13 Parent Reviews for Booker High School

I give Booker High School 4 stars because the VPA programs are amazing. For any teen that is into the arts, this is a great school for that!

I am an alumni from Booker. I graduated in 2007. Now I attend USF in Tampa. Booker taught me so much about life, and I think about how luck I was to go there every day. College is much different from high school. Booker left me prepared to deal with the challenge, though.

I am an alumi student now attending UCF. Booker High School taught me many things besides just acadmics. There is something for everyone at the school and the adminstration and most of the teachers are very helpful in making sure you are successful.
