High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. It is preceded by primary education. High school is also the name used to describe the institution in which the final stage of compulsory education takes place. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district.
Palm Harbor University High School, also known as PHUHS, is a nationally-performing public high school for grades 9 to 12 located in Palm Harbor, Florida. The school's nickname is the Hurricanes and the school's colors are navy and maroon. This school is considered among the finest centers of public High School education in the southern United States. The campus was built in 1996 and was originally to be known as the University High School at Palm Harbor.
In the past several years, PHUHS has ranked very highly, with over 80 percent of the graduating class qualifying for Florida Bright Futures Scholarships and students consistently performing in the top 1 percent of scores for the state-wide FCAT standardized test. The High School was mentioned in the Newsweek listing of the best High Schools in the U.S. Its International Baccalaureate program has led over 700 students to the IB, International Baccalaureate diploma, and has maintained the second highest percentage of diplomas in North America within the 60 or more students per graduating class category.
The school's largest club is Mu Alpha Theta, a national math society. Its members have competed in competitions and have placed highly among other top-ranked programs. Palm Harbor University High School's Aftermath yearbook staff has produced consistently superior yearbooks throughout the school's history, earning awards from the National Scholastic Press Association, the Columbia Scholastic Press Association, and the Florida Scholastic Press Association.

The school's principal from 1996 to 2004 was Alec Liem. Dr. Harry T. Brown took over for the rest of the 2004 to 05 school year and continued for the following year, but, upon taking a position at the school board, he was replaced in August 2006 by Dr. Doc Herman Allen. The school's mission is to provide all students with the opportunities and environment to achieve academic and personal excellence while assuring that this is done in a safe and comfortable atmosphere.
