I was in the IB program and had an immensely rewarding time in high school. IB students and teachers are great, passionate people to be around.

I am a parent of a 10th grade IB student. We gave been very impressed with the quality of the educators and rigorous, challenging academics. Based on college acceptances of recent graduates, I feel my son will be well - prepared to continue his education at the next level. There are also many opportunities for extracurricular activities like clubs, sports and music. Love the school spirit too!

This school is NOT a "great-school" at all and believe me when I tell you. My child came home crying every day. The school grade may be good , but teacher-student interaction is unsatisfactory. Also, the children in the school, bully . Ive had 3 children attend this school, and they all came back with bad reports. One of my children went to Boca Ciega High , and came back with better and higher spirits then what she has now. I do admit there is alot of school spirit , but they should focus more on academics then sports.

I am currently in the IB program so I cant comment on traditional schooling, but this is an amazing school. I highly recomend IB to anyone considering it. It is challenging but the teachers are very involved and it is difficult to fail as long as one wants to be there. Most of the teachers are alumni so they understand what the students are facing, and most of them are youngso they still remeber what its like to be a student. There is a lot of discussion in class and the teachers treat the students like equals, which makes the students more likely to listen and retain the information being given. There are almost no problems that I have with this school after 2 years of attendence

This is a wonderful school after one year of being in its IB program. It's a lovely program with dedicated teachers. and SPHS has so many fantastic traditions thats it's impossible not to become a true Green Devil at heart. And I adore the History department.
