This school has no spirit at all it is honestly the worst school I've ever been in they put you in csi for no reason someone had a tinyLogo on their polo and they sent her to CSI and the electives suck here I think ferg is the best school compared to varela THE VIPERS SUCK GO FALCONS *++ the teachers are too old and don't what to do on the grade book!!!!!

This school has the best Veterinary magnets I have ever seen. Ms. Escobar is a determined teacher that knows what she's doing. I am currently a sophomore attending the school and it has been a great experience that will help me with my future career. I have learned a lot about animals and currently own a goat on campus. Any students who really wants to pursue the veterinary career should attend this school because it is honestly the best veterinary program this is. You will get to learn hands on about the veterinary field and you will have a wonderful time.

I have been teaching at Varela since the school opened in 2000. I don't mean to say it's a perfect school but Varela is definetly one of the best High Schools in Miami. It is a safe, nurturing, and academically challenging learning environment for students. Ms Fins, her administrative team, staff and teachers work very closely and efficiently in order to meet the needs of the students and parents. The activities director is demanding but amazing: all the Varela events, Homecoming dance, Grad Bash, Senior luncheon, Prom have always been top notch and classy. There are wonderful musical events (Coffee night, Battle of the bands, &concerts) and Theater/Broadway productions well worth the $5 entrance. Overall, there is great school spirit. The school buildings and school grounds are very clean. Besides the different magnets, Varela offers dual-enrollment and has one of the best AP programs in the County. Of course, some teachers are better than others and some classes are more interesting than others but overall, this is a great choice for your child's High School education.---an objective teacher with an insider's view
