TEACHERS ARE PROFESSIONAL AND LOVE THEIR JOBS OF EDUCATING STUDENTS! ACADEMICS ARE WAY AHEAD OF THE NORM! DEFINITELY AN "A" RATED SCHOOL!

Moved here from out of state, this is NOT an "A" school principal doesn't return calls, my child is redoing lessons from the beginning of the school year at his old school because Mandarin Oaks is so behind the curve, there's no daily homework???? & my child was punched in the stomach on the bus. Maybe this is a "A" school in Florida, but not compared to the rest of the country.

They don't focus on individual students. If the child is struggling to keep up, they'd let child drown instead of searching for alternatives or reaching out to the parent. School is overrated!

This is a wonderful school. High focus on quality education and FCAT. This school is well run by great educators. Teachers are focused instructors. True teachers at this school. This school is diverse and has a safe learning environment. Parent involvement is strong at mandarin oaks. This school is a model for cutting edge education.

Love this school, upon moving to Jax I did a lot of research on the Elementary's before selecting a neighborhood to move to, and I have not regretted it. The teachers and staff are great.

This school is the best school in Duval County as far as elementary schools go. I had the best experience at this school the staff is great and the curriculum is up to date. This deserves a medal I love Mandarin Oaks Elementary School.

This school has a high rating but in truth, they don't do a good job to help the individual student. Good teachers leave and they hire new teachers that are incompetent... and the student suffers. Teachers practice student favoritism and have no clue on how to treat students fairly. The teachers only are there to get their paycheck and the school is just geared to have high FCAT rating. If you care for your child, find a better school!!!!!

I am very happy with this school choice. My daughter is in the ESE program, and the teachers and entire staff have positive, professional attitudes, and we are always greeted with a smile. I get constant updates of my daughter's progress. I love how the ESE students have their own part of the school, separate from the mainstreamed kids. They even have extended day care specifically for the ESE kids, which give me peace of mind. Great school!

The staff is great, the curriculum up to date. It has all good scores from great sachools.org and from local parents. It sure deserves and needs a prize!

We were at a private Christian school for 2 years and we assumed our son was getting the best education there. Come to find out, it was sub-par, he was threatened and beat up and administration did nothing about it. We had no other choice but to take him out and 'try' our public school. We enrolled both our son's at MOE and find that our older son (the one who was at the private school) was slightly behind academically After the first 9 weeks, my son's teacher took such an interest in him and now he is making A's and B's. Our other son can not wait to go to MOE every day. In kindergarten, he is learning narrative writing vs. functional writing, estimation skills, and interpreting graphs. I have to say, if we stayed at the private school, our kindergartner wouldn't be coming home with these impressive comments.
