Eagles Nest Middle Charter School1

A SCAM! Teachers (mostly foreign graduates) were made to manipulate students' grades by putting in A's and B's (notwithstanding the fact that the students were not deserving) so the school will get big funding. Teachers were being screwed over by not giving them the pay that was agreed upon. Somebody has got to investigate this school. It's doing a lot of damage to so many people.
Very biased. Focus is only on Haitian children versus children on a whole. Science teaching is very poor to non-existent. Math classes are taught not by teachers, but by the pupils/students. No extracurricular activities. No hot meals. Students gets stale sandwiches for lunch. School's overall grade is very low/poor, but school will defraud parents to think otherwise. Parents need to research this school very carefully.
My granddaughter attended Eagles' Nest Elementary & Middle Schools from 4th through 7th grades. She has ADD and was very shy. Although the school had "growing pains", they always cared for and about the students, some of whom had already given up on themselves at an early age. The policy of open enrollment also applied to the teachers; my granddaughter had an invaluable exposure to teachers and kids from other countries and culyures. When we moved to Davie, she was able to transfer to a big middle school, with a very large population, and maintain her Honor Roll status. We are very proud of her hard work; but we must give a great deal of credit to Eagles' Nest. They gave her confidence in herself, and helped her to face the new school without being overwhelmed. Thank you all!
My daughter attended Eagles' Nest Middle Charter School until we had to relocate. The school has an open door policy and a family atmosphere. She also attended Eagles' Nest Elementary Charter for two years. Both schools are located on the same campus. Thanks to the teachers and administrators my daughter began to excel because they took the time to find out how she learned, and would not accept any excuses for failure. My daughter now attended school in another county and she says that some of the things she is doing in the seventh grade, she already learned in the sixth grade at Eagles' Nest. If you are looking for small classes, great curriculum and people who care, this is the school for you!
The school has displayed academic prowess in its short period of existence. Extracurricular activities are in the growing pain stages but appears to be on a maturity pattern with the proposed outline. With more involvement of parents and faculty members for the love of proper education, I see this school as the site for students to achieve an excellent overall education and personal development.
