Horrible at best. Used to be good school but now terrible teachers and even worse parental involvement. Many renter's kids swear and start fights but staff will not follow up. Do yourself and your kids a favor ... Get them to a great school nearby like Collins or Summerfield.

We moved to FL from Ny this year and we were worried about the school system here. We have heard that academics weren't Florida's strong points. I have to say that we are nothing but pleased with this school and it's teachers.Her test scores show great improvement and I especially like the ELP after school program ( please keep this). My daughter is in 3rd grade and has Mrs. Pedraja and Mrs. Smith. Both are excellent teachers and we couldn't have gotten luckier with her first year's teachers. Keep up the great work!

Horrible. Administration is lazy at best, teachers roll eyes and complain right in front of kids and parents alike (I've witnessed this first hand) and there is a serious lack of parent involvement. The only positive thing about this school is that my child LOVED the art and music teachers. This school needs motivation and enthusiasm. If you don't have the drive and deep desire to TEACH children, you shouldn't be involved in an educational setting at all. This place seems like a bunch of people who are there just to collect a paycheck.

The principal and guidance counselor and my son's teacher are very uninvolved, even when I have approached them repeatedly for help. I have been less than impressed with the entire school system and will be taking my personal concerns to the school superintendent.

Teachers we have had are great , my daughter has made many friends and is always happy to go to school. The administration also seems very friendly and always made me feel welcomed. As a parent I can have some say in what teachers are chosen and my kid gets to see the benefits.

My son & daughter are new to Corr this year & I can't wait to get them out of there. My daughter's teacher is very kind & you can tell she enjoys what she does. My son's teachers are HORRIBLE. Even communicating with them has been a nightmare. I never see the Principal. I approached the guidance counselor about testing my son for gifted after our previous school counselor recommended it at the end of last yr & w/o knowing me or my son she said something along the lines of "he needs more responsibility at home". My son went from LOVING school to hating it. He used to have a book in his hands all the time & now I practically have to force him to do his nightly reading. Getting him to school & to do his hmwk is a daily battle. He does worksheets all day, it's monotonous to say the least. They just drill the fcat. There is alotted recess time each non PE day but unfortunately it is at the teacher's discretion whether or not they go outside and they NEVER do. I understand why he hates it. He is stuck at a desk all day everyday doing worksheets after coming from a great school with teachers that cared and a Principal that was ALWAYS visible before, during and at after school functions.

I am so happy Corr has finally started a 'Gifted Program.' They have found an outstanding teacher to teach this program. Mrs. Shaeffer has done such neat, fun stuff with my child. My child does not even know she is learning. She thinks it is so much fun. Corr has always been a great school, but with teachers like this it is now fabulous, to say the least. The principal is dynamite also.

I just was informed a few weeks ago that Mrs. Schafer, the new gifted teacher, has found my child qualified to be in her class. My child always loved school but now she is being challenged in math. I am thrilled Corr has got a gifted program.

Corr is a wonderful school and my daughter loves going everyday. The grounds are always kept very clean and the staff is awesome. There is a lot of pride from all staff members from principal to the janatoral team. This to me is important, everyone gets along. I can't say enough about the teachers they all seem to love the job they do and the children they teach. I am so very pleased and could not ask for a better school that my beloved daughter can experience the first few years of her education. THANK YOU CORR!!!!!!!!

This school has been wonderful. My son is in ESE class and from the first day to now he has changes 100%. Everyone has worded with me with my problems and with him. They have taken the time to help him. He is talking alot more and interacting a whole lot more. Everyone in that school deserves recognition for all the support and time they take with the kids to help them

We just found out the infamous Mrs. Schafer from Collins Elementary has moved to Corr. We are thrilled. She had my son in 3rd grade prior to us moving. I am praying she is going to be teaching 3rd grade and will have my daughter. Corr is a good school with an outstanding principal.

Corr is an excellent school. All the teachers are very exciting and have a love and passion to teach every child. All the staff is very eager to help with any problem you may have and come up with a solution not just a quick fix. They are also very good at noticing the kids that make good decisions and have great accomplishments. I love Corr and would not put my kids anywhere else.

This school is amazing. The staff is active and enthusiastic. The principal is very involved and supportive to staff and students. She has always made herself available to parents if needed. The school itself is very active in community events which is nice to see the suport from such a hard working staff and PTA as well.

I have two children attending Corr and they love this school. We have been involved since the doors opened. The teachers are amazing and my children feel safe. The office are always helpful and courteous. Ms. Hastings and Ms. Faerber are strong leaders and I truly appreciate the leadership they give this school. When parents get involved with their children school and work with the teachers, it makes a difference.

I have a child at this school. I chose this school at the advise of other parents. I drive several miles each morning to get there. My child is having a great time.....learning academics, making friends and feels good about himself. As a single parent this has been the best decision I have ever made for my child. Thank You Corr

Corr Elementary has a strong and knowledgeable leader as pricipal. The district should put her in a postion to train other principals as she has it all together. Mrs. Hastings has an excellent relationship with parents, students, teachers and the community. There is nothing she would ask others to do that she would not do herself. If I had a child in elementary school I would drive many miles to have my child atted the school with Mrs. Hastings as the leader. There is no better!

My daughter has attended Corr since opening year. Corr has come a long way and I'm proud to support the school and the hard work of the staff. Every year, she has incredible teachers that go above and beyond to challenge her. She is a straight A student on Principal's Honor Roll! I would like to see more parent involvement....the parents that complain about the way things are should get involved and make a difference. Set an example for your child!

My husband is in the military and we have had experience in many schools. Without doubt, Corr is the worst we've ever come across. It is unorganized and the principal has a care less attitude. I will say that some of the teachers do try, but the overall experience at Corr has been very bad.

My two sons have attended Corr their entire schooling expereience thus far. My youngest was in the ELP class, and I truly believe that Mrs.Fritz and Mrs.B helped him beyond their call of duty. The school is always clean, and the teachers always eager to have you come in and to visit your child. I believe any student that 'hates' the school, is most likely the problem at hand...that- and the parents who enable them. Corr rocks!

Principal leadership is the best! I believe that if we as parents cooperate instead of complain we will really help our children. After all that's what matters. Ms. Hastings truly cares about all of the students and treat them fairly. Strong, of course she have to be strong, otherwise other people will run the school and that will be chaotic. Your leadership is at home folks. Some of them are very disrespectful to our teachers. Teachers and Administration at Corr Elem do the best they can and they do it with love and much pride. Corr Elementary is the best school that my child ever attended. Keep up the good job!

My son was in the Early steps program and after turning 3 joined Ms. Fritz at Corr Elementary. That was last year and he is still going there. Violence at this school? I visit almost every other day and I haven't seen any of this(this includes lunch at the cafeteria). School is always clean and children are always walking in line, following their teachers.The school grading thing is a double edge sword because sometimes it doesnt reflect the school at all, Parents need to realize they also need to sit down with their children at study AT HOME. If there is no educational reinforcement from Home,Schools will not fare well. I love the school, and I appreciate the work of Ms Fritz and Ms Bianchi(speech therapist at the school), I can see the improvement on my son everyday thanks to their dedication.

My children have attended this school since it opened and I have never heard any negative comments from them. I have attended many awards ceremonies, etc. and find them to be organized and the principal is always present. The front office staff is kind and willing to help with anything. I wouldn't continue to have my children attend this school if I felt they were not getting a good education. There is always room for improvement.

My son attended Corr for first and second grade. Second grade was a pretty bad experience. He was put in an 'experimental' classroom with three rotating teachers and 52 students total. He had a terrible time learning to read, and we ended up having to have him tutored in reading. Otherwise, I actually think his teachers would have failed him. He's now in third grade, at a different school, and on the honor roll. Also, the principal at Corr always seemed cold and aloof to me.
