I absolutely love Citrus Park Elementary. My oldest started out here, he's now 14 and attending Sickles. My daughter attends the VPK program . The teachers are so helpful, caring, and show true interest in the well being of the children. I have twin boys expected to attend next year and can't wait. The school has so many opportunities to stay involved and updated, the fundraising is not overwhelming or pushy . My kids feel like they belong and are safe . I really would recommend this school to any parent living in the 33625 area ... a true blessing and much needed community school... xoxo

my son went to Citrus Park Elementary for a few years. It started off okay. Now with new faculty , it has changed. The office staff is extremely rude, the teachers fight amongst themselves. The teachers talk about each other in front of the kids. They scream and put their fingers in the kids faces. The yell and humiliate the kids in front of their peers . If their was a problem with my son, the principal just blew it off. she didn't have any concern with my issues. Volunteers are talked about and not appreciated at all. Over all, I will be glad when my son is out of this school. Bad , rude staff. Bad leadership, mean teachers.
