My child started last year at this school and she struggled to maintaining her grades. I made an effort to meet with the teachers at the beginning of the year, call serveral times during the year. The only way I got any response from the teachers is because of the guidance counselor going and requesting for them to call. Needless to say they were of very little help, my attemp to keep in touch with them was of no availe. No one really cared weather the child does well in school or not. I am totally dissatisfied with this school and unfortunately my choices are limited.
Miramar is ravaged by poor leadership and extreme micromanagement. If me as a parent can see it I can only wonder what the teachers have to deal with. It concerns me as a parent that the teachers are working under these conditions because it only forces the teachers to not care about my child and forces them to focus on checking blocks and covering their A_ _. Sorry for the languages
Poor leadership and I have not received any automated calls to my home in reference to any on-going activities. This school does not interact with the parents.
I attended this school and i am in the IB program. the school has a great IB program, much better than Boyd Anderson. The school may be bad at first but later in a few days it will get better. the IB kids are smart and not bad.
After recently dealing with the administration of this school I find that the Assistant principals I was bounces around from, make it obvious that knowone speaks to anyone and they are terrified to make a decision on there own. The 'ill get back to you' attitude I received from three different administrators, Shows the level of Micro-Management that has not allowed the administrsation to spread its wings and therefore making it impossible for the kids and the their parents to truly forge ahead. Check the block and keep the school board off our behinds is the basic message they are sending out to the parents teachers and the children. There is poor leadership and it shows in the way they treat there teachers.
miramar high has many new programs for students to enrolled in I believe miramar high is a school for the future. this school is doing wonders for me I;m getting more involved and the school is fun. plus miramar gives us means to prepare for our future but having program that shows us what being in this employment is all about.
This is a common fact that if the leadership is not good productivity is bad. The New Principal is an old employee. The employee speak horrible about each other as well as the Asst Principle and Principles. It seems that no one take responsibility to their errors, this was the first year for my son to attend Miramar. It seems that if you are a good student and mind your business, the bullies like to pick on you. Staff is ignorant and deaf to the parent complaints. Watch your children grade and even if you are not welcome be involved.
Very disappointed with the (pre) IB program at Miramar and the teachers also. Lack of communication between teachers and students. My daughter did well in the program, however she'll not be returning next school year. The only saving grace there is Mr. Lamb (the fairly new IB director). Teachers, please take a leaf from this gentleman's book! I do hope this program improves in the near future.
This is my son first year at Miramar High School. This school has a lot of area of concern starting from communication among school personnel and parents. Listen to your children when they come home. The most important thing is check the school website and your children grade in every class every week. The extracurricular activities are both good and bad, it seems the coaches expectations are very high. The level of parent involvement is not very good.
The IB is a very good program. The principal knows very little however.
it has an excellent IB program. There are really good teachers there.
The principal is great the IB program needs lots of work. Security is great, great students, well behaved.
I had a son enrolled in the IB at another school (BA). Now my other son is attending IB at Miramar HIgh. I think the quality of the program and of the teachers at this school is not the same. Some teachers of core classes are not competent. The school should have the necessary tools to evaluate instructional capacity and teaching skills of the teachers assigned to the program. Talented students deserve talented teachers.
Im a student at Miramar High School. Have been attending it for 2 years. It's an ok school, they have certain areas they can work at and make better. Some of the teachers and staff are understanding and willing to help if you need it. There is alot of confrontation,fighting and showing no respect to teachers and staff at this school.
I had to speak with the Principal about a problem, and I found he was easily accessible and responsive to our needs. He resolved the problem in a very encourging manner. My review is based on my observance and my daughter's performance both academic and otherwise. She does excellent in the program at Miramar High School. She speaks well and highly of the teachers; enjoys the program she is in; enjoys associating with her peers; and is highly motivated in studying and school attendance. I'm very glad I made the choice to send her to Miramar High School, as I was quite reluctant to do so, and hope the school continues to get all the support it needs so the students can benefit fully from their individual program.
This school offers a wide range of academic programs, including the prestigious International Baccalaurette program, the Aviation Magnet as well as several AP and Honor classes. Many students of this school can usually find an activity that fits their interests, and if they do not find what they like in the varied menu of more than 30 clubs and organazations ranging from the Web Design Club to JROTC, then they will find the support from the student body to start one of their own. Another quality of the school to be noted, is its constant progress in implenting technology apt for the new millenium. The school gives one laptop to every student. Socially, the student will be able to fit in the eclectic make-up of the school, where there is respect and tolerance for each other's unique differences.
Overall has been satisfied with the I.B. magnet program at this school. I'm still concern with the safety issue at this school. During this school year the school was chosen to be a part of the technology pilot study. This is just another example of the students a minority school again being used as guinea pigs; as a parent I'm sick of it. Students were supplied with lab top computers.
Miramar was a great school. I loved it. I was there for three years and I thought the teachers were wonderful, the students were friendly, and the overall atmosphere was fabulous.
