The school is amazing. I am enrolled in Coral Reef Senior High and I'm in the IB program. I have to stay although difficult it's really preparing me for something great. This school not only is great academically, the people there are wonderful; everyone I've met hasn't done anything but be nice. This school has a great variety of kids all with different interest. We have 7 different academics. It's also a bully free zone school. I'm honored to be apart of this school. It's definitely worth it, so you should encourage your kids to apply. - submitted by a student

My child had a couple of fantastic teachers. Add in the stinkers that shouldn't be teaching and you end up with "somewhat effective."

This school's somewhat undeserved high reputation is based on its IB and VPA strands, but beware the others, especially Agriscience. It's marketed as Biotechnology, but in reality completely based on Future Farmers of America - think Boy Scouts for farmers and grades based on merit badge type competitions, including memorizing the motto and creed, or buying a stiff cordoroy FFA jacket to swelter in the Miami heat in. Or attending a local church service for "bonding" with your classmates. Yes, really. What did it for us was my child's answer of "respiration" on a SCIENCE test didn't even receive partial credit because the FFA approved answer was "breathing." A complete joke. MDCPS should be embarrassed to even offer this. Also, keep in mind that magnets severely limit your child's elective choices, and foreign languages count as electives. So choose this magnet, and your kid can take FFA and three years of whatever language they choose if they are college bound. The school is also very strict, or at least was under Principal Leal, and students could get in trouble for not having their shirt tucked in, for example. We couldn't get our child out of there fast enough.

Depends who your teachers are. Some just sit behind a desk grading papers and texting.

The school is on block scheduling ( two hour class every other school day) for six classes. At least one of which is your academy class, Coral Reef offers six, one of the most famous is (IB) International Baccalaureate. There are hundreds of clubs, over a thousand teachers and staff, and about 3,200 students. The school pays for most college board tests, like PSAT and AP exams. Enough lockers for the textbooks, and the transition to tablets; one lunch of 45 minutes for club meetings, making friends, studying, and especially eating lunch practically anywhere in the school. The teachers prepare the students for end of the year testing and life lessons needed for college. 10 minutes are allotted from class to class, giving time to communicate to the teachers. Coral Reef teachers spend practically most of their waking hours at school, in teaching, grading, and answering questions the students may have, even providing many ways of contact outside of school for help on homework, or reminders of when future assignments are due. The school is filled with school spirit and many other opportunities for students to pick up a lasting highschool experience. "Don't hide that 'Cuda Pride."

Amount of homework: Just right

Each teacher knows the amount of work other teachers in the same subject give, and the homework is based on previous lessons, all assignments are giving a minimum of two days to complete. Teachers are now posting homework assignments on google classroom and class jump, for easier remembering. It is so little that you don't need an agenda to write it in, but enough to reinforce the information for the end of the year tests.

Each academy has small competitions against the others in community service, and grades, with the counselors pushing us towards good grades in a non-stressful way.
