Clermont Elementary School 2

I have two children that attend school here and I honestly don't feel that the curriculum is up to par. My 3rd grader is bringing home spelling words that should be learned in first grade. I do not feel that they are being challenged enough academically and I believe that it will negatively impact them in the future. We are moving soon and I will be glad when they are enrolled at a different school.

My children have been attending this school since October of 2013 and I must say, I have seen a drastic improvement in their overall school performance and grades. My oldest child was struggling at her previous school and had been getting 'C's and even an occasional 'D'. My youngest was getting 'B's and 'C's. Over the last few months my oldest received all 'A's and 1 'B' and my youngest received straight 'A's. The teacher's are very involved and try and keep in contact with the parents to discuss any issues and to keep you informed of your child's progress, strong attributes, etc. I couldn't be any more proud to call Clermont Elementary our family's school!

My daughter went to Clermont Elementary school and she received a phenomenal education. She received all 4's and 5's on her FCATS and they are also a leader in assisting students with disabilities with accommodations. Ms. Caple runs a very family-friendly school but I feel the parent and child will get a lot more of their education as a whole if parents are involved. Involvement is key - especially in the elementary school phase of a child's life. I volunteered for activities, went to PTO meetings AND worked full-time in downtime Orlando. This is a wonderful school and even though my daughter is no longer there, I still miss it and think it prepared her for the honor student she still is todday.

We transferred to Clermont last year from another local school. Just by walking in fhe front office we knew we were at the right place. We feel that our children are getting what they need and more from their teachers, staff, Vice Principal and Principal. To comment on others stating that they don't stress on the arts, remember that teachers and school are required to meet certain goals and unfortunately there isn't always time for the art, music and language classes. We did love that our previous school had "specials" in art, music, instruments and language. For the amount of time in between when the class came around again in nine day rotation, it was hard for the children to progress quickly and retain. I am coming from music, arts & theatre background so it is important for our children to get a well rounded education including sports. The children at the previous school did not get the required amount of state mandated ruling for physical education. In fact some of the teachers were not giving recess or only allowing it only once a week. Physical education classes were part of the "specials" rotation so they were fudging numbers by counting the kids walking to class.
