Academics are strong, but falls short on creativity. No sports except through paid after-care program. Band program is small. Parent involvment is good.
This school is excellent, the administration does a very good job of challenging the students and the teachers are always willing to talk to parents. The school in itself has a very home like feel since most students have been there since kindergarden. Music and Art are taught at Everglades and PE is required up to Middle School where it becomes an elective. The staff is corteous and treats the students fairly. Overall an excellent school.
The administration does a great job at challanging our kids and leaving no child behind. The principal is very energetic and is visible all the time. The teachers reflect the energy and are very enthusiastic about teaching.. (Happy teachers + Happy students= success).. Great learning environment. We are definetly happy to be at Everglades K-8.
My stepson Anthony has been attending Everglades for 4 1/2 years. He has come a long way, thanks to the great ESE teachers. The staff everyone from the security guards to the principal have been great. Last year, I needed to change Anthony from a classroom and placed into a more appropriate one for his level and it only took one week for that be effective. They are there to listen and resolve our issues and concerned for the well being of our children. This year my little princess Gabriella is s roll model for Pre-K with Ms. Dawson, and Ms. Arlene,whom are the best. Hopefully, I will get the same great outcome from Gabriella. May you keep up the good work and being an 'A' school.
This year is the first year my son attended a public school and my daughter started pre-3. We were concerned if our son would adjust to the environment and specifically test and pass the fcat. Without the superior support of the teachers, staff and dr. Tarver and her crew, adrian would not have passed the fcat. He loves the school! thank you everglades as for my daughter she attends l.E.A.P. A new program for typical and mildly autistic children. Sofia has grown so much this school year. She loves her friends and ms. Dawson, ms. Arlene and ms. Arla are superior teachers! what a wonderful program. Sofia has learned a great deal and has grown intellectually beyond my hopes!
The school's rating has gone down the past few years. It's definately not what it used to be. There is not enough homework and my child has not been challenged enough this year. I believe the school has the potential of becoming again an A school, but its up to the faculity to do so.
This school was average. I'm glad we switched to Ponce De Leon. Some like it there, but its not for us.
Very good school. The curriculum is excellent and they have great teachers who are very involved with the kids.
I am hoping that with a new Principal, parents will be more welcome at the school. In this school and in most of Dade County parents are not welcome to be part of their childs education. I am sure Dr. Doylene Tarver will remedy this.
I think this is a very good school. But, I have to agree that they do not want the parents involved at all. I think this is no good for either parent, child or teacher. I think we should do something to change this procedure.
This is my daughter's second year attending and thus far I have no complaints about the teachers. However, I must say that many times I have seen the administration not allowing parents to become involved with the teachers as sometimes is needed. This is very frustrating for the teacher, child and the parent!
The teachers are great but the administration does not welcome parents. They make parents feel like outsiders. Not a friendly school like it once was. They keep sending new principals to this school and each one makes more distance between the school and the parent. Since the teachers are good you just have drop your kid off and get out of there.
