Very nice school where everybody treat each other like family. I'm very pleased with the education my child is receiving there, and the teachers are very nice. My only concern is the cleanliness of the school, since the cafeteria lady and the security lady are in charge of cleaning the entire school at the end of the day. They could use a professional company to clean the school, and the bathrooms need to be updated. Also the water fountains are old, dirty, and need to be fixed because the drinking water is always room temperature.
I regret giving the school a good review, its gone down in category since it became a charter. Academically? not all FCAT students do very well. Behavior? not all kids know how to behave or respect, yelling in the halls and cafeteria a well as many bullying issues throughout the day. Bathrooms are dirty as well as classroom floors. It was different when it was private, they had a male worker who kept the school spotless & was good with the kids.
