This school is amazing. The teachers there know what they are talking about and have a high standard education. This school picks out the best of the best basically because a student who will suceed needs the best. The cambridge program is like an AP program at any schoold, the diffrence is that the Cambridge is flexible and lets you do what you want to do and learn broadly about diffrent situation not just focusing on what a board member wants you to learn.

The school only focuses on the Cambridge program, and the Cambridge program only. What the students learn is basically how to pass the test but not the concepts and ideologies. My son is currently going to another school and has informed me that the material learned in AP classes is far more advanced.

Amazing school with a dedicated administration, excellent teachers that make you want to learn, and a strict discipline program that keeps you doing well without interruptions but it still makes you feel at home, and free unlike other schools that are too strict and feel like prisons. I also like the principals involvement. Mr. Rodriguez walks into classes every day and you are guranteed to see him in one of your classes at least twice a week! He even knows almost all of the students names in his school. We recently had a press conference with him in our Journalism class and he was very open about what he said and had absolutely nothing to hide. The only thing lacking on our part (the students) is school spirit. We trully need more of it, but it is excpected to change within two years.

This school is the model every single school -whether is High School, Elementary or Middle School, should follow. Its Principal is amazing! And he's really involved with the population of students, their progress, attendance and discipline. I love the discipline they have with regard the uniform use. The extra-curricular activities are so many that my daughter is a dancer and she feels like is missing another things she'd also love to do. Last year they had a really bad Dance teacher and the girls felt not motivated at all. They even went back several times to Doral Middle School to almost cry to her last Dance teacher because they would have loved to be back with her, but this year they hired a new Dance teacher who is amazing! My daughter and all the girls love her. She's a real Dancer. I could not stop saying good things about this school!

The school is excellent. The principal is the best you can ask for, he is walking in the school everytime. The extraculicular activities are very good, and there are more than 30 clubs. The school is a state of the art complex and it is a safe and clean environment.

An amazing school to work at with a staff and an administration that no other school can compare to ... A safe, clean, well disciplined place for a child to get the best education possible. Truly the epitome of an 'A' school.
—Submitted by a teacher


Posted July 7, 2007

Reagan is not only one of the very few Dade 'A' FCAT schools, it also has the highest teacher satisfaction (93%) beating out New World Arts(91%) in the entire system! Because of that, the kids love it and show it.

R.Reagan High School is new. My son has been started to study there at the beginning of 2007. The teachers seem to have the good skills. As an overview, I would rate 8 to the school

About the tests


Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
