I am a freshman and I am pretty neutral about this school. There are good things and bad things. Since I am one of the gifted children, the teachers are better but some of the non gifted children get terrible teachers. Some of the better aspects of this school are that there are many activities after school although the school does not provide transportation for these activities. A lot of people at this school also smoke or do hookah which makes this school a disappointment. I like this school but the students that don't care much about their school life make this school worse. And another thing, there is a teacher at the school who just stands in the hallway criticizing everyone and sending then to CSI. I was coming back from PE and had not put my ID on yet and the teacher saw and sent me to CSI. I was not pleased. The teachers that I have are very friendly and they have a lot of experience. enough to know if you are having trouble or not. I hope my review has helped the community out there. I would want this school to improve by monitoring their students more and taking away the students' drugs and harmful objects.
The academics at this school are the best in the County. Test scores are through the roof and the students get into Ivy League colleges. This school has more silver Knight winners than any other school in Dade or Broward. If your child is serious about going to college, this is a great school. The staff is seasoned and amazing. Don't hesitate to check this school out for your child. The Principal, Ms. Baglos is incredible.
Horrible teaching staff. My daughter had 4 different math teachers in a course of a year! Their staff is impatient and seem to care nothing about the children and their education. I took her out of that school the following year!
My son real like that and the football team he's in the magnet program i'm happy to see he's grades go up.
Great School my child travels from Miami Beach to go to magnet orchestra program. Also school stresses disapline and safety.
Also, to add. The discipline at this school is unbelievable. Every day after school ask what the kids are doing? Smoking by the bus lanes. And No one cares. Every day when I go down the stairwells i smell marijuana. Kids get disciplined for the petty, small things like being 1 minute late to class and having to clean up trash instead of learning.
Some of the school office staff are rude when it comes to helping you out for anything that has got to do with your child and they are rude to the student also and it shouldn't be that way at all but it is happening and it is not right and I hope they are able to either counsel the office staff to be more courteous and professional or get people that really want to work with parents and students.
I was a good kid until i let krop get the best of me. Im sure their extra cirricular activities along with the gifted programs are great. But i wasnt apart of it nor was i ever reccomended by teachers or staff to join anything that might have helped me gain some interest in school. Maybe i was too focused on trying to be one of the 'cool kids'. I want to say more maybe help parents understand what their kids are going through but im just going to keep it short and say krop needs to work on student parent involvement and i dont mean waiting till the kid gets in trouble before it can happen
krop is the best school in florida period .. i dont know what u are talkin sbout but this school is highly organized
As a parent of two, I am proud that both my sons graduated from Krop. The teachers were all amazing. The athletic program was fabulous and has won the number 1 program in Dade County at least two or three times. The number of clubs students can participate in is incrediable. The school is over crowded and like as can be expected not all schools can accomidate all students. You can never please everyone. If your child is involved in school activities, sports, and is motivated they will surley succeed at Krop. Krop also has a very involved PTSA that does great things for the school. Check with them, they are an excellent resource for you. Good Luck
Krop is a very disorganized school, and it's administration lacks communication within it's staff. There are several good teachers, and the NJROTC program is amazing, with very involved instructors.
I am so dissapointed with this school. My Child is a freshman and in the gifted program. 3 out of her 6 teacher's hardly teach because of the two hour blockl. The kids have lots of free time to get in trouble. The grade book for the parent to view online is hardly ever updated and you should see some of the things they count as grades. We don't have another high school in the area that is any better, but to hear and see people raving about this school is presposterous. The office staff is very unfriendly and condescending. As a parent of a freshman student I am appalled at their lack of consideration and professionalism. If you want to meet or speak with the teachers, they don't return your calls and the students are treated for the most part like convicted felons.
I am a new parent and right now i'm doing a lot of observing! so far i like how the kids get a lot of exposure to many things! they have so many committees the kids can join and i like it because of the diversity in children! yes its very overcrowded but you have to ask yourself why and how are they able to stay and 'a' school when other schools say thats one of the reasons they're failing. The biggest problem i am having is trying to be involved the faculty n staff act as if they never have time and whenever i try to be involved or is concerned about something they act as if i'm bothering them. Sorry b ut my daughter not having a text book like everyone else or my her grades is 'our' problem not just hers!
I was part of the Visual and Performing Arts program, but overall the faculty there is great. They take an interest in the student's future and preparing them for college. I wouldn't have gotten such great scholarships if I hadn't gone to this school. I was supposed to go to Carol City Senior.
I didnt like this school for my son. there were alot of kids who picked on him and beat him up
This has got to be the worst school I have ever dealt with. I come from a family of teachers and the attitdue of the administrators and teachers is disgraceful at the best of times. The administration has no regard for parents or the students. I personally have witnessed teachers and administrators berate students without a second thought. My son comes home everyday angry and frustrated. The school is terribly overcrowded and has two campuses and requires Freshman to switch between the two campuses, which can get very confusing for children just starting High School. Classes are so overcrowded and teachers don't have control over the classrooms. They don't teach, they yell, lecture and ignore students asking for clarification or help. We are moving just to get my son away from it. Stay away you'll regret it.
I love Krop. It diverse student population is amazing and most of the teachers are amazing and inspiring.
i attend this chool and it is the best of all my other schools it is nice and big with aot of nice teachers that attend...... my school rocks
My two kids love the school. Even we move away from it, they still go back to it. I am happy to see the school received an 'A' school rate for this year. Great reason to send my kids there even we have to pay much more gasoline for driving.
Dr.Michael Krop is a great school.Teachers are excellent and actually TEACH there curriculum well. I recommend Krop for those in Dance or any other magnet program.
