The are some good teachers but way too many students. There are lots of resources for the IB program but the rest of the students, especially the non achievers are neglected. Even if it is a magnet IB school, all students need to be challenged. Another regular non charter high school needs to open in the area so there will be less students at CGHS. Also, stressing good English grammar will help the students later on in college, more than speaking Spanish. One teacher even teaches part of the class in Spanish. even though it is not a bilingual class.

Horrible across the board-/ AVOID! Look at FCAT scores with an average of 50% operating below grade level standards-- that speaks for itself.

In response to the parent that posted a comment on Aug 12th about Gables not being "Great" anymore. Well, it seems to me that perhaps you should find a new school for your child. I'm a proud parent of two Gables graduates. My daughter graduated Class of 2009 and my son just graduated May 2014. This is still a great Public School, yes it's not perfect but it offers great learning and athletic experiences for those who want to take the challenges. I hope you, as a parent are involved with the schools PTSA that has a great group of parents that work really work hard to provide much needed funds. If you're not involved, i suggest you do, it's a great way to find out what's going on with the school and have you voice heard. As for the kids in the attendance office, that's is part of the school's program to introduce students to office work, those students are "Office Aids". Gables is still a GREAT School and, in my opinion, the school doesn't make the students, the students make the school. GO CAVS.

This is my childs first year at Gables and so far we are very happy with the school. I found it to be one of the few High Schools where an adult actually answers the phone. The staff is very attentive and speaks to the kids. My daughter is enjoying the school and clubs. They have all types of programs and activities for the kids. They don't only concentrate on their magnet IB but they also pay attention to the rest of the students. All students have an opportunity at the school. This is what High School is all about. Also the academics is top notch. They have honors, gifted-honors, IP, AP, dual enrollment, etc. When I went to open house, I saw the principal and vice-principal interacting with parents and teachers. The are very proud of their school. She is really enjoying the school. I hope this remains like this for the rest of high school. Also, before school started and I did not know anyone, I emailed a PTA member out of the website, she was great, answered my questions and helped me out. The PTA is great!!!

Good teachers always bring forth good professionals, I graduated in 1987 and what I learned during those 3 years has been a great base for my professional life.

As a Coral Gables High Alumni I can say that this is an amazing school! Excellent AP/IB/Honors Program. The teachers are great. However, there are some teachers that shouldn't be teaching... they have great programs such as the Gablettes and Cheerleaders. Only downfall is how personal the teachers can get with their students... like, no- its not cool for you too be involved in high school gossip...

A great all around school. It is one of the mid-sized ones in Miami and the school is run well. There are some great teachers at Gables (not all are, but there will be bad teachers at every singe school). Most of the teachers are caring and knowledgable and wonderful to work with. The new administration does a great job of running the school. Teachers have academic freedom and there is not the over-focusing on testing that you find at some schools. The students are generally well behaved and follow the rules. IB/AP/Honors program is awesome! I love working here and have happily done so for 5 wonderful years.

2 stars - Recently my son had his cell phone stolen. The administration behaved quite apathetic about the whole incident and almost seemed to not want to do anything about it. I e-mailed the principal who never responded. My son's father got a response after a pressing e-mail, however again, the principal never followed through. This is simply unacceptable.

Coral Gables is still the best school in Miami ! And with a Primo IB Program, and the best Advanced Placement program in Miami as well. The teachers are very involved and committed. Excellent Security as well. I only wish they offered more computer courses--but they only have One computer teacher.

Both of my daughters attended the IB program at Coral Gables Senior High. They received an outstanding education that has made it possible for them to be accepted at universities throughout the United States, including Ivy League schools. The faculty was always available and very dedicated to my daughters' education. I am extremely satisfied with Coral Gables Senior High.

My daughter graduated from Coral Gables Senior and i truly believe it to be a great school. It has its negatives but above all it is mostly good; staff and students get along well for the most part and it is a safe place to be.

Excellent school with excellent magnet programs for advance/honor students. Excellent teachers. Do not go by the test scores, this is a 3, 500 students school. Such a big school and so many students it is hard to compete with the smaller nearby high schools. But, their program would definately prepare your child for the most challenging/competitive and pretigious universities.

The school lacks any administrative control of the curriculum. Each teacher teaches what he or she wants totally disregarding what they the assigned curriculum is. Some teachers are good other aren't. No administrator checks on them. All the administration seems to focus on is that the classes are under control by the teachers and the FCAT
