    "This school HAS gone through a lot of transition but my two sons are in the Elementary school and both love it and both are at the top of their class. I am pretty involved with the school and see no "cliques, fights" or 'snobbiness', the teachers and principal are ALWAYS there for you however big or small your problem is and make sure to find resolution! I am not sure how it dropped to a 'C' rating since both my boys (and their friends that I talk to) are doing so well there. They have a great computer lab, art program, after school clubs, gifted program or tutoring if needed. It is definitely worth a look if you want a smaller school with a lot of individual attention for you child and that's exactly what my boys receive and why I think their grades are so high."

    "We've really worked hard to give this school the benefit of the doubt over the years but it has always been a struggle to keep the school in communication with us. Their use of the website is poor at best when compared to even the common public schools when it comes to tracking a students progress. Every year, sometimes every semester, there has been teacher-turnover in at least one or more classes which notably effects the teaching process in the classroom. The last school rating by the State for this school is a "C" with an asterisk, the asterisk means the school drop in grade was limited by a new rule implemented that a school can only drop one grade level per year, so it actually earned a "D" or lower,the GreatSchools rating is probably an accurate representation of the quality of education you can expect from this school. I like that it is a small school, and they do provide a lot of individual attention, especially if you are an involved parent. A lot of improvement in their existing PK-8 curriculum is needed and they really need to do a lot of work to make themselves the "Stand Out" kind of school that they think they are."

    "I am a big fan of both the elementary and middle school, since both of my kids have enjoyed much success. My daughter, who has now graduated, scored very highly on a national placement exam and is now getting straight A's in an honors program in high school. Several of her former elementary school teachers and her middle school teachers are still at Suncoast. My son, who is also doing very well academically, has been able to participate in the scuba club. They have never had a significant problem with bullying. If you want all the bells and whistles, you can look elsewhere. If you want a school that offers a strong education and where the teachers care about your child as an individual, then this is the place. I was just speaking to a new parent yesterday who transferred his child from a local large middle school. He said that the transformation in his son has been nothing short of 'miraculous'."

    "Honestly, this school doesnt offer as much as other school's. The middle school is much better than the elementary in teaching terms. Short and sweet if you want a better school pick something else."

    "Actions speak louder than words. Unfortunately, the "zero-tolerance for bullying" policy at SSIS is just words."
