    "Florence is an amazing elementary school with a community feel. Students feel as if they are part of a big family and are motivated to learn. My grandson is excited to go to school every day! He is in Transitional Kindergarten and is reading, writing, adding and subtracting! I am so impressed with the quality of teaching at this school."

    "I will immediately give this school 5 stars. I grew up in that school. The teachers love you and treat you like their own. Ms.Mackenzie was like my family. She was my 1-2nd grade teacher. I am now in 8th grade and we mail each other, go to the zoo together, I know her husband and cats like they are my family. I hated leaving that school it's like a home, every kid loves learning here. Ms. Fox, Ms. Murphy, Ms. Miller, and Ms. Mackenzie are astonishing teachers. I love them so much I always love visiting that school over and over. -A proud former student I had an amazing time there"

    "The Majority of the school staff are very RUDE in the front office. The do not make you feel welcomed and treat you with little respect. I have not seen a lot of parent involvement with this School as they make comments about keeping the attendance numbers up to get better funding etc. The principal is LAZY and very unprofessional. The teacher my child has right now has poor communication skills with returning calls or emails when I have inquired updates regarding my child. The Prime Time Staff is great and are very professional and approachable and treat you with respect. The school staff should treat all of the parents good as our children attending their school pays their bills and keeps lots of food on the table for them. I only gave them 1 STAR as their was not a button for Negative Star! Oh and to boot the location is terrible located in the middle of a industrial area. Their is a Smog shop across the street and all Commercial Properties surrounding this school. I'm not sure how they even have lasted this long with the lack of service and bad attitude. Yes I'm a very disgruntled parent and look forward to move my child to a different school that is a better fit!"

    "What stand out for this school is the prime time. Ms. Trei is wonderful, and her yourng team works very hard. The kids never get board because there are so many activities after school (in prime time). Teachers are great too. I am not sure why this school rated so low."
