I had fisrt moved to Pompano Beach and my daughter attended to Palmview elementary. My daughter is the type of child that woke an hour early because she wanted to go to school, however after a month she was complaining and didn't want to go. it was a struggle every morning. I found that the school did not include music or art. I was very disappointed! I search for other schools i heard a lot about. I Moved into the Margate elementary area and my daughter started to be her old self after a week of this new school. I also did my part as i do and joined PTA and found a lot of parents involved. It also has several things that the last school did not have like art and music. Unlike the other school, it was fun, and thats when my daughter learns best!
Cypress Elementary has been a wonderful experience for my three children....They were apprehensive at first having to change schools but everyone at Cypress made the kids feel welcomed.
My child has only been at this school this year and unfrtunatley it is her last. She has had a great year and I find the school to be very old fashion you find they do things that make you feel like it is a small school. I think that is rare. And a good thing. I wish she would of had more years there but onward to middle school!
I think the school is poorly managed. The women in the front office are rude and do not offer any helpful information at their own will. It seems that everything is trial and error. The parking there is a zoo in the morning with police ticketing all the moms in front of the children which makes it very stressful for a small child. My daughter is afraid to go in the morning bec. of all the comotion-very unorganized. However, once school starts, it is well run. The teachers are understanding and the curriculum is good. I feel that the children could use more adult supervision as I have had problems with our kids. Overall it is average, but probably one of the best in the area.
I think that the school is poorly kept up with my child comeshome complaining about the bathroom.
My daughter goes to this school I wanted to get the word out about this school first off the kinder garden classes and teachers are awesome they are great cant say enough.... but the school it self is not managed well there is no parking any where unless you want to park very far from the school good luck getting your child on a bus if your to close you cant get on the bus if your to far cant get on the bus. if your dropping off your child and picking up your child expect to be there an hour before school starts and ends to this I find this very very stressful. and other parents have made many complaints and they have done nothing to correct the problem. there are police there morning and afternoon constantly giving out tickets I find this very stressful to see every day and afternoon and for my child to have to see this also. I can only speak about kinder garden class if you walk or get your child on a bus you are golden if not get ready for a very very stressful year of school... I can speak from experience the teachers there are great!!!!!!! managment at this school is rated poor!!!
