Port St. Lucie High School 1

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.

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!

3/4 of the reviews below are extremely biased. I transferred here from LPA becasue LPA has a miserable atmosphere for students due to the almost cocky nature of the students. At PSLHS its more comfortable and diverse. There are almost no gangs at this school at all. The olny 'gangs' we have are fakes and compose of the most pathetic of the pathetic kids. Teachers vary when it comes to dress code but honestly a dress code is not a big deal at all so quit your whining. the real world has a dress code too. the school itself is decent. it is always always up to the student him/herself to do well.

Eh, it's alright I guess. I think they take the dress code more seriously than the students actually showing up to school. I don't understand why it's so important. Some teachers care, but not enough to make a difference for those who don't care of don't act like they care.

It is just not really that good of a school. My daughter hates it. She wants to go to Centennial or Treasure Coast but we're not in the right 'zone' and Centennial has even more strict of a dresscode than PSLHS. The highschool punishes all of the students for the acts of a few unruly students. The school looks like a military and it's not a friendly environment. Basically, all of the exceptional kids go to Lincoln Park Academy, all of the decent kids go to Treasure Coast, most of the okay/decent kids go to Centennial, and Port St. Lucie Highschool is where everyone else goes. It's the catch all school. Coming from Marathon, FL., this school is unacceptable.
