Coral Gables Senior High School Reviews

I'm very thankful for this school. People here love to complain about silly things (i.e. food mandated by the district, certain event prices, clubs, or whatever is hot that week) but let me tell you, this is absolutely one of the better schools in Miami. Having come from a really bad middle school, this highschool was like finding gold. The staff really cares and tries to support you, mostly all teachers are super passionate about what they do, there's so many clubs and things to get involved in! I'm so grateful for having the privilege of coming here! I love this school. The only complaint I have is that this school is not super strong in the Arts in comparison to many others, so if you're considering doing a form of art as a career, it may be better to go to another magnet specializing in that. However, this is an academic and sports school, so I can't really complain. Go Cavs!

Gables was a great experience from Freshmen to Senior year. I've met wonderful teachers and staff who were dedicated in their profession and have helped students in their own charismatic ways. The advisers and counselors are very informative and dedicate their time in the students' academic success and college readiness. I haven't had any major problems with my classmates since everyone was very nice and helpful to one another, especially when it comes to the IB program. The school also offers spirited events that you would look forward to, with senior year being the most special with Senior Picnic and Grad Bash! To summarize, the people and events are amazing.

The environment is somewhat of a downside. The campus has open areas of greenery to enjoy the outside. The inside of the school, however, is home to the occasional peeling paint off the walls. The bathrooms may be the only disgusting places on campus but are bearable with the regular cleaning they get.
There is always something to do at gables! If you get involved in school activities it will make your experience 10 times better. The staff/teachers are super helpful and they will make sure you are getting the best education possible. Before entering Gables I was scared of what I was going into, but thank you to the community built into the school I was able to find myself and game out as a TRUE cavalier!
