I worked for food service in one of Flagler County middle schools for 11 years . I also had 3 grandchildren that Graduated from Palm Coast High School . I am very proud of both school and students . I watched students accomplish so many wonderful things .on their journey .It is a large campus with a very diverse group of students ,coming from all levels of the economy . The pride they showed in their work together ,really had no limits .

They allow bigotry amongst the teachers, do not discipline teachers for discriminating, and do not treat all students equally.

Loved attending. Really prepared me for college. Wish they kept block scheduling though.

My daughter attends this school. They care more about dicipline than actual academics. They jump at the sight of wrong doing, but when it comes to transferring schools or classes to help the students, it'll either never happen or may take months and plenty of phone calls.

FPC is an amazing school. The teacher are strict but they get the job done. I am in band, and love it. The director gets us where we need to be, and we always have fun doing it. The (Pre) IB program is challenging but teaches you time management. FPC definitely made my freshmen year an amazing year. I am pretty sure that all four years that I am at FPC will be amazing up until 2012, the year that i graduate in.

I graduated from FPC in 2007, but while I was a student there was always an abundance of class choices, the teachers were really nice, and administration always made sure that they made an effort to talk to every student. To me, the school made growing up better, and there are days I wish that college was more like high school.


Posted August 21, 2008

fpc's awesome! good environment, strong-willed but caring teachers, good extracurricular activities and majority are well-rounded students. As of now, I'm enjoying my freshman year and I'm expecting more..

School has many great programs and extracirriculars that many other schools do not offer. Some courses could be taught better, but many of the honors and AP teachers do wonderful jobs. My daugther goes to this school and she has a good time attending it. She's involved in many of the activities that the school offers. Great school in general.

Horrible teacher, students can teach themselves better!

Posted November 17, 2005

I've had two children in FPC for the past three years. Though there are many dedicated caring teachers and other staff, this school has quite a few negative features. Classes are frequently interrupted for trivial reasons. Dress code is inconsistently enforced. Plus, the school is just too big and too crowded.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted August 21, 2005

I personally think this is a great school. Although it's a bit crowded...my kids enjoy going to school everyday. I've never seen this sort of reaction from them.

Fpchs got a 'd' for for the 2004 schools year. The school is overcrowded.

The quality of academic programs varies on the quality of the teachers. It seems to be a challenge to keep good teachers in our area. There are many art, drama, and music programs available they have a full building devoted to music and theatre. Parental involvement is unfortunately slim to none.
—Submitted by a former student


Posted April 12, 2005

This school is very over crowded. They are lacking great teachers. There is some good teachers in the honors program, but if your student is not in this program then you are stuck with teachers that have business degrees and have picked up teaching. Some know what they're doing but many do not. The school has many activities for students and offers a lot of sports and clubs.

About the tests


Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
