Same as all the other schools EXCEPT that there are MORE WHITE PEOPLE HERE . Teachers are not exceptional, nothing here is BETTER. Same bullying, same c r a p, same PUBLIC SCHOOLS THAT FAIL YOUR CHILDREN. The Teachers morale is SOOOOO LOW!!! They DO NOT have effective ESE teachers, and they only have 2 !! What a joke for over 1,000 children. Services do NOT EXIST HERE
The new Common Core Curriculum is a nightmare. I wish Florida had not taken the money, and instituted this awful thing Homework is going on for 2 hours. My daughter is crying and frustrated. The math is more like a paragraph/ cruel riddle that indirectly asks the actual math question. A disaster. The teachers cannot possibly be happy, with the risk of losing their jobs due to possibility of students scores/too low. Pressure on our students is going to be much worse than the FCats. Common Core is a Socialist form of Education. Many of the books are incorrect when it comes to important things like details of our History. Our children are having to answer personal questions on some of the tests. i.e. Do your parents get along? Do you have fire arms in your home? 11 and 12 year olds are being asked on tests what they think about Lesbian/Gay issues Its here! The dumbing down of our Children, right here in Saint Johns County Schools
Transportation DOES NOT EXIST. I sit in the pick up and drop off parent LINES FOR HOURS. If your child has a LD, this is NOT the place for you. They cannot help you, they won't. Teachers ( several) in 4th grade DO NOT CARE. KIds are very nice. School is clean and well done. Education, FORGET IT
In response to the person's response to the review dated Dec 13, their statement is false and was posted under false assumptions. I have one student in gifted and the other is in the "general population," so I am not speaking strictly to the gifted program. At times my general population child has more work than that of my child in the gifted program, but there are still high expectations and a variety of assignments for both. I am not blowing smoke - I've been in several elementary schools and JCE ranks at the top.
