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
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.
