Ransom Everglades School Reviews
This school has so many wonderful attributes. We are so grateful that we have been able to send three of our children there so far, and our fourth is an applicant for the coming year.
First and foremost, it has a culture of caring. Students and parents are informed that the school seeks to graduate students who are "in the world not so much for what they can get out of it as for what they can put into it."
The faculty is brilliant and dedicated. My children have learned as much from their teachers outside of the classroom as they have inside the classroom. Teachers are all very approachable and have extensive office hours, and they have a genuine interest in their students. The social sciences are taught using the Harnkess method, which employs a circular seating layout so no child sits in the proverbial back of the room, and everyone -- including the teacher -- has an equal voice in the lively class discussions.
My oldest child is now in college, and says that Ransom Everglades provided excellent college preparation.
The campus is also beautiful, and the facilities are top-notch. There is a new aquatic center that was completed in 2012; the football field is located right on the bay and is equipped with lights for night games; the performing arts center has a professional-grade stage; the marina has sailboats and catamarans that students use in P.E.
As you can probably tell, I think Ransom Everglades is an excellent school.
It is not only one of the best schools in the state of florida but it also teaches students necessary life skills they will use for the rest of their lives
