My son just graduated from TCHS and his entire academic team was awesome. The IEP worked very hard with him and we are very appreciative.

Treasure Coast High School offers great programs for students. Our son attends this school and has had mostly positive experiences. His teachers are wonderful and his guidance counselor is very attentive when needed.

I recently graduated from Treasure Coast High School as part of the class of 2013. Let us begin with the very lack of professionalism coming from the staff, they show little respect to students or parents alike, claim credit for others (teachers/students) work, and whenever a problem arises blame it on a teacher or student. Guidance Counselors are never reachable and dont do their job. During my senior year they notified roughly 60 students they did not have a specfic credit they needed to graduate 3 weeks before graduation. Mind you this being after they supposedly did credit checks at the first week of senior year. Finding a good teacher is a rarity in this school, In total i believe i had five my whole way through highschool. They fail to use the skyward system to keep up with students grades, and generally just have a lack of care for their job. This school simply represents the laziness in our education system nowadays. How can we expect students to care when the majority of staff and teachers do not. To anyone reading this review, I strongly recommend you send your child else where. This is coming from a student who played sports, was in all honor classes, and has their AA.

I have two children attending this school and this past school year was the worst ever! In both of my kids classes there were teachers who were absent for most of the year due to their parents illness for one and the other one, I have no idea. Then you have some teachers who do not use Skyward! They do not have any accountability and use another site or none at all. When I called to complain about it, all of a sudden they would populate my child's grade and then when new semester would begin this same teacher would not use Skyward or would tell me that she had not given many grades that 9 wks. I agree with previous post that the school has gone down since Ms. Roberts left 2 yrs ago. Oh and try getting ahold of a counselor. Good luck! I hope this year will be much better. I do want to say that there are some teachers that are awesome but unfortunately they are not the norm. I do have to give kudos for Ms. P_ _ _ _ who is a guidance counselor and is exceptional!! She gets 5 stars from me!! She is quick and resolves issues quickly! Love her! BTW, my kids are both in Honor classes.

This is my third review I have inputted regarding my opinion on TCHS. I am assuming someone does not want other parents to be aware of what has happened to me. My child loves the school but as a parent I couldn't be more disappointed. My child was taught by 3 substitutes for the year. How can a child learn off ditties, how can a child develop good study habits or note taking skills when an actual certified teacher is not present. Very afraid my child will not be prepared for college.

Some of the teachers are awesome. Some belittle the students and talk down to them. Could you refresher course on how to deal with students. These aren't the everyday kids that give trouble either. Step up and be that teacher, give credit to the ones that due make the difference. School however very disorganized since Ms. Roberts left.

Very disorganized , unprofessional,rude people at this place.Very sad to think we citizens pay to hire unqualified people to intimidate parents and their children. No accountability from anyone there.

This school has an amazing AICE program with teachers that are second to none. Majority of the AICE teachers are sure the students get a quality education that is rigorous and challenging. My only qualm is with much of the administration and the librarians. In my opinion TCH needs to be more school spirited. When walking on campus a student can feel as if they're on a community college campus instead of a high school one. A few of the administration are a bit rude to students (myself included). The librarians are the same way; neither of them help students find what they are looking for and they kick people out for having an empty water bottle on the table. Currently, I am a junior in the AICE program at TCH and had the administration been better, this school would unequivocally be rated five stars.

Overall happy with the school. Wished that my daughter' s teacher would have recommended moving her up in her math since she already knew all of it. Had mentioned this at the beginnning of the school year but didn't get anywhere. More fun activities for the students since they work hard. Thank you to all the wonderful teachers who are under paid for what they go through. 'Thank you' for teaching you all make a difference in our childrens lives.

I have been attending Treasure Coast for 3 years. I have watched so many improvement in teachers, teaching, and in the atmosphere, this year being the first class of true Titans the spirit is at all time high. There will always be room for improvement. Some teachers care and others just dont give diddly squat whether you come or not, while others are there for you on and off the feild persay. Sometimes we know the Dress Code Nazis can be a little to much, but when you got a problem they are there. The teachers could be better instead of 'your in honors you should know this' sometimes we just need a little refresher. Some need to turn on their lights for a day and wake some kids up, while others need to teach. But this school is a great school with a lot of potential.

I adore this school! On my first day, I was completly terrified... The school was so big compaired to my last one. When I walked into the Cafeteria, Mama H said 'We are a family!' At first I didnt believe her, but as time passed, what she said became a reality. I am a Freashman otherwise known as 'Freashmeat' and I'm extreamly pleased to tell my Centennial friends that I am a proud Titan!

I have found that some, not all, of the teachers and some of the faculty are not very helpful when dealing with students. They expect the students to follow rules but do not follow their own rules. Many of the teachers are not motivated to teach and would rather criticize the student and make them feel poorly about themselves rather than reach out a helping hand. Motiviation is the key to success and I the teachers should focus on that thought.

TCHS is great. I especially like the AICE program. The administrators are always ready to help you in whatever issues you are facing. But one of its downs includes the infamous Culminating Project. (Everyone hates The Culminating Project). While i like TCHS, i think the school could do more to assist seniors and even juniors in preparing for college.

I'm about to be a sophmore this year. This school is amazing. Like all the schools in Port St. Lucie, the teachers are a little careless. Other than that, I feel like I'm in a very safe environmet here.

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.
