Ben Gamla Charter School - South Broward Reviews
Rating 4.3 out of 5 10 reviews
Each classroom has a smart board and a computer for each teacher to use. As well as Ipads for the students to find their textbooks, or use the internet as a resource in the classroom.
The teachers are always on the top of their game in the school. Being that the school is small, there is always time for the teacher to sit with each individual student and help take care of what they are missing or need help with.
There are a variety of classes that students can take. If the school does not have one to offer, the administration will help and try to find the online version of that class for the student to take and enjoy.
The food is always kosher in the school and there are always opportunities for kids with special dietary needs to get what they can.
The security is very strong at the school. There are multiple sign-in sheets for parents, students and guests. There are a plethora of cameras and locks throughout the entire school and the security is very strong.
Since the school is relatively small, the social scene at the school is pretty good. Most of the clicks overlap a lot and almost everyone knows each other and are acquaintances. The diversity is pretty good as well, a majority of the school is Jewish; however, there is a big African-American and Latino population as well.
There are a variety of school-wide policies that affect the students and parents. Some of these include, the uniform policy (having to where school approved uniforms everyday) and the volunteer policy for parents (the parents have to do a minimum of 30 hours (or donate 300 dollars) for the school.
We are a small school and don't have as many facilities or equipment as other schools do; however, from what we do have is enough to make the kids happy and do almost any sport.
The opportunities to stand out above your peers.
