We love Imagine School at Land O Lakes because of its focus on character. It was what lead me to send my children there. students are recognized for their positive character traits. Character is just as important as academic achievement. They have also grown some much academically. If they need extra help, they are given the attention. On the other hand, when needed, they have had opportunities to be challenged. I am confident that when my children leave Imagine they will be prepared academically, emotionally, and socially. This a great school with so much parent involvement!
The teachers and staff are very caring and pay attention to the kids on a personal level than at regular public schools. The teachers would work during their free time to give extra help when needed, and were always on top of each child's progress. I was always welcome on campus to help in the classroom with anything their teachers needed. My kids never complained about going, even after having the luxury of being at home for so many years. Thank you for the smooth transition.
Imagine School of Land O Lakes is "A HORRIBLE SCHOOL", My son attended 1st grade there and on the 1st day of school he came home crying. They don't concentrate in academics, every week they have either crazy hair day, pajama day, or sports day, or movie day. They also go on too many field trips. My child is very smart and bright and I feel they did not provide him an equal opportunity. Theirs a lot of favoritism, if you don't make it to be homeroom mom, they will not help your child or pay your child attention. My son was sick and did half his homework and was given a Zero I had to call and fight to have the Zero taken off, and told the teacher "this is first grade not college". They don't teach in this school so if you enroll your child, be prepared to pay for a tutor.
Parent choice is the driving force behind the school's success. It is disheartening to read posts about Imagine families that have not experienced positive results. Even more concerning is when the posts contain false information. ISLOL is led by a principal and leadership team who focus on kids. There is not an AP, as noted in an earlier post. The school believes in a Positive Behavior Support System and suspensions for severe behaviors are based off of the school and district student code of conduct - all posted online. The school owns the feedback, good or bad. Imagine continues to make an impact in the lives of students through a strong character education program, staff focus on student learning gains and a cohesive belief that all stakeholders (board, staff, students, and parents) must work together. It's not perfect, but real. I would encourage any potential family to visit and ask to see the documentation showing learning gains, disciplinary actions and goals for future success!
We were new to this school this past year for middle school and can say we were pleasantly surprised. The curriculum seems good although would be nice if state of Florida would make up their mind. The teachers are interested in the education of the students and the students are for the most part well behaved and respectful of others. The school does have a few space issues but its organized and the parent involvement is good but could use a bit more parents to volunteer on a regular basis. Wish they had plans in the near future for a charter high school in the area.
After 4 years, my daughter graduate from this school in 8th grade. My son did two years ago as well. Great principal, great teachers! Mrs. Kupchick, Mrs. Patel and Mrs Kilmer and Mrs Lojo; Thanks so much for being of my children education. Thanks for the emails, for your concern when their grades went down. I wish you the best in your life. God bless you and the Imagine School. You are the best Sincerely Giovanna
This is a horrible school, they left my son without lunch for two days and suspended him for 3 days because he asked for his lunch. " I need to get to the lunch lady." he said and was suspended for 3 days. Was suspended for another three days because he kicked a ball during soccer and it took a child in the stomach and suspended for another 2 1/2 days because he was not happy that he messed up his project, requested another paper and the teacher refused to give him one. and another 3 days because the Assistant Principal asked him to pick up his mess and he said it was not his mess. I removed my son from there immediately after 1 year.
My son went to this school last year and loved it. The principal was great and always was there to answer questions and assist us. The school even offered free parent classes to help us better support our kids' development and education. The teachers met with us regularly to provide feedback and support. We were really impressed with the school and would highly recommend it!
I am not typically one who writes reviews but seeing people post things that are incorrect about a great school I just can not stand for. This is probably the best school in Pasco County! My children have attended Imagine since it opened in 2008 and have thrived. All teachers have been phenomenal and helpful with any issue. As far as parent involvement goes there are many opportunities to get involved within the school. I can not say enough positive things about this school. As far as the parent who wrote the negative review about the school and principal, you may want to get your facts straight. You are completely inaccurate about our principal and her experience. This principal is on top of everything!! I have never seen one person do so much for the kids and the school.
My son really enjoys going to this school and is doing great. The teachers do a great job of communicating with the parents. The parents still have to help their children with homework since we are asking the kids to do more now these days. This school is great if you are a parent who wants to be involved.
