I attended from 2002 - 2006. At the time, it was an A school. After one year, it became a C school, which had to do with redistricting students from underachieving public schools to Taravella. That's when things took a turn for the worst. The school leveled out at a D by the time I left. It was crowded. Teachers were tired. Although, my class had ivy league accepted students, high achieving students, and college-bound students, the following classes were struggling to reach the same level. Unfortunately, busing in students from lower income neighborhoods brought down the overall quality of schooling for everyone.
Horrible school. Administrators do not care about the students and are definitely not interested in their success. I will not waste my time going on about why and who, but this school is not what I thought it would be.
After my son was hit by a woman completely distracted on Monday morning September 16th, 2019 @ 7:07 a.m. while riding his bike to school. I've encountered multiple negative, ridiculous, absurd, rude, disgusting, & down right heartless administrators. Including todays experience. I feel as of right now I have a language issue or barrier even though I speak plain American English that is clear & understandable. I reported all of my issues on Tuesday October 7th, 2019 to The Broward County of Accountability & Service Quality (It should be Equality) and then and only then did I get the principle. After Tuesday evenings conversation I thought the principle & I were on the same page but after today now I'm not so sure. I'm discouraged, upset, mentally & physically drained & I'm trying to get an understanding as to WHY this is happening to me.
i go to that school and the reason why there are taking away a class that I need is called learning strategies for ESE kid and they are taking that away it like another study hall but come on who helps u in study hall but with learning strategies u can get help with a teacher but like come on why are u doing this to an ESE kid don't not send your child here and an another thing is i have to fall a class to get help i mean why this school doesn't even care i have to fail a class to be put in an easy class i mean why it not far and it like no student left behind act i mean i fell left behind this school doesn't care at all
