Stranahan High School1

My child was jumped by students at the school and everyone form principal to Officer of school didn't do their job. Also, the teachers DO NOT teach or return e-mails and speaks to student disrespectful. The band has a new Director with no experience that jumps in students face...Overall a very bad school to send your child to attend. The Medical Magnet Program is the only great thing about the inner city school that really don't care about your child doing well...SAD BUT TRUE...
I HONESTLY CANNOT FIGURE OUT HOW DOES THIS SCHOOL PASS HEALTH CHECKS.THIS SCHOOL HAS MAJOR LANDSCAPING ISSUES. THE STATE OR BROWARD COUNTY NEED TO DONATE MONEY TO FIX THE SCHOOL, BECAUSE IT IS IN POOR CONDITION.
My son graduated from Stranahan's Medical Magnet program in 2013 with an excellent foundation for his chosen career path. This is my second post and must mention Mrs. Hanrahan along with the aforementioned teachers. I am proud to commend Stranahan High for their commitment to creditable education.
How about a review for students NOT in the magnet program? The magnet program means NOTHING if your student is in the regular population. We were told by the administration that if our child didn't want to be there they didn't want her there. No support of any kind.
Both my children went to Stranahan High School. One was in the Engineering Magnet and is now at UF. The other is in the medical magnet. The teachers are wonderful and go out of their way to help students. The principal is very visible. Great programs have been introduced even allowing the students to get an AA degree by the time they graduate! I highly recommend this school.
Stranahan is filled with teachers who don't care and who dont want to help. The school is dirty and the students are ghetto and uncivilized. Not to mention, the rude staff. The only good thing i have to say about Stranahan is that it has an pretty good magnet program.
I am graduating from Stranahan this year (2010) and I am truely proud of the magnet programs, clubs, and activities that the school provides. For instance Stranahan provides its Summer Science Heat Program for incomming freshman which is lead by Ms. Shim-Normile, which i attended the summer of my sophmore year, and it was truely exciting.
I received a top-notch honors educations at Stranahan as a Medical Magnet Student, and would have received a good education even if I hadn't been part of the magnet program. The school is one of Broward County's best-kept secrets, a 'ghetto school' with a very low rate of violent incidents; I was safer here than in the suburban middle school in my district, which I attended before going to Stranahan. With the retrospective which (hopefully!) comes with age, I only wish I took better advantage of the opportunities offered me at Stranahan. It deserves more recognition for all it offers.
