Great discipline and structure! Primary focus is academics and curriculum/schedule is not interrupted by unnecessary activities. Also, has a great sports program!

Archimedean not only offers the best education in South Florida, but your child is treated as an individual. Ms. Moysidis, the Middle school principal, and the teachers all get involved with your child's education and well being, no other school cares more for their students in an academic and personal level than the Archimedean Schools, the elementary, Middle and Upper Conservatory.

GREAT SCHOOL! GREAT TEACHERS and PRINCIPAL! Excellent curriculum, high standards, safe environment for the students, personal attention to each student by every teacher.
—Submitted by a teacher


Posted October 3, 2009

Archimedean provides both a rigorous learning environment alonside a supportive and engaged network of both teachers and students!! The are several intellectual and extracurricular opportunities for students to interact with their peers that have made Archimedean the 3rd top school in all of Florida. Not only do the students have the opportunity to grow mentally and emotionally, but teachers too have the opportunity to learn many new things from what in my experience have been truly amazing and open-minded children. Archimedean is a major hub of future leaders, artists, writers, scientists, and even educators, and I have no doubt it will remain so for many years.

It has a superior educational level where students are challenged while still encouraged to perform at their greatest ability. Even as intellectual developement is nurtured the school still finds time to also provide the studetns with the arts, physical education and extra curricular activities such as school sport teams which they also excell in.

I love AMC! The teachers are so easy to get along with and it is so easy to make friends! The work is not at all hard but a bit time consuming. The staff is great and every day is a fun day!

This school is by far one of the most marvelous schools to ever lay on this earth. I have been here for 7 years and I am still satisfied. The only problem is that the staff and the teachers the president and everything is too good they are so good at what they do its scary! I am class president of 7D and I know when i see a spectacular school. I am so happy!

Archimedean Middle Conservatory is an exellent school even though my friends say its too hard . Our curriculm is amazingly advanced beacuse we are learning things that they are teaching in high school ! I dont see how the Greek language is going to help us later on but whatever.

I love the school.In my opinion it is the best school in Miami-Dade.The best teachers, parents, staff.Who could ask for more?
—Submitted by a student


Posted September 2, 2007

There is no other school I'd rather have my child in. Teachers in the Conservatory give serious individual help to all students and watch over them as if they were their own children. Parents who complain about the Academy or Conservatory need a serious reality check. The Conservatory educates students in middle grades, so teachers naturally spend less time communicating with parents because the children are older and able to take more responsibility for themselves; however, compared with any other middle school and any other school for that matter, the teachers remain available and contact parents with concerns and updates before anything really serious might happen. Only someone misguided by a lack of understanding would think otherwise.

The Archimedean Middle Conservatory prides itself on organization, employees work hard on communicating with parents through newsletters, sending informational packets with students and addressing concerns individually.Principal and staff are always willing to listen and provide a solution.
—Submitted by a staff


Posted January 8, 2007

Archimedean Conservatory is a very good school but is lacking organization and above all teacher to parent communication as it is defineitely not the same as with the Academy. Academically it is a great school and the Principal is excellent.

The FCAT 2.0 is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Florida. The FCAT 2.0 has 5 achievement levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 5 the highest. Florida considers scores of level 3 and higher to be on or above grade level. The goal is for all students to score at or above level 3.

About the tests


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.
