This is not a magnet school... It is not good for children that do not do well in the FCAT. If your child is a good student and get to be placed in advance classes it is an excellent school, otherwise no no.

I want my daughter to go to this school. But since her zoned school is Congress and Odyssey middle, she can't. So she is going to Odyssey because I don't like Congress. Anyway they said if we still haven't moved after a year of going to Odyssey, that if she wanted to change schools the district would let her pick a magnet school. So i just wanted to know if this is a magnet school because she really wants to go here. Thank you

The bullying is out of control. The weird thing is it's a lot of boys bullying girls.The school really needs to have more cameras and monitor them.

Hello, Just wondering how parents/students would rate this school (Currently). I am considering moving into these school boundaries, and I have an Autistic daughter. How is the ESE program? Any advice? Thanks

Unfortunately the new principal finds it acceptable to let students get thrown down, punched and video taped without issuing any punishment. I fear that as all the students learn this the school will become even more violent and uncontrolled. In addition, he is not open to meeting with parents to discuss the problem and blames the victims. I have been a parent at this school for 5 years with my two kids and it makes me very sad to see the direction this school is taking.

I love this school. I am going to start my 8th grade year and i am taking 9th grade courses. Education is taking very seriously here. The only concern is the principle and bullying. Overall, this school is great and i went from getting A's and B's in elementary school to straight A's.

This school is in need of good leadership. Another of good teachers have continued to leave and the current administration is hiring lackluster teachers. Poor leadership.

Amazing how a child who has been tested to read at a tenth grade level can be placed in remedial reading and the school administration and teachers not be willing change his schedule to where he should be. This school is definately Below Average. Child is now in a private school and has been soaring in ALL studies, especially reading!

Our school has the only Animal Rescue Club in the area and many students, teachers, and parents have helped this single club raise over 10,000 for animals in need in only two years. Our school also has excellent teachers, parents, staff, and administration.

I went to school at christa for my 6th and 7th grade year. Mr. Myers was a good principal and got the job done. He worked well with the faculty, and created a good environment for us. I heard that the new principal isnt as great from friends, and the other reviews. Not all of the teachers are perfect, but no school has a completely great staff. I found that most of the teachers are over 50, and there are not many young teachers to connect with the kids. the gifted program is good there, and it is an overall good school in boynton.

My child attends this school. The new principal has a closed door policy. She is a very poor adminstrator. She forces the APs' to do all of the work. She is pratically invisible. It makes for a poor environment for students and teachers

My daughter started at Christa last year in Grade 6 in the gifted program and I have been extremely impressed with how helpful, friendly, and professional the teachers and staff have been. I would especially like to acknowlege the Grade 7 Advanced Math teacher Mr M who goes above and beyond the classroom requirements.

I am in 8th grade right now and I have just moved. I went to Christa for 6th and 7th and I can't tell you how glad I am that I went. I miss it so badly. It has taught me so much in the past two years. It was so easy to adjust from elementary in this school. Most of the teachers there are great and they make learning more easy and fun. The kids there all come together like one big melting pot. I really wish I was lucky enough to be there again this year.

I am really impressed with this school. My son went there for 7th and 8th grade from a school in Boca. As I liked the school there (Loggers Run) I am much happier with this one. He had a great education and I felt safe with him being there. They call me with any incidents that happen. Now my younger son is there and I am still happy with it. I get emails from the principal on important information about the happenings at the school.

I can't deny that this is a really good school. The people there are cool. Most teachers are nice. And Mr.Myers isn't that bad. As long as uniform stays out of the picture. Hard to admit but I am so gonna miss this school next year but it is time to move on.

Christa is a great school with a hands on Administrative Staff. Ever morning our Principal Mr. Myers is directing traffic in the parking lot to keep all of our children safe. He attends sporting events, school dances, band concerts & participates in PTSA functions. In my opinion Mr. Myers is a great leader and truly cares about the students, parents & all staff members!

I'm a current 8th Grader at Christa McAuliffe Middle. The environment is welcoming and the staff supports all their students everyday. The school has great sports teams and academic clubs that make the middle school experience more exciting. Our new principal can be seen everywhere checking how students and faculty are running and makes sure everything goes smoothly.

Last year,We relocated to the neighborhood that is zoned for Christa. We wanted a quality, neighborhood school that offered good gifted and advanced academics and a quality band program for our children.This school provided all of that and great sports as well!The community involvement, is fabulous thanks to the teachers who sponsor the clubs such as Builder's Clubs and NJHS. Great role models for the kids. There seems to be support for all levels of students and enrichment for those that need it. The principal and administration are very visible and available for students and parents and really care about the school. It seems to lack cohesive parent participation, but perhaps some new PTA members can change that and bring more parents into the fold. It was hard to become involved- the same parents always did everything. We are happy to be part of the Challenger family!/

When Christa McAuliffe gained a new principal this year, the teacher morale was noticeable and the concern for the children and academic very noticeable. Mr.Myers is a hands-on principal who always the good of the school & students first. He is so involved and it really shows. My daughter was in eighth grade and loved Ms.Kabinoff, the 8th grade AP. The school does not have a fancy magnet program, it is a neighborhood school with excellent academics and extracurricular activities for all the students. Compare the test scores against other schools that don't have all gifted,IB or a select few kids and you will see that with all the kids, the scores show that Christa has hard working, talented teachers that care & know how to teach. If this school could find a way to get more parents involved- it would be perfect!

This school is dissappointing especially in the special education department. Parents be sure to look into the school and classroom, dont assume all is well here talk to you childs teacher to see who your child is spending most of their day with. Our experience was bad and unfortunate to say the least.

I am a former student at Christa McAuliffe and I am so glad I went. For one idea I joined about 6 clubs and exceled in them all. We got 1st place in almost all of them. And I came to Christa in Advanced classes and now that I am going to Park Vista High School I am going into 9th grade and am going to be in all honors classes including 10th grade math and drama, spanish 2. So I amvery happy with my former teachers they taught me in a fun sort of way. -Amanda Berkowitz~ Class of 2006

I thought since this school had earn rewards in the past that it would be a good school for my child. Instead I have come to the realization that it lacks structure, and academic concern for the kids.

My daughter attended this school from 2001 to 2004. She came to Christa from the gifted program in elementary school. THis was the worse school that my daughter has ever attended. I saw her test scores go down as she was not challenged. There were several problems with teachers leaving and not being replaced by quality teachers. I attribute much of the problem at Christa to poor leadership from the principal. With better leadership this school could be great as the parents are involved, the school as good demographics but unfortunately good teachers don't sign on to work with weak principals. So it was difficult to attract good teaching talent to this school. My two younger kids will not attend this school. Until there is new leadership and a chance to correct problems, avoid this school.

I have a grandchild who attends this school and I have recently found out that from the time school began in August until today (10/16/03) this child has had over 20 movies shown in various classes. Five (5) of these were totally UNRELATED to any class, the rest as counted took the entire class period to view with NO discussion. One movie I did not count took 3 class sessions to view in its entirety but the teacher took what I would expect would have been about 3 minutes to relate the movie to the goals of the class.
