My grandson attend Citrus Cove since Kinder. I personally recommend the school. Safety and Security is very good. My only recommendation is that need to improve on the afternoon pick up of children's.
I have two children at Citrus Cove, both in the gifted program there and am more impressed with each year. Mrs. Green is a involved, fantastic prinicpal and strong administrator managing a team of amazing teachers, enthusiastic parents, and almost 1000 students. The PTA is dedicated and work with Mrs. Green to create spirit through their events. The office staff is helpful and friendly, knowing most parents on site and children by name. We love this school.
Very involved principal, friendly teachers and challenging curriculum. I've been pleased with my daughter's progress and how responsive people are to any issues or questions we have. I am especially pleased that the homework is reasonable and appropriate for the age group.
Great School, great teachers. great gifted program, great bus sytem, great parent teacher involvement. Great School, great teachers. great gifted program, great bus sytem, great parent teacher involvement.
My daughter go to Citrus Cove. She is in K1 and excel in education as well as social skills.
We just love this school. This is one of the best in Boynton Beach. My daughter feels it home because I try to make her feel home there. I am a very involved parent. I visit the school often, volunteer there few hours a month. I agree that there is very little parents involvement. I see what's going on there. It could be even better if parents would step up and be involved in their kids school. It's not just the school, teacher, principal and staff responsibility to give our kids a better education, parental involvement matters the most.
Wow! This school is a zoo! I have never in my life seen anything more unorganized. There are no buses so you have 900 cars pulling into a parking lot that holds maybe 50 cars. Parents (and anyone else off the street) are all through out the school to walk there children to classes with no security at all. Walking my children to class would be great if you can find a place to park. If not you are forced to let your child out of the car to fend for themselves. Its like dropping your 6 year old off at the zoo entrance telling them to go find the lions and don't talk to strangers. The car line takes over an hour to sit through! Parent involvement is literally unheard of. I have no idea why this school is rated a 9 unless its because they bus in kids that are in separate gifted classes. five kids are in my sons class for the 2nd time because they have repeated 3rd grade. At the "meet the teacher day" myself and one other mom showed up for it so goes to show how little parent involvement is.
This is a great school. Ever since Mrs. Green took over as principal, the school has focused more & more on learning. My daughter just graduated and I have a child now entering the 3rd grade so I've been here while Mrs Ashbury was in charge and now Mrs. Green. What a change!! The ratings from this school have gone up significantly ever since Mrs. Green became principal.
This is a wonderful school and I loved it, the teachers pushed you to your limits and students there are supportive.
THis is a great school. My daughter who had trouble reading has catch up and is doing great thanks to her teacher Ms.Lamont and Babione. I just wish they would accept my son even though we are out of zone. Our zoned school is Rolling Green and as Spanish speakers I would for my son to learn English the proper way as my daughter is learning at Citrus Cove.
I love this school and more importantly, so do my children! The teachers are the best!
Not only do I see hard working and dilligent educators working well past required hours, I see teachers who care about the academic and emotional needs of the students. I see all of this through the eyes of my children who are comforted when they are sad, encouraged when something has been hard, and caring enough to look out for their overall well being. My children LOVE going to school because of the teachers. If you can't see that - you're obviously not at this school often. This school is an A+!!!
Something is missing in this school. I think a parent has to feel that their children are in a nice environment when they go to school. And I feel that my son is just going to school and learning things, nothing more. Don't think the teachers care too much to understand the needs of most students. Mine just moved from another country. It's not easy for a kid to find new friends and fast. I am sure not all parents ask for help, I did and nothing happened. They are too busy thinking about the FCAT's.
It is wonderful to see that parents realize how much the teachers and staff have gone through this past year. We endured it all and did right by the children. This school has one of the hardest working and most dedicated staffs of any school ever! Please know that the reason the parent pick-up procedure was changed was because of a real concern for the safety of the children, not for our pleasure. It takes more time out of our planning time to be on duty out there, but the children are calmer and there is no one grabbing kids as we walk out with them. Yes, it might take you 5 minutes longer, but your child will not be run over in the process. Thanks to all of you have been cooperative and supportive!!!!
I believe what once was an "A" school is no longer. The teachers and staff do not care about the children's well being.
I have a child in 2nd grade and I am greatful he has such a wonderful and caring teacher. Ms.Lessne is one of the best teachers I have found and made my once struggling child into a child who comes home every night and wants to read!! The school overall is great and I can't wait for my other child to start kindergarten there in two years.
I like this school less and less. It has gone from being Parent friendly to anti parent. Afternoon pick up is a disaster and takes at least an hour for a routine that should take less than half of that. School administration/board decided to change the procedure without any meeting or input from the parents who are so adversely affected by the extra time, fuel and stress it takes us to tackle it now. I am very disappointed and angered that the school has done this.
The principal and vice principal have little to no concern for parents or parents opinions. Thier way or the highway.
The drop off and pick up at this school is a nightmare , be ready to get to te school a half hour in advance or more to drop of or pick up your child. They even told my kid to ge back in the car while I was trying to drop her off and move to a different location to drop her off. Very frustrating
