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.
I am not sure how Fox Trail only has a Four Star Rating as I give our school 5+. From the Principals Office, Office Staff, Teachers, Cafe Staff, PTSA and parent volunteers our experience has been phenomenal over the years from Kindergarten to Fifth Grade.
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.
Fox Trail is a Great School, my daugther is very happy there, they are very well organized. My daughter is in 3rd grade and she is learning everything very well.
My son went there in Kindergarten for the yr. of 06-07 and had Miss Leung. She was a wonderful teacher. We only have wonderful things to say about Fox Trail!! We moved after his first year and we miss this school a lot!
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!
I have three children and they have and are still going to Fox Trail Elementary. It is a great school with highly qualified and caring teachers.
Fox Trail Elementary is an excellent school My grandson is in second grade and has been in this school since kindergarten. All his teachers and those I have met there are superb. I am happy he is in this highly rated elementary 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.
