There is no question that, overall, the staff and faculty are qualified and dedicated. However, the school seems to be slow in identifying specific, and varying degrees of learning disabilities.
My son has been in Calusa for a couple yrs. now and has done very well. He began enjoying school again. He loves his teacher and because of that he is looking forward to another year with her. He is actually looking forward to going back to shcool. I have to say that I give the credit all to Mrs. Dilbert she truley cares about her kids and not only do we see it, but so do the childeren.
We came to Calusa mid year and found everyone to be extremely helpful in making our daughters transition to a new school as smooth as possible. We found a wonderful community of people both in the classroom and in the main offices. This is, in our opinion, a truly model school and we consider ourselves extremely lucky to have been part of it for the second half of the school year, which marked the end of our daughter's elementary schooling.
My son has extra help after school for reading and math. This is an excellent program at no cost. His 4th gr teacher sincerely takes an interest in his academics. Hats off to Mrs. Dilbert of the 4th grade!
