I am Hispanic and I had not seen any discrimination. I have not been long in the school. I will give it until the end of this year before moving my son to another school. I HATE the insecurity of the place. Any one can walk in and out with no one questioning. I had done it many times. On December 21, 2012 I when inside school so see an event. When the even was over I took my son out of school early. I pass couple teaches and a policewoman. I had no pass from the office. No one stop me to ask who I was and why I was taking a small boy out school. It is not safe. The keys are a very friendly and save environment but you can not fall sleep with safety.

My kids are off to a great start! Wonderful Staff! Wonderful Principal and Assistant Principals. They all care. So proud to be a part of it all! If you are having problems talk to them; you'll see...

It is painful when things change but such is the case when the new principal took over 3 years ago. Obviously a huge decline. First graders told to use calculators as oppossed to teaching them math. Honor roll for B average? Awards to EVERYONE to the point of being meaningless. Teachers too busy on their laptops to teach, obviously riding it until retirement. Administration ambivalent to any issue more important than the tater tots for lunch.

I love Key Largo School! I went there when I was younger and now my son is in kindergarten there this year. He loves it. The staff is all great. They put the kids first. I also love seeing the same faces still teaching after all these years!

Our family moved to the Keys due to difficulties. I appreciated the confidentiality provided by children concerning the situation. Not a word was said, the staff just welcomed them with open arms and began working what I can only describe as magic. My children are active in the many school activities and love all the focus on environmental studies, This school literally had a vocabulary parade with the entire school dressing as a word. It was amazing and a great way to promote reading. Living in the Keys is Paradise due to Key Largo School.

We moved to the upper keys 3 years ago from Miami and I feel like we moved to another planet. My youngest son is in kindergarten (Ms. Pam's class) and attends this great school. The whole school staff is wonderful and friendly. Ms. Pam is the sweetest teacher I have ever met. I don't think there's another school that has as many activities as this school has. I have a 17 year old, so I've been through elementary and middle school before and I honestly have to say that this school should be nominated the best school of the Nation. GREAT SCHOOL!!!

What makes Key Largo school such a great school is the Principal/s and teachers. They are all visable, proactive, concerned and involved. The new school is beautiful.

My son went to this school for K-2. We left because we relocated but we think very highly of it. And now that the school is getting a new building, which it badly needed, it will definitely be better. The principal is fantastic and we were lucky to have Ms Pam, Ms Ingegno and Ms Bernal for K- 2. My son loved the school and the we really appreciated the way the teachers handled our situation during after a family tragedy. There is definitely a lot of emphasis on the FCAT but children who excel are also catered to. Great school.

This is a wonderful school. Most of the teachers are excellent and concerned. The teachers my children have had were quick to identify problems &quick to identify the need for evaluation for advanced classes. The principals are student oriented, they are visible to the students and parents, doing bus duty, etc and are easy to contact and meet with. The school has many programs, DARE, character education. There is always room for improvement and I believe that is recognized all the way up the 'chain of command' to the Superintendent.

I have a handicapped child in Key Largo School and I am very disappointed with the quality of his education. There is very little available to him and the ESE department is not responsive to parents concerns.
