My son just completed 1st grade. He started the year at another school (I will not disclose the name) but according to Great Schools it received excellent reviews. Well, I can tell you Winstin Park is waaaay better. The staff is friendly, inviting, and the teachers actually care about their students' well being. The teachers do not have that feet-dragging, clock-in/ clock-out kind of energy that I have seen in other schools. I greatly appreciate this school and this review comes from a parent that went through boundary changes and has experienced more than one elementary school in just two years. Parents are friendly and involved. I just moved to the area and am so glad to have this school. I can't wait for my daughter to start!

Is a great school but now my daughter is in 5th. grade and her math teacher is really a bad teacher, she doesn't teach every page from the book and I have to teach and I have difficult with the language... and worst .. when the students take their test and they get a bad grade like D and the only one or two of them get a A grade.. she start yelling to the kids saying why don't understand, why don;t study... what do you think? What I suppose to do? complaint? with who?

It's not a bad school. Just be careful not to think it's an upper middle school because you think that it's an upper middle area. You will see a lot of rough students are bussed in and it draws from a foster home with some tough kids too. It can't be helped. Also the area not as good as you might think. Look carefully. You can't always judge a book by it's cover. It will depend on the teacher and you'll never ever see the principal. Never. I don't think parent involvement is encouraged either. But it's not an awful school.

Pick your school based on parental involvement not just the teacher. I used this site to come to our conclusions on where we wanted to move and saw that this school was a consistent high performer compared to other Broward schools but wasn't suspiciously perfect. I say suspicious because I actually think the drive for perfection is ripe for gaming the system...ie holding back kids with ESL, learning disabilities, behavior disorders rather than providing them with extra guidance in order to boost test scores per grade level. Winston Park seems to strive for a healthy balance where the faculty really care about the three way relationship between teacher, parent, and children. This is a good school because parents are given input and allowed to participate as a partnership with the teachers. A bad school never gives parents an opportunity to be informed or form an alliance with their kids teachers. I find it hard to imagine that such a school exists but many districts just have bad relations with parents/students because the families are primarily concerned with survival not education. This section of Coconut Creek is a upper middle income area. Education is a priority.

Winston Park has fabulous teachers. The one's my child has had are caring and want to see her succeed. The problem with Winston Park is the administration. The principal is rude. She talks down to parents and if opinions differ she raises her voice to get her point across. Your concerns will not be addressed.

Winston Park Elementary is giving my child the guidance she has needed. Though she is only in 2nd grade I could she her changing in a good direction. I am grateful to her first grade teach Mrs. Lustig who took the time and effort to support her and I with my daughter's reading skills. I also have to say that the Principal and the teachers are very friendly and caring. The PTA and volunteers make a difference in Winston Park Elementary. I would recommend WPE to anyone. It does help that this will be the 8th year they have scored A in the district.

It all comes down to the teacher, if the teacher is good, the school is great. Some teachers are more concerned about discipline than they are teaching. This may be a necessity with some children, but when this is the focus in the classroom the teaching lacks. There needs to be more of an 'open door' policy with all of the teachers at this school.

Overall my experience at Winston Park has been good. My main area of concern is the lack of communication between the teachers to the parents. Other then that my son's experience has been a good one. And he has a good teacher who does care about him.

For the most part Winston Park is a great school. I have a very bright child and I have had some difficulty with the staff. When I called regarding her reading test I was talked down to as if I did not know anything about school or my child. Other than that I feel the school is terrific. My daughter's current teacher is loving, understanding, fair, firm and really cares about the kids.

I think Winston Park Elementay is a great school. They have reading groups for the children that need reading help. They have a great music teacher who puts on a talent show each year. The only thing I can say negative is the FCAT testing, but that goes for every public school in Florida not just Winston Park.

My son had been in a Montessori-based private school for K-2nd, when a change in my job situation caused us to transfer him to Winston park, our local public elementary school. As he was working well ahead of grade level, as soon as the school year began, I initiated the application process to have him tested for the gifted program. It was not until January that the school tested him, then we had to wait another several weeks for the county to invite my husband and me to a panel meeting to discuss the results. Another 3 weeks later (in late March), he was finally transferred to the gifted class. The principal of the school knows how to 'say all the right things', but in the end does not seem to really care about parents' concerns. My son is now back at the Randazzo School, where he is thriving!

Winston Park is one of the best schools in the area. Parental involvement is high from PTA to parent teacher conferences to volunteer work. Music, art and computers are in abundance as well as teaching quality. My son was on the honor roll in this school every year. If the student doesnt understand a concept, the teachers work with the student to help them understand and work with the parents as well so the student gets the best learning environment. It is in a wonderful community and has parks nearby. It has two drop off areas so there arent too many traffic problems during pick up and drop off. The Office staff are always helpful and treat you like a neighbor.

The quality of academic programs given at this school is outstanding. The support and caring of the faculty makes this school feel like a wonderful place to be. The students are happy and excited. The faculty are caring and go above and beyond to help the children. The music program is exciting with many performances throughout the year. Parents are always willing to lend a helping hand. The classrooms have an open door policy allowing parents to volunteer and read with the kids.

My children have attended Winston Park Elementary throughout grades K-5 and the school has been a wonderful source of education and social development for both of my girls. The quality of teacher education is high and the school has programs to suit gifted or high achievers as well as pull-out programs for children who are struggling in certain subjects. They have a great art, music, and physical education program suited for a well-rounded child. The parents are actively involved with a strong and united PTA that provides support and fund raising activities to the school and community. It is a top-notch, A-rated environment that provides security and a sense of belonging for the children that attend.

WPE is a great public school. Although it is a large school there seems to be a real sense of family among the students and staff. The principal is a wonderful leader who runs a well run school with little nonsense. The AP is warm and caring and very visalble at the school always wiling to help. The staff is knowledgeable and takes great pride in teaching the minds of tomorrow.

Winston Park Elementary has been a wonderful experience for my son, my nephew and for myself. They have helped in my son and my nephews growth, education, and self-esteem. I appreciate all that the faculty and staff do everyday to maintain a calm and learning atmosphere. I believe that more parent involvement (and discipline) would definitely help in the staff and faculties ability to maintain this atmosphere for many years to come. I am hoping to be privileged enough to let my youngest children attend this school also.

This is a wonderful school. In the years that both my children have attended this school, they have recieved a quality education by teachers who are guenuniely interested in their students welfare. There is high parental involvement and I have found that both the principal and assistant principal very accessible. I would recommend this school to anyone coming into the area.

I have not rated higher due to the treatment my son has received. My son is ADD and the treatment he received from his teacher last year was horrible and nothing was ever done. They worried more about telling me everything my son did wrong instead of trying to help him improve. Luckily the teacher he has this year is a saint and we love her! The principal is also never available. I get tired of being dumped to her secretary or her assistant which is a waste of time.
