Very disappointed to experience office staff..and worse...the principal refusing to help a senior citizen with computer registration needs. Saying they were too busy....EATING! Absolutely unacceptable! Shame on you.

This was one the most horrible schools I have ever had my kids attend. Being in the Military we have had the opporunities to attend many different schools all over the US. When were stationed at PAFB we decided to leave off base and the school the kids were assigned was Sabal we lived in Eagle habor. Well the first week they switched my son to three different Kindergarten teachers. My second oldest was bullied and after a month of reporting to the school I had to go to the Board of education in Viera for any action to be done. The principle has no control and is a slacker. My child would get suspended and he was only 5 again this all occured of course after I reported the bullying. My kids cried to get them out the school and after tons of meeting my wife and I decided to move on base and they now attend beachside school and are so happy. Sabal is a disgrace and was the worse experience and as a US airman I was scared to serve the country on two tours in fear that my kids were in danger at their own elementary school. I serve this country with great honor however it is sad to see that the education system doesnt always act the same

This start of the new school year of 2010-2011 is a disaster- This school is not accomodating to the parents or the children in relation to this car loop mess. The kids are left like cattle to sit on the gound. The parents have to arrive almost an hour pror to pickup and are looped clear around the school. it makes no sense- last year the loop system worked fine. we want results are not getting answers. -upset parent

Sabal is a small community school, but it's more than that. It's like a big family where everyone knows eachother and cares about eachother. When a family is going through hard times, sabal teachers and parents rally together to help, whether it be financially, with food, with cards, or with a personal phone call. Sabal students take pride in their school because it is like an extension of their family. Our school is clean and well maintained, even though it is almost 50 years old! i love teaching at sabal because of the strong sense of community that we have here.

It is a small school that I am able to get to know all the students. There is very little turnover in students and as a art teacher I get to see them grow artistically from kindergarten up through 6th grade.

Sabal Elementary is the best school to work at in Brevard County. I have never worked at another school where the faculty, staff and students all act like they are one BIG family. Everybody is willing and happy to help eachother and want to see Sabal be the best school in the state of Florida.

This school has helped my child grow and learn. He loves going and loves to come home and tell me about the great things he learned that day. They are very good at keeping up with sending notes hope to tell me about his progress and also let me know where he could use some help!!!

My son will be going into 2nd grade this year and I have only had the best luck with Sabal. His teachers for the first 2 years were patient, thorough and great at giving me comments about how he was doing and what we needed to work on. The school newsletter that comes out each Monday keeps me informed to all the school activities. The school is prompt in returning calls and responding to my questions. We have been very impressed with how much our son has learned in the last 2 years. They give incentive to read on your own, track, a great after school program and many other things. We will have no problem with sending our daughter there next year to start kindergarten.
