in the last weekWe are very privileged to have our son begin his very first years of education at this school. His teacher Ms. Garcia, is an exceptional person who is kind, compassionate, patient and very knowledgeable in elementary instruction. As parents, we feel very confident our child will be exposed to not only an outstanding education, but he will also receive the benefits of growing up in a caring environment. Thank you for all of the "shooting stars!" We love this concept! It keeps our son motivated and doing very, very well!

This is an excellent elementary and there is also a PLC for Kinder and 1st grade that is also excellent. Administration and teachers are the best I could have ever hoped for (Mrs Laden, you are the best). My sons are happy and did well on FCAT and SATs.

Urban Public Schools Come to the Rescue of Black Boys
Public schools across the nation are implementing programs that help keep young black men in school and off the streets. Boosting graduation rates, reducing gang involvement and violence, and providing positive male role models are just a few of the common elements of these programs. Yet, the achievement gap between black boys and other peer groups remains extremely wide.
