This is one of the worst schools I have ever encountered. Rare are the teachers that care for the development of the young person. There are a few great teachers here, but not the majority. The parents are like a crazy club that wants to recreate their own high school. The PTA collects money relentlessly for their own social events, and very little goes into the education. The kids are mean to each other, unless their parents are wealthy. You need to invest in the top designers for your kids' wardrobe, and they are proud of this fact. The level of drama amongst the student body and the parents is unbelievable. The front office staff often do not know what is going on, and are rude to parents and students alike. We survived, but it was a nightmare.

This is the absolute WORST SCHOOL IN THE WORLD. the administraters don't care and they barely help your child prepare for college. The teachers are rude and the campus is filthy. Don't even get me started about the women at the suite a help desk.... By far the most vile disgusting women I have ever come to contact with. I DO NOT recommend this bratty school.

I graduated in 1987 from this school and they were opened just two years. I see now they are more competitive than they were back then. While this school was more simple than the school I came from in New York where we took the Regents examination, I had a great experience there in my junior and senior years. I remember the graphic arts course fondly with the big giant printer and the huge developing room for 35 millimeter film. I know technology has advanced and they got rid of that stuff, but that is stuff you take with you outside and transfer it to new technology which I have. The school spirit back then was great with the pep rallies during the day as we cheered for the Sharks to win. Most of all, the kids I met there were very cool back then. Since everyone was new, no one dared to make fun of each other. A lot of us got along. If anyone is reading this from the school that attends, let new kids into your circle. It's hard enough being the new kid as it is and you probably knew your friends your entire life since you lived in Florida that long.

My son transferred from Boca High, which is also a good school. He has had a good year so far. If you are lucky enough to get Jill Rockwell as a Guidance Counselor, your child is in good hands.

This is a great school. Most teachers are excellent and care about their students. They all offer to help before or after class and during lunch. You can even email them anytime with a question. The PTSA and the school websites have all the answers a new student might have. As for the nasty creatures they could crawl into your house and this will not make it a horrible house. Most students are nice some are mean. SORRY MATE our school IS NOT HORRIBLE.

This is a horrible school. Most of the teachers and staff do not care about anyone and they're pretty unhelpful. The students here are horrible. The don't care about others and don't like to welcome new students into their "cliques." So, if you are considering moving here, I reccomened that you don't, you will regret it. Not to mention the gross campus and the nasty creatures like rats and cockroaches.

We can't be happier that our kids attend such an excellent school where they can be challenged in a real competitive environment. The Biotech Academy along with the Science and math departments are sure to prep our kids to take on any discipline anywhere they choose. Excellent caring teachers Dybas,Tuffo,Leeds,Lori Eaton ...to name a few.

Spanish River is a well rounded school from the teachers and Administration to the parent volunteers...this is the place to be. They look at the whole student and make sure that each student has what is needed to succeed both in and out of the classroom.

Having a great experience at this school! One child in 11th grade and one in 9th... they are both receiving a fantastic education and i know they are getting the best at Spanish River. Academics come first, the school is competive in the futures market, there is fantastic parent/student involvement with many great programs offered, and for the most part students seem happy to be there! :)

This is probably the most honest and straightforward review of the school that is unbiased. If you are the parent of a child that you would consider average, or demanding extra attention, this is probably not the school for you The school has amazing teachers but they are mostly in the AP and honors level classes so any regular student is not going to experience them. They have amazing teachers in that area and we boast the best AP exam scores in the area beating all the specialized schools with IB and magnet programs. On other notes our school spirit from what I have observed is lacking. Students are very involved in leadership and such but it is for academic advancement more than for spirit. The school is very very competitive in nature and any bright kid here can easily be ranked in the hundreds. Intelligence here is remarkable and the school always has students in the best Ivy league schools. On another note athletics are good except for football which is almost like a joke to watch now (almost all games from the schools entire existence has ended with scores such as 0-57). The guidance department is great the PTSA is amazing clubs are great and sanitation not so much.

I just watched the video of this schools administrators throwing out BradLee Dean from a scheduled speaking engagement. The statement that no one has first amendment rights in a public school is ludicris! These are supposedly educated people that are lying to our children, and not teaching them about our country. I'll bet none of the teachers know what our constitution says about the right to assemble and the right of religious freedom. None of them have been taught american history or civics. This is an example of a poorly ran school with poor education standards.

February 14, 2013


Yesterday, February 13, 2013 the principal without cause or reason removed from the premises nationally known Christian speaker/musician Bradlee Dean after his having been invited by the student group, The American Club. This is in direct violation of the Policy and Procedures of the district and of the student's civil rights to operate their club on school property. Why would an educated, professional behave in such an irrational manner? Why would he violate his oath of office to uphold and protect the Constitution?; and by that oath he should honor our students Constitutional rights of assembly and of religious freedom. Instead he violated them. Does this make him non-professional? Has he violated the DOE's regulation of Professional Conduct? This would not be the leadership that I would want our future citizens to emulate. He owes everyone an apology for his bad behavior.
