This school is horrable both princaple and asst princaple never get back to you and my child is a strait A student the people at the front desk don't know what they are doing and are very rude but I guess that's what you get when you unprofessionals working at this school.
Crosspointe Elementary is a great school. My daughter who needs help with reading has a teacher, Mrs. Satin, who cares and wants to help her. She gave me great ideas and spent over a hour with me. Again I am luck that my daughter has a great teacher. So far, I have gone to 3 school events, each one has been great and its for the whole family to enjoy and spend time together. The teachers, staff all work so hard and it shows. Thank you for caring about the children and all the hard work you do to help them learn. Teachers are really trying to help the kids and do need their parents to also get involved. I feel Crosspointe Elementary should be receive the $5,000 because they are all great teachers, staff, etc.. I can't think of anything to improve they are so organized and everyday work so hard for the children. What else could any parent want. Thanks to all of you.
So far my daughter loves Crosspointe Elementary, every day she tells me something good about her day, which makes me happy as well. I am new to the area, and I plan on joining the PTA group
I absolutely love this school. The personal is very very nice, they are very nurturing and involved with the kids. They truly want to help your children succeed! They even give you suggestions, extra activities if you ask. `very happy with the school.
Crosspointe Elementary School has great potential and has shown positive increases in student performance. There like any other school, there are good and bad teachers, but for most the teachers are ok and administration is doing a fine job working with the many challenges of the eduational system today.
My daughter attended this school for the last three months of the 2008-2009 school year due to a move. I found that most of the school work consists of completing photocopied worksheets and the curriculum does not seem to contain many hands on or authentic learning experiences. Like another parent, I have also found that some of her classmates were extremely disrespectful or disruptive to the educational process. Being new, she was repeatedly harrassed by other students and little was done about it. If this is an A rated Florida school, it does not say much for the rating system. A school should be rated on more than one test score. I will be sending my daughter somewhere else this school year.
This school is horrible! the principal is not interested in what the parent has to say. If you say the wrong thing watch out she might call DCF on you! she has threated me withthis tactic several times this school year. I wish they would replace her. The free tutoring they were suspose to have was never given to my son who is constaly struggling in reading. I would transfer my kids if i had a way to get them to and from another school but at this time we are stuck. If you have a choice do not send your kid(s) to this school,
There is not enough extra curricular activities at this school. Also the teachers do not return voicemail messages. On more than one occasion, I was forced to leave messages on my daughter's teacher's voicemail but I am still waiting for even one callback. This new principal returns your phone call three days later. I will definitely move my daughter for the 2007-2008 year.
School is clean. Staff does not seem like they want to work there. The only thing your child will learn will learn in this school is how to pass the FCAT.
The morale of our school is very low. Quite a few teachers do not even enjoy going to work anymore. Previous years at our school were great. We have a new principal that is not very supportive of the staff or the children. Most teachers go to work early and/or stay late but feel very unappreciated by the principal. Our knowledge and experience were not respected. FCAT tutoring was not offered to our children until approx. two weeks before the test began. Our ELL students were not serviced for the first half of the year. We had so many unnecessary meetings to attend and paperwork to complete that time was taken away from our students. The school does not have enough extracurricular activities to offer the students, probably because the teachers are too drained from the extra work given to us that they do not want to take on another responsibility.
Mrs. Nina Cohen was my daughter's 3rd grade teacher in 2005. She was the best teacher I have ever seen. I wish my daughter would have her as her teacher for all the school years to come. An excellent teacher makes a difference on student performance!
My child is a 1st grader here. His kindergarten year was wonderful, mostly due to his teacher. I feel ok about this year so far, but we do plan to move him next year. The ratio in the classrooms is extremely unbalanced and they are not very willing to communicate with the parents.
We've had a mixed experience at this school. The principal is wonderful, but my child found that many of her classmates were disruptive and not interested in learning.
Great school ! Principal , staff and teachers, all working together to make our students the best they can be. I have a 5th grader and 1st grader at this school . Last year my , my child was struggling with the reading portion of the FCAT, thru tutoring and extra help from his teacher,myself and my husband, he recieved a 4 on that portion of the test. It was thru the dedication of his 4th grade teacher that made the difference. My Kindergartener was reading by the end of the school year. The fine arts dept.(art, music,computer,PE and Media) is the best, with teachers who are dedicated to bring out the talents of all our kids. Parent Involvement could be better, but we have a core group who keep things moving along, wish more parents would see what they're missing ! B school six points shy of an A !
This school was okay. The school was clean and well maintained. the dissapointment came when it was time to know about school activities. The communication between school and our family was poor. There were many instances of either no communication or misinformation. My children loved their teachers though my son was concerned with the level of his teacher's voice. There are both positives and negatives.
All the staff have made a great effort in the years 2004 and 2005. Mrs Ethel Mitchell and Isabel Smith were very motivating for my child. The school needs to offer more sports activities.
This school needs improvement. I just received a letter saying that they did not meet required 'level' and therefore I can transfer my son to a different school. The quality of programs are ok, like I said they need improvement. Art, PE, computers, and music is available but they don't offer anything else. There are a few parents that are 100% commited, but other than those 5, the rest dont really care. It's a pretty school on the outside, but everything else needs major improvement!
I think Crosspointe has many outstanding teachers and a great principal. I don't like that children were not allowed to have recess until after the FCATs were over, but I see that as more of a state-level issue than a problem with this school. my daughter is happy in her classes and we appreciate the diversity.
My son just started kindergarten and every time he has homework it's either not checked or has a date on there from ten years ago. I mean really is the teacher that overwelmed that they cannot revise the homeworks sheets. If so then maybe I need to place my son in private school.
