There are many teachers who genuinely care and teach well, but that does not go for all of them. The securities are absolute jerks. I tried going through a hallway where two students just went through. Despite a sign saying there was "gym testing", I figured I could go through. The security said "What? Can't you read? Get out". Extremely rude and unprofessional behavior.
The school is very in organized. Some teachers are good at what they do and others are sloppy. My teacher smokes a vapor shark in class and is rude at times. The best teacher I have is Ms.Rahouly. She is the best math teacher you will probably ever meet. Other than her I don't know any other teacher who is dedicated to his/her work and I think that should be something to talk about in a faculty meeting. Some teachers are very lazy and they are sitting down most or maybe all of class time. They teach a little and then assign book work. Other than that the school is ok. The school is maintained but not all the time. I see rotten food in the stair ways and sometimes roaches. There are reasons why I'm leaving this school. I don't suggest this school to anyone.
On a yearly basis my son complains claiming that nearly 50% of his teachers lack group control skills. They grade students basically for minimum efforts in class such as buying things from the teachers or buying basic school supplies for them. Students can get average to good grades with VERY MINIMAL EFFORTS on their behalf. They are not challenged intellectually and sadly over 50% of the students are so far behind in the minimum skills required to be at they should be at, that they drag the other percent down. Many claim to use email as a communication tool but many answer way over 2 days and even a week so by the time you get a response... the issue is beyond repair. Impossible to get sit downs with ALL teachers at once, even when escalating things to the principal. Only office that is efficient is the Registration Office. Mederos is Top Notch quality and seems to be the only one who knows how to run her area as per high standards. Had it not been because its so near graduation year, I'd move to another country!! HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED!
I am a student a coral park it is a good school.The magnet program is the best engineering program in Miami.It is the 4th school in the Miami Dade District that has Advance Placement classes.The only problem will be is the Miami Dade County public school system is giving less money and dependent on only test to tell a student a abilities.The school has a great band,great teacher,And great everything.
My daughter was in 9th grade for a few months at Coral Park High. She always attended the neighborhood school from 1st. grade and had never had such problems that she had in this school. The school has illegal substance problems and my 15 years old daughter is no longer in that school, but the students who provided those substances inside the school are still attending the school. The communication within school staff and parents is terrible. In obtaining an unsuitable and inapropriate transfer process, transfer, the completely out of time administration, made me waist one whole morning in the school. Besides, the school is clean, high security, and in good conditions.
THis scholl is not prepared for the Arts programs. A new building was built for that purpose and is not being used for the arts. Yes there are arts classes but no emplmentation of the ffeedback from the students as far as performances are encouraged. The Principal does not understand the Arts
