    "My son had been bullied all of last year and the beginning of this year and nobody did anything about it! He got to the point where he was not eating. To make matters worse the counselor ridiculed him in front of the bully. The principle runs the school like a dictatorship. She is rude to everyone including the parents. This principle is where she is because her husband is a lobbyist for the school board. I thank GD everyday that my son and daughter were excepted into SOMI Academy! YES, I pulled them out as fast as possible and now they are thriving and HAPPY!!! the principle's last words to me me were "I just have to let you know that once you children leave, it is very hard to come back." I'll never forget those evil words. Yes, They make sure they get the "scores" they need but nobody is truly happy. I want my kids to be HAPPY no matter what. They are now!"

    "This school provides an outstanding educational experience for our students. We have an accelerated academic program that is unmatched in the district with a higher percentage of our 7th graders taking the Algebra I high school course and of our 8th graders taking the high school Geometry course than any other school in the area. Only our regular program students take the FCAT for math; 48% of our 7th graders took the Algebra I EOC exam instead. The small school size insures that no student is left out or left behind, and we have very few discipline issues. My colleagues are topnotch--many were school and curriculum leaders before coming to CGPA and have been recognized by the district and state for superior curriculum development, delivery, and assessment. Overall, we provide a unique and high-quality preparatory experience for our middle school students as our numerous former students who are now enrolled in some of the top magnet high school programs in the district will attest."

    "I have been in this school for 6 years (my oldest just completed 7th grade). I have to say that each year has been better than the previous one. The level of education here is incredible. This is clearly demonstrated by the tests/FCATs/competitions that the school participates in each year. There is a reason that this school is ranked so high. Apart from exceptional FCAT scores due to the exceptional and caring teachers, they are the reigning Geography Bee champions, several students were recognized for SAT performances in math and reading via the Duke TIP program, the PE coach won a national award, I could go on and on - but above all the young gentlemen and ladies feel safe, happy and confident - the proof is in the pudding. Seeing these children become young teens teeming with confidence, class and perfect manners both in and out of school while excelling in academics as well as extracurricular activities is all that counts and this school helps them do just that. As a parent that is all I ask for and expect."
