I graduated from Gardens in 2012 and it was getting worse and worse as the years went on. Many people think that it is a good school because it is new but it is so crowded and the teachers are not helpful.
My school is Palm Beach Gardens High which my grandson started this year. He can't wait to get up to go to school now. Who thought high school would be so easy? The students and teachers are friendly, helpful and make everyone feel special. In this day and age we need more schools like this to encourage students.
I graduated from PBGHS and now my Step-Daughter is a student there. I believe that there is and has always been problems there. I remember the year before I was going to go there, there was a riot in the lunch room between two rival gangs. I was worried about going there but if you stay with the "good" crowd and stay out of trouble your going to do great. The teachers I had were excellent and prepared me for college. Great atmosphere and the new school looks great.
I think Gardens is an awesome school i havent attened there yet but i want to become a student as the year of 2011 proceeds... if i make it in i will be a freshman also to me Gardens have some goals i can achieve minus the drama that goes on i have heard good things from my sister and close friend so can any one else tell me how is PBGHS really acheiving?
I am very dissappointed that my child has been hanging with the wrong crowd in this school & their's illegal activity going on during school hours. I complained twice & thank goodness for the assistant principal. Very helpful! We are watching her like a hawk...but otherwise academically she excells with a 3.5 gpa.
i attend this school and i am very HAPPY to be there my gread level is getting up there thank u gardens high school.
PBGHS gave me an excellent start in my academic and professional life. The teachers truly care for their students, and go above and beyond the call of duty. The school leadership works tirelessly to ensure the best environment and education for all students and staff. I had an amazing experience, and will never forget my time there.
While we miss Dr. Prince, Larry Clawson has come in and done a great job. The new school is fantastic and the school spirit is still high....
i love gardens itsthebest high school thsat hepls you pass and graduate
This school a great, well-rounded, high school experience. The Magnet programs are awesome.
Going to Palm Beach Gardens High School was the best decision i ever made. The school is excellent, and they made my transition from 8th grade to 9th grade very easy. I am currently in the magnet program, which made it a lot easier to make friends and such. But i am now in the 11th grade, and i still love it. It is a place i enjoy and i could not see myself anywhere else. I would defianatly advise all parents to not only place there children in the magnet but too let them get involved, because the overall high school experience is not the same if you don't. Gardens is defianatly the best high school in Palm Beach. We have the most school spirit in the world, we are the only school that cheers when we loose a game. This is place to send you child. Go Gators!!!
I think Palm Beach gardens high is one of the best school there is because the students give their all into into there work.We also have great teacher in a wonderful principal we are glad to have him!!!!!!! ~a proud student~
A Student, an Athlete, and a Fan. This school is the place to be. It is an atmosphere that is unique in the schools dioversity, and allows students to strive. I have many friends that feel really sorry that they did not enroll in Gardens
I was excited about starting my junior year at PGHS, what a mistake. I had just moved to PBG from Oregon. The kids are judgemental and it's a very crowded school. I didn't feel like the teachers had enough time for every student and overall, I didn't feel comfortable. I was hesitant to swith to Dwyer but I'm so glad I did. I've made some of the best friends and I'm getting an excellent education. It's not a crowded school and the kids are excepting of everyone. Race, gender, sexual orientation.. whatever. I love Dwyer high school and our new principal has only made it an even more enjoyable experience.
My daughter is finishing up her 2nd year there and my son enters in the fall. The leadership and teaches have been fantastic. The school spirit is great and I can't way to see what the new school look like. 'A great school only gets better....'
My 9th grader is in the PreMed Magnet Program. The teachers are outstanding, available and they extend their own hours to be of help to their students. Dedicated!
This school has been amazing! Both of my children had always been in gifted programs through middle school and this high school gave them plenty of challenges to keep them interested! The magnet programs present the kids with many outstanding opportunities and experiences. The school spirit is unprecedented! It can't help but draw the kids in! Hats off to the principal and all of the wonderful, involved teachers who really seem to care!
This is an outstanding school. The school is very diverse, but there is a real direction for the school. The principal is young and energetic, and has drastically improved the school over the last three years. My kids have had the best experiences there, and I would recommend the school in a heartbeat.
If your child can go to any other school, let them. going to gardens highschool was the biggest mistake of my life. I wish I would have taken my mom's advice and gone to suncoast.
Good sports magnet, but selection process is in question. Medical Magnet provides great instruction, and it has many required extracurricular activities. Lenient dress code, but somethings are enforced about it while most are ignored. Good Principal, works well with what he has. FCAT has improved, the cost being regular classtime focuses on it rather than the class itself. Finally, While behaviour during school is generally acceptable, Extracurricular and sports have a spotty record. Good school, but if you have a strong reader that wants in depth subjects, try suncoast.If you want to improve your student, go here.
