    The teachers in this school are all grade F teachers, not including the original teachers that were hired in the opening of the school, I will not mention names. (you will hear about these very few amazing teachers). Most of them are moved around from class to class unhappy with the subject they are teaching, so they do not perform as well as they should be; especially in a magnet school. You will find the main thing that goes on in this school is, Cheating. Now, lets face it, cheating is a known issue all over the Miami dade public school system, but never will you see a teacher provoke a student to cheat on there studies more then this school. After asking many of the teachers in this school questions about a subject you would believe they know, or things related to the school in general, they would either not know the answer to, or just simply tell the students to look it up for themselves. The education given at this institution is dreadful, and does not even deserve to be represented on a website such as www.publicschoolreview.com. This is a school that is much more worried about the test scores, and where they stand on the chart of top 100 school in the district/florida then the overall quality of the education given to the students. Im sorry, but the everything in this school is faulty, and a mirage to persuade all of you wonderful parents to allow your wonderful kids into a facility that may sound great, but is truly a disgrace to education, and the public school system in general. The administration does not care about giving the parents, or students the proper high school experience they should be giving in a school that is noticed and talked about. This school does not develop anything related to the question. You would believe that a school that advertises a motto stating "Honor, respect, integrity" would incorporate some type of program, class, or moral to provide your children the proper examples they need to advance in todays society, especially while they are growing into young adults; but none of the above is offered in this facility. This institution provokes people to lie, cover up, and procrastinate everything that is thrown at them. You can believe that it is normal for your freshman, 15 year old child to not do there homework or have an F in one of there classes, but once you start noticing that teachers, 35+ are procrastinating there work, not giving there full potential into there teaching methods, bad mouthing students, teachers and administration in front of all there classes... something needs to be changed. Fairness, no such things exists in Law enforcement officers' memorial high school. Everything in the facility is favoritism, down to the administration itself. this school provokes its students to bad mouth, and create problems amongst each other. You would assume that a school that holds 350 kids and less, would have perfected how to deal with the little drama that happens in a high
