I'm not sure the other person experienced, but I every teacher has a bachelors degree and many have masters degree. At private schools you don;t need to be licensed, you need to know how to teach. Licenses do not ensure class management, skills to relate to urban youth or respectability. I am a former staff member and know that these people put their heart and soul into the learning and development of a difficult population of students.

This school, from Elementary to High School is horrible. I was supposed to be a substitute teacher, but the next thing I knew, I was being assigned duties as if I was a teacher (create curriculums and lesson plans, attend teachers' meetings, etc.). Then I was assigned classes and listed in Jupiter as an actual teacher. I would say about 95% of the staff there are not certified for their position. The only people certified are the people listed on the school's website. One of the administrators had his school shut down a few years back; rumor has it it was in the basement of a restaurant. I find it odd that he, along with the "teachers" are not able to put their name on any official documents. I'm eager to know why he has to keep such a low profile. The books they teach out of are old; I have only seen one textbook from 2010 or later. In addition, there's not even enough books to serve the student population. I have seen a teacher (relative of the owner) tackle and push a kid for disrupting his class. The students' transcripts are all wrong. I can't count how many times I've heard students say, "I took this class already!". The list goes on...It is a horrible school.

Awful, they get staff and students to meet the state requirement. Then excess staff and get rid of bad students after the numbers are turned in to state. There were fights all the time and some classes were like in the movies where kids were throwing things all over the room, loud out of control and doing whatever they wanted. Some staff wouldn't even do all their assigned duties.
