The Miami School System

The Miami-Dade County Public School District is home to more than 400 academic institutions serving nearly 400,000 students. Of these, nearly 40 are public high schools and 120 more are magnet schools that require an application process. The area has the largest minority public school system in the nation and is one of the only public school districts in the country to offer bilingual education in French, German, Haitian Creole, Mandarin Chinese, and Spanish. The city is also home to Design and Architecture High School, one of the country’s best magnet schools. The large student population and rigorous competition for admittance into the highly regarded charter schools in the area can be intimidating for students.

One of the ways to help students who are struggling with a subject, preparing for a standardized exam, or seeking a higher level of mastery in a particular area is to have them work with a private tutor. Professional Miami tutors can work with students from pre-K to university level courses to help them improve their skills. A personal tutor can also help with exam preparation for tests such as the SAT, ACT, FSA, or ISEE. Take a look at how some of the biggest schools in Miami stack up against state assessment averages:

Miami Test Scores

The FSA, or Florida Standards Assessments exams are given to students in the state beginning in the third grade. They are a tool to help educators measure a student’s academic gains and progress over the course of their academic career. Subjects covered include English Language Arts, Mathematics, End of Course exams in Algebra 1 and Geometry, and Science in grades five and eight.

These tests can be especially stressful for third and tenth grade students. Third grade students must receive a passing score to be promoted to the fourth grade. In order to graduate from high school, Florida students must pass a final FSA exam. The exam is first given in the tenth grade in order to give students additional time to earn a passing grade if they fail the exam the first time. If a student is unable to pass the FSA, there may be a complicated path to graduation by earning minimum scores on the ACT or SAT. Regardless, a passing FSA score is optimal.

An experienced Miami tutor can work with your child to master the subject areas covered by the state examination. This can include specific subject area instruction, but it may also include test taking strategies or general reading comprehension skills, which can help improve the student’s confidence and academic ability and help alleviate testing anxiety. While not strictly an academic indicator, confidence in one’s ability and a method for mitigating stress can help improve test scores.

Students of all ages need to be focused on course grades and exam scores, as the competition to get into the best schools begins long before high school. Once students enter high school, they need to be consistently looking forward to their college careers. Curious about which Miami high schools are at the top of the list? We’ve put together an informative table for your consideration:

Many students who only have access to educators in a high student-teacher ratio setting find the individualized attention provided by working with a personal tutor invaluable.

Finished the section on mathematics achievement. The student was having problems with a lot of the abstract and complex concepts. We started with an introduction to quantitative comparisons, which we will continue next time.

Spent most of the time reviewing linear equations and then moved onto properties. Properties were easy, we whipped right through it. We'll skip through geometry tomorrow, going to be rushed but he has some familiarity with it already. Review will be Thursday then he'll take the test, hopefully what we've covered is going to help him out.

Review of what was covered in the last few weeks including simplifying exponential equations, using scientific notation, and manipulating percents. Went over interpreting information from graphs and dealing with graphical word problems.

Worked with the student on using all of the information gained from a function and its first two derivatives to list details about the function, so that graphing it by hand becomes easier, such as max/min, intercepts, inflection points, etc.

We worked in more course materials and test ready exercises. The student is getting much more comfortable with direct and indirect objects. The listening parts are a little bit challenging but she is getting her Spanish hearing sharper day by day. We need to work on building sentences out of disordered given words and reflexive pronoun placement. Overall she is doing a great job with her class and we only work in her areas of need.

Today we did a review of fractions. She's okay with simple ones, but gets confused on mixed numbers. Afterwards we talked about the plan of how to get her up to speed in math. We also realized that, for now, having her follow diagrams of how to approach certain problems is a good way for her to get comfortable with doing the problems.
