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
Superb family climte, excellent administration, solid staff and beautiful campus.
My daughter attended Citrus Cove 3 years ago and she was on the Panther cheer squad. It was the best experience ever for her. We have since moved to Georgia and even the high school cheerleaders can not compete with the level that the Citrus Cove cheerleaders are on. And yes, we loved her teachers and never had a problem with the education.
I am a parent of a child who attends Citrus Cove and I have to say that I am pleased with the quality of teaching and the safety of the students. I will miss Citrus Cove next year as my child will be attending her first year of middle school.
So far my daughter has been at Citrus Cove for 2 years. I am very pleased with the teachers and office staff. They have an awesome cheerleading squad and many different after school activities. I would highly recommend this school for anyone's kids.
My son was in Kindergarten at this school last year. It was a great experience. His teacher was, Mrs. Austino. she was the greatest teacher ever, she actually brought in her own piano, so that the kids could have live music daily. She a wonderful, caring teacher. She recommended my son for the gifted program for 1st grade. I hope this year will be a great year, just like last year.
I tryly believe this is a great school, my daughter is in second grade and have been here since kidergarden. The teachers are great, their extracurricular activities are exceptional (summercamp, cheerleading, clubs, girl scouts, etc.) the office staff is extremely helpful (they always go above and beyond for everyone), the school overall is an A+ there is nothing bad to say about them. I even know parent that move to the area just to get their kids in this school. It's simply a great school. Oh and I can't forget their ESOL program, the teacher is very dedicated and helpfull. Specials regards to Mrs. Catina, from Kindergarden and Mrs. Correa form 1st grade, thanks much for all your help and exceptional work with all the kids. A very greatful parent, JH
I would highly recommend this school to everyone. My son attended this school for 6 years and had a very good quality of education. My daughter is also still attending the school and has done very well with the help of the teachers and teachers aides. I along with another parent that wrote in about the OUT2 program that Mrs. Leventhal used was a great help as I was a working parent at that time. This should be implimented by the school for all teachers to use, as a guide for parents in regards to homework assignments and upcoming tests. I would also like to commend Mrs. Gallego for how see gets the kids motivated in getting their work done. I enjoyed the 4 months that I spent volunteering in her classroom along with helping out anywhere I could in the school, well worth the time.
My daughter has been going to this school since kindergarten. I love the teacher and the school administration. I feel this school is the tops.
