this school has been a disappointing from day one if your child doesn't listen they automatically send them toCSI they don't care if your child even if is a special needs child. ESE classes are large. teachers call to yell at you about the child solving nothing also they call DCF for no reason police and animal animal services despite everything these people do nothing because there's nothing to do they just do it to bug you every little thing they make a report without asking questions that's why I'm getting my child out of the school as soon as possible withdrawn and putting them in private school they don't care about the child development and all they do is bother you 24 /7
cgms best year of my life im just a sixth grader so far but i still love the school
This school holds children from many countries, mainly Hispanic. The majority of them come from low income families, and in Citrus they receive free breakfast, those who qualify receive free or reduced lunch, they attend field trips, can participate in clubs, sports, and have a gym. They have the benefits of an after school program, which takes care of them while parents work, help them do homework, in a safe and healthy environment. Teachers take care of them, instruct and educate them, and instill values and habits they don't get at home. Discipline is strict. It is a great school.
I went to this school in the early 1990s and this school is not was it was then... Sad to say ,my child will not go to that school.
i havent never seen a school like this one i fell bad for the students who go here
Citrus is the worst school ever times ten this school dosent care for your students safety at all im sorry for everyone who attend this school and staff is horrible sorry for all the kids who would never know how a real school like thare no football teams nothing at all sorry kids theres not a worst school in the country
Citrus is the worst school ever! I feel sorry for some teachers that are good like Mrs. Fernandez-Lopez, Mrs. Brooks, Mr. Moreno, Mrs. Marcos and that's it! The rest are all slacks! Thank God its my last year! All the administration are horrible! :o
I attended C.G.M.S 03-06 and I think that it has great teachers. Just a few of them are Mr. Luc, Mr. Salas, Ms. Ochoa, Pepe etc. etc. It was a place were you could participate in anything you wanted and nobody judged you. Every school has its bad crowd, and Citrus was no exception. If you did bad in school and got into trouble it was by choice because I knew many people that dad great and focused on their goals. Citrus may not be the best but at the time I went it made up for everything by the love and motivation that radiated from every classroom.
I attended Citrus Grove from 04-07 and truthfully... I have mixed feelings about it. I LOVED the teachers, they're so cool. Like Mr. Salas, Mr. Luc, Ms. Edwards, Mr. Fischer, and Mr. C Perez (which was the BEST teacher ever). But it seems like the administration doesn't care about their students. The area is horrible!! Once I moved to Miami from Miami Beach my grades dropped. Now that I moved back to the beach and attend High School it's better. Cirtus is just one of those schools that you don't have a passion for, but you have to get used to it.
i like my school like ms.ana fiscer.she is the most best teachers you can have for 6 or 7 grade she help us she is a very nice reading teacher .
I am a very happy parent this year at citrus grove middle, we have a new principal that work hard and the resutls are outstading. When I heard my son asking me to get to buy new uniform's color, also style with a mandatory code, I really knew that this will be a glorious year! that I was waiting for a long time. My best and sincere thanks to our administrator ms. Emirce lagada. Without her and staff its couln't be a better school year 2005-2006. Regards, Ms. Marinitza Velez, active parentvice- president ptsa and essac parent chair
My Daughter's teacher,Mrs Edwards,Mr Salas,Mr Farjado,Mrs Novak has been extremely patient and wonderful with my daughter.If ther was something I need to address right away, the response was immediately give back to me.Also her grades are improving a whole lot with each individual teacher.Thanks a whole bunch, from a mother's view.Sorry that I did not mentioned Mr Menendez he had replace the other teacher.I have to meet him very soon.
I am severely disappointed with my son's progress since he began this school. My son is a second generation attendee and this school was not great when I attended and is much worst now. The teachers and administration do not communicate with the parents. They show abosolutely no interest in finding solutions to ongoing problems. I am sorry I ever had my son attend and waste two years of his education trying to make headway in a school which does not really put effort in extracting the best of their students.
The school is a positive, growing, developing educational institution that has recently acquired a young stable of enthusiastic and capable teachers/staff personnel. While their testing scores are hovering in the 'C-' range, I expect their performance to only improve due the quality of some of their newest additions, as well as the ferocious tenacity of the administrative staff. The teachers seem to legitimately care about their students.
I went to this school when I was a kid and I have to say things are very different now. This school is a great disappointment to me. My children have been going to this school since the 6th grade and not once has a teacher told me anything encouraging in reference to their education. If anything all the teachers do on the parent/teacher conferences is complain about the children. Not once have I heard anything positive about a child that is not doing so good. Teachers are there to educate our children not to criticize them. This school used to be good. I don't know what went wrong.
