    "These reviews posted by disgruntled parents stating that the school is full of overachievers and there is no space for their child to grow, that is simply arrogant. There is a reason why your child is not getting into the most advanced classes, and that may as well be that your child is not as smart as you think he/she is. Just because your child does not perform as highly as other students, and therefore cannot get A's in the courses like you believe he/she deserves, does not mean that the school is doing something wrong. If the courses are too hard for your child, then please move them to another school that is less rigorous. There is a reason why half the kids in this school get accepted into ivies, and it's not because Ransom bribes the colleges or they inflate grades. Yes, the courses are challenging and students are competitive, but please do not accuse a school of being bad just because your child isn't the smartest in the class anymore like she/he was in elementary school."

    "I am currently a student at the ransom Everglades middle school and could not possibly love it more. It's academics very tough and require your full attention. It is not uncommon to have three hours of homework every night and six in the weekends. It is also very common to have multiple pop quizzes every day and occasionally two tests in one day. Most students in Ransom Everglades graduate high school into top 25 colleges and almost have of the students attend Ivy League universities. Achademics are also extremely tough due to the amount of competition between the students. Every single student in ransom is an overachiever and every single student is driven to be the best. Doing sports and attending this school may seem like and impossible task but it's really not. I train three hours a day for my sport and do all of my homework and still manage to get mostly A's and one or two B+'s. Sure you may be going to sleep relatively late but it teaches you that you have to put in work in life to achieve great results. If you are considering sending your child to Ransom Everglades do your child a favor and send him to Ransom because the experience will last him his entire life."

    "I'm a student at Ransom middle school, and I find myself enjoying the campus (it's setting is amazing, beautiful weather, I come from the northeast so hot, tropical weather is really nice for me) but the academics and social atmosphere are not enjoyable at all. In academics, you deal with a lot of toxic stress, and the teachers teach by memorization and grueling busy work rather than lessons that stick in your mind. I have straight A's despite this, but only because I go home and teach myself the material. The social life is even worse. Many girls my age are (excuse my language) sl*ts. They wear short dresses at every party, have no self respect, and yet still act like goody-two-shoes in front of their parents to get designer shoes. It sickens me how much of a "rich kids club" it is, and the 'popular' kids treat you like trash, as if you are beneath them. I have found a few good friends, but they were hard to find even though the class is 160 students! (In my eyes, another disadvantage for learning). Some teachers are supportive and love what they are doing, and other just hate their job and hate children. Not an enjoyable school, don't send your child for their sake. -student"

    "I have 2 teens in this school and think that there is no finer school on the planet. The academic curriculum is rigorous and the administration is responsive and helpful. The teachers are excellent and approachable. The campuses are awesome. The students are thoughtful and courteous. I drop my teens off without a care or worry. Worth its weight in gold!"

    "I am a recent graduate who adored Ransom. It is not a school for everyone, and there are some teachers who aren't up to the 28k/year standard, but in general my experience was great. The vast majority of the teachers are excellent, and they are by far the best part of the school. The college counseling department is also phenomenal. I've found that most people who are dissatisfied with their experiences or college placement wanted to get away with doing no work and still being rewarded; that won't happen, but Ransom provides the resources and support system for just about any student to succeed."
