Tradewinds is a good school. My son has attended since kindegarten. I have had problems with individual teachers on occasion, and I have not found the principal very receptive to constructive criticism. However, I have also had experience in other schools. I find that the curriculum is above average at Tradewinds, and the teachers are as well. The lunch menu could use improvement. and the lunch personnel are not always civil to the students. Still, in comparison to many other schools Tradewinds is superior. The office staff is always ready and willing to help. The nurse has always been very kind and approachable. The library and video areas are very nice. The school functions and field trips are numerous and engaging. Overall, Tradewinds is a nice school.
My triplets have been going to Tradewinds since they were 3 years old! Tradewinds has a PLACE program for children that experience delays in development. My three were speech delayed. I can't say enough about this school! All the faculty and staff have been amazing! They truly care about the students and they are always available to help. My three are now all in the second grade and doing well. If I wasn't moving, I would never want them to leave this school!
I had thought this was a good school now I am not sure. My son is just about to start 2nd grade and they have no calssroom for him. He (and 20 others) are out in a *portable* without indoor plumbing and no covered walkway to the school. How will 20 second graders go back and forth to the bathroom all day (rains everyday in Florida) when they need to walk over to the main building? This situation is unacceptable and I am exploring private school options as well as now getting involved to know what the procedure is for escalating a complaint.
