Principal's Message

 

On Behalf of my administrative team and the entire Cavalier Faculty, I would like to introduce to you Coral Gables High Schoolís for the 2011-2012 school year.  We will continue implementing innovative changes such as the National Secondary School Reform Act and the movement toward Smaller Learning Communities that are designed to move students forward into the 21st Century.  These initiatives also emphasize the three new Rís: rigor, relevance and relationships; consequently, reducing the achievement gap, increasing graduation rates and improving access and entrance to post-secondary education.  In addition, we are excited to introduce on campus Dual Enrollment courses as well as expanding our Gifted Program by offering content based classes.

In order to execute Secondary School Reform, Coral Gables High School has instituted academy learning where students, in addition to the standard graduation requirements, select a major area of interest and take electives in one of the following six academies:

  • ACADEMY OF BUSINESS, MANAGEMENT AND INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY
    (NATIONAL ACADEMY FOUNDATION NAF: ACADEMY OF FINANCE)

  • ACADEMY OF COMMUNICATION ARTS, FILM AND DIGITAL MEDIA

  • ACADEMY OF HEALTH SCIENCE, PUBLIC SERVICE AND LAW

  • ACADEMY OF DESIGN, EDUCATION AND HOSPITALITY

  • ACADEMY OF LIBERAL ARTS  (INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE)

  • ACADEMY OF VISUAL & PERFORMING ARTS

The aforementioned academies offer new and exciting educational opportunities for our entire student body and have been designed to raise student achievement and provide exposure to a wide array of industry certification opportunities. I am fully confident that after reviewing this site, every student will be able to tailor a rich, challenging and rewarding educational pathway that will broaden horizons, assisting them in attaining academic goals and achieve their maximum potential.

It is in the fortitude, of furthering Coral Gables High Schoolís long tradition of advancing academic excellence, that I, your Principal, encourage you to review this site, to review your options and opportunities and to construct an individual educational pathway that will assist you in achieving your goals.

Sincerely,

 

Mr. Adolfo Costa

Principal
