Who Are We?
Friends of Gables High is a not-for-profit volunteer board of Gables alumni and community leaders that care deeply for Gables High, its students, and our community. Friends primary goal is to help students excel in academics, athletics, and the arts in a state-of-the-art facility that will benefit the students and the Coral Gables community.
Friends of Gables is actively working on restoring Gables’ historic status as a top-rated school. At one point, Gables was amongst the top ten public schools in the nation, yet with the emergence of more public, private, and charter high schools, maintaining this title has proven difficult. Nonetheless, the academics at Gables remain strong, if not stronger than when its doors opened in 1950. Friends of Gables High will endeavor to have the school be nationally recognized for its academic programs.
Administration Priorities & Supporting students
Friends of Gables High will advocate on behalf of the school for additional funding as deemed appropriate and necessary, such as in the case of a new band building. We will also be vocal on educational issues, as well as tout the school’s great qualities in an effort to change any negative narrative about the school.
Friends of Gables High will have regular get-togethers and events to connect alumni and the community to the school. We will maintain a website with up-to-date information regarding the school and alumni activity. We will send out a newsletter 3-4 times a year to keep Friends of Gables High members in the loop as to what we are doing, what we have achieved, and what our goals are as time goes on.
Calling all Future cavaliers
Nowadays, prospective students and parents have much more freedom when choosing from the variety of high schools present in the Miami-Dade County area.

Friends of Gables will work diligently in efforts of reaching out to the community to ensure they are up-to-date with all of the school’s many accomplishments.
