    "Its an okay school... great principal!! security is a major issue as parents are allowed to wonder around hallways- you don't know who is a parent and who is not. If you plan to have your kids attend this school look out for the helicopter parents. They are constantly trying to test their kids into the gifted programs even though their child is not gifted. Drop off/ pick-up is a nightmare at this school. The cross walk staff is horrible- constantly blocking intersections when light is on green and making traffic worst than it already is. Teachers are average."

    "I have three children attending Coral Reef and I cannot say much because they have not attended any other school but there is not extra help for children not doing good. Parents will have to pay private tutors. There is a " tutoring program" but is just the kids doing success maker on the computer. Very disappointed but I have heard others are way wosrst. Unfuryunately, there are not many choices out there and the school district just care about FCATS and sadly our children are not learning, they are just being trained to pass a test. The only positive thing is the area. That's all."

    "I had 2 students go through school for K- 5th grade. For MIami, its an ok school but over the years I have seen the quality of education there slip. The school has a disproportionately large # of students in the gifted program. The classes that are left are filled with problem students that are bussed in from other feeder patterns. The new principal seems more concerned with making the school look "pretty" than the quality of education. The parents are very involved, TOO INVOLVED. Any time of day, parents can be seen walking around the campus which is both a security issue and disruptive for the classes. Also the school abutts a park with only a 4 foot fence separating it. Any vagrant could have access to the open-style campus. Unsafe!"

    "My child is in their third year, gifted program at CRE. My child has been very fortunate because every teacher has been top notch and extremely passionate about their craft. The staff and community of parents are outstanding and never cease to amaze me with their dedication to the children."

    "Please don't berate this school if this is your first experience in Miami- Dade County Public Schools, because many of your issues would be caused by lack of funding. Your gripe: They don't have after school programs?! Um, no, they don't. There is no money in Miami-Dade schools. I think they're doing a good job considering the resources they're given. They need more staff to get the things done that parents are expecting (and should be). However, there is no money for new hires. Change needs to be made through politics. These schools need to be better funded. Period. I've been to CRE & seen no toilet paper, paper towels or soap in the bathrooms. I've seen office staff pushing a mop around the cafeteria. They're trying. Please do not blame them, blame our government. As far as students being bused in, they are. However, if you're worried about behavior problems because of it-don't. Overall, Coral Reef is one of the best public schools in Miami-Dade. Compaprable schools are in high income neighborhoods with parents donating generously both their time & money to make up for what poor government funding is causing."
