School Reviews

5   3/23/2009
The teachers are great and they care about the student very much. I was an honors student while at Everglades and the honors teachers are stellar. There is a wide variety of extracurricular activities too many clubs to list in the review. The school itself is pretty new it was built a few years ago. The staff is amazing and security is tight so nothing bad happens. Dr. Fetcher runs a tight school.
