This school is probably one of the most disappointing establishments in miami-dade. Their advertisements do not demonstrate the true quality of the school. Some teachers, such as one of the math "facilitators" set up students for failure and are overall horrible teachers. The curriculum may be good but if the school wants to have a 5 star rating the teachers need to be either replaced or they have to change themselves. Their is also an apparent lack of extracurricular activities, which will likely continue to turn students away from a school with alot of potential, but wasted on certain bad teachers. The parents complain and so do other visitors, but nothing is ever done. This school could be so much better if it only changed certain things.
I'll keep it brief, it is the most hypocritical school in miami dade. Down the hall ways you hear kids saying "i hate this school" or " I want to transfer" It is really sad to see students turn down such an advantage because of the teachers fault or administrators. I understand their trying to make things happen but with everything they announce they never go through with it. Incoming freshmen... Pick a different school.
This establishment is an abomination. school The Principal does not know how to run the school and they do not have real teachers they have "facilitators" My daughter has to teach her self!
This school has been an extreme disappointment. My child is completing their sophomore year there and it has been a horrible experience. There are a few good teachers, primarily in the foreign language [Spanish and French], and in the English department. The math and science areas are very deficient. This is especially true in the math area. There is a particular problem with a male teacher who teaches 9th grade Algebra and 10th grade Geometry. This individual continually sets up students for failure and seems to dislike teenagers in general. I have complained to the administration and particularly the principal and nothing is done. Despite numerous complaints the same problems persist and nothing is done. The only sure thing is that students continue to suffer. I deeply regret sending my child to this school and now having to look for another high school after two wasted years. Think twice, three or four times before sending your child to this place. You will regret it!
This school is fantastic with a great location in Sunset. We can go out and study in the Barnes and Nobles next door.
Amazing, love almost every aspect of it. Great school, great teachers for the most part. Great environment Great kids and overall a great school. One improvement they could implement is put in sports teams.
This school has a very wholesome atmosphere, an excellent principal, and some good teachers; however, not all of them are good, and one in particular seems to be there for the soul purpose of impeding student success. Every so often, educators should asks themselves, "Why do I teach?" and if the answer does not include: a love of the subject, liking kids, and caring about the student's success and/or failure, then they're in the wrong profession, and are doing more harm than good. ISPA will not reach it's tremendous potential, until its teachers do some self-reflection.
