I was hired with the assurance that this is a professional establishment. Well, needless to say, I only attended one day for this employment. There was a lack of professionalism, materials, and order. Upon my first and last day there, I had to move furniture and boxes to prepare the classroom for the new academic year. The bathrooms were infested with palmetto roaches! DISGUSTING! The school thinks that they are still in Cuba and therefore expect their staff to adhere to their idiotic and ignorant polices. If you are Cuban-American like myself, they treat you like an alien in a Sci-Fi movie. Incredible!

I am very happy with this charter school. I transferred my daughter from Youth Co-op Charter School (YCCS) to Lincoln Marti this past school year and was VERY PLEASED with this school. Her teachers were wonderful and the office administration was also very helpful and attentive to our needs, unlike YCCS which has become worse and WORSE every year. Though YCCS is an A school, the teachers and administration especially the Lead Teacher, Asst Principal and Principal are horrible! There is no communication in that school AT ALL. Though I had my doubts about Lincoln Marti, I was happily surprised!!

My son attended this school in 2010-2011 and my advice is run for the hills.... For starters no one speaks english and if they do it's with an extreme heavy accent. The first year the school opened they were graded a "D" school so in order for that not to happen again they make the children attend MANDATORY saturday school from 8am-12pm on top of adding one extra hour to the regular school days mon-fri. They even had to go to school for 4 hours a day during spring break mandatory as well. Which is how they managed to become an "A" school. There are no gifted, advanced or special ed programs for anyone who needs them. There is no PE, art, music or any extra cirricular activities.There are no electives for the middle schoolers and prom has been denied for them for the past 2 years. And if you need the after care program all they do is put your kids in front of tv and yell at them until you arrive. So if your looking for a prison style school where you and your child are sure to HATE school and the enviorment then go for it if not your better off enrolling in your local public school or try the Youth co-op Charter school... I hope this helps

I am very unhappy with the Charter School of Lincoln Marti. I chose to enroll my son thinking he would get a better education and was let down. The teachers are unprofessional. The assistant principal has no education herself and doesn't even know how to speak to children herself; therefore what can we expect from the teachers. They speak in a very negative, vulgar manner. I, myself have witnessed teachers screaming at other children. I even had a teacher talk bad to me about another child and call the child crazy (very profressional, right?) People who are not on my son's emergency contact have been able to pick him up without me being called, so in other words, not very secure! When I requested something as simple as a weekly progress report, it took 2 semester to start receiving it and I'm still waiting for the counselor to work with my son as I requested in the beginning of the year and we are now in the 4th grading period. To be honest the only one who is competent enough is the actual principal but unfortunately it's only one person vs the whole school. Guaranteed my son will will no longer attend this school as of next year.

It is unfortunate to say that this is another poor school amongst the many in Miami-Dade County. Teachers are unprofessional and incompetent in the English language. If the teachers themselves are not fluent in the language of this country, how can we expect the children of the community to excel? They are teaching their students erroneous information. Therefore, the children attending this school are receiving a low-quality education. It is as if I went to France and attempted to teach in French as an American, who is not fluent in the language. I will not be successful at educating those students without speaking French properly. The same relates to the teachers at this school.

WATCH OUT PARENTS!!!!, very poor curriculum, teachers don't have enough English and none one has passed the board of education required in public school, they are not certified teachers..poor resources and security is minimal .... you never see on television an incident in the schools ..... and occur every day ... but nobody notices because they handled internally as .... in communism .... if a teacher makes a complaint is dismissed the next day ... Parents, please inquire before making a decision!, the public school system has a superintendent, a board and millions of people that regulate the development of our children ... Lincoln Marti Schools is a big fraud.

this school first opened back in 2009 it was absolutely disorganized and the principal was horrible. which is why eventually the principle was fired. upon the new principle entering the school has improved greatly went from a "D" school to an "A" school . the staff is wonderful to the children and I've had 2 emergency situations with my suck child which they handled excellent and the principle was with my child at all times . the main problem is lazy parents who do not bother to be involved in their child's education and do not want to make an effort so they quickly take their kids out however it's become a better school due to ghats working parents and excellent students who care. they also have childcare extra tutoring on campus. it's come a long way and safety is #1 at this school there is always someone on campus. My child went to regular public school and since being here his grades are straight a's and his reading improved 80% because of caring teachers very dedicated !

I gave this school one star because I wasn't allow it give it a ZERO. This is the worst school in the world. The kids run wild at all times. There's no discipline in the classroom, cafeteria or outside. Most of the teachers have accents and do not look very professional. The lunch is horrible, the administration is rude and the curriculum is very poor. It's no wonder this school did so poorly in the FCAT. DO NOT put your child in this school. They will not learn anything and they will fall behind 100% guaranteed!

Lincoln Marti is a very "special" school. This school does not have many of the basic needs that other schools have. They do not have an actual P.E court, they do not have enough books, they are terrible in controlling their students because they are so intolerable. Although, the staff is friendly. The teachers will help you if you don't understand the topic, they will take some time and help you with it. The school also provides tutoring in the morning, on Saturdays, and now even extended the school schedule an extra hour. All this to ensure that the schools passes from a D to at least a C. There is constantly trouble between classes. The principal is almost barely around, unless there is trouble, so a lot. The classes are ok, but not much interesting. Also, if ur children like sports, this isnt the school for them. Although they have a p.e court, the school does not have any teams or even extra-curricular activities. So, this school is good, depending on how much u are willing to sacrifice in order to ensure your child has a good education and a good experience in elementary and/or middle school.

My daughters are learning so much! The teachers are great! My daughters come home everyday learning something new... I love Lincoln - Marti!!

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.
