    "We are moving to Florida from another state soon, my child will be attending this school. After reading the reviews I'm nervous. It seems like there's a lot of drama.... A lot of conflict between staff and parents...."

    "Several wonderful teachers who will try so hard to work with your child,but your child will NEVER be good enough for their "standards" no matter how hard they try, and you try!!! The principal wants little robots.......It is NOT fun for kids, I have never seen a school w/ leadership such as this one!!!!!! They rip your childs self esteem apart!!!! It is SOOO sad to see your child doing great, from where they were the year before, and being,"told its just not good enough." They encourage leaving students behind to get a higher "FL school rating." Of course they're going tosore a higher School rating, when they have a bunch of 8 yr. old first graders taking a first grade test. The principal will not allow field trips, when they can afford it. I have talked to many parents who were in the same situation as ours, and got they're kids out as well. I must add that they DO have a VERY involved PTA, who plan great activities, and set up so many fun things for the kids to do. One of the best PTA's that I have seen in a school!!!!!"

    "This is an Excellent School! The curriculum is challenging. The support staff is amazing in meeting the individual needs of my children. The principal, Nancy Simon, is a natural leader and makes tough decisions on a daily basis. She never seems bothered by the many parental concerns. And she quickly has a solution, which involves the knowledgeable faculty members. Our children are getting a quality education and much more. They are continuously challenged to be moral, upstanding citizens. It is interesting to see the two negative comments here: 1. ... Is a CHILD. Sorry but a review by an elementary student should not be allowed here. Not to mention, this specific student is repeating something her parent 'said' a teacher 'said'. 2. The other negative comment is a parent, who wanted to return to the school, but was denied an out of zone waiver. If the school, faculty, and principal were so bad, why would you want to go to it? Seems like the negative feedback is due to the waiver being denied. Neither are fair comments and anyone viewing should "consider the source"."

    "This school is amazing. The staff is phenomenal . My kids love this school. Teachers care about students in this school and I see it on a day to day basis. My son is on his 3rd year here and has developed an excellent relationship with the whole staff! He still goes to say hi, to both his previous teachers! The children are not only safe, but the FEEL safe as well.. 10 stars all the way!!"

    "Each year, we are impressed with the teachers at CRE. It is run like a really good private school. Every situation is handled quickly and professionally by the teacher/s, Assistant Principal, and Principal. My children have grown as better people-in part, because of experiences at CRE. One of my children is a quick-learner, which was noticed by every teacher he came in contact with. They always acknowledged his need for a fast-paced learning environment and provided what was need in order for him to continue to excel. The principal is extremely consistent. She is a professional and ensures that all the staff members act professionally, as well. I had to laugh when I read the two reviews below: one from a student, whose parent was upset that CRE wanted to succeed with FCAT! The other, was a parent who was unhappy with things but still wanted to receive a zone waiver to attend the school. When she did not receive it, she posted a negative review. Not getting what you want, is not a reason to throw a fit. Excellent school, safe environment, strong academics.... Moving to Citrus County? Make sure to get a home zoned for this school!"
