This school is amazing my child was in that school since 4th grade because we had to move away so she didn't finish 5th grade. Anyways this school is the best school, it might say it's a 4 but I grade it a 10. The school has 1 teacher who teaches every single thing and the kids have fun in the school. They have a lot of fun and learning events in that school. My child loves that school, when she heard that we had to move she cried a lot because she was going to really miss this school. That's all I can say, by!!
This school is wonderful! Dedicated and loving teachers who make my son love coming to school. My daughter is in middle school and was very prepared after going to Patriot. I think they have high expectations and push kids to work hard, many reviewers may not want that, but personally, I want my kids challenged so they are prepared for college.
We are new to the area and were placed at Patriot Elementary by the strange system Lee County uses. What a pleasant surprise we got. My children love this school and the teachers! They are constantly coming home sharing how much is done at school. They are happy and thriving! What more could a parent ask for.
This school received a C rating but they should have received a D if it weren't for the new school law that a school can only drop one letter at a time. They were a B so the most they could fall to was a C. But make no mistake about it, they are really a D. How did this happen? What is going on with this school? Some answers need to be given.
Consistently low FCAT scores, as per the State. Some great teachers, some horrific ones. The new principal is all smoke and mirrors. He is more concerned with appearance than substance. He's best at taking pictures. Also, he lacks core values, including honesty, respect, and integrity. His disrespect for teachers and parents is sad. There are much, much better schools nearby, including Gulf and Trafalgar, and the Charter Schools. Stay away from this one! Your kids deserve much better. Just compare FCAT scores. It's day and night.
I am a parent of 4 kids, 3 of which I was able to send to Patriot. I have experienced Charter schools, private schools, and this public school. I can honestly say any negative reviews should be thrown out. It is an amazingly organized staff and school with caring teachers. This school is a 10 in my book; my kids are educated, safe, and loved when I in entrust my kids over to them! We have a new principal this year which will continue to lead the school to success. The other principal will be missed, but I had more contact with the Assistant principal last year which I found an amazing woman with a big heart for kids. She knew my kids and my kids knew her which meant a lot. This years principal has already got the year off right and makes his face known to the children and parents. I appreciate that! This is an A+ school in my grade book! The many parents I have talked with that have their children there and love it should be writing reviews as well. I hope they do, because this school deserves it!
Super happy with teachers and school environment! My daughter is in third grade and loves her teacher. She is reading two grade levels above where she started. I can't say enough nice things about Patriot!
Was not happy with this school and would not recommend it due to the principal. Office staff is nice and most of the teachers are nice, but unfortunately, the principal makes everyone always on edge and does not seem to welcome any fun or happiness in her school that it affects all the teachers and staff.
