Palmetto High School
I actually have only had experience with this school in regard to their Athletic program specifically the boys varsity soccer team. While they appear to be very focused and play well together; they are obviously supported to show poor sportsmanship and encouraged to display anger and aggression in physical play when they are losing. Also; it is unfortunate that they are not taught that certain behaviors (such as "mooning" an entire crowd of player AND parents as well as officials, coaches, Administrative Directors) give cause for them to show just how immature they really are.
