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.

Increasing birth rates among immigrant families from Asia and Central and South America, combined with lower birth rates among white families, means that for the first time in history, public school students in the United States are majority-minority. This shift in demographics poses difficulties for schools as they work to accommodate children of varying language abilities and socio-economic backgrounds.
Being a parent is never easy, but some children are more challenging than others. If you're concerned that your child's behavioral issues might be more than just temporary, consider whether an alternative school might be the next move.

Alternative schools provide students with unique challenges or abilities an opportunity to succeed in a different educational setting.
