I went to Palm harbor middle back in 1997-1999, I tutored as Mrs Karow's T.A. for 6th period from 1999-2003. I was an honoroll student and even made deans list by 8th grade. If it wasnt for the great teachers here I would of dropped out. My Elm years were troubling with my learning disability. The teachers here do care if your kids are willing to learn. This school is well maintained and has high FCAT scores. I plan on returning to tutor again in math for 6th-8th graders. The work load depends on the teacher, and they are preparing students for highschool. Highschool is much harder then middle school and your child will have a much greater workload. HomeWork is important, and very neccesary for students to learn quickly. Use Flash cards! Guaranteed A in vocabulary, and helps in all classes for studying and math.

Special needs are not well taken care of. It has been a disappointing experience.
