    I cant seem to find good schools in Broward except Somerset Miramar Academy has great reviews and they are A Grade School 9 out of 10. I recently enrolled my son at this school because we moved from Dade to Broward. its a great school however my son is not doing well it's frustrating not sure if to transfer him to another school...He had all A's and B' in his previous school..I feel there are two many students per teacher and lack of student discipline. It makes it difficult to students to focus and learn.

    Principal and administrative office staff Inaccessible Small tiny classrooms without bathrooms therefore Overcrowded In general the school lack in discipline the students do almost wherever they want The smart kids are not encouraged and the bad kids take over the school

    The principal and administration is inaccessible. The principal in particular is not very friendly. Luckily the teachers are great.

    School is excellent however teachers lack the patients needed to deal with teens they also lack compassion and there are too young therefore experience is not on there side...

    This is my daugther's first year of school (kindergarten) and I couldn't have been more nervous but she loves going to school and is already reading. The staff is great and she's made great friends. I look forward to all the opportunities that she'll be exposed to.

    I would absolutely recommend this school to any parent. It's a small close knit school and the teachers and faculty not only recognize the children by face but the parents as well. I love that there's a great deal of parent involvement and parents/care takers are always welcomed. I am very grateful that my middle school and elementary school age kids were given the opportunity to attend Somerset Academy - Miramar

    My son has been attending attending Somerset Miramar since 1st grade he's now in 5th grade and my daughter recently joined him. She is in kindergarten. I love this school not only because it's in walking distance from my house but more importantly they have a very strong curriculum. The teachers hit the ground running on day one they are strict yet fair with every student. The principal Mrs. Sadesky runs a very good administration and keeps the parents well informed. I really enjoy the volunteer opportunity because it allows the parents to be involved in so many different ways with their child's academic development.
