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:
