My son has attended this school since 2nd grade. He is in the gifted program and has experienced a tremendous amount of growth. My only concern is there wasn't any continuation from 2 to 3rd grade. A tremendous amount of emphasis was placed on writing in 2nd grade and hardly any in 3rd. By the time my son went to fourth he almost had to start over.
Great elementary program, good, caring teachers, facilities are more than adequate, many after school programs.
I just finished 5th grade last year. It is a good school and from my two years spent there I say that the Strict but nice Mrs. Milano helped prepare me well for middle school. It is so easy now M.S.
Although we have only been at this school for one year, we are very happy with the teaching staff and our daughter's progress. They have been wonderful with fulfilling our special needs as our daughter has diabetes.
Close by to our home, that's a plus! Our teacher was fairly new at the school, gaining experience. Other school related activities ran very smoothly, and the front staff is great and extremely helpful!
We moved to Florida from NJ. This school is horrible. My son entered the 5th grade and we pulled him out in the middle of the year. The school is extremely overcrowded. There is no money even for portable classrooms. Palm Beach County is supposed to be one of the best school districts in Florida...hah! All they do in Florida is study for the FCAT. There is no computer program and no room for alot of other learning due to the need to teach to the test (FCAT). And frankly the private schools stink as well. We are moving out of this state because we care about our children's education.
A phenomenal school led by a great principal and teaching staff. Every teacher is dedicated to providing the best for our children. Unlike the other review I think the gifted program is beneficial to our school.
Dedicated administrative and professional staff. Clean, safe campus, consistently 'A' rated school. Strong parent involvement. Best elementary school in Palm Beach County.
Overall a very good school. Unfortunately like most FL schools their main focus is to 'teach' the students how to do well on the FCAT exam. Gifted program (this is a school district issue) should be replaced by enrichment classes.
