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!
I feel the school concentrates it's energy's mostly on athletics and not academics. Most of the teachers are coaches which leaves little time to assist the student with question or academic assistance. Security is good and I feel my son is in a relatively safe environment. The counseling dept has much to be desired. Don't expect to get your messages answered. The counseling dept is chaotic and disorganized. It's a new school therefore, I'll give it a few more years to get in shape.
The Quality of academic programs is one the highest I ever seen in the country. I have seen lots of parents involvement in the students quality of teaching for their kids. In the perspective of safety and discipline is among the highest in the state. Even coming to check out your kid, it involves several steps making sure that the parent has the proper ID, etc. Now for the Extracurricular activities specialty in sports I give the school a low 2. Football is a sport that most people love to watch. In my case I seen lots of kids that never get the chance to play. So what is the policy? MUST WIN!. Students come to practice to later find out that they may never get to play at all. What kind of self steam these students are getting?. An another year goes by.
This school is so-so. If you have extra money, send them to a private school if you want good education. I think it's fine. The people aren't very nice, but my group of friends are cool. And there are many activities.
Excellent academic programs and extracurricular activities. Overcrowded.
We are very happy with the school so far. I feel very safe having my child here, teachers have been very good and the BAND program is SUPER!
I go to everglades. It is an ok school, we have our share of trouble but overall it isn't that bad...
As a former student of EHS all I can do is rave about it. The principal and staff are homey and welcoming making the school feel like a self enclosed family. The spirit at this school is remarkable - if your a student, you better be ready to show your gator pride. There is so much that can be said about Everglades, but most of it has to be felt - simply an amazing high school experience!
This school is great. my son loves his teachers and the campus. The involvement of the teachers in after school activities is great.
I think this school has a great future, the building looks like a correctional center, nevertheless it has a high level of technology. The student body is mostly african american and hispanic (in my opinion), teachers are OK but could be better. Staff is friendly. A lot of problems arise due to fights. Nevertheless is a good school for newcomers.
