    "My son graduated MPES last year. He got a 5 on his Math, Reading and Science FCAT and just missed one question on each section (so it was a nearly perfect FCAT, which is probably one of the top scores in Palm Beach County). He got a perfect 4th grade math FCAT (every question correct). He just started middle school at St. Andrews and they placed him in 7th grade honors math and accelerated Spanish). So far, he has gotten an A on every single middle school test and middle school is a piece of case. His MPES education rivals that of his peers who all went to the lower school at St Andrews (and paid over $120K for that same education). My daughter is doing equally well in 5th grade. This is an amazing school with incredible teachers who made meaningful and significant contributions to their kids lives. I have no doubt that my kids will go to top colleges and their education started at MPES!"

    "Lat school year my child was a first grader at MPES.To the parent who posted Aug 9, 2012: I can tell you it isn't the students who are texting during class it's the teachers. My child was in a very large 1st grade classroom with 3 teachers. When the full time teacher did show up to work, she spent alot of time texting, emailing etc. My daughters end of the year portfolio had 9 pages of work. In kindergarden her portfolio was 6 inches thick!! Her homework was very limited. I can tell you she knows how to spell very diffucult words. She just can't write easy sight words, as none of her spelling was ever corrected on paper, just on spelling tests. The highlight of the art program was learning who Leoanardo DiVinci was. Never did art projects. PE in classroom or in bus circle.. Advised she be tested for gifted prog. by kindergarden teacher. By the end of kindergarden the school had never tested her. They tested her at the beginnng of 1st grade, she missed the gifted program by 1 point. The precentage of gifted students at MPES is 0. This is why FCAT scores continue to be high. MPES doesn't want gifted minds to leave the school. My daughter no longer attends MPES."

    "Hey viewers! I'm a student at MPES. I am going into my last year of Morikami park elementary school. All of the kids are soo nice and are always on their best behavior. Ever since I entered the school, I have gotten AMAZING teachers. My mother is a first grade teacher at Morikami and she works harder than any average teacher at any school, along with all the other teachers at MPES. The principals us students have had are incredible and some of the best things that ever happened to the school. The academic studies given to me are beyond what anybody would think. All of the teachers are incredibly kind. For example, my past teacher gave the whole class personal gifts! Without the encouragement and effort of the teachers and staff, I wouldn't have gotten a perfect score in reading, one Q. wrong in math and a truck load of pride seeping into me when I saw my FCAT scores last year. This is not and average school, so put your kid in the lottery for this MPES!"

    "The administration (principal, vice principal and IB coordinator) personally spent every morning tutoring children to help them pass the FCAT. To call them "hands off" is entirely inaccurate. The teachers spend many hours after school working with students to help them pass the FCAT as well. It is a state mandated test and we are fortunate to have an administrative staff and teachers dedicated to ensuring our children are successful,whether we approve of the test or not. To the parents who make copies in the office and anywhere else, thank you for donating your valuable time to help the teachers. Since they do not have to make copies they have more time to dedicate for lesson plans, grading paper and parent/teacher conferencing. Thank you for providing them with this time to help our children reach their full potential. The IB Foundation has purchased items that directly impact our children: additional desktop computers for classrooms, laptops, software, printer cartridges, and math and science lab supplies just to name a few items. Thank you to the administration, staff of teachers and volunteers who make Morikami a truly special and amazing school."

    "I am curious as a parent of a child who will be starting Kindergarten next year if those that are giving one star to the school can actually comment on the classroom education their child is receiving and what about it is good and what needs improvement. The reason I ask is that the reviews that give one stars are not stating reasons why the school is not a good school for educational purposes (since that is what school is about). The complaints seem more superficial. I have seen a few that have to do with parents being too snobby, perceived favoritism from the principal to those who volunteer/contribute a lot of money, and one to do with what a PE Teacher wears to school which should be irrelevant (although I do and understand and appreciate the argument of their not being enough time given for the children to have PE) I am more interested in the quality of the teachers, and the curriculum taught."
