Cocoa Beach Junior/Senior High School Reviews

202 reviews

Cocoa Beach has a lively and unique student body. Never have I seen a more obnoxious and disrespectful group of teenagers in my life, than Cocoa Beach's student section at the football games, but never have I met such inquisitive, proactive learners. Sure there are cliques and jerks and a surplus of vaping addicts, but the school also has kind and interesting, multi-faceted students. The teachers for IB classes are phenomenal, however the administration lacks professionalism and determination. One can spend weeks trying to arrange a meeting with Guidance, only to be told in that meeting to "come back another time." Administration frequently goes too far when dealing with minor disciplinary issues, but fails to deal with major problems.

I love the teachers and faculty at Cocoa Beach High School. They really improved my high school experience and made coming to school every day a little bit more fun. It is easy to see the teachers who truly care about their students and want to make a difference on campus and in the students' lives. If there was anything I could change about my high school, it would be the campus culture. While we are a very laid-back, relaxed beach town, I wish our school focused more on education and academics. Cocoa Beach High School's faculty is very supportive of athletes but rarely do we see that same kind of supportive attitude toward our academic scholars. Regardless, I truly appreciate everything I have learned in my six years attending Cocoa Beach High. I will never forget all the memories I have made and all the wonderful relationships I have built with the students, teachers, and faculty. I am proud to be in the Cocoa Beach Junior/Senior High School Class of 2017!
The school has a lot of spirit, great classes, wonderful teachers, and very good education system. I admit there are some faults in the school, that could be changed, but nothing is perfect. The school's lunch is some issue, as a majority of the time, the food is poorly prepared or not fully cooked. There are some staff members who don't always have the best attitudes, but for the most part, the staff is wonderful and people in this school are very friendly. I definitely give this school are high ranking, because it is amazing.
