We are very pleased with the school. Our daughter has been there for three years and will be starting fifth grade this fall. She had a wonderful teacher last year, Mrs. Bucalo, who inspired and motivated the class throughout the year. The administration and principal are well organized, vigilent and caring about their students and the community. My child has recently started counting the days until school starts; now that's a good sign!

Ruth K. Broad is a needle in a haystack.. This is an extraordinary school. I know this because I go to many schools in Dade-County to do lectures. I have seen it all. This school is one of a kind. Some parents don't understand this because they have not seen the other schools in the county.. They are overcrowded. The children don't even have their own classrooms.. They are separated not by walls but by a blackboards. Our school is haven for learning the teachers are outstanding and the PTA is none to surpass if your child is in this school say a blessing every day.

I love Ruth K. Broad Elem. because it is a joy to come and teach. I have supporting administration, parents, and colleagues. I can't say enough for my parents. They are concerned if I need anything or if there child is making progress. I can sit anad talk and discuss solutions if needed. The school is school friendly. The P.T.A. is outstanding. I have my materials to teach with and if not I am provided with them. The atmosphere at my school is (mulicious) that means good. I get an extra bonus by coming to my school because I cross the bridge and see the ocean. Great scenery that allows me to have peace sometimes.

RKBBHK-8 is a great school because of the dedicated teachers, staff and administration who put the kids and their needs first. The school provides an excellent learning environment and tries its best to support all children to reach their unique potential. As in any endeavor, there are still possibilities for improvement, but there are also those who are eager to do everything in their power to make such improvements.

I don't know of any parent concerned about security in the school (besides the one below). My daughter attends the school since kindergarten and we feel she is very safe there. It's an island and the police is always around, mostly helping the kids cross the street and greeting the parents. It's one of a few community schools in Miami-Dade. They lack extracurricular activities and some of the teachers could have more training, at least in the subject they are teaching. But this is not an isolated problem. It's a state problem. But all-in-all, it's a great school. I will miss it when my daughter goes to high school.

Unfortunaty the school lacks security and most of the parents are very concerned. Also lack of organization and communication with the parents. As far as education, it is good. But only for Florida standards.

I am absolutely happy with the education my child is and has received at Bay Harbour Elem. It is unfortunate that they can not get the Lice Outbreak problem under control, as many students are missing many days of class because of it, which in turn is hurting their grades. Many of the students have been sent home more than 3 times because of lice, with no follow up after. Not only does this hurt our childrens grades it is also not helping to develope their self esteem!

Ruth K. Broad Bay Harbor Elementary School provides a safe learning environment in which students and parents are treated with respect and care. The entire school staff works as a team to ensure that the students thrive and succeed academically, socially, and emotionally through differentiated instruction. My son had an exceptional kindergarten year in a classroom which provided structure, love and high expectations. He learned to read, write, and utilize his mathematical skills through critical learning opportunities. It is a wonderful feeling to see the students happily walking through the hallway at any time of day and truly making lasting memories at these impressionable ages. Parental involvement at this school is like nothing ever seen before. The parents are constantly working collaboratively with teh school as active partners in each child's education. This unified effort is one the greatest assets that Ruth K. Broad Bay Harbor Elementary School possesses.

We have daughters in 2nd and 5th grade. They are both in 'gifted' classes and we are very happy at their academic education. The atmosphere at school is pretty much relaxed and our experience with their teachers has been very good. They work one on one and communicate with us when necessary. Our only concern is the lack of free time to socialize and relax. Such a demanding education will greatly benefit with a few hours a week of just free time, time to talk and know better your fellow students.

Great teachers too bad they are very slow to recognize and treat bullying. They have tendency to dismiss it all and to bring the blame back to the child being bullied. This does not calm the parent they will find any little fact to not have that child come back instead of having a positive way of dealing with the problem. Extracurricular activities are hard to get in since the children already in have priority to them (chess is limited and available if one child leaves or by principal order).
