My son has attended this school since he was a kindergartener. He will be going into 3 grade this fall. It is an old school...the neighborhood is not too attractive and neither is the outside of the building...it lacks pretty landscaping and, as the older schools have, it lacks windows. The inside is attractive...with much artwork displayed and beautiful murals on the wall. The office staff is generally helpful and friendly and they do have a full time nurse in the clinic...which is comforting. However I feel that they have a rather old fashioned attitude towards education...the staff seems to stick up for each other and not the children and parents quite as much. There are many teachers there who have been there many years and are (and always were) a bit crabby and tend to yell at the children. Overall, I am not terribly happy with the school.
I have nothing but GREAT things to say about this school. The teachers have challenged my son to work his hardest and do his best. Mr. Gruber (5th grade teacher) is really making an impact on his studying skills and we are very impressed with his 'wanting to know the answers' attitude. A teacher can make a lifelong impact on a childs life and we are happy that FHE has given our son a positive outlook! www.fhebroward.com
