This school is absolutely the worst school I've ever had the displeasure of being associated with. The Principal is completely disconnected with the staff and students. He dismisses or ignores all complaints, the Deans have a personal relationship with some of the students outside of the school, meaning they go to the same church and know the parents, so they disbelieve ANY issues involving certain students. This school has an abysmal lack of communication with the parents and with themselves. The para PE teachers use pain compliance push up positions if the student doesn't dress out in three minutes, some teachers are on facebook during classtime and ignore the students, others teachers are constantly threatening the students with detention for the smallest infractions. This school seriously needs an entirely new staff that can actually teach and not run it as a prison or bootcamp. This school, for lack of better words, is the absolute worse I've ever seen and with out a PTO to check the staff from time to time, it will always be the same thing. The school board really needs to investigate what is going on in this school rather than giving them carte blance. Just saying.

This is the worst school you could send your child to. They only teach the FCAT. The parents don't get involved. If you have a choice move out of this county so your child gets a fair chance in life.

Three out of four of my children have attended this school, the fourth one will attend one more year of it before going on to the high school. This school is wonderful along with the teachers who have been very helpful to my children and myself. The teachers work very hard to make sure the students have the proper education they need to suceed and I have found the teachers here do go that extra mile to help those who need extra to acheive that goal. My children speak highly of the teachers and if ever they have a problem know that they can count on the help from any of the teachers at the school.
