    The Cushman School Reviews

    We had always heard wonderful things about Cushman, but had not considered it because of the distance to our home. When the high school was opened in 2017, our home situation changed and Cushman became an option. How I regret, not coming here sooner! This has been an such an incredible experience. The academics are extremely challenging. The teachers are superb and the faculty feels like an extension of our family. We only have one more year left in high school, and I can truly say, I will miss Cushman dearly!

    My experience at The Cushman High School was amazing. I transferred to Cushman as a junior and I wish I would’ve done it sooner. The students, staff, faculty, and teachers are exceptional. Cushman is like having a second family. I was accepted into all of my top choices (Babson College, University of Miami Honors Program, Bentley University, George Washington University, American University, Northeastern University & the list goes on). This was all thanks to Cushman - their academics, their opportunities such as internships, their philosophy and their environment. At Cushman you have to be prepared to step out of your comfort zone as you’re introduced to a world of public speaking and community service. I highly recommend The Cushman High School for any student who wants to present a well-rounded package for their college application. I wouldn’t change a single thing about my experience in this school.
    Best school in South Florida. On top of first rate academics, character development, respect, manners and responsibility are equally as important and taught. Recommend without any hesitation!
