Spanish River Community High School 1

You either have money and belong to the cool group with showoff expensive cloth or your looked down upon. Too much homework in each class that keeps my son working tell 12 or 1 am and then getting up by 6 am. Worst part is that education is not all that and the teachers don't care about you. Very clickish school. not impressed, go some where else.

This is one of the worst schools I have ever encountered. Rare are the teachers that care for the development of the young person. There are a few great teachers here, but not the majority. The parents are like a crazy club that wants to recreate their own high school. The PTA collects money relentlessly for their own social events, and very little goes into the education. The kids are mean to each other, unless their parents are wealthy. You need to invest in the top designers for your kids' wardrobe, and they are proud of this fact. The level of drama amongst the student body and the parents is unbelievable. The front office staff often do not know what is going on, and are rude to parents and students alike. We survived, but it was a nightmare.

This is the absolute WORST SCHOOL IN THE WORLD. the administraters don't care and they barely help your child prepare for college. The teachers are rude and the campus is filthy. Don't even get me started about the women at the suite a help desk.... By far the most vile disgusting women I have ever come to contact with. I DO NOT recommend this bratty school.

I graduated in 1987 from this school and they were opened just two years. I see now they are more competitive than they were back then. While this school was more simple than the school I came from in New York where we took the Regents examination, I had a great experience there in my junior and senior years. I remember the graphic arts course fondly with the big giant printer and the huge developing room for 35 millimeter film. I know technology has advanced and they got rid of that stuff, but that is stuff you take with you outside and transfer it to new technology which I have. The school spirit back then was great with the pep rallies during the day as we cheered for the Sharks to win. Most of all, the kids I met there were very cool back then. Since everyone was new, no one dared to make fun of each other. A lot of us got along. If anyone is reading this from the school that attends, let new kids into your circle. It's hard enough being the new kid as it is and you probably knew your friends your entire life since you lived in Florida that long.

We couldn t be happier with Spanish River. My son is a freshman, and has had so many opportunities to get involved in clubs, and sports. He has enthusiastic teachers, an excellent guidance counselor, and a great group of friends. Why would anyone look at private?

Zero tolerance to bad behaviors , wide range of AP classes,Excellent teachers specially for APs .....We couldn't ask for a better school. For ounce I feel I'm getting my tax money's worth when it comes to education.

My son transferred from Boca High, which is also a good school. He has had a good year so far. If you are lucky enough to get Jill Rockwell as a Guidance Counselor, your child is in good hands.

This is a great school. Most teachers are excellent and care about their students. They all offer to help before or after class and during lunch. You can even email them anytime with a question. The PTSA and the school websites have all the answers a new student might have. As for the nasty creatures they could crawl into your house and this will not make it a horrible house. Most students are nice some are mean. SORRY MATE our school IS NOT HORRIBLE.

This is a horrible school. Most of the teachers and staff do not care about anyone and they're pretty unhelpful. The students here are horrible. The don't care about others and don't like to welcome new students into their "cliques." So, if you are considering moving here, I reccomened that you don't, you will regret it. Not to mention the gross campus and the nasty creatures like rats and cockroaches.

We can't be happier that our kids attend such an excellent school where they can be challenged in a real competitive environment. The Biotech Academy along with the Science and math departments are sure to prep our kids to take on any discipline anywhere they choose. Excellent caring teachers Dybas,Tuffo,Leeds,Lori Eaton name a few.
