the school is a horrible school, the teachers give the kids no motivation, the new principal is leading this school back to what it was 2 years ago, the school is very old, and needs severe renovations, kids are allowed to do whatever, like the school is out of control, if you ask to use the bathroom, you get sent to the office for no reason, I literally hate this school, I like nothing about it, the only way the school could improve in my opinion is get a new principle, the one we're stuck with now is leading us to our deaths. Just letting you know, if you are thinking about bringing your child here, DO NOT, your better off with Harmony HS, Liberty HS, Gateway, or even TECO.

This is my second year in PHS and honestly the school isn't even all that bad. The staff always try their best to get students involved in school events. In my opinion, it's the students who make the school look and sound bad. They want to do whatever they want and that's not how it is. But at the same time, the teachers don't motivate us in class. All they do is yell and kick people out for the littlest things. They give up on their students too easily. The only good thing about the school is that the faculty allows us to express ourselves with piercings, the way we dye our hair, and dress. Yes, we have to wear uniforms but they let us put our own little style into it. Not something big, but they let us add something so we can feel comfortable. Now we have a new Principal coming in and honestly, I feel like he's taking away all our rights from the letter he sent in the mail. We can't wear face piercings or more than 2 on the ear. We can't wear sandals or slides. I have many piercings and I refuse to take them off. I also love wearing slides we spend 8 hours every day walking class to class and doing stuff we want to be comfortable. I understand its for safety but we're old enough.

This school is absolutely awful. you are DOOMED if you go to this school. If could I would give it ZERO stars. As my mom once said about this school...BASURA. (Means garbage in Spanish) If you want to throw away the fun years of high school....Come to Poinciana High School!!! you can just chew gum or burp you would get an automatic suspension for 5 days. If you don't want your child to graduate then...Come to Poinciana High School. Where only 30 percent of students graduate. This years graduation was only like 5 seconds long from how few people graduated. Also most of the students there are...troublemakers. Not a good environment for any kid to learn both educational wise and manner wise. Now I know why there were an F school recently....NO FUN or LEARNING. What a waste of 4 years...no... one hour...no...one second in this pathetic excuse for a school.

I Spent 4 Years at poinciana High School, and I can certainly say that those were the best four years of my life. I got Involved in sports and as many activities as possible, which enhanced my high school career. My best memories are of things I used to do in Poinciana, regardless of what many people might say, Poinciana is and will always be the best High School. - John E

You get what you give. You cannot expect teachers to do everything; it starts and has to be reinforced at HOME. My 2 son will be Poinciana grads and the 1st one graduate with 33 college credits. He now has a Computer Eng. degree. 2nd one is on his 4th year. The more challenging the class the better prepared for College your student will be. Parents have to get involved, support the school and encourage their child to take challenging classes and WORK HARD. Parents need to Thank Poinciana Teachers and staff. I found Poinciana to have a great Academics Program, Outstanding NJROTC, Sports Program and many other fine Programs. Poinciana High School is a Quality learning environment. The staff is inspiring, hardworking and friendly. They work with what we give them, talk to your student and school and see the get what you give at work.

Part 2 of 2: Why do you thing like School like Osceola school of arts and other types of school have lots of HAPPY KIDS running around, that's because those kids attending that school are at common grounds with their Teachers/School. Parents Should also be part of your child education, NO! NOT ONLY IN ELEMENTARY.... join your Kids HS PTA, if anything this is the most important part of your kids education, Make it count! If we Create HAPPY KID, that in turn will create HAPPY TEACHERS, which in turn creates a better environment in the class, creating a better SCHOOL, SCHOOL DISTRIC, Equaling a better generation of kids! KIDS take control, and TRY YOUR BEST, that way you can never say: "If only I would of" Niulka Laboy, Photographer & Graphic Designer In Osceola for 21 Yrs!

Part 1 of 2: I'm Extremely sadden to hear such negative comments, especially from students. Being an Alumni of the 4th graduating class of Poinciana HS...It really seems that all of the nice and memorable Ideal experiences from a HS are long gone and a thing of the past. Now contemplating on what HS My soon to be 9th grader should go to is a decision that worries my husband (whom I met while in PHS) and I. I'm an active parent and it's really sad to see that ALL schools.....(Ok, with an exception of a handful) have lost and forgotten the meaning and the role of a "School" the school should be the home away from home for kid. Every child K-12 should feel loved & welcomed in their school (I've seen enough to be able to say that's by far that's NOT the vibe you get). High Schools and other levels of schools have lost focus, and common cutesy. OK, I don't want to sit here and sound like an advocate for the student, yes I know that today's offspring's can be a tough bunch, However I feel that schools are more concern on "school grade and ratings" instead of students needs and wants.

Poinciana is rather pathetic. They make us skip our whole day and sit in ISS for being late. Even if we're only a few seconds late. Then the students in ISS have to clean the school and pickup trash, when that's what janitors are supposed to be for. I also got yelled at for hugging my boyfriend and was told it was not school appropriate. It's not even like we were groping, it was just a friendly hug. Maybe if they'd chill a bit and actually clean the bathrooms then the students wouldn't feel so cramped and stressed. It feels like the deans and principals are suffocating us. Maybe next year it'll be better. But so far, we're only a B because the state lowered thir standards. So quit getting your hopes so high.

I am a student that has attended this school for two years now,and dont plan on going back. i moved here to the Osceola County and was zoned to Poinciana,i was looking for to this new experience but it didnt turn out the way i had hoped for. The students lack tons of motivation,strive,and the urge to learn. But also having the teachers loose the power and control over their students to want to learn or even have the respect makes it no better. Their are a few teachers here that care and work hard for their job and their are many that don't bother anymore. This school needs a definite change with students and teachers all together.

You get what you give. You can not expect teachers to do every thing, it starts and has to be reinforced at HOME. My son is a 2006 grad and he graduate with 33 college credits. The more challenging the class the better prepared for College you will be. Parents have to explain this and encourage their child to take challenging classes and Work Hard. Jonathan finished his third Year at College and is well equipped Thanks to Poinciana and all his Teachers but we never expected the school to do it alone. His College GPA is 3.5 and has earned over 97 credits qualifying him for the Smart Grant. We found Poinciana to have a great Academics Program, Outstanding Sports Program and many other fine Programs. Making Poinciana High School a Quality learning environment.

This is the first year for my 10th grade son in Poinciana High School. We moved during the summer to Osceola County from the Dominican Republic. He came from a small private British school in the DR. Even though I originally wanted him to attend Celebration High School he was zoned for Poinciana. So far he has adapted quite well and brings home lots of homework almost every day. He is learning a great deal in his honor and AP classes which is very importand to him and myself. The new principal is doing a great job in improving the school and making it one of the best in Osceola County.
