My son went to Kindergarten in the 2015 - 2016 school year. His teacher helped him every step of the way. This is, without a question, a very caring school. I have seen the office, to the Police Officer that works with the school all work extra hard to make it great. You can not find a better place to place your child for learning!

I have had two children attend Destin Elementry School. The teachers they were assigned are very good, pleasant and very accommodating to each students' needs. I only having good things to say about the outstanding teachers at this school. As with any other Florida public school, there is an overall academic emphasis on FCAT. As annoying as this is for teachers and parents, such is the Florida public school system. My biggest complaint is that the school obviously lacks funding. The facility is dated, there is not an indoor gym. Indoor gym is held in what can be best described as a multipurpose room. The music teacher was also cut this year because of budget problems. So the children are not receiving any formal music education. The only other mentionable criticism is that the school is located adjacent to a public park. This park is used by the students for gym and special outdoor events. However, because it is a public park, it is not gated off or secure during these times. I have always felt that this is a major security concern for the students.

I totally disagree with the post on April 27 2010. The principal is exellent! Very responsive and cares about the children above and beyond. We have a child that has a learning disability. She recieves everything she needs to succeed. We valso have two other children who experience the standard class enviroment. The teachers are the best. We consistently see them do the next right thing in educating our children.

Teachers have done a great job rating this school here. My child is in a class with thirty children and it's chaos! They learn more at home doing tons of homework. The school is overcrowded and all the principal cares about is FCAT testing and more money. After all the fences put up it looks like a prison. I'm not sure if its to keep them in or us out!

Cream of the crop when it comes to schools! Can't praise the staff enough! They all are caring, knowledgable, and challenge their students to excel in all they do. There is terrific communication between parents and teachers and the amount of parent involvement is phenomenal!

Destin Elementary is an absolute wonderful school. I have noticed a drastic improvment in my sons reading ability, and math knowledge. The teachers are wonderful and helpful, the Principal acknowledges everyone by name. The teachers are knowledgable, understanding, and go the extra step for the children. Destin Elementary is a great school, I would reccommend this school to anyone moving to Destin.

Wonderful school! Tremendous parent/teacher involvement. We were forced to relocate due to the military,and miss Destin Elem. greatly. The teachers are exceptional and genuinely care for their students.
