Anclote has changed my life, some people say that and don't mean it. Anclote has there down falls but so does all other schools. I was a kid with constant failing grades, and once I got to Anclote teachers are willing to stay late just to help you. You are even able to go in their rooms during lunch to get the help you need, I believe that yes some teachers need a reality check but they are trying. How would you do if you went into a classroom with 23 kids all screaming and yelling. Students give teachers such a hard time that makes them wanna be rude towards us. Anclote is the place to send your kids if you want them to get a great education. Yes when your child skips they call you. Your kids will think its unfair that you know there every move there but in the long run its great. Have an open mind when you go into the school don't assume.

I am a senior at this school and could not be happier. I am a transfer from gulf hs and have done so much better at this school. The principal is involved and cares about her students. The teachers are passionate about what they teach and a lot of the give their time for AAA, a free transportation provided tutoring service. The students are a mixed group from surrounding schools but have mended well for the most part.

i am a parent to a sophomore at Anclote and i have had nothing but positive things this school year. My daughter has always been an honor roll student but last year at her old school ( ridgewood) she had horrible grades and low attendance and not once did anyone from the school call me for a conference or anything until the very last week of school they sent a letter saying she might need summer school.. uh yea tell me now thats its too late to do anything.... since the move to anclote she is back on track and actually comes home excited about her day

I am a student at Anclote High and I HATE it here. I would rather go to any other school BUT this one... Students are of very low class and teachers don't care about the students... The only thing positive is the Commercial Arts program here, it's fantastic. But other than that I would not recommend going here.

Have two kids going to Anclote and one coming in as a freshman this year. The school is a good school.. Better than Gulf HS in my opinion. And we are zoned for Gulf. I put my kids in this school because it was new and not overrun by its students like Gulf is. The teachers care here. Its hardly gothic and no where near gang like. Whatever to the other reviews. No one is ever happy!

I attended the Graduation day of the first Graduating class of Anclote High School and on talking with some of the students I could not believe how disappointed they were with the school. It would appear that if your face didn't fit with the Principal, then you didn't. Someone needs to look closely at this.

This was the worst decision I have ever made. I apologize to my son deeply for subjecting him to this poorly unprofessionally ran "school" he is a bright and talented student that graduated a year early and was in the 1st graduating class of this school. He was disgustingly treated by the so call Principal and staff he was only ever reprimanded and never awarded. This school should be closed down before other up and coming students have all their dreams and ambitions crushed . Unfortunately I have to select a star, even though this school deserves zero stars....

this school is an all around bad environment to learn in parents I urge you not to send your kids here if you don't have to. everyone at this school thinks that they are either rich and gods gift to society or they are gang members. these people are extremely rude i am an honors student here and most people know of my intelligence but yet i walk down the halls of this place everyday and say something like "hello, hi, good morning, hows it going, how are you today" and apparently it is too difficult to respond to a basic greeting from a student. i have walked down the halls with a written signed hall pass from a teacher and was stopped by 5 different people and was accused of skipping class and was threatened with detention. this school also frowns upon upper level classes like Physics, Calculus AB, AP Statistics, and AP Chemistry, the in school suspension room is usually full and most of the teachers have one of these not both they either know what their doing or they have a good personality and most are racist. They cancelled the Chess club and decided to put in a Christianity club who say prayers every morning which is not suppose to be done because it is a conflict of interest

Well if you like promiscuous teens, or would like to join a gang, Anclote is the school for you. I attend anclote high school and it is the worst school I have ever been too. The administrators and principals are unfair to students and pick on them. I have never been so unhappy in my life. Please parents, don't send your kids there unless you want to ruin their lives. SHUT ANCLOTE DOWN

Anclote Highschool is exactly the opposite from being a Ghetto school. If you want to see Ghetto, go to Gulf High. Anclote has only been open for one full schoolyear so there is most definately less Gang activity going on there, than other schools. As far as pregnant Teenagers goes, i have only ever seen one Girl pregnant. I go to the school every day to pick up my daughter from practice or I volunteer there. I think it's a great school with very good staff that is willing to go the extra mile.
