Both of my children are part of the GIfted program and they both received more home learning in elementary school than they do at this school. I feel that the home work at this school is fair and adequate. I am very pleased.
This school overall is incredible. I'm in the Drama magnet and going into my sophomore year. I came into this school when I was starting at the high school and most of the teachers here are amazing and you ACTUALLY learn. I've made so many awesome friends that I look forward to seeing everyday. Our arts program is out of this world!!!!! No matter which magnet you apply for, I guarantee you'll love it. The administration are extremely nice and care for all the students, and our principal, Dr. Balsera, runs this school pretty well. I'm very happy I chose this school and I wouldn't leave at all. I recommend this school 100%.
My daughter has been at Zelda-Miami Arts Studio for 2 years. I have to say that she loves the school and so do I. Last year her English Teach Ms. Vans (I hope I'm writing that correctly), was so amazing to her students that my daughter would look forward to that class more than anything. She is in Theatre class and absolutely adores Mr and Mrs Garcia. They are strict but so loving and will bend backwards for those kids. She has made such amazing friends from amazing families. The school is kept immaculate. The last day of school which you might think would be chaotic, went by so smoothly you would think it was just a regular day. The new principal Mr. Balsera is great with the kids. My daughter has indicated she plans on staying in this same school until Senior year.
