I love this school. i graduated from there on 2013. the best choice i've made is enroll this school since 9 grade. Awesome school. I strongly recommended.


Posted February 8, 2014

This school has taught me to not only succeed in my studies, but rather serve the community. This school has close contacts with the community, which it serves to educate and improve. Not only has this school provided a rigorous and tough AP program, but also has great extracurricular activities that all students from 9th grade onwards are encouraged to participate! And this review is coming from a student who has enrolled in a so-called "better high school" but HEA is as good as it gets!

Great School my daughter is attending 11th grade and we are so happy teachers performance is excellent Mr. Alvarez the Principal great person school discipline was more strictly last year but I hope will improve again that's one of the many reasons why City of Hialeah educational academy is favorite choice for parents that appreciate and understand the discipline is love. Students have many choices of schools in the area but we personally know 2 students that left to a bigger high school and few days after returned. Is a big family and teens have the choice of exploring different career opportunities. I highly recommend this school.

Excellent school !!!! teachers, principal, everyone ! they are wonderful and great people. I am a freshman at ea (educational academy) and i love it they offer great oppertunities to those who would like to look into criminal justice, firefighter,police, and paramedic departments. You really learn a lot at this school. Yeah, it's small & very strict but it really teaches kids to be themselfs and always do the right thing no matter.

Great school! brand new school that just opened, and my son loves it. This school isn't like other public schools, it seems like a private school because of it's size, academics, and even children. I have never seen my son happy to go to school and happy when he comes back! he was not doing good in school, but this school brought his average up to an a. Class size is small, children are all nice and all friends, and it is a very safe environment. 10/10!!!

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.
