    Truly one of America’s greatest schools. This special community molds lives of meaning. We actually relocated *BACK* to Miami, and re-worked our careers, when our oldest child was accepted for admission so she could attend Ransom Everglades. It's reputation for rigorous and demanding academics is very justified, but the caliber of teaching and the quality of support resources are limitless, and most students -- who themselves are self-selecting; they apply after preparing and taking the SSAT, they've had exemplary grades in prior schools, they interview as part of the admissions process, and they know beforehand what they are getting themselves into -- well, its not overstating it to say that students thrive here. For decades, graduates have become prepared to achieve not only at the great universities of the world, but also throughout their lives.

    One of the finest schools in the nation and the world...a bastion of the highest quality education, top level sports, and a veritable network of friendships and relationships, which have endured a lifetime. Educated at some of the most prominent schools in various countires on various continents, my experience at Ransom was unrivaled and remains the primary influence of true relevance and pronounced significance in my lifetime.

    The successes in my general and specific, social and professional life, have been undeniably shaped and most deeply influenced by the commitment to excellence afforded by this unique learning institution through its extraordinary faculty and staff...a clear demonstration of unparalleled leadership and incomparable vision. Simply stated...learning processes held to the highest standards of the education spectrum.
    Ransom Everglades School is a prestigious school, well-known throughout Miami. I am very grateful for the education I have received here and that is why I have chosen to give an overall 5-star rating. I would like to say, however, that I'm not sure whether Ransom Everglades School will continue to improve will all the change the school is experiencing now under the new administration.
