I don't know how is a 5 star school, maybe because of great students and great parents. ... my daughter has been there since kindergarten she's now in sixth . Most of the teachers expect the parents to be the educators. Lots of homework, Internet research ect. Bottom line they make easy money from us taxpayers I'm not complaining of being a father but is tough seeing science teacher saying that 50 percent of a semester grade is based on what we do at home when she's the one that get paid 100 percent for teaching
Bob Graham is an amazing school. My oldest who is 21 now graduated from Bob Graham and now my twins are about to graduate next year. The teachers and staff are amazing extrememly caring and committed. I am proud to have all my babies be a part of Bob Graham.
This is the first year my kids attend this school eventhough i have lived in the community for 2 years. Initially i was hesitant to put my kids in this school because its a very big campus and my kids were attending a small Charter school that promoted an international education. At the beginning of this year I started interviewing different schools and interviewed BGEC a few times.Academically they are very good. i have also spoken with many different parents whos kids go to BGEC. and there is not 1 single bad comment about the school. I am extremely pelased with the School staff. . The teachers show interest for my son to do better and easily meet with me to discuss any issues that may be helpful for my son to succeed. summarizing, my experince the last 3 years my son has been in the school system and comparing the 2 previous schools with the BGEC, i can only say my kids are very happy as well as the mom. I am thankful i made the decision to put them in this school.
This school is pure amazing! It's so fun and full of great teachers! I'm a eighth grader who recently just graduated from this school and I miss it so much! I highly recommend this amazing A+++ school!
If I could give a negative star rating, I would. I HATED attending this school so much, and I can tell you the full truth because I got to fully experience this school from a students point of view since kindergarten all the way up to eighth grade. Now, this school is considered A Grade based on one thing, test scores. Most of the teachers are okay, but several are over the extreme and either: 1)don't teach 2)bombard students with homework 3) are disrespectful to students in a inappropriate manner. I have personally gone through all three but majorly No.3 this year. If you have an issue like No.3 and advise the administration, they will do NOTHING about it. Bullying is a major issue at this school and I have personally been a victim of it. I have been threatened and verbally affected by some of my peers and even after reporting them, they just get away with it. Several good classes like music and chorus have been removed and all students including those who get perfect scores on the FCAT must give up an elective for a mandatory reading class. The only good thing I can say about this school is that they have a good ESE and ESOL program. I cried of happiness on the last day of school
This school only depends on their image. They dont care what happens with students as long as they look the best. The teachers barley teach us throuout the year and expect us to get a 5 on the fcat. in this school the parents or students can never win an argument the staff and administration is always correct even if it tis there fault. i am super glad it is my last year in this school so i can graduate and go to highschool already. i just hope that i have no problems in my 8th grade year with the principal and im not a bad studetn its just the little things that i do like not pay attention in class or forget to tuck my shirt in or wear my id that gett me into all sorts of trouble. they once accused me and my friend of cutting our hair in the bathroom. this school SUCKSSSSSSS I DO NOT RECOMEND YOU TO ENROLL YOPUR STUDENTS HERE........
I have never been more disappointed of this school. I have attended this school since kindergarten and this up coming year will be my last. Everyone is always saying how great the teachers are, but in reality there are very few good teachers. Most of the older teachers just need to get up and retire instead of harassing the students. In addition, every year our choices for electives become a less and less variety and we must all now take a mandatory reading class, even those students like myself that recieved a perfect score in reading. Another issue would be bullying. I myself have been a victim to bullying and i reported the girl several times and she was never punished and she continues to bully me. I just cant wait to leave this school for highschool.
