    "In reality, this should be a preschool only. K-8 grades are not up to standard. Administration and teachers lack the educational vision needed for today. They must develop an education backbone, not a wishbone to stay competitive. All the renovations mean little if the education standard is so low. Teacher's should be qualified and vetted to meet the criteria set by state and federal guidelines. There are too many problems to mention. I recommend any school but this one. They have much renovation work to do with their teaching and administrative structure or else it will crumble. All the paint and landscaping cannot make up for poor quality for education. Pray for guidance."

    "The school is beautiful, but it's standards are very low. The children are combined in classes, but they share a curriculum, for instance a 6th grader may be using 5th grade books one year because they alternate text books each year. The teachers are not qualified, 1 teacher's previous experience was just homeschooling her children. Some teachers didn't even have their teaching certificates. I'm surprised this school is still open, and it's a shame that the administration doesn't try to improve the school since it has been renovated recently. My child was only there one year, and only learned how to spell, and Bible stories."

    "Horrible! My child learned hardly anything at this school. The administration doesn't care to hear about any concerns you may have as a parent and the curriculum is not teaching the children. The tuition is low compared to other private schools...but I guess you get what you pay for because the children are not learning at grade level and the administration just doesn't want to be bothered if you express concerns about your child academically."

    "Without a doubt, Shepherd of the Coast is a great secret within Ft Lauderdale. The early childhood education center is phenomenal. The teachers are wonderful, loving and the focus is on education. The children learn so much more than abc's and 123s, rather they focus on the whole child. My daughter now attends kindergarten with Mrs Gorwood and I could not be more happy. The class is very small which means a great deal of one on one time. Spanish, music, library, PE, computer class, etc keeps my girl busy and challenged throughout the day. She wakes up excited about school. She tells me everyday how much she loves her teachers. She has made amazing progress thus far in her first year. She even comes home so excited to sing new songs to me in English, Spanish and in sign language. Not only are the teachers dedicated, the new principle is wonderful. Firm yet very loving. He cares so much for the school that I see him working outside helping with the development projects. The school is small enough so that even the 8th graders and other teachers know my daughter personally. The school is truly a community focused on the development of our children."

    "Shepherd of the Coast is a wonderful place! My two sons attend school here (1st grade and pre-K3) and I have never been happier with what they are learning and the care they are getting. I have never heard a complaint from either one and I know they both love the school and teachers. The teachers and staff are fantastic; they listen to concerns and ideas, are extremely helpful in any way, and most importantly to me, are just so caring with my sons. The curriculum is very well put together and I am looking forward to the new blended learning system with chrome books. I have been so impressed with this school that we (my family) became church members here and have tried to be involved as much as we can with school events. I can't express how happy I am everyday knowing that my boys are here at this school. It is peace of mind and so much more!"
