I've had a good experience. Academically my kid is doing great! I have to say I get intimidated by the school's front office people. Their demeanor isn't friendly. I'm surprised this can fly when first impressions matter most. I'd say "add a smile", and parents will feel welcomed. The principal seems to care very much.

Great school, we did K thru 2nd grade... but too many kids, very rude office staff (be prepared) horrible car congestion at both drop off and pickup, good stuff too... lots of parental involvement, good principle, security like Fort Knox,

Fox Trail is absolutely amazing. We moved into the area a year ago and my husband and I, both having been employed in the administrative aspect of education, were a bit concerned as the school was so large. However, we have been more than impressed. Ms. Burgess, the principal, runs the school impeccably. The teachers are top notch and the atmosphere is that of a family. My friends in other states and counties, even those that home school, are absolutely amazed at how much my son has learned (thank you Ms. P and Ms. Stransky) I would recommend this school to anyone ... It is a true gem!

My kids have been attending Fox Trail since kindergarten and my daughter is now in 5th Grade with my son in second year of middle school. The school encourages parent participation, the Principal is second to none, the teachers and Staff are awesome.I can't imagine a better school forms kids to obtain their elementary education!

The teachers are great but the office staff is horrible. They are mean. cold, condescending, and just plain rude! They do nothing to help parents or students. Hire a new staff and this school will be great!

I have 3 children in this school (grades 2,3, and 5). Over all, the teachers are caring and willing to help. There are a few stand out teachers, that go above and beyond your expectations. The parking is an issue, as well as the pick up/drop off line. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because the front office staff are cold, there might be one person in there that ever cracks a smile. They are less than enthused to see anyone walk in and ask for anything. They do their job (most of the time) and nothing more. If you have a conference, forget getting there on time. They REFUSE to open that door until exactly 7:30, and sometimes later, even when they know there is a line of parents a mile long needing to get to a conference. If they fixed the front office, the school would get 5 stars no doubt.

Excellent school in all means. My son is in 5th grade now and is being at Fox Trail since kindergarten, he loves each of his teachers through the years, wonderful staff, great parent community and a challanging and appropiate curriculum. Just love it!

I certainly dont know what the teachers teach there but I hope they arent careless! When I first walked into the front office a student was talking major profanities! And such words made me drop my mouth wide open! Also the front office staff is quite cold and impatient. I felt really uncomfortable just being there.

Fox Trail is an excellent school. I have two children that attended there, and one that is currently attending. The teacher's are excellent and very fair in meeting each child's needs. It is a great and positive environment.

Fox Trail is an amazing school. My daughter is in third grade. I have only positive things to say about this school. The teachers my daughter has had since Kindergarten have been second to none. All of them have been able to taylor the curriculum to meet her needs. She tends to be top in her class but is not gifted. The teachers keep her challenged and she LOVES them! She can't even say which is her favorite teacher she has loved all of them. The principal cares about each student and is very approachable. We LOVE Fox Trail elementary. We moved to this area for the school and I will not move until both of my kids are through. My son will start next year.

I am very satisfied with this school, I was very hesitant to move my son from the private school where he was in, unfortunately they didn't have programs for gifted children, so I had to make a hard decision and after researching I found out that Fox Trail was a high rated school, now I know it is. I must say that the professionalism and expertise of his current teacher is more than comparable with the teachers at the private school. My son can day dream sometimes and his current teacher has been able to keep him focus by using his competitiveness to get him back on track, her strategies have paid off big time! The discipline and constant communication with the parents is a big plus! I am glad my son is in the right hands! He loves his new school!

My daughter is in first grade at Fox Trail Elementary. I am extremely happy with all aspects of this school. She is reading on a second grade level and is encouraged by her teachers. The PTSA is very involved in school events, and fundraising to make this school one of the top rated schools in the county. Technology at the school is very important. Every teacher has a prominthean board to present to their class via their computers. My daughter uses the computers in her classroom every day. I would like to say I am very happy my child attends Fox Trail.

My daughter attends Fox trail and had come out of a private Pre-K school. I moved specifically so my daughter could attend this school as she has five cousins and friends that attend as well. The teachers are caring and the facilities are second to none. School uniforms are mandatory and my daughter loves it.

My daugther is attending Fox Trail Elementary since Kindergarten (she is in 1st grade) I have to say there are a lot of teachers and staff there that are very nice and helpful , there are some that are not. I do love this school , taking out the parking hassle, there are limited parking space, I truly beleive the school should increase parking so parents can get out of the cars and walk their kids.

Our child is in 4th grade and has been at Fox Trail since Kindergarten. On a positive note, the school is clean, safe and well organized. The teachers are some of the best in Broward County and our child has loved every one! The science and math night, hoe-down and sock hop are great community events. On a negative note, annual fund raiser is a lesson in greed and exclusion and should be discontinued. The playground lacks shade and is too hot for the children to play on safely. The front office staff is cold and uncaring. And the administration is slow to provide gifted testing and individual learning plans for exceptional students. Overall we're satisfied with the school but hope it can be improved for our children who will begin next year.

I graduated from Fox Trail last year and I cried. I went there for 6 years and the school just made so easy to learn. If your child has Mrs. Wood for fifth grade, then he/she will become Very well prepared for middle school. I had her and with her, I learned so much that It will get me through all three years of middle school. your child could get into GEM with her, just like I did.

I find the staff not very friendly when you ask questions. When a child needs more attention in a subject, they get lost in the system even when I requested the help from the very beginning.

My daughter is in 4th grade and has attended Fox Trail since kindergarten. Overall the experience has been good. The curriculum though is based on preparing the children for the FCAT which doesn't allow for the teachers to be too creative but that is a state issue. Also, the front office staff can be a bit cold at times.

My son and I have been satisfied with the quality of his education at Fox Trail for the past 3 years. A little courtesy goes a long way and I have always found the staff helpful and kind. I am very pleased with the principal, who is always on campus, ready to talk to parents and approachable. She immediately responded with a phone call to a letter I directed to her regarding an issue I had with a staff member. I was quite satisfied with how she handled the matter, in a professional, courteous way.

Fox Trail Elementary is one of the best elementary schools that I have been in. The vast majority of teachers work extremely hard to make sure all of the students succeed. Parent support is outstanding and most of the children are well behaved and like to learn. I highly recommend this school and feel lucky to be associated with it.

Fox Trail is a wonderful school with a high level of parent involvement. The school encourages family involvement with activities such as Math Night, Science Night and partnerships with local businesses. Students are encouraged to take part in charitable works. Kindergartners are offered two weeks of free swimming lessons towards the end of the school year- a terrific idea given the number of pools, lakes, canals, etc. here in South Florida. An excellent school that deserves the highest of ratings!!

Well my daughter has been there for 3 years and she loves it however,she has complained about the teachers and I have tried to have talk to the teachers about these issues and I have found the teachers to be nasty and rude. I also think the the office staff is not friendly and when you call you never get call back. If you dont mind the rudness of the staff then you will like the school. I have no choice but to send her to this school due to the location where I am living. The principal should work a little harder teaching staff to be more customer friendly.

This is my daughter's third year at Fox Trail and she is thriving. Despite the school size, the administration, teachers and staff are approachable and helpful. My daughter has loved all three of her teachers who made her feel secure and comfortable while enforcing a structured and effective curriculum. We will stay with Fox Trail until she graduates 5th grade!

If you like huge, cold, impersonal, you will love this school. Bigger than any elementary school I have seen. But bigger isn't always better. Unless your kid is exceptional (good or bad), they will not be noticed. Administration is not friendly. Teachers vary greatly in quality, most being mediocre. The best one I found no longer works there- that should tell you something!

Academically speaking the teachers are superior and the children are good students, as they come from educated families, thus the FCAT scores fare better than the norm. However, there is a very high staff turn over rate, and Fox Trail Elementary does not support an open door policy. It has often been said, that Adminstrative staff has on several occassions. been reported by many families, as being rude, and unapproachable.
