I attended this school from 1953 - 1955 while in the 3rd and 4th grades. I still have fond memories of my time there and the teachers were very understanding and kind.

My son is in kindergarden. He loves to go to school. I am so happy, because he has learned so much. I did not know that at this age kids could learn so much. My son is already reading. My son has had a great year and this will help him threw out all the others. His teacher is great MS. Llanes. There are very little teachers like her. She not only teaches well but she has great patience and and cares for them. My son speaks greatly of her. This makes me have confidense in having him in this school. Thank you Ms.LLanes, never change you are wonderful. A parent that will never forget you and I Know my son will never forget you because to him you are his school angel. Lilliam

Me and my sisters went to Hialeah Elementary. It came natural to me to allow my kids to go there as well. My kids love their teachers and the staff members. Mrs. Web is one of the best staff members there, and I can say that the principal has done so much for that school. I have seen the changes through out the years. You can tell that she really cares. Keep up the good work!

Hialeah elementary is the best school in the universe. Mrs. Navieras is so dedicated, all the staff are knowledgable to willing to help. They visit homes that families are in need of help, my best friend past away a little over a year ago and her daughter, as well as, my two children attend hialeah elementary and the school pulled together for the 5 children (former students) that my friend left behind. Still after a year & 1/2 of her being gone & her daughter moving on to the middle school, they are still in touch and offer support in anyway they can. Mrs. Webb, mrs. Harris, the office staff, its a pleasure being a hialeah elementary parent. I would recommend this school! No doubt. Hialeah elementary-the best school in the universe.

I am the mother of a 6 yr. old boy in first grade. I can honestly say his teacher is very fair and understanding. She has a lot of patience and is willing to work with each and every student. I commend Mrs. Perez for her excellent teaching skills and for being so caring with her students. Good Job Mrs. Perez and Thank You!

I am the mother of a first grader, and I am very concern when it comes to safety; because the school has no organization what so ever; and no control over situations as when they are conducting an 'open house meeting' in the cafeteria, all the grades the same day. I am very happy that the school has new teachers, full of enthusiasm, I am very satisfied with my son's teacher, she is so good, when you look at her working you can tell she loves what she does 'Mrs. Lob'.

We need teachers who loves teaching kids. This school don't have that, very little teacher are willing to help the kids. This school need to improve in teacher and focus on helping the kids on a individually basic.

The FCAT 2.0 is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Florida. The FCAT 2.0 has 5 achievement levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 5 the highest. Florida considers scores of level 3 and higher to be on or above grade level. The goal is for all students to score at or above level 3.

Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
