Coral Reef High School (CRHS), known as Miami’s “Mega-Magnet,” serves the ethnically and racially diverse Miami-Dade County population of 2.6 million people. Students interested in Agri-science, Engineering Technology, Business and Finance, Legal and Public Affairs, Health Sciences, Visual and Performing Arts, or the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme apply for admission to “Cuda Nation.” CRHS, in partnership with all of its stakeholders, creates a community of learners who embrace their diversity, yet work together united by a common purpose: to acquire the knowledge and skills required for success as citizens of a global society. Recognized as our district’s “triple threat,” CRHS has conquered Academics, the Arts, and Athletics. With more than 4,200 Advanced Placement (AP) and 3,000 IB exams administered, a distinguished visual and performing arts program, and recognition as Miami Dade County Public Schools’ second overall sports program, it is easy to see why we are a force to be reckoned with. School administrators meet regularly with the school’s leadership team to make data-driven decisions that directly impact the school. In order to ensure collaborative leadership, a unique multi-tiered approach has been implemented that engages students, parents, teachers, department chairs, counselors, lead teachers, and administrators to ensure educational and civic goals of the school are met. This approach by school personnel, the involvement and support of the parents, the sense of responsibility and belonging engendered by the academies, and the overall culture of learning and achievement that exists, defines CRHS as an exemplary high school.
