    On a yearly basis my son complains claiming that nearly 50% of his teachers lack group control skills. They grade students basically for minimum efforts in class such as buying things from the teachers or buying basic school supplies for them. Students can get average to good grades with VERY MINIMAL EFFORTS on their behalf. They are not challenged intellectually and sadly over 50% of the students are so far behind in the minimum skills required to be at they should be at that they drag the other percent down. Many claim to use email as a communication tool but many answer way over 2 days and even a week so by the time you get a response... the issue is beyond repair. Impossible to get sit downs with ALL teachers at once even when escalating things to the principal. Only office that is efficient is the Registration Office. Mederos is Top Notch quality and seems to be the only one who knows how to run her area as per high standards. Had it not been because its so near graduation year I'd move to another country!! HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED!

    My daughter was in 9th grade for a few months at Coral Park High. She always attended the neighborhood school from 1st. grade and had never had such problems that she had in this school. The school has illegal substance problems and my 15 years old daughter is no longer in that school but the students who provided those substances inside the school are still attending the school. The communication within school staff and parents is terrible. In obtaining an unsuitable and inapropriate transfer process transfer the completely out of time administration made me waist one whole morning in the school. Besides the school is clean high security and in good conditions.

    THis scholl is not prepared for the Arts programs. A new building was built for that purpose and is not being used for the arts. Yes there are arts classes but no emplmentation of the ffeedback from the students as far as performances are encouraged. The Principal does not understand the Arts

    I have gone thru this school two times with two of my boys already. The staff is excellent. The principal is outstanding the parents can do more if they would go to meetings and get involved!. My personal experience has been great and now with the uniforms they all know each other and all the schools have fights

    Great curriculum! Students are challenged both academically and extra curriculum activities. One of the finest faculty around and a great administration.

  • (6 years ago)

    I believe the school is very good academically. My child's teachers have been top notch and very well qualified in their respective subjects. The principal and assistants have always made themselves readily available to address any concern. What I do find appalling is the lack of respect and consideration we the parents receive from the office staff. How many more parents have to pose this concern before it gets addressed?

    This school is OVERCROWDED the staff dont even care if u are in the office waiting for hours just to talk to a counselor.

    This school is very overcrowded. As a parent you must make it a priority to stay connected otherwise you will be at a loss. The teachers seem to respond well to parents that are involved. I had the pleasure of being guided by my daughters counselor which has made all the difference. Essentially with all of the challenges and there are plenty it is what you make of it. Mandatory uniforms have been a blessing!!

    Great school! I have three stgudent in this school. Well qualify faculty and staff.Uniform has made a positive impact on school appearance. Great administration run school like a clock based on the fact that has almost 4000 students. A gem which should be monitored many will be speaking about this school.

  • (7 years ago)

    Definitely overcrowded conditions that hinders the educational process. Communication between school and parents is vague and difficult to attain at times. There's a sense that the faculty and administration is overwhelmed with the number of students thereby causing a disservice to the students and communications with the home.

    The school seems to be ood. A bit too many kids but what can you possibly do. A bit too over crowded but the kids do learn.

  • (8 years ago)

    The school has greatly improved with the new addition and less crowded classrooms. Teacher quality has always been excellent.

  • (8 years ago)

    Not a great school. Fights every day usually broken up by police. The teachers on the other hand are where this school really shines. The P.E. staff espcially driver's ed are great. As are most of the academic teachers.

  • (8 years ago)

    So far so good. A big change with uniform the only thing is know they have to inforce it.The new building will give a little breathing room on the over crowed situation. In the education department we need more programs for after school and saturday classes not only for the Fcats but for the Sat which it has become a very hard test to pass.Sport department some of them need to change coaches they just are there for the money not for victory. Security they need to step it up a little more on the after school situation. There are many children that stay and run around the halls for sports clubs classes or to bump around and they must make sure that the security is there.On the issue of traffic well Dade County needs to finish the construction and ASAP.

    I'm an Alumna from CP. They offer great extracurricular activities (e.g. band chorus great drama dept. football etc.). From my own experience I found the campus to be diverse and very middle-of-the-road. I did not encounter any gang or drug problems in my three years there. I did not notice an emphasis in parent involvement overall. The parents of kids in sports or band/ROTC were the most involved but other parents weren't as involved. The professors teaching the higher level classes (e.g. AP) were of the highest quality. In summation CP has a great band and ROTC program. Their drama program is also extraordinary.
