33 Parent Reviews for Palm Beach Central High School

As an alumni, I can say that PBC really helped shape my life. I was a honors student and I took mostly honors classes, each challenging me to do my best. I had some amazing teachers that helped shape my life - specifically Mrs. Bretherick who taught me that if you want to do well you have to challenge ...  Read more

I have two boys who have attended this school and have always been able to contact teachers and staff without an issue. I usually contact first by email leaving phone number and best times to reach me because I have limited availability during the day. They have always been accommodating. My children ...  Read more

Simply put, authority in this school is prime focus, classes are uninspired you have 5 minutes to navigate through 150 meters of school ground with 3000 students rushing in the opposite direction you are. Most times, needing to make a stop at your locker to pick up your textbook. Not Because you need ...  Read more

Absolutely ridiculously rude. Teachers and office staff. I am not the biological mother, I am the step mother. My husband works where he can not have his phone. I called to make an appointment for my husband to come in a talk to teacher, the lady who answered phone said in a rude tone when I told ...  Read more

The kids ran the school, here the kids have teachers who actually try to teach and prepare them for the next phase. (FYI for ...  Read more

I agree with a Previous post. The school is more interested in tracking attendance and tardies (3 seconds after bell rings) is considered late..which lands the student a detention. The school has 3000 students, all navigating at once, with stops to lockers between classes in addition to the morning ...  Read more

I was a student here for 4 years and graduated in 2009. This school has good teachers...about 7 of them. The office staff is so beyond RUDE, they made me cry 3 separate times...and I have never had ANY behavior problems. It doesnt doesn't matter if you are alumni, a parent, a student, or a soon-to-be ...  Read more

This school is huge, disorganized, and the kids are mostly under the influence, and mouth off to the teachers. It's also messy and the school actually is accepting the bad behavior of so many teens like littering cussing and more... The teachers don't even teach u much at all, and most of the staff are ...  Read more
