I agree with the concern of the parents about security and safety. the do forget to close the gates many time and is really easy to get in, I am there every day dropping of my children. I think many of the teachers are great and my children do awesome and get great grades but they do need better security ...  Read more

From first hand knowledge in working at this school, I can honestly say this has got to be the worst school in Miami, Florida. I highly recommend all parents to do something about the safety, discipline and classroom morale in this school. Students are allowed to roam the hallways and school office ...  Read more

My child had so much preparation for the FCAT test. It was almost too much with nothing else taught. Parents are hesitant to be involved because they all work. New principal is impossible to meet with because she is always gone. Assistnat principels seems to be good. My child is in the 5th gifted ...  Read more

It needs to have more involvement from the teachers to the students.

I believe that the school has no disciplne at all. In the morning children are without any supervision, left to play at their own risk. Also, everytime you try to meet with the Principal or assit they are nowhere to be found or unavailable.
