My son graduated in May and is excelling in his university work. My daughter is a junior at PCHS and is a student athlete. And believe me, the emphasis is on student first! We are the only A high school in Charlotte County and actually have back-to-back A's--quite an accomplishment. Our faculty and staff are second to none. I can't say enough about our principal and his dedication to the success of all students who attend PCHS---not just the athletes and top performers! Would not ever consider sending my children anywhere else!

I am a former student and PCHS has developed great leadership programs. The students are encouraged to show pride in everything they do.

This place is GREAT! Anyone with good grades and a good behavioral record living in the districts of Charlotte High or Lemon Bay High should certainly consider the open enrollment program, Port Charlotte High is Charlotte County's greatest! We beat our rivals in more ways than one! Our test scores have been 'A's when the competition received 'C's and 'D's, our NJROTC unit, MUN, and Band has out performed those of CHS and LBHS in great margins, we have a much better behavioral record, there is much less cliquishness and bullying than in other schools, and our athletic teams have defeated those of the other schools despite the fact that Charlotte High gets much more money from CCPS for athletics than we do. I'm on the open enrollment program, meaning I live in the district for Charlotte High but choose to attend Port Charlotte High instead because it's much better.

A seven out of ten rating is a very deceiving score. Although the overall test scores weren't the best, the ones who actually tried did really well. AP exam grades are pretty much the highest in the county, and more kids passed than in Charlotte High or other Charlotte County schools. Moreover, our school has amazing extracurricular activities and brilliant teachers. Our MUN team is internationally known, our band is the best in the state, and multiple teachers have won Florida Teacher of the Year and Ms. Ortenzio was a runner-up for History Fair Teacher of the Year. Plus, there is a huge student-based involvement in community service and Pirate Pride. So a seven is simply not accurate enough to describe Port Charlotte High School.

I interviewed at this school and it was very professional and informative. They follow proper procedures and look at references very closely. In my opinion it is a great school. I feel there is a commitment from the administration to promote academics and athletics. The didn't like all the gum on the cement at PCHS. If I had a choice on where to send my child, it would be to Port Charlotte or the other school Lemon

Fantastic Band program, great extracurriculars in terms of expanding student's understanding of international affairs and the need for public / community service. currently has students attending Harvard, George Washington, Duke, Emory, UF, UChicago, McGill U (Montreal Canada), Vanderbuilt, St Andrews, Pricenton, and other top 100 schools. Teachers care about student's work and participation as well as preparing members of the scholastic community for a future in either the academic field or the work force.

Port charlotte high school is a fantastic school. The music and fine arts programs are outstanding and in high regards. the academic standards are challenging enough for the students to enjoy and learn at an advanced level. Parent and community participation has always played a key role in the educational quality that the student recieve.

Too strict on absences. If they dont go, oh well. Dress code is reasonable, but exception for the shirt rule. School Psychologist/ Social Worker, try to find a steady one who will stay a little longer than a year. It's hard on kids when they see one person for the school year then switch to another person the next.
