The previous comment makes me laugh. Some people need to look at themselves and realize that if they continue to have the same problems maybe it's not everyone else's fault! This is an amazing school that we consider our hidden gem in Englewood. Amazing staff, families, and community support! I could go on forever about how lucky we feel to be a part of it. Teachers take special interest in students and principal is approachable and actively involved in every area. We love EES!

My twins were students at this school for three years starting in the third grade. The first year was good but the second and third year my girls were bullied by students and mistreated by teachers. I brought to the attention of their teachers, nothing was done, I brought to the attention of the principal who told me ( after I told him it was getting to the point where my wife and I were considering pulling the girls out of the school ) he would personally take care of it but nothing was done ! Beware of this school, a wolf in sheep's clothing, unless you want your kids to attend a school where the kids bully and the teachers make you sit in the back of the class if you don't know the answers or they refuse to help you on a computer project for graduation just because you missed days from being sick !!!!! We are now trying to reverse the damage caused by this school with counseling. Shame on you Englewood elementary, shame on you, they are more worried about raising money for what ever when they should be taking care of bullies and teachers that are counting the days until summer break !!!

Englewood Elementary is a caring community. The feeling of family is abundant here. From the weekly reading night event which includes a barbecue to the mileage club where families do laps around the PE field. The teachers are outstanding and the principal is approachable and efficient. You feel at home here.

I just left this amazing school. I'm going to middle school now. But this school will always bring back great memories. It will forever and always remind me of my amazing, smart, and incredible teachers, my awesome, generous, and helpful friends, and my cool, nice, FUN, and caring principal. I LOVE this school and will surely miss it. But at least I believe I left my mark there. I won't forget them, and I hope they won't forget me. :) -Harley

Pros: Energetic, involved principal. Open campus that welcomes and encourages family involvement. Great after-care program. Some good teachers. Nice outdoor facilities. Friendly office staff (except the registrar!). Wonderful "specials" teachers. Cons: Old school in need of a renovation. Some experienced teachers are burned out. Taking away recess as a punishment should be banned as it is in so many other states; kids that are getting into trouble are precisely the ones that NEED that time to get their excess energy out. Make them clean something instead of taking away recess! Children that are gifted get no extra help in the early years and are bored out of their mind. If you have a child you think is gifted, fight for them! They need just as much help as a child with a disability! Florida curriculum in general focuses too much on "no child left behind", and the ones who will be leading our country in the future, are really the ones who are left behind. Meaning bored and learning nothing.

I would never recommend this school to any parent. The children are required to do heavy amounts of work at home even on holiday vacations. I am so thankful I pulled my son out and dis-enrolled him. The class sizes are large, and the grading system is poor. I will give them credit for computer technology in the class room though. Thank God for school choice.

Best teachers, Great open campus that allows parents to brings students all the way into classroom. Teacher / student ratio good. School gets parent involvement and test scores are highest in the area.

This school excels on every level! The principal Is extremely approachable and very appreciative of parent involvement. This is a small school with a home-town community atmosphere. It has many extracurricular activities, including a weekly family night that promotes family exercise and reading together. EES is a fantastic school with amazing educators. We couldn t be happier!

I am a parent of a student and I have to say that I am very pleased with the individual attention that each student has. Our son is a recent transfer from a private school. With this transition I was concerned that he would not be engaged, but just the opposite. This year the school started a program called Eagle Academy. The premise is to challenge each group based on learning ability so that each student learns at a more progressive pace. The kids seem to love it and I cannot believe how well my son is doing. I say 'Good Job' to the teachers and Principal for thinking outside the box. I wish more educators would exercise their combined experience instead of embracing the norm that has not been working for years. Our kids deserve the best education delivered in a manner that they respond to.

I am a new parent that trasferred from another county in Florida. I am very unhappy with the academic program in place at this school. The children (k-5) are switching classrooms for every subject area, like middle and high school students. It is very confusing for parent communication and for the student. My student is unable to complete assignments in class, and those assignments are being sent home in addition to homework. Too much academic time is wasted with all this switching. I never had this problem in the past in our former school district. The whole idea is insane. Go to the school and see the plan in action before you make the choice to buy a home in this area!

Englewood Elementary School is WONDERFUL!!!..I would recommend to any parent. I have a 2nd and 4th grader each has gone here since kindergarten. The teachers are caring, helpful and want your child to succeed. I have never had any problems with questions or concerns I had being addressed. My children love this school and any child is truly lucky to be a part of it. We live in a beautiful community topped off w/ great education.

This school is terrific in every way. I have a Kindergartner and a 2nd grader. Both have learned a great deal more than the school we moved from. The teachers are fantastic. Caring, communicative, go out of their way to ensure your child's success. There are family reading nights and other fun school activities where parents can get involved. We have to move and I dread having to send my children anywhere else.

My son was ready for middle school with his Englewood Elementary preparation. Another son is enjoying his experiences,too. I would recommend EES to you and yours.
