  • Chris Ryan is absolutely correct. Dr. Phillips was, and still is a family to me. While whites are still a decent majority, the school is one of the most culturally diverse, while also being the most accepting and friendly environments I've ever seen in a public school. I'm not sure why one review recognizes the presence of a large number of minorities as a drawback, when in fact it has not only increased my understanding of American society, but has also transformed many kids previously ignorant to America's true diversity into kids MLK jr would be proud to call his own. The statement that academics take a back seat to athletics has to be the furthest thing from the truth I have ever heard. I participated in 3 different sports during my 3 years at DP, and not only do I feel my GPA was better because of them, I don't believe I could ever have been accepted to the University of Florida without them and the academic help received from my coaches.

    It is true that many kids are clever enough to skip class, smoke weed in the bathrooms, and on occasion, even cheat in class (oh my!) But I challenge you to find a public school of 5,000 kids in a booming city like Orlando where you're not going to see the ugly side of society. I'd go so far as saying I'm a better person for coming in contact with this side of society in an environment as safe as a public school. The presence of the School Resource Officers is made VERY well known (they get golf carts to chase us down) and the faculty and staff take pride in keeping the student body in line.

    And the stab that teachers are incredibly mean and/or lazy I took personally. I met some incredible teachers at DP. I'm not saying I saw eye to eye with all of the teachers, but there are a few I'm still in contact with, still get advice for even my college courses, and even consider my friends.

    To sum it up, you'd be a fool to withdraw your child from Dr. Phillips High School.

    CK. class of 08.
