There are so many wonderful things about this school and their teachers - not everyone might have the same experience as we've had in the last two years. The A.P. is VERY involved and loves the kids. The curriculum is very thorough & my daughter doesn't come home with anything she did not learn in the classroom as H.W. Let's see how 2nd grade goes next year! Excellent school!
My son attended Madie Ives for a short period of time in Kindergarten, thank goodness. The curriculum was great, however, the kids were bullys. The learning environment was very disruptive. The teacher was unattached to her job.
I love this school, My daughter is attending there and has since Kindergarten she is now in the 3rd Grade, My experience with the school has been great her teachers have and are really involved with the students, make a great effort for the students to succeed and really care about educating the Kids and their future, My daughter reads at a 5th grade level thanks to the attention and cirrculum of the school and teachers, I am very sad that this may be my daughter last year there, I really concerned about finding a school that will compare with the level of education and great experience that both my daughter and I had here. Great school!
Hello, I am a parent and this is my son's first year at Madie Ives. His K teacher is a wonderful person, and my son loves it here and i do also I am a member of the PTSA and they are great as well....
I am a parent of 2 kids at Madie Ives. Their K, 1st and 2nd grade teachers were excellent. My daughter's 3rd grade teachers do not seem to be that good. Lack of extra curricular activities. Too much emphasis on FCAT and not other subjects such as science, music and social studies.
Terrible education, terrible teachers, and unsatisfactory learning conditions. Too bad that there is not a rating below no stars.
Very excellent school. My son loves it here. Principals, students, and teachers believe in achieving the best and continuing there efforts to remain an A school.
I would rate this school good, because of the teachers. So far, my child has received two of the best teachers that were committed and involved in their academic structure.
Madie Ives is a great school, with wonderful teachers who are committed to your childs educational achievment. I was very disappointed in the after care program, who was very unprofessional and uncommitted to child safety.
We are parents of 3 children at Madie Ives. We started at Kindergarten level and now the eldest child will be graduating this year 2004. We had an outstanding experience at Madie Ives with the Principals, teachers and staff. These teachers are highly skilled and take a personal interest in the academic achievements of each child. You become 'family' to the Madie Ives Team. We are proud to have been a part of the Madie Ives Family and enjoyed being a part of the PTA. We congratulate the teachers for their outstanding work and generous efforts as it reflects in our childrens' academic abilities today. We look forward to spending the next 2 years with our youngest children before they graduate. Madie Ives will be in their past but never forgotten! Keep up the good work !!
I want to congradulate all the staff members from Maidie Ives Elementary for a well job done with my daughter who is now a fith grader at Maidie Ives. I want to thank Ms. Zerquera, Ms. Colon, Ms. Mora, and Mr. Kallan for a well job done. My daughter made it to the Assistant principal honor roll twice because of a well job done with the beautiful staff at Maidie Ives. Ms. Mora and Mr. Kallan keep up the good job. Great job with my daughter. You guys are the best teachers that I ever met. Also Ms. Zerquera. Thanks for all your help and support to my daughter. -Ms. A.
my daughter is currently at madie ives and I think that the teachers there are great and caring. Good Job for all the teachers
I have had two sons pass thru this very poor excuse for a school. My youngest just entered middle school and I was concerned that if I contacted the school on various issues that it would come back to haunt him. If a parent has a choice to send their child to Madie Ives or another school, which I didn't, do not choose Madie Ives.I could write the sequel to War and Peace!
My daughter is going to be in 5th grade. She had awesome support from the 4th grade teachers. They all helped to improve her test scores. 2 of the 4th grade teachers especially worked together to ensure exciting l. One teacher had the advanced group and they both helped the kids to achieve their potential.. I had both of my kids in a magnet program, and put them back in Madie Ives because I knew they would learn. Thanks teachers for giving both of my kids a positive experience. also, I know that they would not have had that experience without some of my involvement. I think the school would benefit from more parental involvement, that involvement has been lacking and those of you who can should get involved. sit in the class of 30 mins to see what is going on. I sat in on the fifth grade science class with my son, he was proud and the teachers are always happy to see you there. thank you!
I think this school is well on its way to becoming a great school. It has come a long way, and the new administration is much better.
The school has potential to do better with the right leadership! Get the community involved even the businesses around you! Parents needs to be more involved in order for the school to develop in the school we want it to be!
I think when it comes to choosing teacher,they need to be very careful of who they are choosing especially kindergarden teachers. I am very dissapointed with my daughters kindergarden teacher. She is cold,rude,and uninviting for a kindergarden teacher.She does not know how to communicate with others.She is not suppose to be a kindergarden teacher.I very dissappointed and I'm even thinking of removing my daughter from maddie IVES.
