So glad my sister got approved to leave the horrible school she was at and was able to come here. She has done so well. She got awarded Student of the Month today! That speaks volumes. Very happy with this school so far!

It was a good school, until my nephew was not picked up, by the aftercare staff, because the idiots from the ymca are not doing there job right. Funny how they can take your money and deposited it, but remember a child, who is listed for pick-up. This also happen to my daughter, who was found behind the school. Thankfully nothing happened to her. I hope and pray that God is watching over his children, like he is his fools.

This is one of the best schools my children have attended. My oldest son has been to two other so called 'A' schools and was not getting the education he got from Colonial Drive. The teachers are very aware of each child's needs and will always speak to you if you have a concern. I would recommend this little school to anyone!

Could be better interaction between teachers and parents, the students seem to be lost on class homework assignments as far as the gifted students, they are torn between there home class and gifted very confusing which teacher has which work

My nephew attends this school and I think it is a very clean school and children are well taken care of. Some teachers are nice and some pay really good attention to the children needs.

The best teachers at that school who really care and go the extra mile are. Mrs. Abousaleh,mr. Stienberg, mrs sharon huss, and mrs. Camacho. The counselor mr. Suarez is wonderful as well. They are there to make a different. The rest that I came in contact with and the administrators there is nothing nice to say.

I had my children enrolled at Colonial for the first time in 2005, at the beginning my husband and I were kind of hesitant due to its previous reputation. After doing my homework and meeting in person its principal, Mr. Henry Fernandez and his staff, we put our doubts to rest. My children are very happy and doing great, the school's environment is friendly and the teachers are excellent, the office staff is helpful and dedicated. We look forward to their graduation and would recommend this school to anyone without reserve.

I was a student at C.D.E. from 1981-1988 (K-6). I grew up in a single parent home and as such, relied on my teachers more heavily for love and support as well as an education. My teachers were all very dedicated, loving and giving. Had it not been for them I would not be the highly productive and successful adult I am today. The current reviews were appalling and reflect poorly not on the school, but on the government who has done nothing to remedy the budgetary issues. Today s teachers have a greater responsibility than they had back in the early 1980 s. They are saddled with the responsiblilty of teaching their students how to be decent human beings in addition to their standard curriculum. Shame on our government! Shame on the parents who have lopped their parental responsibilities on to the educator s shoulders!

Colonial Drive has gone from a so-so school when I attended a few years ago to a perfect example of what NOT to do with students, teachers, and parents, given a school to run. Not only do the teachers hardly teach, but the students' discipline is nonexisitent. Teachers are indifferent about students, and the administration is hardly interested in more than getting a paycheck and leaving as soon as possible.
