This school is ok. Yes it's small, yes it's catholic, yes you have to pay to send your children there, but no it is not top-notch. This school uses book from over 5 years ago, has little to no technology anywhere in the school, no smartboards, no classroom computers. The children still take naps in kindergarten and spend a lot of days having early release or days off preparing for fundraising events or in church as part of the school days lessons. Unfortunately ignorance can be bliss, so if you don't know any better, you think because you pay for it, you are getting a great education. I took my child to Aventura Waterways and he is thriving, but only after remediation for the time lost at this school.

We are so glad we found this school. The teachers are caring and go out of their way to make sure all children are educated to their full potential. I was impressed when I asked the teacher if I could supplement my child's education with additional worksheets as she tends to finish quickly and get bored, the teacher responded with, "Of course, but if I can't keep your child challenged I am not doing my job." What a refreshing attitude compared to the school my daughter attended last year. This year there are only 24 children in my daughter's class and 2 assistants. She gets the attention she needs as a very precocious child and at the same time does not feel singled out. I am grateful for this school and the faith based education. The parents are wonderful and very involved. This school is for the children. God Bless Little Flower.

My children have been students at Little Flower Catholic School for the past three years, and we couldn't be happier with the education they are receiving. The teachers are top-notch and really care about every one of their students. Little Flower is not just a great school, it is a community. The parents and even grandparents volunteer in the church and at the various school fundraising events. Little Flower's tuition is one of the least expensive tuition rates that I have seen for any Catholic or private school in the area. Our once "small" school has grown to over 290 students from Pre-K though 8th Grade. It is wonderful to have so many new students at Little Flower, but some of the class sizes are too large. Although Little Flower does not like to brag or boast about their achievements, their test scores are higher in certain grades than other Catholic schools in South Florida. They also offer many extra-curricular activities like band, choir, art club, "The Leopard Print" newspaper, service club, athletics, etc. I highly recommend Little Flower Catholic School and am proud to be a Little Flower parent.

Little Flower is a nice small catholic school. A little old fashioned with flair of Europe. Kids are well educated and teachers have excellent credentials. LF is an excellent choice alternative to public education.

Overall Little Flower is an excellent choice for our daughter. Teacher in first grade is excellent, strict yet fair. Good extra curriculum (vocabulary enrichment, music, sports, computer, Spanish Spanish could be much stronger! Even free tutoring for challenging kids). Parents are involved, nice and educate their kids! We have been welcome right away. The school is small and family orientated. Kids are trained to have manners and to think of others. At Little Flower you re not just a name on a piece of paper. People know you and care for you.

this school is not the best choise because the teachers are not good. one teacher was suspended for saying the grades of one student out loud, and there is a new english teacher that is not very good. yes the parents and teachers are very close but the education which is very important is not good!

Disapointed by the lack of concern for the kids, once a teacher decides that they need to be correct. Our childern are suffering because of a lack of attention directly associated with bitterness from one teacher. We are a like a lot of other parents that feel bound by the school because its the only safe alternate in this area. I'm sure some teachers agree that the school could use a different direction in the aproach of school harmony.

Although doubtful about a small school, and the resources it can offer, Little Flower Sschool has turned out to be a better option than any other public, and charter schools in the area. Another catholic school, Nativity, boasts of how great they are in comparison to Little Flower, however, from personal experience, they have bery little to offer as far as flexibility to help students attend the school, and their lack of a humble spirit only promotes rilvary which should not exists among Christians. Little flower's director, so far has been most humbled, never uttered an ill comment about Nativity, and is involved as best possible in helping students and parents alike. Kudos for the great family environment in the school!

Little Flower School was the best thing that ever happened to my son. It is small, but he got individual attention and it was a real boost to his self esteem.

Little Flower is a big 'little' school with involved parents and teachers. My children have been there for 3 years and I am very pleased with their academic and extra-curricular programs. The children are getting an excellent faith based education and I also compare their curriculum with my friends in the neighboring schools and find LF lacks for nothing and tends to exceed.

This is a very very small school. There are very few students in each grade. That can be good but its mostly bad. This school is below average. On the other hand Parents are extremely involved.

My overall first impression was doubtful - as it turned out I was correct. With less than three weeks into the school year the teacher claimed to know when a student is not capable of substaning a passing grade, although all indications of work performance was average at worst. The school principal's short sightness let to my de-enrollment of my child from the school. The child's self-confidence was virtually destroyed and now is processing his abilities at the new school - 'Nativity Catholic School'. For a small size school, Little Flower's administration needs re-tooling.

My children have been attending Little Flower Catholic School for a long while and I feel that my children are getting a good education in a great/safe environment. The school is small which is good and bad. Everyone knows my kids and the kids know it! They always act respectful while there. I feel that if they could have a few more team sports/clubs it would benefit the children greatly because not every child fits into the limited activities they offer. I know my kids are well cared for and feel like they belong to a community of a great staff and great families. Parents are extremely involved as they are required to volunteer a certain amount of hours per year. It helps to build that sense of community and lets the kids know they are important and that we care about their education.

This school is a very good small parish school. This school goes from Pre-K to 8th grade. At this time there is one class per grade (so if you don't like the teacher you're out of luck). However, the majority of the teachers are dedicated to the students and very good teachers. The school offers music, art, cheerleading, baseball and other activities. Every year there is a talent show, a fashion show and different theme dinners at the school such as 'Italian night'. The parents are highly involved because all families must do a certain amount of volunteer hours in the school (which I think is fantastic). It gets the parents involved and they get to know the other students and teachers. The office administrator knows all the kids' names and is helpful and cheerful. The kids go to mass once a month and for celebrations. Overall, a good school.
