I agree with the other comments posted, this is not the greatest school in the district by far! Many of the teachers DO NOT want to be there and they express this, both verbally and by their attitudes, to the children on a daily basis. If your child is doing well they are great but the minute your child drops in academics it is a totally different story. They seem to help the better student rather than help the students who are in need. To me, that is counterproductive! I have had horrible experiences at my parent/teacher conferences and have not been regularly updated on my child's performance until it is too late. However, I have been contacted for issues that to most parents are the least of their worries (dress and gum). I think the administration needs to start monitoring their teachers and the way they conduct their classes.
The school has double standards for minority children especially in regards to the dress code. There appears to be a lack of security/supervision on grounds. Their guidence department needs a lot of improvement.
My daughter attended this school in 2004. If your in the advanced programs, no problem. If your child is in the general population, good luck. Kids are bused in from other neighborhoods and it's more like a 'day care' center. Just drive by in the morning and have a look. But what kind of choice do you really have in Florida?? Too bad our kids are suffering.
