    I am a Cocoa Beach High School graduate with an MBA. My daughter, 2 nieces and nephew recently graduated from this school. Thanks to the IB program and the fact that the teachers challenged my daughter she has a patent on one of her science fair projects. Her cousin along with a couple of her friends proposed the dog park for the city of Cocoa Beach as one of their projects. After presenting their class project to the city commissioners of CB the Lori Wilson dog park is always packed with puppy's (thank you CBHS). My nephew has sportsmanship awards & fond memories of many special moments on the football field. This show receives an A+ in my grade book!

    Wonderful school and great IB program! Principle Cool and all the faculty from the office to the Jr/Sr teachers along with the IB teachers are wonderful. There is nothing more important than "Beach Pride" and the principle facilitates this high integrity moral attitude in everything the children do. I am very thrilled that my daughter is fortunate to be attending the MYP program and look forward to her graduating from such a prestigious High School. What a rare opportunity to attend the same school for both Junior and Senior High. Go Minutemen!!!! Woo Hoo for Beach Pride!!

    Until Mr. Cool took over, CBHS used to be a great school. Because of the way he runs the school & doesn't support the faculty, many of the best teachers left for other schools. He doesn't care about the students, just himself & his blonde deans. Discipline is a joke now & the kids know it. There are some beautiful science labs at the school but students aren't allowed to use them. At graduation, the Minuteman Award used to go to someone who did a lot to help the students. Now it goes to people who give money to the athletic program. Because the IB & AP students are smart, Mr. Cool and the blondes are always putting them down. Ms. Vahn was a great principal. The teachers are great & really want the kids to succeed. Most of them arrive early & stay late to tutor students who need help.

    my child is enrolled in the IB program.. I am not that impressed. when our family was going to move to another state they actually said my child was behind and would have to retake a couple of classes, particularly the sciences since CBHS did not utilize the beautiful science labs they have at the school. i was dumbfounded that my child is in the IB and behind.. I also found that the administration is unorganized on the volunteer hours and the different projects are a joke. My child worked all year on his project in the 10th grade while some of his friends did it at the last minute with the same outcome which frustrated him. wouldnt do it again.

    i cant stand this school. I've been to six different schools this being my seventh and i hate it. A lot of the teachers are not very good at teaching the right things.

    The broad specturm of activities available in this school is unbelievable compare to other public & private schools. Music, art, and athletics are easily available. The parents are very active giving it more of a family environment a place where everyone knows your name. The teachers also tend to know a lot of the kids even if they are not in their class and they encourage (with some genlte nudging & pushing to not take the easy road-take the road that meet your potential. The kids describe it as pushy for a purpose.

    I'm not parent at this school, im a student. I just arrived here for 7th grade and let me tell you, your first few weeks are a crazy experience... Yes I do like the school, I feel that simply the way teachers teach here makes learning easier, and suprisingly fun! They all understand the fact that were still children, so they put us into consideration when making lesson plans, teaching ect. Other than the older kids being immature, I really do love this school. It gives me a new perspective of clenliness, and independence.

    CBHS has a lot going for it. Most importantly the high caliber of teachers it attracts. The assigned work challenges and raises student's achievement level. More is expected of the students and more is provided to them through discussion/interaction. Also, the school is not too highly populated, which directly corresponds to the quality of everything a student experiences on a day to day basis. One area of improvement is in one-on-one attention. Teachers will sometimes take the student's self-sufficiency for granted and the 'culture' of the classroom may not 'invite' a struggling student to ask for help. Teachers should be willing to reach out and offer whenever they see weak areas that could be improved with an after-hours meeting with the student. Teachers don't take the initiative to do this and students are embarrassed to seek them out.

    My daughter has attended Cocoa Beach for 2 years and is enrolled in the IB program. The quality of the education she is receiving far exceeded my expectations. She is involved in many extracurricular activities with both IB and non-IB students. I highly recommend this school!

    Okay, so I'm not a parent, but I do attend Cocoa Beach High. Its a perfectly safe environment where I feel I can learn what I need to succeed in life. We have the prestigious IB program for exceptional students which attracts people from all over the county, and I have lots of friends who are part of it, although I choose to take advanced placement classes. My father, cousin and brother all attended CBJSHS and they never had any complaints, and neither do I. The teachers are nice and offer help in the mornings/afternoon if I am having trouble in their classes, dress code is enforced for both students and faculty (despite a prior post) and there are a wide variety of extracurricular activities. I am by no means very enthusiastic about school in general, but I feel that this is really the best school. And lets just say that when I have kids, I won t hesitate to send them there.

    The school is challenging academically but it certainly prepares students for higher education. Unlike other schools we looked at, nearly all of the graduates go on to college.
