In response to the "review" posted on Nov. 2- I know for a fact that the Director did not leave her prior school suddenly. Her prior school did not want her to leave , as she had been there for 13+ years. She is well respected in the community and has an excellent reputation. Her husband retired with honor from Federal Law Enforcement.
Without trying to be overly dramatic, I would have to say that Palmetto Bay Academy saved my son's life and got him back on the road to academic and personal success. My very bright son went from missing over 70 days of 11th grade due to illness with failing grades, no interest in college and behavioral issues to being the valedictorian of the Palmetto Bay Academy class of 2014 and getting into all 10 colleges he applied to. The guidance and positive acceptance of this child by PBA teachers and staff put my son back in the academic world and inspired him to turn everything around in his life. We can never be grateful enough for what Palmetto Bay Academy did for our son.
The Husband of our Director left the school suddenly. I just found out both of them were at another private school before ours and left that school suddenly as well. Given everything else that has happened with my child, I am very curious what is going on.
The excellence of the faculty members at any school is a major factor in the quality of education you receive and this is one of the main advantages of attending PBA very supportive and qualified faculty. Failing is not an option.
EXCELLENT for Smart kids that need an individualized approach. Many kids that dont work well in TRADITIONAL schools and are subject to bullying, or are unconventional, can get in the business of learning, getting credits and focusing 100% in academics. It has no Athletic department and minimal social events. Perfect for kids that need extra supervising under freedom of working at their own pace. A lot come from great pr vate schools, are catching up coming from schools abroad, or faced setbacks such as sickness and come here to work under a rigurous program.
I think PBA is very small in Miami. But I believe that PBA"s students who will graduate excellent and attend in fravorite Universities. I want to know procdure attend PBA in Fall 2012-2013 year school. Do PBA has a broading school ? My child will study 10th grade in Fall 2012-2013 yearschool.
Excellent school! Teachers and staff are genuinely interested in each student receiving a quality education. My son has thrived here and I do not believe that he could have received a better education anywhere else!
