As Krop is my first foray into the public system, I found the bureauocracy maddening but somehow I firmly believe that my child got a good education. The teachers were wonderful. The guidance system was deplorable but luckily our son knew how to guide through courses and we parents knew a lot about college guidance.

Since my son is a magnet student at Michael Krop and very intelligent, I would recommend other parents to use this school. There are some good/bad at every school MKHS is a good choice.

My daughter is currently attending in 10th Gr. Gifted. MKHS is a very good public school, but it is only as great as parent/child make it. Dress code could be better enforced-i.e. low-rise pants and cut-off tops are overlooked yet young girls wearing bermudas reaching down to the knee are turned away at the door??? Current students come from area private Jewish & Catholic schools as well as Highland Oaks. Overall, I recommend the school.

As a graduate of 2002, I am proud to say I did receive a good education from Krop, but i would not send my child there considering the bad atmosphere I was surrounded with. This school has a drug problem and hopefully it will be fixed because the academics in this school are very good.

Most of my child's teachers have a PHD in the subject that they teach. There are no significant violent situations at the school. The teachers offer help to all of their students, and the pass rate for the AP tests are above average. This is an excellent school with district winning sports teams as well.

i think krop is a good school. but i don't want my kids to be janitors or bank cleaners so i think im going to send them to a better school where there isn't so much violence, vandalism, and hiv.

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.
