They need a better program for Basketball, be more positive, better coaches, more rigid for the team, you have a great team, but have to show more for the community to get involved, reach out and talk more about this sport, BASKETBALL! !!

<|(READ THIS)|> The teachers do horrible job at supporting and teaching the students. The School as a whole is more focus on a harsh unfair dress code than educating the students. It's not what the students are wearing that's the problem, it's actually very distracting by taking the students out of class sending them to office, taking them away from their learning time. The teachers have to understand that every job does not always require a strict dress code such as photographers, software engineers, writers, fashion designers, publicist. The school thinks that making the dress code more stricter is going to stop the bomb threats they've been getting recently but it's not. Maybe if they were more involved with the children and the parents that are apart of the school community and stop being effortless and lazy, re-evaluate their teachers, make the learning environment fun and intriguing and, get involved with there students more then maybe the school will raise up to excellent expectations, but that's just my opinion. Port St.Lucie Highschool in general is the WORST school in this Port St. Lucie district. It's been rated an F school for quite awhile now. The school itself has poor math scores due to poor math teachers who spend more time focusing on if there students are wearing a "button up collar shirt" or "a turtle neck" in 90 degree Florida weather . The school has been on the news several time and lock downs because of many bomb threats. There's many officers roaming the halls. There's a lot of drug exchange at this. A teacher/coach was also arrested there for fornicating with one of the students that attend the school. The school doesn't really have windows so exactly looks like an old prison. For all those concerned parents looking for a good school for their child this school is not for you. I highly recommend moving out of this district into Martin county that's where the best schools are if you can't move away from this district try your best to enroll your child into Treasure Coast High they're a decent school.

They're very ineffective and they're lazy and boring. Just look at the schools test scores it will explain the teachers ineffective and lack of eagerness to teach which shows through the students

Amount of homework: Disagree

The teachers don't care about education they really don't. They care more about what you have on regardless of what's in your mind.

I am a current student at psl high. I can honestly say that psl was the WORST school I've ever been to. Reasons.... The teachers don't seem to care about the students , the bathrooms are disgusting, the lunches aren't always great , their is no security on campus and our level of protection is extremely low. Have of the students at this school cannot pass the fcat, I don't see teachers giving all the help the can. I am a new student here and I will be a senior 2014-2025 . I came from down south hoping to attend a better school. Psl does not qualify with my intentions at all. I will NOT be graduating from psl instead I will travel back down south to graduate from my previous school.

I believe this is a good school. the JROTC program is wonderful. This program has kept my son from becoming involved with the wrong crowd. I am grateful to all the staff who run this.

I think the school has just escalated into a bunch of people who no longer care. The students don't want to learn and the teachers don't want to teach. Both students and teachers do the minimal effort necessary. There are the select few teachers and student who try, but besides that the school has no hope. We're rated as one of the lowest schools and no body is trying to do anything about it. That's why it won't change and no one will be satisfied.

It's pathetic they call me at work cause my sons not wearing a belt. I mean really. Dean said it's the dress code, I said Ive seen kids dress in mix match outfits logos girls shorts boys underwear showing and he said it's like getting a speeding ticket if u get caught then u do. Well mr. Dean walk around ur school open ur eyes

This school is ok. Pretty much all the teachers only care about dress code. PSLHS has the most strict dress code system in st.Lucie county! Other than that, a lot of teachers have bad attitudes and and they learn from you more than we learn from them. This needs to be changed! It is always really hot in the class rooms and there are almost no windows! It looks like a prison! 1/4 teachers are nice and 3/10 teachers actually teach us something!

It's not THAT bad but it's not exactly good. It needs to be completely knocked down and rebuilt. There is not even one window in the whole school. What if there was a fire? How would we all get out, when we have fire drills the hallway is so packed that you can't even move. It is INFESTED with millipedes and it is absolutely disgusting! The students aren't that nice and there is one teacher that falls asleep during class. The dress code is ridiculous! The bad kids wear whatever they want and don't get in trouble but the good kids have to go along with the dress code because they don't want to chance getting in trouble. So, pretty much, the good kids have a HORRIBLE dress code! Whereas, the bad kids, wear whatever they want, whenever they want. This school needs some major changes!
