33 Parent Reviews for Key Biscayne K-8 Center

Key Biscayne is a great place to live if you have children, but the school is overcrowded, teachers from elementary ESOL program( children that are learning to speak english) are very rude, yell a lot and the principal will do nothing about it. I would never recommend this school! Can't wait for ...  Read more

My experience with the school was with the ALL DAY Gifted Program (All day CATS), the program uses the non bilingual score to allow access to the program. It is the best kept secret. Classes are small, teachers are really trained to teach the gifted. (children who learn fast without repetition.). Teachers ...  Read more

Good school but cannot be compared with schools in Broward or Pinecrest. Private evaluations for CATS are always reviewed by school counselors and are not the only criteria for a child to be placed in CATS! Some teachers at this school are great and some are not so good regardless of CATS. In my opinion ...  Read more

Dirty, teachers who don't want to be there, lack of hands on teaching, overcrowded with children who do not even live in region, overcrowded CATs classes filled with unqualified children who's parents have paid private testing to get them in. This school maintains a top rating due to parents paying for ...  Read more

I think it is essential that prospective residents & parents realize there is an effort by a local parent, Manny Cambo, to convert this school to a Charter School. This is why you see so many negative reviews below. You can read about his position in the Herald if you Google "Manny Cambo". I find it ...  Read more

Not a fan of this school. We came from a private school in the NE and this school does not even come close in every aspect. Supposedly a top rated school for district and state??? Academics are solely geared towards the FCATS. Teacher's are hit or miss. Some I will say are very good and caring. ...  Read more

Being as I attended this school for 10 years, I feel as if this school has its flaws just like any other school. I was severely bullied for almost all of elementary and only one teacher actually helped me in my situation. The administration is very relaxed, especially the middle school teachers, however ...  Read more

I moved to Key Biscayne from the Northeast, where the schools are phenomenal. I have friends whose children attend Pinecrest & Palmetto (top-rated schools in Miami-Dade) and considered enrolling them in one of those schools, however, I had heard Key Biscayne K-8 Center was pretty good as well. Let me ...  Read more
