This school is one of the best middle schools in dade. They make sure the students learn. They also have many sports our kids can participate in. The teachers are willing to help the students in every way good or troubled ones. My son was very defiant and trying to show off 2015 during 6th grade they recommended him to a free 21 day outdoor live in summer program outside of the school: it was a life experience he would never forget. I can say Ms. Chang is an awesome principal hands down; her staff is too that's including the office staff. I am thankful the school staff has had patience for Antonio S.
Ponce is a great school by any measure. The Principal, Ms. Chang, is an amazing leader and has beautified the grounds and atmosphere enormously. There are not a lot of involved parents but the ones who do show up to help out are great. The IB Program has a lot of solid teachers and the staff at Ponce is second to none. Don't hesitate to send you child to school here- it is a really great school.
Students at Ponce are treated like family and are handled with integrity and love. The leaders at Ponce are intelligent and kind and they challenge the students to be their best. No student at Ponce gets overlooked and bullying is not tolerated. The IB program is outstanding and Ms. Ramos, the leader of the program, is awesome. Ms. Chang is a seriously outstanding principal and her entire staff is top-notch. Students at Ponce are driven to succeed because they are challenged and guided by their teachers. There are numerous clubs and activities as well as athletic teams that have won numerous awards! Ponce is the definition of a GREAT school.
My child was a student at the Ponce de Leon Middle School IB program. I would highly recommend the program, as it has outstanding teachers, caring staff and excellent administrators. The curriculum is rigorous and students are challenged. It is all around a great school, indeed!
