    Celebration High School is a pretty good school, some teachers are AMAZING, others not so much. I feel like a teacher and a student should have a friendly connection because when you enter the classroom you don't feel like a teacher is teaching you, you feel as if someone you have known for a really long time is teaching and that's what being a teacher is all about but god damn some teachers are just plain horrible. First day of school my math teacher said " I am not your friend, i am your teacher, don't come to me with your personal life and if you're having trouble at home go to guidance don't come to me" I literally got up from my desk and left the room. Some teachers shouldn't be teachers, simple as that.

    This is an Excellent school. It's hard to find a principal as caring and involved with the students as our new principal, Mr. Lisby. I have had kids enrolled in this school since 2006 and am happy to say that from the beginning they have been challenged with a multitude of AP classes, enabling them to be competitive and get into top tier universities. I have witnessed graduates getting accepted in the best schools in the country. This school offer the IB program, AVID, a Biomedical Program, Duel Enrollment as well as 5 different academies within the school. The students can even walk away from graduation with a Microsoft Certification. There are many opportunities for parents to become involved and in my experience the teachers are always appreciative.

    Horrible staff, completely distracted with their own lives and do not care about the students. This school actually lost my child! If a child shows up at a school office with a suitcase, you do not offer to call him/her a taxi to the airport. You call their parents!!!! To actually make it where my child would rather run away than attend this school is insane. Only spanish is spoken here, if you or your child doesn't speak it, do not enroll them. Not a learning environment for children who already speak english.

    I'm an IB graduate at this school, so I can tell you a few things about this school. It's a nice school but there really is nothing special or unique about it. The staff is average, principal okay, and IB program is actually subpar compared to the other IB school in the county (much better trust me). The options that this school provides to its students is also subpar. The experience is, in the end, satisfactory at the most. Though it has the name of "Celebration", bearing the "prestige" of the town, this school is as good as the others in Osceola County - which is not a compliment. If your child is choosing between this schools IB and Gateway's IB - choose Gateway. PS Our football sucks.

    No matter what anyone says, I had the best four years of my life in this school. If students come into this shool willing to do their best, and instead of complain, learn to immerse themselves in the education it offers, they will have no problem. I can honestly say this school did it's best, and coming from harsh background such as mine, I was able to fully appreciate it's quality and mostly warm atmophere. I can say my only regrets are the never changing negative attitudes of most of my school mates, and how I didn't take full advantage of all the club, school activities, and athletic teams it easily offered us.

    If I could give it zero stars I would. The staff at this school is horrible, mainly the people in the office. As a student, they made me feel very unwelcome. They were consistently rude and unhelpful. I felt very harassed as well. There was one instance where I had a problem with another student, and they did nothing to help, in fact they made the situation worse. A majority of the students are very stuck up as well. However, there are a few genuinely good teachers that seem to care about the students. But overall, I do not recommend attending this school.

    I went to the school at 12:30pm on 2/20/12 to get information because we are moving from Virginia to Florida. The lady at the front desk said to come back at 1:30 because all of the guidance counselors were at lunch. I asked if I could meet the principal and was told no. I came back at 1:30, signed in, was given a sticker badge to wear and was directed to the guidance office. The lady at the front desk said there was no one there to talk to me and asked what questions I had. She couldn't answer my questions and wrote down email addresses for me to contact. I told her I didnt come 900 miles to get email addresses, and she never let me speak to anyone. I went back to the main office and told them what happened. They apologized but didn't offer to let me speak to anyone. I ripped off the nametag and told them that I probably wouldn't send my daughter to a school where I felt unwelcome. I told them things are obviously different in that part of the country, and I was going to see if Harmony High is any better.

    My son says that his 9th grade year at CHS turned out to be the best year of all his school years so far. The AVID program has been wonderful. Administration and the teachers have been great. The theater program is excellent. My son is looking forward to another great year there.

    CHS has great honors and ap programs but the staff at CHS are unprofessional. The staff only cares about themselves and they are unproductive. Overall Celebration High School is a good school if you re in honors and ap classes. However, if you re an regular student then you are expected to fail and teachers have little expectation for you. Also, regular student are treated below honors and ap students. The new IB program is great! Florida education system isn t very good.

    We feel my child was systematically ostracized and segregated to the office. I was meeting with the school and getting nowhere weekly and talking with them almost daily. So, I took him out of this school and enrolled him into another where he's doing great! Staff was unhelpful and seemed quite unwilling to investigate my concerns. My child felt "picked on" by staff. I'm already talking with the governors office about this.

    I personally would not send my child to this school. Regardless of the IB program the test scores still remain BELOW state averages in most areas (and Fl is not known for the best schools so scores are low to begin with) The town is clearly divided between public and private school with most of the residents attending private school. Not because it is "easier" as one poster suggested but because it offers a more well rounded education that isn't effected by the never ending Osceola County school budget cuts. When we moved here in 2007 my son attended CHS and came home daily telling me he hated school. (He is an A student) We kept him there 3 months and then switched to private school. I really wanted this school to work. I moved here without looking into schools and thought the community was "too perfect' for the school to be anything but perfect as well. Whether the school is rated an A or a D the test scores and graduation rate speak for themselves.

    Celebration High School is an excellent school, it has recently been named an 'A' school by the state. Many Celebration town residents don't send their children there due to the mixing of people within the town and the "outsiders", instead they choose to enroll their children in private schools where the students say "it's easier than public school". But with Celebration High Schools new IB program and excellent AP classes it offers, it is really turning it's reputation around. As a resident of Celebration and a Celebration High School Student, I would recommend it to everyone!
