    "I'd like to make a comment to the parent complaining about the education at Buckhorn. I do not teach here, but I do teach at another elementary school in the district. Unfortunately it is the CCSS that are making us teach math equations a certain way and have taken away spelling. I try to incorporate spelling into mine, but with only so many hours in the day and with so many things we HAVE to teach, it is hard to do. YOU as a PARENT could teach the spelling if you wanted and if you felt it was that important. We do everything we can to teach your children what they need, but unfortunately we can't do it all. CCSS have now dictated what skills we teach and how we teach them. My kids are learning to do math in ways that are foreign to even me, but that's how they have it now. Please Don't bash a school when you don't know what's really going on. Its not the school, it's the educational system of FL."

    "Buckhorn Elementary has the potential to be great school but it is time for a change in Administration. The teachers are amazing but they aren't provided the support they need to succeed. This really effects student progress and what parents are told is not always what happens behind closed doors. :("

    "We have been so very blessed here at Buckhorn. The teachers go above and beyond to care for the students, challenge them academically, and to ensure they succeed. The principal, Mrs. Brooks, is the best you will ever find!! We love it here!!!"

    "Buckhorn has great amount of money and donations from the PTA. But, for the education part would be scored as below average. The teachers have their hands tied when teaching within the classroom. Teachers are unable to teach grammar, spelling, correct way to solve math equations. They also do not focus on History and Science in the classrooms until second quarter then is but on hold again until the last quarter of school. This school is more focused on testing the children then teaching the children how to read, write and conduct math problems. Examples of our frustrations: Math is being taught is a different way of drawing dots instead of solving the problems through proven mathematical steps. Buckhorn lacks constant focus in regards to English. They do not teach phonics nor spelling. When asking the past 5 years why the school does not teach spelling or grammar the school has explained most of the children will be writing on the computers in which has spell check. This comment has been made from teachers, vice principal and principal."

    "We are so happy at Buckhorn. My son is in 1st grade and has ADHD. The teachers and guidance department have gone above and beyond to help us get through the sometimes exhausting 504 Plan/IEP process. I trust both the principal and AP and know that the teachers there truly care about each child and making sure that child can excel."
