All I can say is that my two children have benefitted from such a wonderful school. As a Hispanic Latin parent, I feel that my son and daughter were not only treated fairly, but prepared to face such a global world and economy. I had the pleasure of dealing with my oldest in gifted and ever since third grade with a great team of teachers, all I can say is that she is the top of her graduating class this year in high school. My youngest son, struggled with classwork and homework and thanks to his teachers we realized he had a learning disability. Not only was he diagnosed but this enabled him to exceed in his work. The constant dedication of his teachers ensured that he didn't fall behind or get lost in transition. Thank you Ms. Nunez for the love of learning, my students have benefitted from all you have done!
First and foremost it's difficult for anyone who truly is a dedicated parent, mentor and human to not strive for excellent. Next, the partnership that parents, teachers & staff gives play huge part in the daily development of children. It's been identified within my time at Coral Park that certain things are conducted, dished out and preserved with kids of different ethnicity, special needs etc. I'd never attempt to falsely accuse or agree with untruthful reviews for no sane reason. Thirdly, the practices of "only communication through agendas and not direct dialogues, a call or conference is unrealistic for a school. The staff is not friendly yet once identified they are swift to try and hide their facial expressions of rudeness, respect and common manors. Indeed, you live in the community and the neighbors know everyone yet not everyone is treated equally. In addition, there was one parent who left a review about the same scenario I've experienced, that parent was "Right"! Coral Park is not trained nor well rounded to enter act with children of diverse backgrounds, special needs or children with disabilities. Lastly, I'd say it feels like a "colt" and they staff behavior is not normal. Little looks behind the desk, eye lifts, whispers are all seen as hidden practices and discrimination are centered within this school. I would not suggest or recommend anyone of minority placing their daughter or son here. It's more to the inside of Coral Park then seen on the outside.
As a former student now grown old I can say that this is your typical middle class school. The kind you see on tv, teacher gets apples from the kids, everybody listens and kids relax peacefully at recess. If you live in the neighborhood this is definitely the place.
My daughters have been attending Coral Park Elementary since Kindergarten and one has left to the Cambridge program at WR. Thomas and the other one is in 5th grade. Their Elementary experience is beyond spectacular!!! From the administration to the teachers. I have never met a lady like Mrs. Nunez, hands down to her and how she runs that school. A big THANK YOU to Ms. Acosta, Mr. Ramos (coach), Ms. Torres, Ms. Yedo, Ms. Santiago and I could go on and on but the most special and best teacher of all times Thank you Ms. Perez-Villa for your dedication to your students
I Hope Principal Nu ez reads this. This is the worst school ever no Communication what's so ever with the parents. The Teacher's nor the Principal are any good. "Hey lets wait till the year is almost over and its to Late to help him pass, or not help the child at all" "Lets have meetings but attend them late" "lets have a meeting but show no progress or improvement". Better yet "lets have a meeting to pretend we care" What kind of school really never seen.such bad people in a school waiting last minute to pretend or act as if the child matters to them. What ever the child is getting put in a 100% better school that cares about each and every one of their alumni. I talk from experience. I dont recommend this school to anyone. Worst teacher ever lucky i dont say any names or grade. Thats fine. But just REMEMBER Parents make sure your children are in good hands.
