Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
This depends on the teacher. Some are very good, some would rather be anywhere but teaching kids. It would be unfair to make a blanket statement about the school as a whole.

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
As an honor student, my child has one hour of homework a night. More out of the class effort is given to dance and theater productions than academic homework.


Develops character: Neutral


- a
There does not seem to be an honor code or character building program in the school outside of sports and ROTC. Bad behavior and cheating happens in the classroom, some teachers punish, some allude to consequences, and others turn a blind eye.



- a
One of the best public schools in the state. It is nearly impossible to find someone that graduates from there that doesn't go on to do very well in life from doctors and lawyers to police officers and teachers. They aren't that good at football, but they produced Doug Baldwin who went to 2 super bowls back to back. Very good system

Moving to Gulf Breeze for this high school is the biggest disappointment ever. This is a "good old boys" school that has been doing business the same way for way too long. They cater to upper class smart kids and direct them to good colleges. They completely dismiss the other half of the student population-the average kids, minorities (although there are very few), and students with special needs. Athletics here are embarrassing. There are a few good varsity teams with winning records and believe me, those are the ones you will hear about. The majority of the sports, especially boys varsity, are horrible. We just don't win games. And our athletes don't go on to play at the college level from GBHS at the rate they do from surrounding schools. Don't let the test scores fool you! And don't underestimate the importance of diversity, in the students, the classes and the teachers.

Very good teaching staff and programs geared to help the students succeed. My daughter is proud to go to school here.

I would rate this school below average. The administration places more emphasis on the faculty than to the student body. Also, a majority of students in each class period do not bring a book to class, which causes a major class disruption. If the administration would place just as much emphasis on the student and have teachers make students bring books to class every day, whether or not they will need them, then more teachers may want to teach there.



- a
Gulf Breeze High school has really fallen apart these last few years. The athletics departments are a joke. Moreover, the school spends all of its time focusing on FCAT as opposed to actual skills and knowledge students will need in their later years. Its a shame that smart kids from Gulf Breeze have to seek higher learning in the IB program at PHS.

I'm a former student of Gulf Breeze, and I'm now a junior in UF's engineering program. Personally, I felt that the academic programs at Gulf Breeze were not adequate to prepare me for a good school, especially in the areas of math and science. Intelligent students are not really challenged. This was especially evident when I got to UF, and realized what classes other high schools around Florida were offering. I had several great teachers, however I also had a few very bad ones, even in core subjects and supposedly "challenging" classes (AP, etc). Overall there's nothing terrible about the education provided by GBHS--but there's nothing great, either.



- a
I'm a former student of GBHS, and I feel that it fully prepared me academically for my coursework at FSU. It has a great small town environment, and the whole school system was very nurturing for me from kindergarten to graduation. The only thing that Gulf Breeze lacks is diversity, which is a big problem, but that is typical of a small-town school system.
