Port St. Lucie High School is a vibrant energetic high school with a long history in the community that is living out its tagline: The Pride of Port St. Lucie.

"Classmates and teachers become family, and despite our differences, we all really do love each other." ~Rebecca Copley

Pride


There is widespread school, academic and athletic pride among Jaguars–which creates a strong feeling of respect and pride among all our stakeholders. Staff, students and parents are excited to be part of the Jaguar Family.

Beliefs

Collaborative teaming and planning lead to mutual respect, good communication, and strong relationships. People need to feel connected. Collaboration leads to strong instruction, consistent curriculum, and efficient problem-solving.

  • A world class education requires equitable access to current resources and technology to provide high quality instruction to students. Technology instruction should  go beyond engagement and entertainment, and be carefully utilized to enhance learning in science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics.
  • We are creating future leaders. It takes a village to raise our students to strive for the best, think critically and practice ethical-decision making. Teachers model behavior and monitor students as a team.
  • Realizing the needs of the student, clear consistent boundaries must be established. Consistent progressive discipline, expecting the best behavior of students, creates a culture of success.
  • We have to give frequent feedback and teach students how to take ownership of their learning. Frequent celebrations of success help students see the end results of their hard work and decisions.

Relationships


Relationships are a core value of the school. We demonstrate this value by:

  • Making sure everyone feels welcomed and supported.
  • Organizing ourselves into smaller learning communities
  • Ensuring that every student feels recognized and connected. Personalization is key!
  • Using collaborative instructional practices to develop strong, unified curriculum and instruction
  • Creating deliberate time for staff to collaborate, problem-solve and interact
  • Striving together to design high quality and academically rigorous work for students
  • Collaborating to consistently support student behavior and it shows in improved discipline data over the years
