The academic programs are adaquate and the band and drama departments are great they are taken to the limit by experianced music teachers and students as for parent involvment there are PTA and also letters and notices sent home monthly
I've had three children attend this school. Once it was an A rated school. It is now rated B and is overcrowded and not the school it once strived to be. The experience has been disappointing, even though my children have been excellent students.
Excellent school. They are very supportive of parental involvement. Good activities program and a good academic program. Safe school with very little behavioral problems. My son is very happy there.
This school is one of the best high schools ever. Its academics are pretty high and the kids feel safe. Its band program is the best in south Florida. Parents get involved a lot as well.
My daughther is currently attending this high school and she loves it. She tells me that she feels safe and at home. The teachers are caring and dont judge the student for they know.they help them take the right desicion when it comes to that particular student's high school career. This high school was recommended to me by my best-friend and it was the perfect sugestion since i was looking for a high school that helped my girl's knowledge to grow.
The school in general seems good in academic programs, however, there is a very inconsistent disciplinary situation. Ap's don't seem to agree in what the standard disciplinary action is and this leads to a lot of confusion between parents, teacher and child. Some students even want to see the AP because they know they will get away with something. Parent and teachers then get blamed for whatever the problem is. This needs to be corrected.
All three of my children attend Taravella. We are totally happy with the school staff, teachers, coaches and the quality of teaching. I would recommend this school to anyone. Great school!
moved from tamarac to coral springs so son could attend taravella....he begins his junior year and it is EVERYTHING i heard it was....great kids.....safe, great learning environment!
