I'm very glad that I chose to attend this school because of the medical program I took part in. I was able to compete in HOSA throughout my years which expanded my knowledge and awareness to a lot of different fields and events involving medicine. I was also taught a lot of valuable skills through the program, whether it was at clinicals or in class. I earned my CNA certification recentley through this amazing program, allowing me to work in hospital and/or geriatric settings at an age as young as 17 years old!

I think that this school creates a pretty good environment for the students. I started off my freshmen year in IB, and the staff and administration helped me to get accommodated to my schedule and high school in general. But this year I switched to University and the difference was a bit appalling. While most of my classes were ok, it didn't really make me feel like I wanted to go to school. I loved my teachers but the students in my classes made me feel unmotivated, and the mood was dull. Some of the teachers would assume that nobody had yet considered attending a college as sophomores and would place ALL of their students under that same judgement. I understand that not every school is perfect, so I would still consider Palm Harbor University High School an A- school.

I liked this school. I was a part of the medical magnet program which was so much fun! Getting to do hands-on pre-med learning made school so much better, especially trips to hospitals and other medical environments for clinicals!
