We are just so impressed with the quality of education at Panther Run. This school is challenging and my kids love it. We couldn't be happier. My daughter is in 3rd grade and she is learning so much and she is having a great time doing so! she enjoys her teachers...Ms Harris, Mrs. Mcmichaels and Mrs. Silvestri....Thank you so much for all your hard work! Panther Run is a great school. The new administration is visible and friendly. The teachers have high expectations which is why Panther Run is such a high performing school. I think the quality is much better than other schools in the vicinity. We love it!
Like the last parent comment, I was surprised by the quality of education at the school. The teachers are outstanding and there is little turnover from year to year. our son is enjoying his experience and we look forward to when our daughter starts next year.
This is a five star school all the way around from the cafeteria staff to the principal. Great job Panther Run.
We just moved here from NY (can you believe that?) and are just so impressed with the quality of education at Panther Run. All we were told was to be wary of Florida schools, but we have found the opposite to be true. This school is challenging and my kids love it. We couldn't be happier.

I think the ESE program is terrible. The teachers don't have the time for students who really need the extra time. So what's good is the program? I think too much stress is spent on the FCAT and no time is spent on teaching the kids History and civics.
Principal leadership - what leadership? Quality of education is very poor. Parents involvement is discouraged, except when the school is consistenly hounding you to open your wallet for contstant fundraising. Fundraising for what? Certainly not for the childrens education. ESE services, what services? There are no afterschool activities nor tutoring for the children.
Panther Run is ran like a business. You are constantly receiving requests to sell things.
school is very unorganized as a whole...few teachers are willing to go the extra mile to help students..gifted program...really what gifted program?
Not impressed with the overall organization of the school. Gifted program is horrible.
First of all I was not here when we 'voted' for uniforms. It's bad enought all of the children look like sheep in a herd but if you don't tuck in your shirt or wear a belt you get a 'slip up' or are sent to the office. I know that the PTA has extra money in reserves and is holding onto the money. Enough with the pressure of raising $ for fundraisers. Put that reserved money into extracurricular activities. Stop expecting the kids to perform for an A school rating. This is all due to FCAT. Make the school look good and give nothing back to the kids. Last time I checked, this was supposed to be elementary school, not a corporation. The principle cares more about 'going for the gold' than the welfare of the kids.
This is my 2nd year at Panther Run and I am very pleased. The academics are very impressive, although there has to be so much emphasis on the FCAT preparation, but that's with all public schools. The parent involvement is key to the success of the school because the teachers are stretched with no help from aids or any where else, that's a problem. There always seems to be a need for more money which I don't understand because we pay pretty high taxes. There is no extracurricular activity except 4th & 5th grade walking club or aftercare. This is very disappointing. All in all so, far I am pleased.
I am not please with the way classrooms are assigned. Students are not assigned to classes with children of similar knowledge. Too many children are passed through to the next grade before they are ready by having those parents sign a waiver, however this practice hurts the other children in the class that are performing at higher levels. Children are bored while waiting for others to 'Catch up.'
Panther Run Elementary has a wonderful academic program and a wide variety of extracurricular activities. I was very pleased with this school. I would recommend it.
Extremely pleased with Panther Run and Project Child. Parent involvement rivals that of any private school. FCAT scores for the school are great, and it is rated an 'A' school.
I have had an overall positive experience at this school with my 3 children for the last 6 years.
ESE program is horrible whether gifted or SLD. Teachers can't be bothered to go that extra step to teach
This school is typical of the entire education system. The ESE program is totally ineffective. My child has made no progress this entire year. Their answer is that he has missed too much school. He has missed 14 days, I will take responsibility for those, will they take responsibility for the other 166? I am totally disgusted with the whole system and seriously thinking about Home schooling. Don't think about the public schools if your child is an ESE student!
Dealing with the administration of this school is harder than dealing with the telephone company. The principal is always 'too busy' to contact directly and never returns calls when you try to contact her. G for private school
