This school is a typical neighborhood school that does not hand pick its students such as Edgewood, but still offers a special program, called Viper Accelerated Program (VAP) for those that want more than just a basic education!
I am very happy with this program and it keeps my daughter performing at a level as high as she wants to take it, the teachers are willing to accommodate different levels and assign work accordingly. All schools can be great, it's the teachers that make the difference!! And this school certainly has great teachers that truly care for the students' success and are willing to do what it takes to get the kids ready for their next stage in life!! Way to go VAP teachers!! Keep up the good work!!!
I am a student at this high school, and I have read all of the reviews on this web site for the school. Many of this reviews are out of proportion. The dress code isn't strict in the frist place, but it is enforced. At this time I have had no problems with any teacher. The review with all the discription of smoking, profanity, and PDA on campass is neverly nonexistent. Truely my old middle school in a small town in Ohio was more of a problem. Many reviews have said that their student fail the courses at the school and if you do the work your grade will refect. At this time I have held a 4.0 GPA for a year and a half. Just remember with any high school kids will be kids.
Space Coast is absolutely terrible. I Hate going there and if I could go to a different school, I would. The students lack care for each other and the teachers pretend we're all a big happy "family" but in reality we're enemies. We never get a break and if we miss a day of school, its like we're lost for eternity.
This school was a horrific choice academically, Space Coast seems to have been nothing but few teachers actually willing to try and be compassionate with the student to better fund their academic progress. Most of the staff is incompetent and non-helpful entirely. I found the student population to be intimidating and lacking in social skills; as well, many students broke dress code on a consistent basis and no one thought the better of it. Facility are virtually fearful on students and respond to misbehavior by veering their eyes. This school, I believe, is a despicable representation of the public school system and its disciples.
This school is fantastic. They have zero tolerance for being late to class , cutting classes and bullying. I am glad all the kids that create problems are sent to other schools. This is an A school and I support them...
My daughter is home bound..not because she wanted it but because her school failed her. The attendance people were wonderful both to me and her because they knew that she had a medical reason for missing so much school. No one else in that school except for a couple of teachers even cared. I could not get any support from anyone even the Guidance Dept. to help us. Now she is registered with the Florida Virtual School, home bound and is making honor role once again and flying through support and communication. I really feel that Space Coast somehow was not there for her and her educational needs. She refuses to graduate from that school because of her bad experience, and that makes me very sad.....However, she continues to be the best and will graduate from high school in 2011. Space Coast parents ....BE AWARE!! LISTEN TO YOUR CHILD.......
