachers, and my IB Theory of Knowledge teachers have all had a tremendous impact on my academic career and have inspired me to apply the knowledge I learned within their classes into my goals for future education, as I aspire to enroll in the University of Florida and study Psychology. I have been provided with the resources I needed that have helped develop my academic confidence. However, in all my admiration for select few teachers, I still foster a sense of disdain for the focus on student mental health by the staff (apart from select teachers). There is little to no support for student mental health; students are treated poorly, and in a highly competitive stressful academic environment, I believe there is room for this to change.
I love being in Suncoast High. I feel so connected to and accepted by everyone there. My class of 2020 is like one big family and I am so grateful that I have that. The teachers and administration are always here to help and they make us all feel included. The academics are impeccable. My sister is now a student at MIT because of this school. I have learned so much in Suncoast and I feel so prepared for college. I would not have wanted to go anywhere else, Suncoast is the best of the best!
