This school is amazing. my kids are getting great education the security is great. all the students are protected in school grounds. they have great teachers who are willing to help the students succeed.
Is the first year of my daughter going to charter school and so far my daughter love's it and I her teacher she's so good with her and thats very important also the principal and all the teachers.
FORT LAUDERDALE DOWNTOWN CAMPUS - I first must preface that as a parent, I strongly feel that if one doesn't involve one's self regularly and consistently with one's child's teachers, principal and support staff, one shouldn't expect much from ANY school one's child attends. That said, I know by name almost every adult in the school my child is in contact with. My husband and I visit and volunteer over and above what is required by the school. The school has worked with my child, addressing my child's educational and behavioral issues very seriously and positively. Like any school, they sometimes are extremely busy, short-handed, short on supplies, overwhelmed by the FCAT prep/logistics/testing, addressing other concerned parents, juggling school events, etc. but even when I DON'T press, they continue to follow through for my child. The principal is very knowledgeable, wise and discerning when it comes to her school and her teachers. They work hard to be an A+ school overall, and they have done a fantastic team effort with my child and in addressing my concerns for my child as a parent.
My daughter started Kindergarten, so far I am very satisfied. My daughter has learned alot in addition to my wife and i reinforcing the lesson that my daughter learn in school. For those you are inquirig about middle school, Somerset Academy, an excellent charter school has a middle school and will give registration preference to children who are are leaving Charter School of Excellence to go into middle school. In addition, Florida Bible, has just annouced its has shut its door to after 34 years of private schooling due to budget constrait. Somerset will now be taking over the school.
This school is horrible they don't know-how to deal with over active or head strong kids they suspend and report parents to DCF because they don't have programs in place to handle kids with ADD or whatever. I wouldn't recommend this school to my worst enemy the principal is not polite and very unprofessional.
My son goes to Davie campus he just started this year. The pricipal Mr. Mishkin is great, wonderfull, & careing. He takes care of problems right away, He gets along with the kids great, He cares about the kids & whats going on. Mr. Mishkin is a really good principal. Most of the teachers are good, there are some that are to be disired. My son likes the school & most the people at the campus. My MAJOR CONCERN IS WERE ARE THE MIDDLE SCHOOLS FOR THE CHARTER SCHOOLS OF EXCELLENCE?
My son attends Tamarac Campus. Excellent ! Teacher and staff are great. My son is happy to attend the school , enjoys the class enviroment.
My son attends the Davie campus, this school does not have an auditorium, for parent to enjoy to see your childrens to receiving the reward/graulation ceremaonies. During cermonies you have to stand up til it's all over plus you can not hear what they are saying because of the noise levels!!!!! And also they do'nt have a library room, or music room (instruments for kids to learn music note.) The principal Ms.Guiliano does not have very good behaviour towards to the children. two thumbs down to the principal!!!!!!!!!!!!! :( my two sons are going to enroll to another school this fall 2010-2011!!!!!!!!! Highy not recommend this school!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My son attends the Davie Campus. the Teachers and staff are wonderful. Especially the teachers, they are caring and despite the system they have to work within, they try to individualize the instruction. My son loves his new school. We are looking forward to having his sister join him this year. My complaint would be with the current principal. She is aloof and not particularly helpful in solving problems or interacting with children. While the children all knew and liked Ms. Nessl and the previous principal (sorry , can't remember her name), they are afraid of Ms. Guiliano and will say ' I don't think she likes me'. this is simply because of her attitude and behaviour towards the children. I suggest you move her before the school gets a bad reputation or parents start moving their kids.
It is not the same at the one on Davie. The Charter School of Excellent at Davie is terrible. The teachers are mean and they do not respect the kids.
My daughter has a very good education by attending this school. The staff and students are very well mannered. I would not change my daughter's school for anything. Thank you charter school of excellence for giving my daughter the tools needed to exceed in life. Highly recommend this school!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My daughter just started 2nd Grade and loves the school. This being her 3rd year here I can say she is doing wonderfully. The staff have been execellent. She is progressing so fast sometimes I have to really wonder if she is really 7 years old. Thank you Charter School of Execellence.
It is a great school with great teachers and a wonderful Principal and staff. The principal he is very involved in knowing what's going on with students and parents. This is my child first year here at this school. And my child is doing a great job at Charter school of excellence.
My daughter attended this school for the first time this year as a 3rd grader. It is true what the other parents have stated about the school and principal, however; my experience is a little different. I really was not impressed with my daughter's teacher. For example, I never received any of my daughter's test papers, graded homework papers or communication from the teacher. I didn't know how my daughter was doing in school until report card time. I found this to be very frustrating and spoke to the principal about my expectations. She did follow-up with the teacher and things have gotten better. My daughter had a hard time adjusting to the curriculum coming from a private school and I felt like she was not getting the help she needed. As the school year is winding down, I'm having a hard time deciding if she will be attending next year.
My son is finishing 2nd grade soon and faces the FCAT's next year in 3rd. He has always been an honor roll student. This is a school where everyone cares about the student and how they do - the principal knows every student's name and most of the parents as well, the teachers take an interest in their students and what they are learning, and the school atmosphere is always positive and uplifting. All qualities I want my son to be surrounded by as he grows and learns.
My kids have gone here K-5 it is an exceptional school they where on A andA-B honor roll every year.The tearchers are great nurturing and caring it is an awesome school
The Core Knowledge Program that they use is great. My kid adapted easily to it and is responding even better than at her previous private schools.
