PHS IB students passed  91.8% of all exams, an all-time tested high pass rate.  IB Students also achieved a 92.5% Diplomas, also an all-time high percent received.

PHS raised the school grade from a “C” to a “B”.   PHS has not been a “B” school since 2013.

“Pensacola High School is a school of tradition and excellence.  Our teachers are knowledgeable in their craft and they united to collaborate in their professional learning communities on standards based instruction, student data, and student engagement in the classroom,” said PHS Principal Saraya Miller.  “Our school mantra is that of unity, and I am very proud of our students and entire PHS staff for uniting as ONE school, ONE dream, and ONE team to rise to the occasion.  Pensacola High School is truly ‘A Step Above the Rest’!”

Pensacola High School is the first and only school in Escambia County to offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) full Diploma Program.  The FL Pre-IB program was first implemented in 1986, with the first IB class graduating in 1990.  Beginning in the ninth and tenth grades, students enroll in Florida Pre-IB courses (as well as conventional high school electives) that prepare them for the rigors of the IB diploma program. Students take a mix of IB and AP classes to provide the most rigorous educational opportunities to prepare them for University.

Pensacola High School is located at 500 W. Maxwell Street in Pensacola.
