    "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!"

    "I would not send your child to this school!We made this terrible mistake and I would hate for other caring parents to do the same...Let's start with the Principal, Mrs. Hicks.My experience dealing with her was shocking to say the least.She speaks to you as if you are having a conversation on the "streets".She is not professional or consistant at all.She makes all the decisions regarding the student body.She makes choices based upon parents who give $ to the school.The teachers and very limited staff do not make any decisions pertaining the students. The students wear their pants hanging off their bottoms.The students are rough and the environment of the school is poor.The children eat lunch outside in the heat...This is not a good school, please do a surprise walk of the school during operating hours and you can make an informed decision yourself.I rate this school one star for a couple of good teachers.Also you will see random students hanging around the school while class is in session.They do not have any consistency with rules for the students."

    "Unfortunately my family and I have had to move around a lot these past few years. RBMA is the first school my son has really felt comfortable at. He has made friends easily and has been excelling in academics. I highly recommend the school to anyone who does not want their child to just be another number out of the 1000s in the schools."

    "I am a parent of a student at RBMA. He has only been there for this year and has adjusted well. He seems to like his teachers and they seem to like him. He feels that his science classes are chalenging and likes his boat and yacht classes (he built a boat today and says it is quite the experience). If you are interested in marine related fields, this is the place for you."
