    When someone affiliated with the school tells you it's not a school for everyone, they really mean that. There are very few POC students, but it's been improving slowly in the last few years. Academics are rigorous, and students are known to be competitive. The campus is beautiful, and the pool is incredibly impressive. The administration needs to improve how they handle students' mental health. There was one incident where a student went to the school's guidance counseling to discuss stress and poor mental health. The counselor ended up telling them "maybe this isn't the school for you" rather than helping them or guiding them.

    Ransom Everglades is a great school and an over all great community. The school’s handling of the COVID pandemic was superb and our learning experience was only slightly altered by the virus. I love my classes at ransom, especially since the school allows you to take classes you’re truly interested in. What really makes or breaks your experience at ransom, though, is how you take advantage of the sports, clubs, and resources available to you. I can confidently say that my involvement in dance team and speech and debate have shaped my love for the school.
    I am a new parent this year and we are loving the experience. The teachers are all working so hard to ensure that our students have a first-rate education, whether remote or in person, and the school has handled the safety and wellness of the community so well. I could not be more comfortable sending my child to in person school than at RE, and know that he will benefit from it - from the classroom to the lab to the football field. I would encourage anyone considering RE to apply - it's a wonderful place, caring place located on two gorgeous campuses in Coconut Grove.
