At first this school will dazzle you with stories about how grand they are and that by having your child attend there, they will have the Ponte Vedra name behind them when applying for colleges and how they are #3 in the state. They are not. According to US News and world report 2013 rankings they are #19 and have a 55.2% college advancement. According to. UNF admissions officer, college admissions no longer looks at ethnicity, high school name or legacy. Their World Language Department is less than stellar with many teachers leaving each year. One would wonder why that department alone. They make policies but then do not follow them, only if it benefits a particular teacher or student otherwise it's just policy. Currently there are four high schools in Duval County with higher rankings. There are many fine teachers and Departments there. If considering the school for your student I would urge you to do some research.

The school does a great job in every respect. The teachers are high quality and committed to the students. The school offers a great variety of courses with a broad range of AP subjects. The business/marketing and science Academies are very good. We had children go to Bolles and Episcopal (both excellent private schools) and we are very happy with PVHS.

This is the best high school in the best school system in the state of Florida. Period. There are virtually zero discipline problems. Parent involvement is high and the administration is amazing.

What a disappointment for a new school. I have several different school systems to compare to in different states. This school has some serious trust issues with students, expecting the bad all the time. Administration is more concerned with image of the school and dress code than it is the students. The Guidance department is the worst i have ever encountered. If you are not an athlete, or going to attend the top two state universities, counselors don't have time for you. Teachers leave much to be desired. Only a handful are good. The foreign language department is terrible with little cohesiveness from year to year. The math department is awful with more emphasis being placed on topics covered than on ensuring students understand the topic. The language arts department isn't much better. Students are very snobby and not welcoming or open. The nicest person at this school is the nurse. Other parents i have talked to feel the same way, but won't speak up for fear of retribution. sad.....

Administration unsupportive, most teachers here act as if they hate their job, parents run the coaches and athletics so if your not on the board forget your child having a fair chance, conflicts of interest in most sports especially cheer. Much better Saint John's Schools to attend wuld not recommend moving here.

Although often targeted and stereotyped, this school has students that are dedicated and hard working. Peer pressure is evident in any high school, but I would say that Ponte Vedra actually has a lower amount than most. The idea that the students of this school are "ponte vedra princesses" is not only untrue, but it is also unfair to those who don't fit this stereotype.

This school is a disaster. The drug and alcohol problem and lack of parental and faculty concern is appalling. It is a school for the priviledged and if you are not your child may face great difficulty and peer pressure to fit in. The lack of respect the students have for authority is troubling.

My daughter faces academic challenges at this school and loves the wide variety of AP classes there is to choose from. All the teachers are great and put learning first!

This school has assigns nearly no homework. The teachers are not at all strict and the dress code is constantly violated by students without any discipline.

Outstanding school. Even though it's brand new, they have a strong curriculum offering, great teachers, excellent sports program, and an awesome arts/drama department. Highly recommend this public high school over private schools.
