Sabal Palm has been a blessing to my grandson and next year my granddaughter will attend Kindergarten there. The teachers that we have dealt with have been a blessing (Ms. Griffith and Ms. Gerson). My grandson has learned a lot from them and continues to enjoy everyday he attends school.

Sabal Palm is Amazing ! I have twins in kindergarten and to watch how much they have learned and grown from the beginning of the year is simply amazing. The teachers are very helpful and have an enjoyment for teaching. It shows through their students.

Peaceful Parent Sabal Palm is such a wonderful school it is truly home away from home for my two children who attend. When my children are all finished at Sabal Palm it will truly be a sad day. We will never again find teachers like Mrs. Bookhart or Ms. Roy.

This school is AWESOME!! My son attended Kindergarten and first grade at Sabal Palm and we were very pleased!! He was in an inclusion class for Kindergarten which meant it was a coteach setting. Ms. Adams and Mrs. Albertson were a great team! I felt comfortable leaving my son with them daily and he learned a lot. They were quick to respond to parent emails and easy to work with, a great experience! In first grade, my son was in Ms. Pelton's classroom and again I loved working with her! She is a talented, even tempered, kind teacher who cares about her students and works well with parents. Ms. Pelton was truly a huge blessing to us! My son thrived in her classroom. The teachers that we had at Sabal Palm were easy to contact and happy to answer questions and address concerns of parents. I highly recommend all three teachers. The extended day program was run well. We never had any contact with the principal because the teachers were professional and we never needed to take things to the next level. Highly recommend!!

This school has provided a very low quality of education to my son. First of all he was stuck in a classroom with a ratio of 34 to 1, even though they tried to say it was b/c they had two teachers, but that wasn't true. When one of the teachers was absent, which was quite often, no substitute was hired to come in. When one of the teachers were teaching the other wouldn't even be in the classroom most of the time. Teachers failed miserably in controlling the classroom and providing a safe learning environment. I would look elsewhere for a safe school environment for you child.

Our 5th grade daughter has attended Sabal Palm since kindergarten, and this school has met or exceeded every expectation we had - it is one of the best public elementary schools not only in Jacksonville but the entire state of Florida!! We couldn't be more satisfied with the quality of teachers, the level of academics, the interaction of the PTA and administrators and the overall 'friendly, learning atmosphere' that exists in this wonderful facility. It comes from the top down, and is truly a great place to send your child to school. Not one time in our six years have we ever been concerned with our daughter's safety or well being, and she is now well educated to move on to the middle school level. If you are considering sending your child to this school, rest assured you will have made the right choice in Duval County.

We have been going to Sabal Palm for 3 years now to include the before and after school care and summer camp. This in my opinion is a very family oriented and involved school. The teachers are wonderful and it is a very up to par and above school. My son is doing very well there and I look forward to my other son going there in the future.

Our motto says it all: A friendly school where children love to learn and dreams can be accomplished. I think that given the size of this school and the dramatic budget cuts that they are facing, our kids receive the incredible care and commitment from the teachers and administrators. The PTA and parent involvment is outstanding. I feel lucky to have such a great neighborhood school for my children to attend.

This school is the unsafest school I've ever attended. My kindergarten student while sitting in the hallway got hit by a 5th grader and the principal barely pretended to care. Mrs. Mickel is gone and this school is going to pieces. Teachers act like they don't see the bullying going on, and it's everywhere. I would never send your child to this school.

We love Sabal Palm, my daughter transferred from another Duval County school in February and I was concerned the transition would be difficult for her but the teachers are great and they have made her feel right at home and she has told me she really enjoys it! I will also say that this school is much more advanced than my daughters prior school which did concern me since I thought all Duval County schools would be on the same lesson plan or at least relatively close but was I wrong. When my daughter switched schools just a few miles away they were so far advanced from her prior school that I was concerned that she would have a lot of problem catching up but her wonderful teacher has helped her out tremendously and she is doing well. I would recommend Sable Palm to everyone!!

I love Sabal Palm Elementary, it is a great school for my son. He loves his school and the faculty far exceeds my expectations. The principal is involved in all aspects of the school. She is open to all parents concerns and is very proactive. Each week she selects children from each classroom to come to her office for a special treat. We feel blessed at Sabal Palm!

I have been involved with Sabal Palm now for 5 years and I have nothing but outstanding words for the school. Both my son and daughter attend this school and I wouldn't change schools for anything! I have several friends who attend private schools and although we could afford to send ours to private we feel that they are getting an incredible education at Sabal Palm. My son has had the incredible experience of having 2 teachers that were recognized as Teacher of The YEAR! You can't get much better than that. The teachers strive to constantly improve and introduce the kids to learn in various environments. The only negative I have to say is that the curriculum for the county could IMPROVE! But, that is not the schools fault! Way to go Sabal Palm~

Sabal palm is definitely not for everyone!My child past the first grade 2006. but I have to recognize that the principal was really nice friendly responsible and she was always happy.I think the school has a lot of improving to do before they can even call themselves 'Sabal palm where kids love to learn'

Our daughter is in the 5th grade. We are very pleased with her teachers this year and there involvement. The teachers are very pro active and the students really like the format and seem to thrive better because of it. We enjoy the level of communication between teacher and parent as well. Our daughter actually likes going to school and likes her teachers as well, many parents wish for this and we feel we are among the lucky ones that our daughter attends Sabal Palm Elementary

My daughter is in first grade and I am disappointed that every time I try to get involved I am politely discouraged. about 25 kids per classroom with 1 teacher and no aids. The class is supposed to be advanced but does that mean we can't help or know anything that is going on?

Tremendous Kindergarten program. All the K teachers are very knowledgeable and caring. I found my child's first year of school to be very rewarding and was so pleased that she was in such a wonderful environment. As a Kindergarten teacher myself (at another school], I know what to expect and she got that and more. I couldn't have asked for a better start for her.

The exceptional learning program is great! Mt daughter was have problems reading in the 1st grade at another Duval County School. We moved to Sabal Palm and she has two teacher and the ESE teacher in the classroom. The inclusive teaching helps her stay on track with her class, yet receive the one on one instruction she needs.

The teachers my children have had at this school have gone above and beyond to provide them a great academic experience. They have made them feel special and important in very large school. I was at first worried about the size of this school but it is run wonderfully, and my kids have had fantastic teachers.
