    "The spanish immersion program is rewarding and the teachers are awsome! Both my children are in the immersion program this year, one going into 3rd grade and other going ikn KG. Great school, great staff, excellent teachers. They however need to work on communication with teachers, and work on their healthier lunch menus."

    "I have a child in the dual language program and I absolutely love it. Having had older children in various other local schools I find the dual language program academically superb. All the dual language teachers seem dedicated and do an awesome job. I can highly recommend this program. As far as the regular class room settings and teachers go, I don't have much knowledge other then mixed information from other parents. The only negative thing I can say is, that (probably due to the size of the school) many big events seem unorganized. Also the front office staff is, as prior mentioned her, not very friendly or helpful. The ladies seem aggravated when asked for something and I almost get a feeling of being a bother. This is not acceptable, since the front office staff are the first to greet a new face. One other thing I have noticed is, that parent involvement (other then connected to the PTA membership) seems unwanted or discouraged. I think that was also mentioned in a prior post."

    "The teachers at this school are fantastic! The adminstration leaves alot to be desired. They do not work well with the PTA and even ask parents to break the rules of the PTA."

    "I am one of the parents that always raved over this school. I loved everyone, staff , teachers and adminstration. I had heard other complain but never saw it myself. I was a very active volunteer for 9 years and was treated great. Until this year, I was told to only help in class, and ignored when I questioned why. I volunteered to take a prominent position in PTA and was ignored and recieved no answer. I still love the teachers who try their best but the adminstration ruins this school. Past Vice Principals have told me they had issues with the principal which caused them to leave."

    "You guys need to call the superintendent especially the ones that have already left because of this school for good reason because of this principal.. don't go with ridiculous reasons go prepared but don't let her get away with this. She only gets a year to year contract and either she gets rid of the people in her office that doesn't know how to respect people and great them with a smile and talk to them with respect or she can hire someone who can. Its a principals job to step up and lead not her staffs. If she doesn't know her parents and her students then shame on her for not being able to have her own backbone. You need to report her. In Florida you need to set up a meeting with her superintendent I first then if that doesn't work set it up with the county if it gets to the county you will be her and her head will roll trust me! I work for the county! I know who your talking about and she already has a record of not doing her job well and her staff has been reported more then once and there is a big clean house about to happen with this school if something doesn't turn around this year so hold tight!"
