This School is the worst of the worst in Polk County. Do what you have too to get your child out of the school or send them to another school. And it is very sad that this is the only school that all Polk county student who live in Poinciana have to go too. Shame on the School Board and all who work or teach in this school.Submitted by a parent

This school is not soo bad only some of the staff members are nice but that is hard to find. I don't understand at first they enforce dress code now they don't even care. I'm a recent student and the teachers doesn't even challenge their students to their full potential it is sad actually. Unless your an Ap or IB than your someone. The classes they have are widely selectable and the Guidance counselors are always informative but the teachers are lazy, disrespectful and rude only a few are actually very nice and sweet. This school wants their children to starve you cant even eat snacks in classes and you know well these kids wake up early in the morning of course they going to be hungry while in class. Its like this school has become one of those either you "survive" or your just like the rest. Too much fights, drama, poor environment and trash is all over the place smh.

There is a physical fight at this school almost on a daily basis, usually influenced by racism. If you or your children do not speak spanish, this would not be the safest school for them to attend.Submitted by a parent

This school is a good school. The kids might be a bit vulgar and at times inappropriate but when it comes to school work they do what they have to do to get a high grade. Are the teachers strict? Most of them now are. They are very helpful and understand and will help you if you need it. I am a proud graduate from this school. As long as you are dedicated and hardworking you will graduate. Just watch the company you keep because most of the students are back stabbing and liars but as long as you know what you want out of each class you'll be fine. My advice is BE QUIET and the less popular you are the less drama

HCHS as a unit is an okay school? Lets be real this school sucks. Not only is the school full of everything from fake people, pregnant chicks, want to be popular, and pathetic jocks. The school is full of stupid rules, that does not benefit the students. If you're not in I.B or AP classes you mean absolutely nothing to the staff. The school is dirty, old, and disgusting, and as our school grade goes up more rights are being ripped away from the students. If I did not know any better I'd say Haines City High was a prison. If you have a better chance at a better opportunity for your child, then I suggest private school but keep your kids out of Haines City its not worth the unnecessary stress on the child. On a positive note there are some pretty amazing teachers there. Emphasizes on the word "some".

Umm i've been going here for awhile. it feels like middle school. everything is whatever. ohh and they have a sand problem, like if you had the beach minus the water. so you know your shoes will get ruined. i suggest you take AP classes because anything under is a joke. like honor classes are really easy. everything is just really whatever. rules aren't really kept too. dress code is whatever. great school if you don't want to learn.

My daughter attends HCHS and she loves it. All of her teachers have been very supportive, especially Mr. Reed. I hope that the remaining years of her high school career are as wonderful as this one has been. Thank you Mr. Reed for all that you have done for Baileigh! Jennifer WilliamsSubmitted by a parent

I hate haines city high school! I've been going there ever since 2008 my freshman year and now I will be graduating there 2011. I've made very few friends and out of those few frinds none of them where true. Even though it wasnt fun I'd rather be alone then struggle to make some stuck up friends. The teachers are not really into there work but i dont know if its because the children are discouraging the teachers. the administraters are just as bad as the kids but i dont wnt to get into detail. Having your kids surrounded by the kids at haines city is a bad influence. Oh yeah and waaaaaaayyyy to much teen pregnacy going on and too much drama I stongly do not reccommend haines city high school for anyone's children.

I am attened this school this year.I started going there in the begining of April 2008.From what i saw and what i learned i can honestly say that the teachers there dont care.I sat in class for a hour with nothing to do almost everyday.When we did have work it wasnt much and i finished fast.I understand now why this school does not have a high grade.If i were the one grading it i would give it a 'F'. Everyone there needs to put what they have to the fullest because i am not even being the least bit challenged.Submitted by a student

I formerly attended this school and graduated before the new school was open (2005) If you can, send you child to the other school. This school is dirty, most teachers are poor (unless your child is in the honors or AP classes) and it is almost a dictatorship with rules. The school is greatly overburdened by crime, fights, and many more unmentionables. I feared going to school and even my bus ride to school. Send your kid elsewere!

I have had 2 students at Haines City High School both have been very positive. I think that if you have students that gets in trouble at school they will get in trouble at any school. If you have good students your student should have no problem at HCHS. HCHS has several good programs for the students to get involved in. HCHS has great teachers, and staff. The appearance of the school has improved greatly. Things are only getting better at HCHS.Submitted by a parent
