The Principal and Assistant Principal are amazing! The teachers are also great! The school in general has wonderful school spirit, activities, and fund raisers the kids really enjoy. However, the teacher's assistants in the morning cafeteria are Mean and Unprofessional! They yell at the children in the morning during breakfast time as though these kids are in some sort of penitentiary center (jail). As parents we work hard to get our children ready for school in the morning, trying to set a positive tone for a great day, just to have it crushed by an "angry at the world " attitude from an assistant. They need more training on how to speak to children! If they do this behavior in front of parents, I can't imagine what they do/say when we aren't there!
My daughter just transferred to that school and I don't like that much.. No communication so far between parent/ teacher. No daily activity worksheet her backpack always empty. Parking in the morning is terrible and stressful. When you enter the office administration the staff doesn't look friendly at all. We don't feel welcome and we miss our old school witch it "Bennett elementary school" .
Margate Elementary is an amazing school, with the most incredible faculty and staff. Children are provided with a top-notch education in a true family atmosphere. All are welcomed at this great school!
I love this school!! We are all like family and principal Schroeder is phenomenal!! He knows each child by their name and most of the parents as well!!! I couldn't ask for a better school for my son!! My son is challenged every day and he is pushed to success in just the perfect amount!! His teacher mrs reisner is the best teacher ever we love her teaching skills and I am thrilled that my son has her as a teacher!! Panther pride all the way!!!
I would highly recomend this school to anyone going into elementary school in this area. I love this school! Very warm and welcoming small community feel and Mr. Schroeder is a wonderful principal. The teachers are all great are really care about the students here and allow the children embrace their unique talents. .
My son has attended Margate Elementary since 1st grade (he is now a 4th grader) and I am extremely pleased with the quality of education he has received from the staff. Mr. Schroeder, the principal, is a true example of commitment to education and to the success of the students. It is heartwarming to see him, on a rainy day, come to the front gate and greet students with a smile, and an umbrella. The teachers truly enjoy what they do, and I constantly feel that I am in a partnership with the teachers to help my little one thrive! I highly recommend this school.
My daughter started kindergarten this year and we love it. They have tons of family events and my daughter is doing great. In preschool at a daycare center she was not learning as i would have liked her to but ever since she started at ME she has been learning very well. The staff is awesome and teachers as well. I did hate when they had to reduce the classroom size because my daughter was one of the children that was switched to a new teacher but she seems to be doing great still.
