Pembroke Pines Charter High School is a public charter college preparatory high school owned and operated by the City of Pembroke Pines, Florida.

These partnerships afford our students a state-of-the-art library, dual-enrollment opportunities, a community theater auditorium, and outstanding athletic facilities.
