    "My child has gone to RBMA for 4 years and is a graduating senior this year.The staff at RBMA are very caring and giving of their time and devotion both to the school and the students. There are many opportunities to learn new things , earn certificstions all the while enjoying your time at RBMA and being recognized for your accomplishments. This school has plans to continue growing yet never loses site of the students needs and goals. This school stays on top of things with constant communication reminding students what is required and what needs to be completed. I am glad my son chose this school for his high school education i will miss them for a few years till my next child enters but would like to say i couldn't be more proud of my son who is now a young man, RBMA and the education and opportunities they provide, The caring teachers and staff that help meet the students needs on a daily basis and to all the businesses that work along with RBMA.

    "This school is one of the best kept secret in Palm Beach County. As a business owner and parent I can see the passion the staff has for teaching the students that attend. Over the years I have followed and watched this school take what little they have and give back to the students and the surrounding community 210%+. The teachers and staff members really care and want these students t to be successful in years to come and that is evident through their interaction with the students and the individual time they take out of their day to make sure that happens. The children that attend this school are not a number, not just another student, they are recognized as individuals with goals and personality that make that student who they are. The staff at RBMA strives every day to do the best they can to educate and guide these students in direction to make those goals and dreams a reality for the students. There is a saying "You can not judge a book by it cover", I encourage any one who has a child that will be attending 9th grade in the upcoming years to not just look on line at this school, but go there. Talk to the staff, meet the students you will not be disappointed.."

    "As a parent I can say that this school has NOT helped my child be college ready. As I was inquiring at another school, when I mentioned what school my child attended, the school official laughed and stated they have heard all of the horror stories of this school. They also warned me that students transferring from RBMA most likely will have a hard time "catching up". It is true that your child's progress is based on $ you donate. The most telling sign about this school was the open house we attended before the school year began. Two-thirds of the faculty was dressed as if they lived on the streets. What a horrible representation to our children. How do you expect a child to respect you when you dress like trash! This school is a joke. AP classes are a joke. Discipline is a joke! Don't call and talk to the principal, you won't get a word in edgewise. Your opinion does not count here."

    "This is an awesome school. Two of my four kids attend, and the other two will be starting there next year. The teachers really care about the students and their learning. This is one of a handful of "A" rated high schools in Palm Beach County (which was acheived during a four day school week)! With their small student body (150 students), the teachers have smaller classroom sizes & go ABOVE & BEYOND to assist struggling students. Their PTO is active and hosts quite a few events thoughout the year (Spaghetti Dinner, Super Bowl Tailgate Party etc.) My son is in the SCUBA club, but they also have the ROV (underwater robotics) club, Fishing club, Garden Club, Computer club & the National Technical Honor Society (which my daughter is a member of). They also have a floating classroom (large boat which they take out often) & many trips they take to Peace River, Venice Beach, Sea World and even the Florida Keys! They have a bus schedule, that is strategically placed around the county to get our children to and from school safely. I am confident that my kids are learning what is necessary for them to attend a good university!"
