I went to this school in 2nd grade up until the 5th grade.

Quality of academic programs: Following a curriculum strictly based on passing the FCAT, the quality is standard. I have three children enrolled, each in different grades and all are studying the same materials (in different depths) but the same subjects year after year. No wonder they are bored. Extracurricular activities: This is an area which I consider substandard. Handbells, chorus, yearbook, and LAST year a football team. Academic awards: Reading counts, free books for achieving goals, nice program, although one of my children finds it difficult to find books of interest. Facilities: Aside from the rumored rat problem of last year, the a/c problems in one building, the facilities are clean and well kept. A+ to the janitorial staff. Parent Involvement: I've seen a great deal of parental involvement.
