Eagles Landing is an excellent school. My eighth grade son has had wonderful teachers and an excellent education. I only wish their STEM magnet program was larger. I would have loved for him to have been in that. The administration is amazing and the school is clean and has a bright atmosphere.

an "A" school for the thirteenth year in a row in part because we provide a positive educational experience for our students and their families. Our goal is to create college and career ready learners by offering a wide range of academics and electives. ELMS has earned many awards for excellence in academics, music, robotics, athletics, and other important achievements such as Green School, PTSA involvement, and Reflections contests. We have a large gifted population, an Autistic Spectrum unit, ESE classes, and ELL classes. Our choice programs are expanding and include culinary arts and robotics/engineering. After school activities include numerous clubs, athletics, music, homework help, and organizations such as National Junior Honor Society. Many of our teachers have at least one masters degree, and several are certified as leaders in their field and/or National Board Certified. We encourage families to be involved in PTSA and the School Advisory Council. One goal for this year is to include more family nights like our hugely successful Family Reading Night. Eagles Landing continues to soar on the wings of excellence!

Phenomenal school that cares about its students and allows for students to excel and achieve great things. All of the teachers are very well educated and well versed about the subjects that they are teaching.

Very responsive to the needs of the children and parents alike. Any issue I may have had with a teacher or subject matter the administration - primarily Principal Chiapeta was extremely supportive and worked to make the situation better for my child. Extremely proactive.

This is a school that is shining example of what a school can do if they work together as a community. Students receive an outstanding education that is meant to prepare them for their future endeavors. The principal of this school in her second year has created an environment that allows the students and the faculty to flourish and achieve the very best.

This school is by FAR the worst school in Palm Beach County. NO. IN FLORIDA. I have never, EVER, been so disgusted by such a terrible enviornment, disgusting bathrooms, lunch, and the PEOPELE! Especially the teachers, they are so terrible. I would never want any of my children to have such a bad experience.


Posted September 19, 2011

We are in our last year at Eagles and really have nothing but great things to say. Both of my kids have had terrific test scores and the math program is amazing. We also highly recommend the band program. It provided my kids with a group of kids that are all kind and supportive. I am sad to have to leave and go on to high school.

I'm in 6th grade at Eagles Landing and ever since the first day of school I've felt welcome. My brother went to Eagles Landing 2 years ago. He had great teachers that I have know and don't have . For the next2 years I will have the best teachers i could get.

Unfortunately the principal isn't the boss, the clique is the real boss, absurd though it may seem. Consequently the students to be unprotected

Still wondering why my 6th grade child is doing the same level work as his 2nd grade cousin? Would like to see more interactive programs and field trips to make learning a positive experience for kids.

I think the school is very nice. My child is doing well in all but one class. The spec. Ed math is a very weak department. The head of the dept. is a very nice and caring person.

Sure, the teachers are pretty good, not the best, but okay. I think the biggest problem is the cliques, though.

Had two children graduate from Eagles and they both had very good experiences. Principal is very weak but there are strong fine teachers. Extracurricular teachers are both unfair and inept but my kids did theirs outside of school. Very much prepared for honor classes in high school except for Spanish.

Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
