Asbury has a lot of potential and for a while there the school did great once the Mazzoranos left. But for the last two years the school has been a disgrace. Most of the faculty has no more than a high school dregree. About only two have an AA. This was my son's last year and I kick myself for having have left him there. He had honor roll yet failed all the tests given at the following school. The school needs an overhall. They need to stop placing pretend aminastrator with no education or knowledge and they need an entire new staff with bachelors in education. Parents do not place your kids in this school. You will be disappointed.
My son has attended Asbury for many years now. It truly has the best curriculum. He has learned so much, and this is because of all the teachers he has had. Asbury provides a safe and nurturing environment for all children. One review mentioned "bullying". To that parent I say, you have NO IDEA what bullying truly is. I am a public school teacher, and it is RAMPANT in my school, and MANY schools across Dade County. I would never place my son in my own school, and it really isn't as bad as some of the other public schools. However, Asbury is far more superior, even down to the school lunch!
I had to take my child out of this school this year. This school lacks a good administration and teachers! It is extremely disorganized! I can agree with some of the previews reviews when it comes to the curriculum. This school uses ABeka, which is an amazing curriculum but are the teachers teaching this correctly?! My child would come home with a bunch of worksheets from the book, which should of been done and taught in the classroom but the teacher would send them home for H.W. without even explaining them. My child's teacher had no classroom management skills at all! Notes were sent home constantly complaining about my child talking in class. When I would speak to the other moms from the class, they were also getting notes sent home as well almost everyday. The teacher did not know how to control the kids.
This school has changed over the last few years for the worse. It's sad to say that parents pay so much money for their child's education and none of the teachers are qualified or certified by the state of Florida. The school lunch is horrible! My child wasn't able to eat the school lunch all year long. The school administration does not know how to run a school and they are very unprofessional. You would think a christian school would be administered in a different fashion.
This school has changed for the worse. There is so much bullying. The office people do not help. I can't believe the bad way this school has become. I'm very sadden by this. This is not a real christian school.
I love this school, nice place and i love the way they are, I got my tow kids in there and i never have no problem at all.....God bless this school. my kids teachers are good odalis and the other from 3rd grade.
This school is a disappointment. I removed my 3rd grader after they close down middle school and I couldn't leave my 7th grader. I am a teacher of the public school system and Asbury is behind on education, and technology. The 3 ladies in the office are always lost and rude. Parents keep away this school is constantly changing for the worse.
Asbury is an excellent school. Period. The commentator below is incorrect... my son has attended this school for several years now and I check the reviews from time to time. There have NEVER been any negative reviews. Administration is honest, caring, and fair! I am a public school teacher, and the reading program used by this school far exceeds our curriculum. Unfortunately, I've seen many students reach upper grade levels in my public school and can not read a word. Children that attend Asbury from a young age learn to read before Kindergarten!
I find it interesting that whenever a parent makes a negative comment, it mysteriously disappears. Where are the comments from the last 2 years? I know there were several. This speaks volumes about the honesty of the administration.
