Two of my children have attended this school, one graduated and in his first year of college, my youngest graduating this year, already accepted to two colleges. I cannot express how much the teachers care and support the children every step of the way. This comes from an amazing principal Mr. Vigue who every day rain or shine is out in the drive shaking students hands as they enter and waves to the parents as they pass. He also sends weekly updates to the parents. This is a high school! I am blessed to have had my children have such an amazing high school experience with a staff and administration who truly care for the success of their students.
I have twin daughters who attended for four years, graduating 2015. It was rocky at first fundamental just started but the school kept strong with Mr. Vue, best principal in Pinellas County High Schools, staying on top the school policies and procedures and everything in between. What a great A school it became, my giris were motivated to participate in ROTC, as well as other school activities. It has great caring teachers and staff. If you are looking for and excellent choice for High School look no further, Boca Ciega High School is right on top. Check it out take it from a mom that graduated not one but two in 2015!!! Your child deserve a better education!!
It is an unacceptable excuse for a school. They have gotten way out of hand with the control and discipline. They suspend students who can't afford the requirements for the dress code. Also, they disrespect their students.
This school has taken a turn in the right direction thanks to a real leader with solid ideas for overall success and supporting both teachers and student achievement, a fine balance that is hard to do. After working at this school with asst principals that support teachers, advocate for students and have a positive attitude, I am left with nothing but good feelings and memories. Yes, the students can be challenging, but just about every adult there IS constantly working to improve their craft. Teaching is hard work, if you don't believe so, go and try it for one day. Of course you have to have a 4-year degree, pass all of the certifications, have determination and get paid less than most other studied professions. Boca Ciega HS teachers and admin do it day after day and it shows.
I have a child in the medical magnet program and se really likes it and so do I, I have seen great changes in her. However I do not care for the AP o the program, she is non listening and rude. I believe her disiplin actions are a joke.............
