    This is one of the best schools in the state. This school allows you to take your courses at your own pace. If you get far enough ahead you can finish the course early and take another one. The entire point of this personalized learning is to have the ability to go far beyond what any school can teach you. Where other schools you have a standard "teacher at the front of class" scenario in iPrep you have the ability to go into break-out rooms where you do individualized learning. iPrep is a fun experience where instead of a teacher boring you friends are around you to keep you entertained. Work always gets done. The only people that don't do well are the ones that want to leave the school.

    Great school! Every student here last year passed the EOC exams and a very high percentage of students here 94% passed the FCAT exams. There are very rigorous classes here as all of the classes at this school are composed of either Advanced Honors or AP classes. The best part about this school that appeals to most students is the fact that each student gets their own laptop to keep for FREE for the duration of the school year. Very awesome school! Should get more recognition and acknowledgment.
