    "Dito! Major nepotism in the school. was convinced and impressed the day I attended orientation. However, when school started, all my expectations and content with the school were erased. I agree with a previous comment that your child will be pulled from class and given indoor suspension without notifying the parent. I left several messages and emails to both the teacher and the principal, which were not answered. I plan to make an appointment with the school board to show that this is NOT proper behavior for any school's staff. I had to force my way to see the principal by going to the office and telling the receptionist that I was not leaving until I saw her. This is more of a boarding school where they treat your children as if they were criminals and liars. I agree with a strict curriculum and punishment but this goes too far. This is my child's first year at AMC. My child has excelled throughout previous years and received high scores on his FCATs, however, he is failing this year. I agree with another review, my child has also developed depression and emotional problems attending this school. This is NOT a happy place."

    "The high test scores this school brags about are everything that a parent would hope for but it IS NOT what it seems. Tutoring as they call it on Saturdays is mandatory.. Equivalent to a Kaplan course for the FCAT, the children put in an extra 50-60 hours toward preparation for the test? If it's so academically rigorous, why can't they score accordingly like the rest of the county? The children are threatened with 10 detentions for each Saturday missed. That's missed lunches by the way. Upon withdrawing my child, I was told by teachers & other staff to please let the board of education know; to do something!!! They said they see perfectly good children come out of the elementary and once they hit middle it's all downhill because of the principal's methods. With a charter school, you have no recourse with the county should a situation arise. We switched to a full-gifted program that is equivalently challenging and my child is so much happier. Don't make the mistake of thinking that the low rating reviews are exaggerated; for your child's sake and yours."

    "No, This school it's not for everybody!! It is a very demanding school, not only for the kids but also for the parents! That's why my kids go to Archimedean because I want the best for them and with all the pros and cons this school is doing a great job. The principal is very strict but that's how you have to be when you are dealing with rising teenagers. Saturday school is not mandatory but if you want to be the best you have to work hard! and that's what they teach the kids..."

    "My daughter is in her first year at Archimedean Middle Conservatory. We are amazed at the kindness of students and staff (even though the teachers can be strict at times). We love the way that they teach at the school, although it may seem quite overwhelming. Yes, they are told to attend Saturday tutoring every week in the months before the exams, but only certain days are mandatory. The school also asks the students to attend Wednesday tutoring and stay an extra hour in the afternoons. Again, not all days are mandatory. The consequence for not attending the mandatory sessions is a detention during lunchtime but students are NOT deprived of their lunches. All the school is trying to do is confirm the success in your child's future. It is true that it is not for everyone, but anyone can succeed anywhere if they have the drive to."

    "(continued #2) I'm a student in....... In Archimedean Middle Conservatory they teach you greek, which helps us exercise how to learn a language, greek math, which helps us learn where some math came from, and philosophy (ethics), where students learn to do the right thing. In Archimedean we exercise our brains and actually work unlike other schools. If you want to be in a school to succeed I highly recommend Archimedean Middle Conservatory. Another thing parents/students might complain about is that the principle is to strict and I can agree on this but no school works with non strict principals or teachers. My principal, Mrs. Moysidis works very hard to help us succeed in life and if there is any problem or conflict in our school even if there it's something little like losing a watch she solves it in one second as some people may call her she is like the agent of our school. This school is the best school in the world. If there is any complaint of people's children not doing good in this school it's not because of the lack of good teachers,principal,and staff it's because they lack effort or don't study enough. This is the best school you can ever find in the universe!!!!!!"
