I have been at epa since it opened I started out there as a 6th and now im going into high school im going to be honest with u right now dont send your kids they wont they education they need all the classes are a joke and when in 7th grade i spent the whole year without a reading teacher we had subs and got free a's and in my 8th grade year my language arts teacher only has 100 and something kids 8th graders out of the 200 and something 8th graders the school had attending and my teacher had 70 out of 100 kids failing the last quarter and more then 20 kids attending summer school she had a very complicated way of teaching and grading and she had favoritism . Now im entering high school but not at epa i will be attending kgchs because my middle school years were the worst at epa and i use to go to waterstone and i got honor roll at least twice a year and now at epa I haven't even gotten one ur better off picking another school

The school is good but it has its errors like that the fact of small parking, terrible food, bad behavior, she didn't really get a good middle experience. My child went there last year and she hated it so i took her out and put her in South Dade Middle School she likes it 110% better than EPA

My son will be entering this school year 2014-1015 and so far we love the school. When I visited the school for the first time it left me with a great impression of the excellence of what the school has to offer. Walking into the office of the school I was received with the greatest welcome anyone can receive. All the staff members of the office are beautiful and attentive to everyone needs. They are professional in every aspect. They know how to service everyone even in their most busiest time. I look forward to a great relationship with the school. Everglades Preparatory Academy is a great school and I am so happy to know my son is going to attend the school in 10th. Class of 2017!

I am concerned as a parent why so many teachers are leaving this school voluntarily. My child says no one wants to be there. I've started to look at other schools because this is not the right fit for us. From the things we hear, it really isn't the best environment for most students or teachers. Happy teachers = happy students. Happy students = happy parents and community. Such a disappointment.

In academic ways the teachers are trying hard to maintained the standards set by Water stone, which by the way is a great school, however I believe the Principal needs to re establish higher standards for the teachers, maybe this way the student will take it seriously. Some teacher should be teaching just elementary not involve in high school if they are not fully committed of preparing this kids for success.
