    "My daughter has attended Philip Shore for 3 years. Each year her teachers have left for some reason or another. When I've asked about why her teachers keep leaving I was told they have a 3-6mo turn around with their teachers. Due to the teachers leaving in the middle of a school year or like this year they have left 2months prior to the end of the year my child has lost out on taking elective classes the reason she attends this school. Overall the school isn't bad it's just poorly put together in regards to structure. The office staff are friendly and helpful but there is no PTA but parents do receive Join our PTA packets all the time you pay your money but there is never a meeting the teachers hardly/never response to parent emails. There has been a couple of times when I child was out sick for weeks and when I requested her missed class assignments to take home her teachers never put the information together. Homework is a joke I can't remember the last time my child brought it home. The school is strict when it comes to HCPS rules but lack on some of them it's like they pick and choose which rules they wish to follow for each student."

    "I went to this school highly recommended but when I got there I didn't see what all the fuss was about. I guess by FL standards it was great but coming out of NJ is was no match to NJ public schools. I have to agree to tthe OP about the snotty parents. It's really ridiculous the way some of the parents act. There are also some teachers that will show preferential treatment to some of the kids. I think some of the parents primarily serve on the PA to act all snotty and to get their kids special privileges. I send my daughter to school but I fully home teach her to make sure she learns. She's in the gifted program and does very well so I don't need to pull out all my cards to get her any attention. I think it's OK. It's not by any means a bad school but I guess I just have really high expectations for her. I like that they have an immersion in the arts, which is what drew us there. You will still need to have your child in off campus institutions as they don't go in depth. They just primarily touch on the surface. It was a little better when we first got there 2 years ago but felt there has been a decline. I'm on a lot of the homeschooling sites so I can teach her at home as well."

    "We love Philip Shore Elementary. My daughter is in the 1st grade and this is her second year at Shore. The teachers are great and the school keeps you constantly informed of any changes or anything that may effect your child's learning experience. We love it and it is a shame will be moving to N. Florida and won't be able next year."

    "I have two very different kids in two first grade classes and they love it and are thriving. The teachers have their own styles, and are very good with communicating with me about the kids. The methods the school uses to encourage learning are wonderful. I wish more parents would participate in the programs - all this school needs is more active parents to help out."

    "We have been very impressed as all three of our children go to shore and they love it even with a long bus ride. The school radiates the caring that the teachers and staff have for the students. All of our children also are in the strings program and can not wait to get home and practice. A great school and highly recomend."
