We moved here last summer (2014) and are about to finish our first school year at FHC. We have two boys in 1st and 2nd grades and both have really enjoyed their year here. We moved from a great school in IL and we were very nervous about what this move would mean for our children academically. They have thrived this year at FHC. Our youngest was struggling with reading at the beginning of the year and is now above grade level. Our oldest can be a bit lazy when it comes to school work, but his teacher has really encouraged him to keep moving forward. I would not hesitate to recommend this school to other families moving to Fish Hawk!

We are a military family who has lived all over and FishHawk schools are so far the best we have experienced. The teachers at FishHawk Creek Elementary are phenomenal and really seem to care about the students. The only downside we experienced is the principal. She was abrasive and was unpleasant to deal with, but the office staff more than made up for her shortcomings. We did not have to interact with her much and that is why we give 5 stars.

Our 6-year-old son is both autistic and advanced. He was in pre-K programs and now K at FHC. From the first day, we couldn't have been more blessed. It seems like absolutely everyone at that school knows his name, and they are SOOOO loving, patient and generous with him - teachers, secretaries, nurse, cafeteria workers, etc. He's gotten the extra attention and assistance he's needed, and he's working on a 2nd- or 3rd-grade level. We haven't had to butt heads with the principal yet (knocking on wood end table), but the experience we've had so far has been a dream.

Well let's see, I have been involved with FHC for over 8 years, first with my disabled child who received no help which would have been just making accommodations. I don't have time to fill out a plan which would force the teachers/administrators to use common sense but all they do is hide behind administrative regulation and well common sense takes a back seat. After being harrased by not only students (no bullying focus at all) but teachers I have had to virtual school her. Now my 3rd grader brings home a failing reading and math alert which is strange since her report card showed all on levels and above. This teacher did not advise at all about this and all she would have to do is write in the daily calendar "please come see me"" or she is doing poorly in xyz. Nothing no communication. I would complain to the principle but she is just a 130k performing monkey.

The teacher was absent frequently and not very smart. She actually told my daughter that princesses do not exist. Can you imagine a teacher oblivious to the many countries with monarchies still in existence? The school itself is well maintained and the campus is very nice. The front counter administration personnel are wonderful as is the school nurse. Theprincipal is not approachable, but the remainder of the staff are great. As for parent involvement, room moms of FHC could make for a dramatic reality show.

This school is way too crowded at 20-1 or greater in some classes. Ask the office . By January the parents keep enrolling with a third grade class of 31 students. Great Schools states an error in the student teacher ratio. Don't come to this school unless you expect to be packed in like sardines . Teaches are expected to teach too many children and the pressure becomes intense on the children to perform as the scores need to look good. Gossip is the rule at this school. We looked at the alternatives of Bevis which is an A rated school and Stowers which is a stones throw away. Surface appeal of this school is deceiving . I am not venting but this is a fact. Go to another school.

Our family, like many others, have experienced different schools in different states. Our son has been a student at Fishhawk Creek for two years and he's excelling wonderfully. All of his teachers are kind and compassionate and give him the motivation to succeed. We are very pleased with our experience.

If you are military and moving way out here for this school--don't. Average at best--not a 10 in my book. The commute is 45 minutes minimum every day, which would be fine if the school were great. The principal is, well I'm not sure, but not friendly, able to communicate or willing to listen. Maybe Bevis is better???

What A Huge Disappointment! One of the main reasons we moved here was because of the "great" public schools. FHC has been anything but. If you have a gifted student, do NOT send your child to this school. The administration is mediocre, at best. The principle is unresponsive, and thoroughly supports a teacher who is clearly disqualified to instruct our student. Lame, lame, lame.

If you have a child on an IEP or special needs, even minor learning disabilities, DO NOT ENROLL THEM IN FHC! Terrible, terrible, terrible! The school is HORRIBLE with helping special needs students! They only care about test scores!

Coming from a DOD school system, we hoped for a better teaching and learning experience for our son. The teacher separates boys from girls in the seating arrangement, is unorganized, and fickle. The principal is unavailable, ineffective and lacks the leadership qualities to assist the teachers to be better. It is unfortunate, because there are other teachers and staff at this school that are great. We have had a few conferences, but the lack of communication has not improved. The leadership in this school needs to change so that the teachers will have a firm, supportive, and innovative team structure to depend on.

We moved to this district from a small, poor, rural school district in Michigan that only has a Greatschools rating of "5." Let me tell you, I would choose that district over FHC every day of the week and twice on Sunday. The only positives for FHC are that there is no violence, and the teachers actually teach, but as for any "best in the area" ratings, FHC isn't that good...other districts are worse. The principal is unresponsive and has a "well, Stowers is up the road if you don't like us" attitude. The policies of the district are ridiculous -- uniforms for a public school? They do have a waiver to opt out of uniforms, which we signed for my oldest daughter...after the principal lectured us on how we were bad parents for doing it. My youngest girl is super-smart, but a bit ADD, and they treat her like she's mentally challenged, send her to the counselor's office to play for the day, and are mean to her on the school bus. I hate watching her hang her head and physically shrink as she approaches the bus. If you are a conformist suburbanite, with "yes ma'am, no ma'am" kids, you will love FHC. If you think for yourself and teach your kids to do the same, well, good luck.

Both of my kids are thriving at this school. Great memories of their former teachers each time they progress to the next grade. Wonderful environment, many opportunities to get involved, not overwhealmed with fundraising . . . all is good. Teachers are first-rate and principal seems around all the time to me. Seems to know most kids by name and considering there are 1000 kids . . . that's something.

This school is horrible all around. My child had 1 good teacher. It was his 3rd grade teacher. They cater to the "gifted" children..not to children that have a difficult time learning. They do not care and why should they. They get paid whether your child learns or not. Children with learning disabilities are sort of pushed under the rug. If your child can learn with little guidance, they will do fine at this school. Good luck getting in touch with the principle.

Mrs. Bush, Principal, at FishHawk Creek was voted Elementary Principal of the 2011-2012 school year by Hillsborough County PTA. She was nominated by the FHC PTA. This is out of 143 Elementary schools. I will say that nomination and vote speaks for itself.

I have enjoyed most of my experience with this school. My oldest daughter came here in first grade and couldn't read at all. By the time first grade was over, however, she was up to level and has continued to improve in her reading. My kids also really enjoy art and music. My experience with the teachers has been very positive. My kids have had hard-working, caring teachers each year so far. My only negatives would be the fundraisers, which I feel are pushed just a little too hard, and being nickeled and dimed to death. As for Ms. Bush, I really like her. Once when my daughter missed the bus, she drove her home because I didn't have a car to go get her with. I'm sure she has her shortcomings, but she does seem to care about the students; and that goes a long way in my book.

Chorus is great! Teachers and school would be much better under different guidance. Pam Bush is just not a great principle and does not inspire an encouraging environment. AGP is a joke. If you want your kid in it they are in. They are not all that, yet they brag themselves to other kids. My son has Aspergers .and this school nearly ruined him. They have no understanding of special needs nor any staff for it.

I have had two children at this school, starting in 2006. They, together have had 9 different teachers. Three of which were great. There are great teachers but it's hit and miss, its a parent scramble at the end of the year, b/c we are all waiting for the teacher placement forms to be put out. We are not permitted to request a teacher, which is fine, its who we DON'T want that keeps us on our toes. It's a shame to be in such a great district and have our principal not respond to the issues our school has. Most parents know that the principal is what she is...unresponsive. Its sad but true. We are right around the corner from the Number one school in the state, and we are #122..that is b/c she wont hire new teachers or move them to a more appropriate teaching level due to their personalities or lack there of. This principal has had her own teachers remove their children from certain classrooms..and still keeps that teacher on staff. I don't understand that. There is huge parent involvement in this school...most are stay at home moms. That's a huge plus. I don't know what needs to happen, if I could move, I would. All u can do is start asking around, and find out who u DONT want

My child has been as FHCE for two years and in those two years I had to challenge teachers, admin and principle. My child hate going to school, except for music and art those teachers actually allow the children to have fun instead of TEST TEST TEST. Since year one I've been trying to get my child into another school by the way of the choice program but each year we haven't been approved. This school make my child feel like an infant they can't walk their self to class when there late they must always have an escort. They can't sign themselves into school ADULT ONLY. This school doesn't prepare the children to do things for themselves. Once they hit middle school they will be shocked that they are responsible for themselves and not hand holding. They are not allowed to socialize in lunch. The lunch and the school in forces that age old comment "Children should be seen and not heard" If you are looking at this school don't walk but run away!! A child should have an overall experience at school socializing, education not just TEST TEST which is all that FHCE cares about that is why they are 10 by the board cause they push it from day one.

This school babies the children which makes the children unprepared for middle school. The principal would rather pass a over a problem to teachers or parent rather then handle it herself. The teachers I've interactive with would rather blame a child for missing work and not tell the parent until it's too late. Overall don't walk but run away from this school unless you want problem after problem to hurt your child education.

Yes, it is true that there are no recesses. Teachers have the option to schedule their own recesses. My 2nd grader has 2 a week and my 4th grader doesn't have any. The teachers are good, and the students do learn a lot. I am not happy with the principal for multiple reasons. My biggest complaint is that the school heavily ephasizes testing, so much so that I feel it stresses out the kids, or can take the fun out of learning.

There is a reason this school is rated a 10 out of 10...it is THAT good! There are NO silent lunches and curriculum is current with the times, meaning these kids are getting the education they deserve, it is fast paced and on the same quality of a private school. The kids do wear uniforms and the enviroment is foscused on education. If parents want to get involved there are MANY avenues to get involved, sometimes things are what you put into it!

We recently transferred here from Northern Illinois to the FHC community. My eldest daughter who excelled in school is now behind and little to no assistance is provided. Requests for conferences are unacknowledged. My once outgoing and enthusiastic girl is now a depressed and nervous wreck. She is constantly worried that she is in trouble for the simplest of things. I will be re-evaluating her continuing in this system next year.

We moved here from Europe in January and since we bought a house in FHC Elementary school district we enrolled our kids there. This was my and their first experience with an American school and I have to say the experience has been a negative one! If I had to do it again I would have tried to research the schools in the area a little more before enrolling them. Both my kid's teachers last school year were absolutely fabulous but unfortunately the administration of the school leaves much to be desired. They expect one to know how things are done at their school and information is only shared when asked specifically and rules are changed on, what seems a whim. I was also shocked to see just how wasteful the school is with food items and with paper! My children brought/bring home a plethora of neon colored paper with a bunch of useless information. This is not a way of teaching our children to perserve our environment. They have daily planers that have to be signed. Why not teach them to be independent and have them write things down! I am glad to say that one of my children now goes to Randall Middle School and so far we have no complaints.

We were so disappointed at FHC. My child was completely bored in first grade. I think some of the teachers are good and the gifted, art and music teachers are excellent. Unfortunately, the principal is totally unavailable and simply doesn't appear to want anything but average students. She doesn't allow teachers to teach to the children, only the test. They spent an entire month doing nothing but practicing for SAT. We are disappointed to be moving to another school, especially with FHC's proximity and convenience to our home. However, my child hated going to school each day (except for art day) and we are our kids only advocates.

My family moved here from Atlanta and were very surprised how great the schools are. The Principal has had a very tough job running a new school right down the street from an already established "A" rated school. The community is so large that there are 2 elementary schools inside the planned community. Both are "A" rated schools. I have found the teachers at this school to be awesome. The support from teachers outside of class and the strong PTA working together has made it an opportunity to get involved with my child's school. I love that teachers encourage parent involvement inside the classtoom.

We moved from the higher end suburbs of Chicago to here and we have two kids at FHC. I completely understand people blame the schools for all of their problems, but I'm telling you this school is lights out fantastic. Ultra clean, very professional teachers, the gifted program is very heavy on science and our kids both absolutely love their teachers. The community is tight knit and well educated. The parents are very involved, and the kids overall are very well behaved. FHC last year moved up to #19 for average FCAT scores out of 1800+ schools in FL. This is incredible for a student body of 1000+. The gifted program isn't some watered down everyone gets in program either. You have a formal standardized IQ test and if you score in the top 2%, you get in. How many are gifted at FHC? 11% of the student body is in the top 2% of IQ test takers. That is incredible. Expectations IMO are quite high, and maybe some kids and parents can't hack it. Bottom line is, this is an incredible school, in a fantastic community. Do your own research, and you will find that Bevis or FHC to Randall to Newsome is probably the most solid k-12 track in the area and the state. WE LOVE IT.

Well what else can I say about this school, it's rated a 10 out of 10, we choose to have every child wear uniforms, and to have a first grader be excited about Science, she can't stop telling us about what she did in school each day. I excited that my child loves to talk about her class subjects and what she learned in school that day at our dinner table. Come visit for yourself and see!!!

I am a parent and educator. I walked my child into her classroom every day. A few things are very apparent about FHC. It is very clean. Teachers appear friendly and are visible. The Principal is stand-offish but visible. Students are well-mannered and orderly. The school newsletter is frequent and keeps parents informed of school events. My child was in the EELP class. Her teachers and aides were kind, flexible, caring and really responsive to most concerns I had. The IEP process was very painless and I had no problem having my daughter's accomodations met. Great Speech, OT and PTs. My only cause of dismay is my daughter came home with the odd bruise at least 3 times and no one seemed to know how it happened...I have another chld that will start Kindergarten this year. I plan to stay involved. That is the key to a great school.

I wonder what grade level the children are from the previous post. We have experienced nothing but quality and support. I have never heard of bullying issues going unchecked. Families need to be proactive about protecting their kids experiences at school and everywhere else. It's easy to blame the school. But our children's well-being is not the school's responsibility alone. It really does take a village. Be a positive part of it.

My children have attended 4 different schools in the past 9 years due to my husband's job. I had heard so many great things about the Fishhawk community and was very excited to have my youngest child attend Fishhawk Creek Elementary. Unfortunately, that enthusiasm died out pretty quickly. We have dealt with sub-par teachers, overcrowded classrooms, unresponsive administators, bullying issues, and a total lack of communication on the part of the staff. The kids don't have any social time and it makes it very hard to make friends. Has anyone ever heard of silent lunch and silent recess? I can't wait for open enrollment this January. I am looking forward to getting my child out of this horrible school.

My children have gone to this school since its inception. I think the school is great however, this year I have noticed the extreme importance, almost to the point of being obsessive, emphasis on discipline and behavior. My kindergarten son who has been in a structured setting since he was born has not acclimated to this school, the teacher, nor made any friends because he apparently is failing in the discipline/behavior department. I think its important that the children learn appropriate behaviors but they are attending school to learn, they are not at boot camp. School also lacks recess/free time from very rigorous academics, not enough extra curricular activities provided. Up until this year, the teachers we have dealt with are fabulous and my older kids have been blessed to have had them.

The school is definitely way over-crowded - more triads this year with 1st graders and too many portables. The principal lacks communication skills. But, the asst. principal makes up for her in so many ways. She has made significant improvements since arriving last year. She is extremely easy to talk to so I have just addressed any concerns to her and she has put my mind as ease. Even though the school has too many children - it is still rated an A. I am thanful for that. They seem to be managing this situation the best they can. My child has not ever suffered due to this and his teachers have been GREAT. If I ever have to question that, it will be time to remove him and move.

My son has attended FHC since it opened and I have never had any communication issue with the principle. I have found her easy to talk to if you ko talk to her and not at her. She is a very dedicated principle who cares deeply about all the children and she does not show favoritism toward any group or child. Being a new school there will be personalities that will not mix well. Far as I can tell there is a good blend which creates a learning environment that is reflected in the scores. Parent involvement is very high. If you are expecting to receive some sort of special treatment outside of what the county provides, that is not suppose to happen and it does not happen at FHC. Bottom line it's a great school, get involved and your child will enjoy being educated

My son attended an Early Learning Program I was very disappointed with the way the program was run. The teacher did not have enough experience to handle this vigorous group of children. They were there for many different disabilities and I feel the staff was using this group of children as an experiment to run the program. The principal was not helpful with any of the issues that arose during the school year. I since then disenrolled my son. My daughter now goes there and she is not too happy with the school. The school to me needs better leadership. Also I don't feel the children have good security in this school. I also agree with the previous parent the kindergartners should not be placed in portables. They are too young to wonder to the back of the campus on their own to portables.

My daughter is in kindergarten and the teachers are great, however the principal is very hard to deal with, only sees issues and concerns her own way. Her attitude is its my way and she is on a clear path of her own. Bringing in portables for kindgergaten due to class size to large. 5 year olds should not be in portables. However that is the principals plans and there is no changing her mind. To grade this school on the principal definately would get a failing grade . A++ for parent involment. Hats off to us parents.

I cannot say enough about the dedication of the staff. While this is our first year in the district, both my children have been blessed with educators who truly go above and beyond. The principal is professional, caring, responsible and creative and truly jumps in each day with sleeves rolled up. Children do indeed come first here, as far as their academic performance is concerned. Any child in danger of not performing well on FCAT is provided with complimentary tutoring and practice after school hours. The creativity and dedication of the art and music teachers is without compare, as is the condition of the building and the resources within. While the academic standards and ESE services are not as we are used to in the Northeast, they are at the very pinnacle of Florida's expectations. We feel very blessed and thankful to be a part of the Fishhawk family.

My daughter has been at this school since the school opened in 2004. We have been fortunate in that my daughter has thus far has had two fantastic, experienced teachers. Academically, she is doing great although I'd like to see her challenged a bit more. I feel the school lacks tremendously with its arts programs and 'extras'. The kids don't get recess everyday and have little release from the rigorous amount of academics they sit through all day. I have found the administration at the school to be unapproachable and feel this is reflected in the moral of the teachers. This school is run as a very tight ship and the few times that I have tried to voice concerns to the principal I feel I was treated rudely. I believe the administration needs a serious overhall. Academically, the school is up there with the best of them.
