    "The "Cheating Academy" is definitely an academy of excellence. Every day, after school, once I bring my child home, I always see her studying for work. My daughter is in the Scholars Academy and takes multiple AP classes, and studies so hard she barely has time for her sports and hobbies anymore. I highly disagree to the name "Cheaters Academy," because she doesn't deserve a name like that when she does the best she can to achieve better grades and make it into college. If the Scholars Academy cheats, then how do you expect other kids to do any better?"

    "For a school that claims excellence and claims it is one of the best is far from the truth. This school is honestly putting up a false facade of itself claiming that it can get your kids into the top schools cause of its IB program and its Scholars Program but in reality the kids get in cause of their expertise in cheating! Cheating has become a hobby for many kids and thats no surprise considering everyone has an ego in Scholars that is larger than life. This school does nothing about the problem and does not discipline kids cause they're in "Scholars", seriously, they should have stuck with the name "Cheaters Academy" because that is what it has become. The school does get kids into Ivy Leagues but with nothing more than the help of their dear parents and changing all their ethnicities to Hispanic for those pity scholarships and higher chances of getting into top notch schools. Do not allow yourself to be put under this schools spell, it has nothing to show for and the administration has nothing to boast, its not like they do anything anyway."

    "Miami Beach Senior High School is an excellent High School. Dr. Sidener, A.P. Mr. Flores, A.P. Mr. Patrice, Counselors, Teachers, Coaches and the entire staff know what they are doing and they all take pride in guiding each student to their dreams and goals. The school is very safe. If you want to volunteer, contact the PTSA. Please visit the school site at: for more information, or visit the school in person. My son has been attending Beach High for three years and my daughter is a Freshman this year. They are safe, learning and happy to attend Beach High! I just want to take a moment to thank the entire Beach High Family."

    "MBSH is an awesome school. My oldest daughter received many scholarships to college thanks in large part to her teachers who can teach! Clearly she was ready for college! My youngest child struggles with a learning disability and she too has teachers who can teach and I feel confident she will be ready for college also. There are so many opportunities available to the students and an incredible diversity of people from all parts of the world--all very accepting of each other. As I've always said, you get out of it what you put in to it so, participate in your child's education and your child will succeed and you will be a proud parent!"

    "Gang problems and principal and teachers have a lack of professionalism."
