Both of my children each attended since pre-k. I was very satisfied with the teachers at all grade levels and very satisfied with the overall school experience. I enjoyed being a volunteer and participating with the PTA. Any school is only as strong as its administration, teachers and parental involvement. I will sorely miss CME!!!

I do not like my school. I am a third grader and I have no recess when the Miami school board said that all children should at least have recess two times a week! I have more than twice as much homework as I did at my old school! The teachers are nice and care about us. The lunch guard doesn't let us talk for the last 15 minutes of lunch! Since I don't speak Spanish, I feel like a fish out of water. My first Spanish teacher was kind and helpful, but when I switched Spanish, they teachers didn't get me anywhere. I also can't believe that they don't let parents volunteer in there child's classroom. If any of the staff is seeing this, please see if you can improve this school so that it will be more comfortable for me and other like me.

My children have attended this school since Kindergarten and I couldn't be more pleased. They are now in 4th grade and 2nd grade. Both of my children are receiving a top notch education in a caring environment. It's almost as if they were attending a private school. I only wish Christina M. Eve Elementary would go up to the 8th grade.

I do not approve of this school's way of how we parents are not allowed to pick up our kids in their classes... We are new to all of this, having to pick up and drop off your kid in the side of the school.. Because your not allow to go in school...Yes they seem to be a "A" school but they sure are not organized... Teacher wise I cannot speak because this is her first year here at this school but anyhow on the first day which was yesterday, i dislike how the teacher had told me that she was concerned of my daughter.. I don't know what they expect the first day of school.. I only hope that this gets better

I agree with most of all the reviews stating that CME is EXCELLENT. The foundation your child receives here is top notch, however I also agree with the negative review concerning the administration. I beleive the disciplinary action is based on favoritism. My oldest daughter who is now a senior, had to stick up may times for her rights. She is an honor student that excells in cross country, something that was cultivated at CME. My youngest daughter is currently in second grade and has not faced the favoritism yet, but has faced administration sarcasm and inpatient tolerance. The front office needs a class on how to treat elemenatary kids with respect. They are young and impressionable. The teachers ,which are the most important...Are expert with the utmost patience and compassion to our children. This is why the school has rated A+ since it has opened.

I do not approve of this school's way of taking disciplinary actions against children! I had my daughter in this school since she was in 2nd grade and by her 5th grade year she was bullied by the ADMINISTRATION! My daughter was accused of beating up smaller children and was threatened to apologize for something she did not even do. I do not recommend anyone send their child to this school until their staff changes. My daughter is now going to be senior in high school and still is traumatized by what happened to her here. I'm not sure if the principal and/or assistant principal has changed, but if it hasn't...I strongly advise you to place your child in Dr. Gilbert L. Porter.

We have been here 10 years. We founded the school with the idea that this school is FOR THE CHILDREN AND WE believe that children come first. We have the most dedicated teachers and staff. We work very well together and love and support each other as a family.

CME has dedicated staff members and parents. We are all committed to providing the best education for our students. We truly are a family and it is felt from the moment you step on our school grounds. =o)

The Christina M. Eve family is filled with the most caring dedicated professionals I have ever had the privilege of knowing. Children are always number one no matter what other myriad tasks are required of the faculty and staff. The teachers work many extra hours, for which they are not financially remunerated, in order to offer the best education conceivable for our students. We have been an A+ school since our inception and we strive to raise the standard every school year. Christina M. Eve personifies the joy of learning and enriching students' lives for the betterment of all.

I have two daughters at CME. I have been very happy so far. My daughter had Ms. Sosa and Ms. Figueras, both excellent teachers. My other daughter was in VPK with Ms. Arratia, again an excellent teacher. I have also met several times the principle, Mr. Diaz, who I think runs a great school.

Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
