    "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."

    "Buckhorn teachers and supporting personnel are always performing at their best! The PTA and parent volunteers are supportive and a valuable asset to students and teachers. I would not want my children attending any other school. It is a gem! Teachers are caring as well as wanting the best education possible. My children want to go to school and they come home happy."

    "My child goes to Buckhorn this year and our experience is that the administrators lack caring. If you have a problem with a teacher, don't expect a reply to your email or a return phone call. I guess that is beneath the current principal and AP. My child has been discouraged time and time again at this school. She is an honor student and has never had a difficult time anywhere else. If I had only known what awaited her here I would have used my school choice for her to attend Valrico Elementary. After school, car riders are kept in the cafeteria and yelled at until they get picked up. The 5th graders are allowed only 1 recess a week because they are punishing the entire 5th grade for a fight between 3 students. This is just the tip of the ice berg at this place. Bad admin, sub par teachers, bad school."
