    "Sunset Palms has proven to be an A rated school not only in terms of grades but as far as parental support, communication and charitable involvement in the community. The way it reaches out to all student and families in order to help those less fortunate has shown their commitment to the community, not only its' own school, but the neighboring schools."

    "Is very overrated! Principal is never seen and her focus is ONLY on FCAT scores! There is no innovative teaching going on whatsoever! Children are being bullied at lunchtime which is most likely because of the way the cafeteria and the tables are set up as well as during recess. The guidance counselor and administration turn a blind eye to parent and student complaints by placating the situations. This school looks good on paper but in reality is no better than any other school with many internal problems with many low quality teachers and uninvolved administration. The hardest and most dedicated employees are the front office staff and assistants!"

    "Needs a lot of improvement. My child has also been doing differential equations. The method used was overly complicated. This is how the school is run - nothing makes sense or is standard from one class to another. Some great teachers but some awfu ones. One teacher has had compaints since the opening. Principal won't get rid of her. Principal should be fired. She is weak and doesn't manage or develop her teachers. From SAC meetings, I can say she is a "NO" person. Nothing can change or get better with this type of attitude. Florida has a terrible school system but with a strong principal, all students could still excel. I know because I've learned to teach my 3 children what that they don't get at school by reading and getting ideas online. The teachers teach from the book, that's it - no creativity. They also teach to the test when they teach: 5th grade doesn't do any writing because there isn't a 5th grade FCAT writing exam. Our science teacher shows a video, does digital lessons and allows the children to read their books. She doesn't acutally teach the class. I've been told many times C is average-it's OK. Such a poor attitude"
