    "this school is horrible. i HAD to leave in 4th grade, (while this school ends in 8th including the middle campus). the lunches are normally a red liquid with some white pads or a good thing like a pack of mini cheeseburgers. im going to wesley matthews elementary for 2012-2013 school year. (5th grade) the reason i hate this school so much is that they dont encourage kids like they should. for example: when i was in second grade, i made my AR goal (a certain number of points you have to make by reading books and taking tests.) so i told my teacher, "i made my goal!" and she just blabbered "good for you. BACK TO WORK!!!!" the one and only teacher that is good is mrs. a.r. martinez. BEST TEACHER EVERRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i highly don't reccomend this school."

    "The school offers a decent education, but fails several areas. I am a parent of two children (one still there, one who left). Oversized class-counts. At least one class has more than the law allows (over 20 instead of 18). The principal plays with the number, but this does not change it: they are violating the law. The Principal is rude and mean. She yells at parents, even when they are supporting the school in PTA events. Almost no field trips. Your child will have friends at other schools who go out often, but not your child if you are at CGE. Do not go to complain, because she holds grudges. Does she keep this job because her husband is a lobbyist at the school board? There is NO emphasis on science education except for a once a year science fair. Math education is very bad. The school puts energy into reading, which is great, but it seems very little in math. There are not any electronic resources, but there are several for reading. As a result, my older child struggled with his first weeks in middle school, but we hired a tutor, and he later placed up a grade level. If you have choices, consider them. For middle school- LEAVE. There are many better options."

    "The winning recipe for this school's success is the level of parental involvement, typically lacking in the public school system. The teachers are indeed wonderful and do their best within the constraints of a public school curriculum and the bureaucratic non-sense. The Gifted program is good without an inordinate amount of homework. Overall, I am sufficiently pleased with the education my son has received, although I do supplement his learning in the areas of geography, music, and sports."

    "This is a great school. I graduated in 2009 and entered the school in pre k. All my teachers were so supportive and just great. I wouldn't have gone to any other school. both of my bothers also went to this school and are now two bright high schoolers. One of them attends the IB program in Coral Gables high school and the other goes to dash. Two great schools."
