My son is in his Senior year at Suwannee High. While it could definitely use some better teachers, the school has made significant progress academically since being under the current Principal Mr. Roush. He is a leader and he runs the school. He does not let the school run him. My son has never had a problem with being beat! The person who posted that beatings occur at a high rate at Suwannee High is false. If you take honors or AP classes, you are going to most likely have a good teacher. My son had three great English Teachers while at Suwannee High, Amy Hendry, Julie Hocutt and Audrey Marshall. I highly recommend them!

Florida Department of education statistics. civil rights data, and public records information verify that this school and school district has the highest rates of student beatings (corporal punishment) in the entire state of Florida. The incidents happening at this school are truly alarming.

As a student of the school I'm looking for a way to transfer. The school is completely chaotic. The teachers do not care. They don't even try to help. I had a 3.8 GPA until my sophomore year, I got placed and started FAILING. Now I'm making the classes up on FLVS, I got a 4 in my english class at the school. I have a 96 now. This schools a joke!

As a parent of a child with ADHD, this school is ill prepared in dealing with these types of children. My child is on the 504 plan and it has NOT been followed as of yet. He was transferred into the opportunity school and is doing better, but still not great. I found out recently that the teachers at the opportunity school had no idea that my son was on the 504 plan as they were never advised by guidance. This school needs to get their act together and realize that they are there for our children!!!!

I only give the school a 2 star rating because I've seen an attempt by the school board this year to improve the school. Here's hoping the new principal will work to create a friendlier, more student centered environment. My child compares the school to a prison--drab and unfriendly. Upper level teachers are fairly good.

As a former student who just graduated from college I will say that SHS has the potential to be a great school. If students work hard then the teachers will see this and help them to flourish. The upper level classes have great teachers especially the advanced placement classes. I have at no time felt that my education at SHS has been a hinderance, it prepared me enough so that I was able to graduate with honors from a major university.

I would say that as a student who attends this school it would at best get a 3 out of 5 stars. While the teachers are fairly o.k, the classrooms are often overcrowded and there is not a high standard of technology in the school... Also there is the problem of occasionally getting picked on... I give my school a 2 out of 5 stars.
