i am a student here at coral glades and i have loved it. there are not a lot of fights unlike taravella. One of my friends goes to taravella and wishes she could one here. all the teachers and staff care about the students. The security guards are really nice and keep our school in check when needed. I'm am so glad i moved into coral glades district because before i was in taravella district and i didn't want to go there. Overall this is a great school and i recommend it for any high schooler out there looking for a good high school.

The school is overall not good. Besides a few teachers, the teachers do not seem to care about seeing their students do well. The sports teams are very bad and are very power oriented. The cheerleading coaches are terrible and mean, the guidance counselors are for the most part and useless and lazy, and the students are not taking it seriously because the teachers are not.

My school is a great school from the fantastic security team to the entertaining on school and off school activities before, during, and or after school. Also there are many fun and informative clubs as well from UNC (Ultimate Nerd Collation) to SLA (Student Law Association). There are little to never any fights at Glades and even when there are they never have a weapon and the fights are usually broken up within 5 seconds of it starting because security is always walking or riding their golf carts around and there is always someone in the security office watching the camera screens. There are a little over 300 amazing teachers and staff that work extremely hard to help your students graduate and be safe while at school. We have wonderful Art, Music, Drama, JROTC, Culinary, and Engineering elective programs for your students to enjoy all four years of their horrible or memorable high school experience.

My daughter just started her junior year and first year in Coral Glades High School. So far I am very pleased with her drastic improvement. I am happy with their JROTC program. Mr. Danny Trito is excellent in addressing students' concerns.

Why are the FCAT scores so low? The scores are important. When my older son went here the scores were decent and now I'm afraid to send my other 2 boys to this school. I'm praying that I am able to send my other sons to Coral Springs Charter school but it boils down to being lucky enough to win the school lottery. It''s really sad.

I am a freshman and so far I am quite satisfied with the school despite several complaints. I have all honors except geometry and strangly enough this regular class is the most difficult.This school doesn't seem to care about anyting other than their overachievers. So what if these kids aren't the brightest, the only reason they flunk the class is because they think they are before they even try and the teachers don't help by conditioning their minds that it is 'really hard'. So if your not in 'average' classes this is an ideal school for you. I really like the method that the majority of the teachers use. They actually teach us, with 'lectures' and then quiz us. As long as you pay attention and study, straight A's should be no problem. As the year progresses it shall be interesting to see how this review will change. Overall, its pleasent.

I'm a freshman and already I cant stand the school. The teachers only focus on the work ethic and not the well being of their students. The principal only worries and the 'looks' of being a good school but not actually 'being' one. Lunch detentions and internal suspension are practically an obsession among faculty because they arent quite sure what else to punish the kids with. Im hopefully leaving the school after this summer and will never recommend it to anyone..

The four years the school has been open has been absolutely unsatisfactory for me and my 12th grade child. The principal is not up to par and the teachers do not know what they are doing. The work my student brings home is ridiculous and insufficient to her future studies. In the end, I am very disappointed.

I feel this Principal is more concerned with the 'appearance' of doing a good job instead of actually 'doing' a good job for the students. I see the mode of operation to be the shotgun effect, throw enough stuff out there and maybe some of it will stick to the students. Some programs are very supported and others that would benefit lower achieving students trying to find a career path are left to fend for themselves. Maybe that's the trend in Coral Springs schools - teach to the advance students that can make you look good - remember, it is all about 'appearance'.

After having three gifted children go through this and other schools, I have been very disappointed. Without painting the brush to broadly, too many of my childrens teachers are substandard. These are honors courses that are taught content to too far from the subject or insufficiently to allow but only one or two students in the classes to pass the AP credit exams. I also emailed the principal of this high School on an issue of questionable language used by teachers in the classroom asking what the language policy was. While my email was not abaisive, I received no reply. A second email met with the same result. While I am sure that some of these issues span the greater public school system, I remained disenchanted with the school.
