Pensacola High is an amazing school. The teachers are excellent, the administrators are great, and the overall environment is flawless. I love it there, and couldn't imagine getting as fine an education as the one I am receiving now. Class of 2015 out.

Wow, i am so suprised that people are really jumping on the bandwagon saying that IB is the only thing that is boosting the schools grades. I was in Health academy, and graduated with high honors. I knew plenty of general population graduates that did very well in school. Not because of any magnet program ...  Read more

PHS isn't a bad school for Escambia County. I'm in the IB Program (and a black student) if you are a minority and decide to join this program (which is an excellent source for college prep) be ready for discrimination. Many of the students will be rich, white, and Republican. I felt more comfortable ...  Read more

I'm in IB, and I'm going writing about it and PHS. I hate PHS. With a passion. I'm tired of being pushed around and cussed at, hearing idiots in the halls screaming at each other.

I graduated from PHS, was even in the IB program. Like any other school, PHS has its flaws. As many will attest, the IB program is indeed boosting the overall school grade. But its what any other city/state does with their lower grade schools to boost student morale and funding. If the school is dirty, ...  Read more

My daughter's Freshman experience has been terrible at this school. Her phone has been stolen twice and administration did nothing. Teachers that don't teach, and coaches that have terrible attitudes. The school itself is dirty. I am embarrassed that my daughter is even attending. Will not be here ...  Read more

I am a graduating IB student of PHS(2009!). PHS displays a general diversity from the academic programs,teachers,and students alike. Though the IB program had a wondrous influence upon the school,I believe the Health Academy and ROTC program equally make contributions of their own. I personally experienced ...  Read more
