Miami Beach Senior High School 1

Posted July 09, 2016

This is the home of drugs and gangs, worst of it is that the administration is aware of it they are careless, going from the principal Mr Donohue to all levels. Their response is that they have an overpopulated school not to take care of all the incidents our kids have to face every day. Teachers can grade the students as they wish, even gifted, responsible and brilliant students are graded with Z, if they get to have a great. The counsellor Ms Medienta has no clue of any of the students and provided incorrect feedback or information to whom ever requests it. Mr Lefrance have no idea of anything neither. If you visit the school they spect you to have an appointment when they never pick up the phone or listen to their voicemails or emails. This is why we see so many lkids bullied and pushed to do drugs and wrong actions, wasting them and making them trash. At this school encourage the students to take the parents out of the picture and make decisions on their own with no advise or orientation, remember they still kids!!! I'm thankful for the decition we made to withdraw our boy from this nightmare, now we are part of a school with about 1,000 more than MBSH and the whole staff knows every students by name and grade, they have the time to follow up individually and returns calls or emails same day, no later than the end of the school day. Please let's do our job as parents and not put our babies into a place where now they even need to have a K9 in campus. There lunch is terrible, it's like eating carton board. Let's make our kids stronger and confident not a wake vicious looser as this school environment and administration is. The same day I withdraw my child many other parent were there doing same thing, I give them an applause. We need a better and healthier society for out future adults.

Students are pushed too early in a grueling array of AP subjects without having the proper basic education to succeed.

No, absolutely not. Students are separated from the parents because it is easier for the administration not to be accountable for their action or lack of action.

In no way shape or form. Student language deteriorates and the civility is absent.Shakespeare would have a heart attack.
