Fort Caroline really needs to promote its IB program better if they want to attract better students. Take a look at their web site - it barely mentions the IB program! I believe it has great potential with this new program, if they'd only push it more. Take a look at how Julia Landon completely turned itself around after becoming a college prep magnet. It can be done. The difference is promoting the program.

As a parent of three children who have traveled through the halls of Ft. Caroline, I see tremendous improvement in the climatee, atmosphere, and instruction at the Ft. since becomming an IB magnet school. The referral rate reported to the PTA/SAC has dropped in half since the new Principal came on board and the uniforms keep unauthorized people out. Every day the climate seems to improve and my youngest daughter comes home frequently speaking with great enthusiam about the exciting, challenging lessons she is doing in her classes. I think Ft. Caroline is moving up and I am happy to see the improvement.

I have been going to this school for 2 years now. I started out the first year when it turned into an IB school. I seriously do not like this school. If someone gets bullied you can never count on most of the teachers to stop it. There are a select few of teachers that actually care about our education and not just about there salary.

Fort Caroline Middle School provides students with a safe learning environment, and the school has thrived in showing it. At Fort Caroline, teachers encourage students to work and succeed at their goals. For the three years I went to the school I watched the school continue to improve. My last year attending Fort Caroline, it turned into an International Baccalaureate School, and the school has continued to succeed throughout the years. I loved the learning experience there, and this has prepared me for Paxon SAS. Thank you to all the wonderful and supporting teachers and staff members. -Avery G.

I have 2 children that attend Ft Caroline Middle School, and I am DESPERATE to get them out of there. There is nothing but fighting, both at the school and at the bus stops. The teachers, save a select few are more interested in the gossip about each other and the kids, than the future of these kids. They force kids to wear uniforms, however do nothing when students destroy other students clothing by pushing them down, or putting gum on their seats. Both of my children are failing since arriving at the school, which we have never had a problem with, and this is a great concern. I think that all the teachers need to be removed from this school as well as the principals, and that we need to have new persons teaching the children, or they need to shut this school down.

This school is a huge disappointment to the community it serves. Fort Caroline lacks the ability to offer its students a safe environment and ethical, competent leaders. The Principle, Assistant Principles and Teachers are more concerned about their own agendas than improving the quality of education and environment for the youths attending this poor excuse for a school. If you are a parent that cares about your child's academic success do not enroll them at Fort Caroline Middle.

We move to Jacksonville, Fl from North, 6 months ago. So far i havent had good experience with the schools here in Jacskonville. My daughter went to Ft Caroline last year for about two months, the girls there was so cruel to her. The teachers stand around and gossip all day about other teachers and students. There are way too many fights for a school to have. The students who wish to fight should be expelled and not allowed to come back to the school. I think the discpline policy should be stricker to gare the students from fighting. We never expierence an educational building , to be a war zone. I have a daughter attenting there now and is moving just to get her in a less Hostile School so she can focus on learning.

This school isn't that bad. I like the my son's teachers but it is so dirty. They need better janitors because this school has to be the dirtiest but if they were cleaner it would be my number 1 choice for other parents.

I think people have some preconcieved notions about FCM because of its location. It used to be just ok, but I think now it's a lot better. The teachers are very concerned about student success. There is daily after school help for homework, if your child is motivated enough to get help. If your kid doesn't want to learn, it's not the school's fault. If you don't like things about the school, get involved in the PTA. Remember you are the example for your kids; if you just sit back and expect something for nothing, so will your children.

Fort caroline middle school is the best school i have ever been too...i have been to 3 different school and FC is the best. I dont know why people think its a bad school because it is not. This school rules...this is my 3 and last year here. I love my teachers, the teachers will help you and give you only to help you get your grades up, and to all you parents who think its the schools fault for grades lowering...take that out on your kids not the school because i have been and A,B honor roll student all 3 years so its not the teachers or school....its your kids...but anyways i love this school and i will miss it next year.... submitted by Kaleigh

This school is the best I have ever have ever been to. No other middle school can top this one. The teachers are great and you meet a lot of people from different nationalities because this school has the ESOL program. I was in the ESOL program myself. In conclusion, this the best school ever!!!!!!

I read the other parents review, and most of them told me they have no idea and never attend or visit the school. My child got coputer training was in volved in a NASA Program involving the shuttle launch that took 2 years before she was allowed to run the program. I saw students building computers that they could take home. Their teachher told me that if I could not afford internet service he had a program to get dial up paid for ffor a year. My daughter wants to be at school every morning by 7:30 am ( school starts around 9:00 am) and wants to stay after school. She is on the Dolphin Team and can not get enough of whatt they are doing. I kept her ouut of a magnet school because of her teachers and I'm glad I did. You get what you want in public school.

Janitors dont keep the school 'tidy'. The girls locker rooms are always dirty and never swept. Acedemics are not very high and the coaches for sports do not put enough effort into pushing the students to win.

I was scared to send my kids to this school also. I heard so many bad things, but my kids have thrived here. There team of teachers are wonderful. I did not choose their teachers. Sometimes we get out of a school what we put into a school. If we are not part of the solution we are part of the problem. Get involved. Be the parent that helps change things. I really like Ft Caroline Middle School.

Sadly the ones at this school that do care about the kids aren't the ones who are around them on a daily basis. They aren't the ones teaching or disciplining them. I agree that children do fall through the cracks at this school. Parent involvment is the key and even then it may not be enough. The teachers need more training, not in academics, in children. They need to understand children better, individualize their work ect. by their personal needs. This would be alot easier for them if they didn't have such large classrooms. Meanwhile if the student can get past the first 15-30 minutes or more of their teacher trying to get ahold on their classroom and don't need the lost time in instruction they might be alright. But for those who need the lost time in class they have no hope of getting a fair education.

Ft. Caroline middle has got to be one of the worst schools in jacksonville. The students are wild and uncontrolled, the teachers have the worst-i don't care attitutde of any school my son has ever attended. To me it is borderline one of those inner city schools you see on movies. I have enrolled my son in a magnet school for next year. He will have to ride the bus for almost an hour to get there but it is all worth it in my eyes. His grades a bad (he has always been an honor roll student until ft. Caroline) and he is bulleyed and scared of the gangster kids who run crazy at this school. Take a hard look---these are our tax dollars at work---!~!!
