Arvida Middle School 3

The school has an excellent music program. If your child is into music, this is the best! However, the security and the supervision is not so great. A lot of fights (mostly with girls) go unnoticed by the security staff. With todays technology, everyting gets recorded, so you can google "Fights at arivda middle" and can see for yourself. Just because its an "A" school, doesnt mean that it is safe. If there is a bullying situation, administration does take care of it, but what they need is prevention. They need to nip it in the bud BEFORE it escalates.

I am very happy with arivida's music program and academics. I had a hard time deciding between arvida and Ammons but their orchestra won me over. If your child is musically inclined, then arvida is the place to be.

Arvida Middle School has impressed me as a superb school that emphasizes challenging students to ensure they success not just in high school but beyond. The teachers maintain a high caliber curriculum and the principal is both well liked and highly effective. The music program is exceptional under the auspices of Ms Ventura. My son has evolved academically, musically, and socially in this crucial middle school years thanks to this excellent school, its staff, and administration.

This school has been a blessing. My children went to a local charter school, and were emotionally neglected and bullied. Arvida is great and so is the staff....

Initially, I was apprehensive about my daughter attending Arvida. How wrong I was! This is absolutely, without a doubt, THE BEST middle school I have ever seen. For starters, academics are important. My daughter was completely "set up" to apply at the top magnet schools in the county. She not only excels academically, she learned to play cello. What an incredible opportunity! From the principal to the faculty, nearly every one of the her classes were top notch. One thing that I like about Arvida, as compared to a charter school or K-8 center, is the diversity of opportunities students have. This is a full-fledged middle school, complete with shop, orchestra, band, art, dance, and many, many other electives. Your child can explore so many things and gain experience, if they choose. I found that charter schools, and K-8 centers offer only a "taste" of minimal electives. ARVIDA ROCKS!!!
