Citrus Grove Elementary School 4

The school has come a long way. Most teachers are highly qualified, now the school has fences all around, gates are closed during the school day, a security seats at the entrance, a security walks the hallways, there is supervision in the cafeteria. The school went up 84 points in the FCAT scores in 2013-2014 staying 14 points shy of getting a B. Go Citrus!!!

I agree with the concern of the parents about security and safety. the do forget to close the gates many time and is really easy to get in, I am there every day dropping of my children. I think many of the teachers are great and my children do awesome and get great grades but they do need better security and facilities, the toilets don't have seats or toilet paper and are dirty. not enough security and clean up crew, crowded classes etc...

En esta escuela los ninos no tienen ninguna seguridad,entran y salen sin supervision alguna,el dia de ayer yo personalmente camine toda el area de la escuela,despues de terminadas las clases y cuando todavia havian ninos en la escuela en diferentes actividades y nadie me pregunto,quien yo era ni que queria,igual lo puede hacer cualquier maleante,he visto a los de la seguridad de la escuela faltarse el respeto entre ellos mismos,y frente a los estudiantes,no hay a quien preguntarle nada y todos tienen malas caras,aunque creo que mi hija tiene una buena maestra,tambien creo que esta escuela necesita una mejor direccion y un poco mas de interes por el bienestar de nuestros ninos,la verdad no me parece una buena escuela en terminos generales.

It is unfortunate to see how bad this school is. There is no sort of security for the children in the mornings, they are left to run around until nearly 8:20am. The poor P.E. coach is they only one in charge to care for all children grades 2-5. The principal is never available to be seen. I have a friend whose children are also in this school and she will be transferring them out of this school after this year because they were nearly kidnapped while on school premises. The officials in this school do not seem to care about our children's safety. All they do is train these children how do good on their FCAT test. I wish someone can take a video camera to this school the school board can see what is going on!

From first hand knowledge in working at this school, I can honestly say this has got to be the worst school in Miami, Florida. I highly recommend all parents to do something about the safety, discipline and classroom morale in this school. Students are allowed to roam the hallways and school office without being asked where they should be. The principal is never around to tend to your needs, and, it is sad to say, that she has an 'ego' problem. Thirty teachers left in this school in a matter of 10 months.

My child had so much preparation for the FCAT test. It was almost too much with nothing else taught. Parents are hesitant to be involved because they all work. New principal is impossible to meet with because she is always gone. Assistnat principels seems to be good. My child is in the 5th gifted program and I am very happy. But I will be glad to move on to another school in the fall.

It needs to have more involvement from the teachers to the students.
