I’m excited for the start, of what I know, will be a great 2018-2019 school year. We are especially excited as we continue to expand our new Cambridge Innovative Program which will allow our students the opportunity to earn college credit and an AICE (International Diploma). Our goal is to prepare our students to graduate with the skills and knowledge necessary to enter college and/or the workforce successfully.
We have a staff of professional educators, dedicated to the success of all of our students, utilizing the latest in educational research. However, it takes more than just great teachers and staff, it takes a team to ensure that we are successful in our vision; teachers, parents, students and partners, working together toward a common goal: Giving our students the very best instruction and experiences possible each and every day.
Parents, I encourage you to remain active in your child’s education by joining our PTSO, School Advisory Council or volunteering here on our campus. All great schools have strong connections with the families and communities they serve, sharing in the responsibility of educating our students. Coral Glades is a great school because of our families and partners and the support they provide.
Students, I want to encourage you to select the most challenging courses possible and to explore one of our many Honors, Advanced Placement, Cambridge, and Dual Enrollment classes we offer. In addition, you have a plethora of choices in Career and Technical courses, such as, Health Sciences, Business/DECA, Computer Science, Culinary Arts and Engineering, along with a wide spectrum of electives including music, drama,chorus, painting, JROTC and physical education, just to name a few.
The Coral Glades Athletic Department offers over fifteen different sports including football, baseball, golf, track cheerleading, basketball, swimming and many, many more! In the past two years, we’ve won six state titles while competing at the district and regional level, sending several students to college with full athletic scholarships.
I encourage each and every student to join a sport, club or organization and to stay involved in Jaguar Life. We have so many opportunities for you to have a positive school experience beyond our classroom walls. Embody the Jaguar motto, S.R.I. (Spirit, Responsibility and Involvement) and walk proud, because you are a member of the Coral Glades Family! Let’s have a great year together JAGs, and welcome to the Jaguar Nation!
It’s A Great Day To Be A Jaguar!
