    "NOT ALL 10-RATINGS ARE DESERVING: MANATEE Will Teach Your Kid How To Score Higher On FCATs And LEARN Much Less - They Will Learn That PRAISE Is Over-rated, Unless The PAID Staff Is Receiving It - MANATEE Will Teach That Kids Only Count As Far As It BENEFITS The School or Admin; KIDS And Parents Are To Remain Quiet And Not DARE Question Nor Think - To Be Submissive, OR Suffer The Consequences - Not Mutual RESPECT or Performance - What Matters And Is Important Here Will Be DICTATED, So Grin And Bear It! - This School Will Provide ALL That, And So MUCH Less. - These Are YOUR KIDS, So SELECT Wisely. - Without Our Kids Or Money, They Have Nothing... USE IT! - YOUR Kids Are There ALONE ALL Day Being Intimidated; With NO Representation - If They Complain To You Today, Tomorrow They Are Back ALONE With Them - The Less A Parent Knows, The More They'll Love This Place. GET INFORMED! - There Is Only One BROWN To Be Concerned Of, NOT The Others - PARENTS Show Up, Don't Accept ANYTHING Blindly, Make DEMANDS, And STAY Involved AND Be Seen!"

    "The School Appears To Have A High Rating, but overall it has plenty of shortcomings. The Academics are limited to what the Administration determines how it benefits him and the school's ranking, rather than the student's benefit. Trophies for the School, Nothing for the kids. The students are discouraged from independent thinking, by the over use of written reprimands and intimidation tactics by the Teachers. There is virtually No Physical Activities, they discuss it more than actually going out nor a true recess or physical games. No actual Certificates are issued if your child achieves Honors, etc. but they get a Tag or a Coupon from a Vendor. Perhaps paper isn't in the budget. There is No playful commencement on the last year at the school either, although a Clap-out is okay, but Not the same. The Principal Dictates over the staff, and expects that All Activities and Yearbooks will have an Inflated Price to gain a Commission profit from it. If possible, I would avoid Manatee Elementary and would find a home within Quest or Ralph Williams, or any other. Any school where the children matter more than the Administrator's career and false self-accolades."

    "I am VERY happy with our overall experience at Manatee. I have safety concerns and have never received such wonderful genuine action from any other school like we have had with Manatee. Mrs. DeSantis was our first teacher there when we moved to Manatee and I cannot even put in words just how wonderful she is. My son took pride in learning because of her and he went from struggling and feeling left behind in other school to feeling excited about learning and we saw such a huge improvement. The school overall communicates VERY well and the training they must have in safety again HIGHLY IMPRESSIVE. MR. Brown is the perfect principal and I feel so blessed to have had our son attend such a fine school. I think more schools need to have the kind of safety training and unity this school has. It felt like they were all on the same page. EXCELLENT communication. Mrs Eckert was our Second Grade Teacher and our son seemed to have the same experience with being given the tools to achieve. Obviously I personally have had the best experience here."

    "This school runs off students who don't fit the mold. If your child doesn't perform at the top the ridiculous amount of testing and assessments they will try to convince you to retain your child. What is worse, a good portion of the kids in the area seem to be on add drugs. If your kid thrives on spitting out massive amounts of standardized test prep worksheets and you're a parent who doesn't care about whether your child is getting any sort of deep learning experiences, then this is the school for you."

    "During recess, multiple teachers are out on the playground talking, not watching children, while multiple children are playing and as a result various injuries have occurred. The wait to get into the school is ridiculous. You may wait in line for 10-14 minutes, finally get to drop your child off and then the buzzer sounds, then your child is tardy. Multiple suggestions are brought up to the administration on ways to have effective change and the principal has no interest. If your child is well beyond what the classroom is learning, there are no suggestions or attempts to advance the child. Unfortunately, if a child has some learning challenges, the parents get phone calls constantly. I am very displeased with how the principal takes no interest with the kids or the environment. Creativity for the kids is limited. Remember, they are kids. Stop focusing on scores. They are all individuals. Some will be doctors, lawyers, artists, mechanics. Some will make fantastic scores and make nothing of their life while others may not test well and become anything they desire."
