    The school is very small compared to other schools but it's great. The staff and the school principal are very friendly and they knew EVERYONE'S names. The 8th grade teachers are the best ones because even though I wasn't in any advanced classes I'm proud to say that my FCAT scores were outstanding being that I achieved a 5 in Reading. MOST of the students are friendly. There aren't many elective choices but the best ones are piano and chorus. I cried a lot at graduation because I would really miss the school and the people I grew up with. Great learning experience. Class of 2014!

    Best school ever! My kids have never been so pushed to work so hard. Though the elective choices are limited compared to doral academy the teachers for each one are WAY better. Ms. Cid can make you a pro singer in one year and Ms. Jimenez proves to you that you can draw.

    I love this school. My son just started in the 6th grade this year but for what i've seen the staff have it will put together. Even thow some problems where encounter they still managed to open on time and are very nice and that to me tells me that the kids are a priority to them. Unlike another Charter school in Doral where you go in the office and they are just plain nasty. It's not even worth saying the name of that other school but I BELIEVE WE MADE THE RIGHT DECISION BY SELECTING THIS CHARTER SCHOOL. THANK U SO MUCH TEACHERS AND STAFF. MAY GOD CONTINUE TO BLESS THIS SCHOOL AND EVERY ONE IN IT.

    The school administration has not made themselves completely available for any concerns that parents have. First of all the added pressure of teaching to the FCAT's the administration has become one dimensional in their goals. We need to put the children's future above all else and for right now it seems more of a fiscal challenge with added state funds to compensate FCAT results without any regard for the kid's own feelings. The middle school has the potential to success. Cultural diversity is a problem here as well. If you not of hispanic culture you child will be lost. Need more teachers from different backgrounds. That's a must!!!

    'After reading some of the comments made about this school it made me feel justified in my opinion. I am not really impressed with the leadership at this school. It is quite unwelcoming and unfriendly. So much for a family atmosphere. There is indeed a fine line between being a strong leader and abusing your 'power.' They also seem pre-occupied with what they 'don't have to do' because they are a charter school rather then do their best to help children succeed. Their enrichment program is mediocre. In some ways they don't live up to the hype and the money they charge is ridiculous.
