The teachers in this school are all grade F teachers, not including the original teachers that were hired in the opening of the school, I will not mention names. (you will hear about these very few amazing teachers). Most of them are moved around from class to class unhappy with the subject they are teaching, so they do not perform as well as they should be; especially in a magnet school. You will find the main thing that goes on in this school is, Cheating. Now, lets face it, cheating is a known issue all over the Miami dade public school system, but never will you see a teacher provoke a student to cheat on there studies more then this school. After asking many of the teachers in this school questions about a subject you would believe they know, or things related to the school in general, they would either not know the answer to, or just simply tell the students to look it up for themselves. The education given at this institution is dreadful, and does not even deserve to be represented on a website such as www.greatschools.org. This is a school that is much more worried about the test scores, and where they stand on the chart of top 100 school in the district/florida then the overall quality of the education given to the students. Im sorry, but the everything in this school is faulty, and a mirage to persuade all of you wonderful parents to allow your wonderful kids into a facility that may sound great, but is truly a disgrace to education, and the public school system in general.
Respect? this school provokes its students to bad mouth, and create problems amongst each other. You would assume that a school that holds 350 kids and less, would have perfected how to deal with the little drama that happens in a high school, yet they throw fire on the flame making everything worst then what it should have been. You have the principle saying one thing to one student, and a completely other thing to the next student. You can't have respect amongst students when there is barely to none respect amongst the teachers themselves. All the teachers in this institution disrespect, bad mouth, and downgrade each others teaching methods, personalities, and positions that they hold. The teachers will involve themselves in students drama, as if they didn't have enough in there childhood.
This school does not develop anything related to the question. You would believe that a school that advertises a motto stating "Honor, respect, integrity" would incorporate some type of program, class, or moral to provide your children the proper examples they need to advance in todays society, especially while they are growing into young adults; but none of the above is offered in this facility. This institution provokes people to lie, cover up, and procrastinate everything that is thrown at them. You can believe that it is normal for your freshman, 15 year old child to not do there homework or have an F in one of there classes, but once you start noticing that teachers, 35+ are procrastinating there work, not giving there full potential into there teaching methods, bad mouthing students, teachers and administration in front of all there classes... something needs to be changed. Fairness, no such things exists in Law enforcement officers' memorial high school. Everything in the facility is favoritism, down to the administration itself.
My daughter is a senior student at this wonderful high school. She is in the forensic science program and now is doing early admissions at Miami Dade College. The teachers at this school are doing a good job by keeping her motivated to be successful.
When my son got accepted I was so happy, proud of him and have high expectations of this unique magnet school. The 2012-13 school year it is almost finished and I have never been so disappointed at a school and it s administration before, The teachers are very low quality and they never do their main job, TEACH. I could tell my child did not learn anything this year. MY son didnt even learn anything related to the magnet he is in. If you email the teachers they never respond. They are lazy in putting in the grades in the portal, keeping in mind that there are very few students in the school. They said they would do a lot of activities when you first sign up, but they still havent done anything. There are barely any after school clubs or any electives.
