The experience was good in EHS. It is over crowded but thats not a major issue, students get thru the day. Teachers are good, and they really help you out. One thing is that EHS does not have that many sports.
I love it at my school. Nobody Bullies me and Im very happy their. My teachers care about me and how I do. They make sure I get my work done. I have learned alot and hope to spend my next two years here at Everglades.
Coming from another public school in the area which allows me to compare, I have a very positive opinion about EHS. Issues and concerns that have risen have been addressed immediately and telephone calls/e-mails from teachers and AP have been returned within hours. Intimidation, bullying and harrasment are not tolerated at EHS and action has been taken immediately. You will be surprised how other public schools will handle that ... 'Your child's gotta keep it low key'. What kind of solution/approach is that? We parents need to take responsibility for our children's behavior and actions and not leave it up to the school to deal with. Respect, manners and compassion begin at home.
Even with the over crowding. This principal runs a tight ship and my children are getting a very good education. I'm happy overall
the school is okay but they have a few problems like being super overcrowded. but it has a lot of things to get involved so theres no excuse.
Everglades HS has the potential of being one of the best all around high schools in our county. Have experienced our first year and seen the school fall one grade level to 'C' instead of going up to an 'A', there's a need to correct this with collaborations between our Principal, all Vice Principals Guidance Counselors, teachers, students, and PARENTS. We need more of parent/teachers special meetings to get a good message across that Everglades High will become an 'A' graded school. Lets hear what our teachers need from parents involvment. How to help the counselors so that when parent calls they should be able to return the call within a reasonable time. I,as a parent have always tried hard to help all the kids in my neighborhood who goes to Everglades to focus and get the best grade as possible. Thank you to the school and pricipal.
The large size of EHS severely impacts the learning environment. Students at both ends of the spectrum (i.e., those in advanced classes and those who need special attention) get extra support, while those 'middle of the road' kids fall through the cracks. In addition, we have had a number of occasions where teachers and other staff members did not return phone calls. Guidance Department is not particularly helpful due to the large number of students each Guidance person is responsible for (600-700 each). We are not at all happy with EHS.
There are alot of students here but that doesnt stop the education process. This is an outstanding school to attend.
I couldnt go to Everglades longer then a week...teachers didnt care...they want to get out of there as fast as the students. I want to learn not play and its sad that a student wants it more then all her teachers. Their security is horrible... safe would be the last word I would use for this school! Just research some on the past events that have happened and you wont have to think twice!
Glad to see the 9th graders separated. Should have been done years ago. Now, if you could just get some other sports programs, like gymnastics. Some of these students have never even been on parallel bars or balance beam. What is up with that?? Where is the well rounded physical education? Gymnastics are great for everyone! Too much concentration on football and basketball, and the teams are limited to so few participants.
This school is very crowded. The Math department is in need of help. Many of the Honor's Math teachers are not willing to assist the students because they seem to have this belief that Honor's students can teach themselves.
it's a very good school. a safe enviroment where teenagers could be themselves and not have the ever constant fear of being harrassased or bullied. it's a lovely school with a good ratio of teachers who do in fact want to help children achieve higher goals.
I will agree with the guidance department being chaotic. Trust me when I tell you, I took my daughter to private school after experiencing all the inconsistencies.
The best school in Broward county the math department is in poor condition but everything else is great. By far the most spirited school in the State.
Although Everglades is a fairly new school, they have major work to do when it comes to leadership and the professionalism of the administrators. You can find quality academic programs, but be prepared to do battle if your views are different than some of the staff members. I was happier than my teenager at the graduation ceremony. That chapter is now closed in our family history book. Good luck!
