4 years later I appreciate my old high school like no tomorrow. I met all of my friends there. I wasnt the best student but I look back and realize I had great teachers. AP smith was the best. Just dont get on his bad side. Hes not as bad as people think he is. He always had my back. Not sure how the school is now. Just enjoy it and make the best of it.
I will gladly be leaving everglades high-school, and will not return gladly because of the need for reevaluation for teachers and staff. Why are the most critical subjects handed to teachers that can not teach?!! Also, Everglades is not a very pleasant school, and my experience during my time here was miserable. Some teachers tend to favorite others, and some teachers have TERRIBLE passing rates, I will never understand why they were rewarded as an "A" school. Why should I settle with a fake A school like this one? I have to say the best and motivating teachers at the school had to be the AP teachers whom show their care for the students besides their paychecks.. THE KIDS ACT TERRIBLE TO TOP IT OFF TRYYY TO ME
I think Everglades is good....what makes Everglades bad is that some students are mean to others and sometimes they don't realize the importance of education.
My Daughter is in 11 grade, she been in Everglades since 9 grade. At first I was nervous & scared. I would hear so many bad things about that school, Especially about the students & teachers. So far my Daughter is doing great. The school is not that bad!
I have a son in the school now and one child that has already graduate from the school. I see a difference in the school now with the new principal, Mrs. Darbar. She cares about the students and is very interested in parents, students and an of their concerns!
Honestly, Everglades isn't that bad. There are fights and incidents in every school. If the student is focused and build a relationship with the teacher they will succeed. I f the teacher sees that the child wants to better themselves they will help. We also have the biology teacher of the year and most of the teachers are very highly credited. The JROTC program is outstanding and will encourage everyone to take the course. I love it
This school is average in my opinion but the teachers at this school really dont care about you, well the freshman teachers..... The students here are OK but some are terrible. I give Everglades a three star
I am a freshman in high school and i do not like Everglaeds at all. Most of the teachers do not even teach. The people their are rued amd motionless. The students dress nastly and do not act with intelligence at all. If you want your child to go to a school where they can get a good education and freinds DO NOT SEND THEM TO EVERGLADES!!!!!!
I truly believe that this is a great school, my son graduated from Everglades in 2008, having no problems to get into various colleges because his academic preparation and my daughter is also graduating soon so I can definitely say how great it is..!
My son goes there and i can say this school has improved his attitude alot . All the teachers are great and care about all there students. I think alot of parents should send there kid here , you wont regret it .
this school is really good i encourage any parent to send their child there. the students and teachers there are very nice and its a friendly enviroment
I am a parent of (2) 10th graders this year... I am very impressed with the level of security, professionalism of the staff and the family feel that's received from the over 2800 students this year... I really hope it stays the same or get even better so that my children graduate in 2 more years... Let's go Gators!
My daughter just completed 9th grade and I was very impressed by the visibility of the principal every morning and security. The campus is pretty big compared to what my daughter was use to so I loved the fact that they kept them in one area. Guidance was very heipful and informative. Teachers were pretty good but maybe time for some to retire. Lots of clubs and activities to stay involved. Overall a good first year! Looking forward to an even better one this fall!!
I am a graduate from the class of 06 and my brother will be attending this school soon. I felt their was a bit of a rift between regular students and more advanced students. A student who challenges themselves with honors and AP classes will receive a quality education with teachers who are motivating, demanding, and they are some of the best in Broward. Mr Most, Mrs Samson, Mrs Warner and many more will go above and beyond in making sure you are academically competitive with the best in the state. However if your student wants to just be average. Their are teachers who will pass you just to get them out of their class. The school does offer an academy for students who struggle and it's full of problem kids. They are required to take JROTC and it is a good experience to get them back on track. Go Gators!
My daughter just completed her first year here and has done extremely well. She likes her teachers, they motivate her to learn, make her classes fun and interesting. She has made friends. Although she was a little afraid her first day; she wishes the year had not ended so quickly. This school offers so much academically; allows students to express creativity; campus is clean,safe; staff is courteous; organized. Always preparing students for college.
my kids first year and last at everglades, I found the quality of the majority of the teachers is very poor. They do not focus or have any motivational skill for teens to do well. I hear it from my daughter and all her friends there. regret having her go there teachers dont know the impact on teenagers they can have.
This school is AWESOME! I love it, it holds a magnificent and plethora of events to become involved in, and you make friends where ever you go. It gives you a pre-taste of the outside life, being on your own, and handling you own business. Everglades gives you an opportunity to succeed, giving us the ability to graduate with above 24 credits with our block schedule. It's just so darn awesome, I love it !
im a student that just transfered from american senior high to everglades & i must say the difference between the two schools are amazing, people think that american is a low class school but where people dont see is the effort that the teachers put in everyday. besides everglades teachers lack discipline and leadership & the students are spoiled and rude. thats my view from a student.
Everglades high school not only has academic excellence, but it also has a superb fine arts program, particularly the drama, choral, and band programs
My Son just graduated from Everglades and was a great experience for him and for the entire Family.. It's definitely and excellent school, he is really well prepared for college in all aspects..
