My son started Kindergarten at RECS this year and he loves it. His teacher is very caring with the children. As a parent, I can reach out to her via e-mail or the agenda and always get a prompt detailed response.

The school has great reviews, for sure. I have not yet been warmly received as a very engaged parent, and if you don't speak Spanish, you will be ignored by other parents, teacher and admins. My son's teacher is VERY abrasive in her communication style with me, and I cannot help think she is that way with the children. I have been volunteering to try to get more familiar with the staff, but they are not friendly with me. With other parents (Hispanic), they are. No one even tries to engage if you are not Hispanic. Its sad. I am trying to find a better more inclusive school. It may mean I leave Doral, entirely. My son went to a great VPK here in Doral, and did a kindergarten curriculum. That school was culturally-inclusive, encouraged all parents to engage, and everyone was friendly and helpful. This one is not.




- a
Very chaotic and impersonal experience. The school is a bunker with kids confined in classrooms with no natural light (no windows). Furniture dirty and dust all over the classroom. The receptionist don't show any sense of friendliness with parents. Thousands of emails a day but the procedures requested were not honored when need it. Demands for volunteering or money is annoying. If you are looking for a military school for your kids that's your place. Definitely the A+ is not for human relations.

Teacher effectiveness: Disagree

Very ineffective, the principal teacher for 1st grade left the school and we never received a notification of it.

Amount of homework: Disagree

The homework is very little, however it brought my attention that in many opportunities my child didn't know how to do them and i have to do the work that a teacher must do in class.

My son started kindergarten in this school under Ana Cordal as principal, we always have information about school activities and everything that happens with our child, however Ana Cordal was promoted and a new principal came on board an the school changed for bad, there are not love for the children, no communications with parents and in my opinion my child have felt behind on his education, i would encourage any parent too search other options first.

My son started in Kindergarden at RECS and this year is in 5th grade, also my daughter is in 3rd grade now and it has been a great school for both of my kids. The school is more strict than other, but now sure why people see it as a negative, I see it as a big plus. If you want to go easy with the education of your kids then go and found another school and good luck with their future!!! I highly recommend the school to everybody cares about their kids future.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

My daughter's teacher was very caring and attentive with her students. The learning environment is positive, structured and fun for the children and there's mutual respect between the teachers, administrators and the children. Parents are kept abreast of the child's progress and feedback is given regularly. I have been very pleased overall and my daughter loves her school.


Amount of homework: Agree

There is a significant amount of homework and projects but unfortunately, this seems to be the norm in schools today. A lot of the homework does require some level of parent involvement. There is homework assistance in aftercare which is a great help. The Superintendent in the School District has been talking about reducing the heavy load of homework assignments which would allow the kids to have more time for after school sports, activities and creative play. Hopefully this will come into effect soon.

The teachers are caring and friendly and has a strong curriculum. In addition to the standard courses, the students also learn art, physical education, music, computers and Spanish- one class each day of the week. It is a small enough school where the administrators even get to know the students by name. The school is very organized and is a fun, positive learning environment. The grounds are kept nicely inside and out. There are plenty of optional after school programs, although somewhat expensive. The local traffic for drop off/pick up can sometimes be a bit cumbersome but is usually managed effectively by the volunteer parents and teachers. As a charter school, parents are required to volunteer and plenty of opportunities are available to help at the school year round.
