My daughter has been at this school since Kindergarten. She is about to graduate from the 5th grade. She's been there for 6 years and has only had two mean teachers and one of those does not know how to teach nor has the patience for children! Always a bad apple in the bunch! The schools guards are friendly. Office staff is very helpful and always around to greet you and help you within seconds. P.E coaches are great with the kids. lots of parking in school and around the school. Very High tech with their computers and smart boards. Cameras everywhere. Great playground for the younger grades. All around great school. Highly recommend!!

My son graduated from this school and I can honestly say the last two years there in their special ed program were very disappointing. They didn't engage my child at all or prepare him for what was expected from him in middle school or the FCAT. They labeled him lazy in front of him and killed his self esteem. I am lucky enough to have found him a great Charter school that has helped him embrace education again and more importantly believe in himself. I was so disappointed that I actually took my youngest out as well and not expose him to this. I am happy I was able to act in time.

My school has a very caring and friendly enviornment. It's office staff always provides service with a smile. The teachers have high standards. There is a great PTO involved in the school. Dr. Manuel C. Barreiro's administration is very supportive. It is a child centered school where the students are encouraged to believe they will excel.

What I like about the school: It is modern, great technology as far as computers, smartboards, televisions etc.,good after school program, centric to my area. What I dislike abouth the school: Poor organization, lack of communication with parents from office staff and administration, LACK OF ADMINISTRATIVE PRESENCE. In addition,they do not have a school nurse on site. It is a shame that poor leadership has brought this school down from a rating of " A " to " B ".

My son was in a private school, was not a pleasant experience contrats MCB this school has been very good experience. Mrs Castillo is exceptional teacher,it has been a beautiful learning experience. The treatment for parenst and students is very good. Nothing to envey to a private school. I'm so glad to be a part of MCB. my son is very happy too. I recommend this school.

Teachers have no idea about anything. Kids can be picked up by anyone , they dont have no security . The teachers busy talking with each other. The teachers have no experience how to teach and improve kids grades. New school and new teachers with no experience. I would rate this school FFF.......

Academically, it is a good school, the facilities are very modern but the administration is deficient. Not one person can give a straight or consistent answer. Even though they refer to the website as the answer to all needs, the site is outdated most of the time. Parents are notified about activities at the very last minute. No extra curriculum activities for the kids.
