    "A district ahead of most and top in the state for at least 20 years.Pre-1st is an oppty not avail in most districts. With a curriculum developed in conjunction w/ the K and 1st programs, it prepares children not developmentally ready for 1st grade. Parents in other districts send their kids to private/Catholic school or have them repeat at the same school, so there is no ability to coordinate their learning. Statistically, the children in other districts are the same age. The school doesn't just look good because SOME children are "held back" as another parent suggested. Some kids are almost a full year younger/older simply because of the cut off. My son just made the cut off and a good portion of children missed that same cut off the year prior, so they're almost a year older than he is. There isn't anything underhanded going on to give the Unionville children an advantage. This is a district that has recognized, studied and developed a program to accommodate an issue that occurs naturally. It's not a requirement. Numbers don't lie- they don't have enough children recommended for Pre-First grade to support a claim they are holding children back. Absurd and misinformed."

    "Pocopson is a GREAT school! We have very high expectations for our schools (think tiger mom & dad ), and Pocopson meets every single one of our expectations. It s obviously strong academically, as evident by its impeccable test scores. But more importantly, it gives your child a very complete education. Its math classes are divided into 3 levels starting from 3rd grade (compacted, high-avg, and avg), so regardless your child s level, s/he will fit in with the right group. There is a strong AT (academically talented) enrichment program for certain kids requiring special challenges. There are talent shows, class parties, 1st-grade poetry readings, field trips, Reading Olympics, Read-a-thon, geo-bee, spelling-bee, and countless other programs that make elementary years a memorable one. Pocopson parents are always VERY involved. It s common for an evening open-house event to have 30+ parents showing up for a class of 20. While many of the above qualities are true for all elementary schools in the UCFSD, under the leadership of a strong principal, Pocopson s teachers are creative, dedicated, and loving. Most importantly, I have two kids in this school and they LOVE it!"

    "Don't move to this school district because you are lured by its high test scores or reputation. It is good school, but part of the reason it looks so good is because many parents hold their kids until they are 6 years old to enter Kindergarten, or recommend those who are 5 years old to go to their pre-first, a clever program in-between Kindergarten and First Grade. The advantage to this is that most of the students are a year older than students in other districts in the same grade, this having the age/maturity advantage with influences test scores. So you aren't getting any more fantastic teachers or amazing resources than other schools, this just makes it seem that way."

    "My daughter just entered kindergarten this year and it has been a very positive experience. The school environment is top-notch; from the bright and cheery murals and artwork on the walls to the principal, teachers and staff that are professional and full of high positive energy. The school has a strong emphasis on academic, core values and respect for each child."
