The school is very clean organize and safe for students. They have lots of extracurricular activities wich is good. However the school is very much academic achievement oriented and that puts a lot of pressure on the kids I have come to the realization that if your kid is below average in academics he or she will usually be left behind and some teachers not all could be really mean about this. The administration is very shut down when it comes to helping with parent-teachers-kids problems usually they side with the teachers and parents feel they are not heard. I have to say they also have very good teachers. Good luck getting one if you do your kid will have a wonderful experience in the other hand if you don't be prepare to have a hard time! Recently the most significant problem I' have encountered has been with spanish teachers in specifc Mr Garcia he yells a lot to the kids and is rude and mean to them so much so that the kids are afraid of him and this in elementary!

This is my son's second year at EBT. He started first grade today. I must say that his Kindergarten teachers Mrs. Valdes and Mrs. Leon were wonderful. He learned so much in their class. I really have nothing bad to say about EBT. I hope this year is as great as last year.
I have a mixed opinion about this school. My daughter was in 2nd grade-gifted and had a great year. Her teacher Ms. Davila is a wonderful caring and dedicated teacher. My daughter felt motivated to make her proud. On the other hand my son who turned 6 this year had a very difficult year. His kindergarten teacher was inpatient and uncaring. He was in detention almost every other week for 1.5 hrs. I met almost every other week with teacher attempting to figure out how to help my son succeed in her class. My son continuously complained that his teacher screamed at him he stated she didn't like him; he did not receive positive reinforcement from this teacher. My son s self-esteem was affected. Needless to say my son is begging me not to go to this school again. As a family we had a very frustrating experience all while we were cooperating and willing to do whatever necessary to help the staff and my son succeed I hope that for first grade he gets assigned a caring teacher At 6 years of age kids are forming their personalities they look up to their teachers and they spend sometimes more hours at school than at home they need all the positive support they can get.
My son has been at EBT for two years (Kindergarten and now 1st grade) and we love it! The education is great the expectations for the students are high which I appreciate and they hold a lot of fun educational activities (field day walk safe career day holiday family dances after school PTA hosts family dinners at places like Applebee's to raise funds for various reasons etc.). EBT doesn't just focus on testing. They also offer extra curricular activities after school and my son truly enjoys them. EBT is a wonderful school!
EBT is a great school the teachers are friendly and concern about students. They are very organized and prepare the students very well. So far I have not complain .
I am in EBT since 7th grade and this is my second year there and all I can say is that it is the best school. The teachers are very kind and they do care about the kid's education. It is extremely clean and the rules are very strict. The teachers help the kids in everything they can. I strongly recommend that school
This review only covers the 3-5 year special education program that is provided at ETB. The rooms and school are physically nice and well kept which merits two stars. The teachers and class structure however are inadequate for our son who is mildly autistic. The classes are too big and he is not receiving the attention he needs. I have come to this conclusion after the teachers asked me to send him in a diaper everyday because they do not have time to potty train him. Ironically he is potty trained and hasn't had an accident in over a month at home at his other school (we also have him at a private school) or when out with us. When he has to go he comes to us and tells us or goes directly to the potty on his own. The reason for the accidents at ETB is because he is not receiving much attention due to class size. The communication between the teachers and the parents is lacking and most reports are stuffed into the bottom of my son's book bag. A perfect example is when we found his IEP report card a week later. If you have a child between the ages of 3-5 who needs to be in a special education class look elsewhere.
EBT K-8 Center is an awesome school. The principal and the teachers are very straight. The school is very clean and it has a lot of fun things to do. The library has tons of interesting books. The classrooms are very organized and clean. The food is delicious and the staff is nice and helpful. Above all the most important part is the community. They are the ones that put all their efforts to make EBT a successful school. I strongly recommend EBT to all students.
Excellent administration teachers facilities and environment. Ms. Ugarte our counselor have been very supportive. This school is academically challenging by following University of Cambridge Curriculum. I highly recommend EBT K-8 Center. My children-2nd and 5th grade gifted love their school!
Mi hija comenzo su ano escolar este lunes y hasta ahora todo me ha parecido fantastico mucha organizacion seguridad las maestras comunicativas mi hija esta encantada!!!
The schools way of handling the children is inexperienced to say the least. The children in the upper academy 6th-8th grade are treated the same way as the elementary students. I was part of the first class to graduate from there k-8 and i was very discontent with the lack of freedom which leads to further issues once these kids enter a high school setting. The purpose of the middle school years are to bridge the gap from elementary to high school yet this purpose seems to have gotten lost somewhere along the way with the creation of K-8 Centers. Do not send you're child to a k-8 center. It defeats the purpose of middle schools and leaves children unprepared to function properly in high schools and in society. Also there were are no sports teams in this school. Middle schools offer a wide variety of team sports most of the time. I'm not sure whether all K-8 Centers or just this one lack team sports but it deprives children of many of the opportunities that a classic middle school offers. A K-8 Center is essential an extended elementary school and pointless. -Former student
Schools are good as the teachers within that school.Good teachers who practice humility kindness compassion and care for all human beings surely will make a difference. If parents need one-on-one or group tutoring for their children please call me Dr. Debbie Persaud @ 786-302-3263. I am a retired MDCPS teacher with a Doctorate in Education MSEd in Teaching English as a Second Language MSABA in Applied Behavior Analysis and is currently in a PhD Clinical Psychology Program. I work one-on-one with children with learning difficulties ADHD ADD and general homework help. I have flexible hours and work with the children in their home environment
My son loves his teacher his friends likes to go to school has improved in all EBT is a great school

This is a horrible school. The staff is very rude uncooperative and over all unwilling to help. The school's disciplinary system is unacceptable the give 60 Minute detentions to mere kindergarten students for the staple of "talking in class" a ridiculous reason considering they are working with 5 year-old's. Overall they lack a sense of patience and severity with their students and the methods of education are dismal to say the least.
Year by year the school improves . Doral is blessed having EBT K_8 . MS Mayra Falcon Principal is doing an oustanding job teachers are excelent and the school is so organized and clean . A+++++++++ My question is why Greatschools rates EBT K-8 only 7/10 ? Must be 10/10
guauuuuu they have to much organitation the teachers are exellent good human been and help the parents thank eugenia b thomas
My children have been attending EBT K-8 Center for the last 6 years and I couldn't be happier with their education. The teachers and administration strongly support the students and encourage parental involvement. My children love their teachers receive personal attention when they need it and feel very safe. The building is always clean and carefully maintained as is the classrooms. The education at EBT K-8 Center is excellent and the students are always challenged to excel. This school has maintained their "A" school status since it opened. The success of this school is due to its exceptional leader Mrs. Mayra Falcon who expects nothing but the best from her staff for the students and community of Doral. She is very knowledgeable of the educational system and is easy to talk to for advice or suggestions. I am very pleased with the excellent education my children are receiving and thank the entire staff of EBT for their commitment and dedication to our youth.
Outstanding school in all aspects. The Principal Mrs. Falcon is the best Dade County has to offer. She is a highly motivatel professional with a high degree of personal integrity. She is an exceptional role modle for her staff student body and community. Her committment to high standards shows throughout her school. The teachers are committed to ensuring students excel academically and socially. Teaching is taken seriously at EBT. Parents are encouraged to participate and support school initiatives and challenged to provide guidance and discipline at home so that the child can be a good citizen in our community. We couldnt ask for a better school for our child. If you are looking for a school where your child will be challenged motivated and lead by example this is your. If you could clone this school's principal our school system would be perfect! Great job to all and thanks for your commitment to excellence. JBF
