Archimedean allow us (parents) to be part of this excellent Middle School, develope the kid's skills above the average of other Schools not only in Dade county but all over Florida & USA. Students graduated from here will have a brilliant career in their life

The school cares about the students and the students work harder. The rules are strict and the curriculum is difficult but this allows the students to be number 1 in Dade county and #2 in the state of Florida!

Archimedean offers my child the best education in all aspects. I like that Archimedean takes it seriously to make great men and woman from our kids and this is something we cannot obtain anymore in this society, they work with us to keep our kids safe and in a healthy environment while studying. I love how my daughter feels Archimedean as her home. I think we were lucky to find this school that is just different and better in many ways.

Archimedean has been a well structured school that has provided my child a wonderful, and complete education, The size of our school also helps the children as they are all familiar with ecsh other, like one big family. You know that your child's education is important to the staff and all of the teachers give more than 100%.

The school breeds an environment of learning and culture. It is a great place to go to school, because teachers know students by name and foster an environment where they care about their students' learning. Mrs. Moysidis establishes a culture of tough love, in which each child pushes to achieve their potential. As a teacher, I feel very supported and supportive of each child.

DEDICATION OF THE TEACHERS AND PRINCIPALS. HIGH ACADEMIC STANDARDS. EASY COMMUNICATION BETWEEN PARENTS AND STUFF.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted November 4, 2010

AMC is one of the best middle schools in Dade County. Even though the curriculum is rigorous and the school days are longer, my children have flourished in this school. I've finally found a school that encourages their students to aim for the best even if it takes them out of their comfort zone. The students here are very special and new students are welcomed with open arms. Friendships formed at this school remain intact even after the students graduate or transfer out. The atmosphere is family oriented where everyone knows your name.......your good points and your bad and where everyone looks out for each other's wellbeing. Like most schools, AMC is not perfect but they work hard at pinpointing areas where they can improve. The principal has earned my respect over the years as a tough administrator but a very fair one. She listens, she investigates, and she offers solutions when parents have concerns. Some of the teachers my children have really connected with are Ms. Licciardi, Ms. Lopez, Mr. Santelices, and Ms. Maldonado but overall the teachers are good and care a great deal about each student. As with any school you'll always have some bad with the good but this is also true of the real world. What really amazes me at this school is how accessible the principal and teachers are if a parent has a concern. Communication is mostly done by e-mail between teachers and parents but you can have a face to face talk with any of the teachers when you request one and you can drop by the principal's office at any time. The Greek and the Philosophy classes are what makes this school unique and knowing another language is always a plus. However, my children are learning more than just a language, they are being exposed to the Greek culture and learning from authentic Greek teachers. This exposure can only help them in the future when they have to work side by side with individuals from different cultures.

Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
