Greetings. I use to attend PRME a long time ago. I am pleased to announce that my daughter will be starting 1st grade this 2012-2013 school year at PRME. There are many of the same teachers and staff there as when I was a student. I am thrilled to now be an involved parent as I was an involved student. Good luck to everyone this school year. #OneLOve-Mrs.McGowan

My son goes to this school and I have to say I am very upset with the administration. "Some teachers" are good but I must say the majority of the students are disrespectful and behave bad. I am not thrilled about Phyllis Miller, I decided to transfer my child out of this school.

What a great school! My son is in kindergarten and he has a new teacher Mrs Peoples. What a lovely woman. She cares about the children and she is passionate about her job. The office staff is professional and the new principal is OUTSTANDING. The county finally did something right by selecting Mrs Boyd for PRMES.

I have been to PRMES for 4 years and now i'm in middle school. I can say that this is an outstanding school with no doubt. It's amazing and it's teachers are really dedicated. I left for years but my time there was terrific. Ihighly recommend it. I also has outstanding gifted programs too. I used to be a gifted student. The school is very caring and loving too! I love this school!!

wow! I can not complain, I have had all my 4 children go to this school, from my oldest that is 25 yrs old now to my 10 yr old that just ended the 5th grade. It has very much improved alot with caring teachers and a much better office staff performance. they have very good academic programs. I really wish the school would not stop at 5th grade that it would go to 6th or better yet 9th grade. thanks Mrs. Rogers your the best.

It's a great school. I am pleased with every thing and I am one of those who think that Ms. King, the principal, is doing a great job. Next year will be better. From good to great is still the goal.

Great school. The Teachers are very good.

I have actually found the staff to be quite wonderful, and as PTSA secretary, I deal with them quite a bit. The school has a new principal, so perhaps things are changing. Certainly, all public schools face funding challenges and are needlessly bureaucratic. But PRMES has been a gem to my son for the few months we have been there. A real find.

Great academically but again a lot of missed communication or miss-understanding among staff and parents. Not taking issues seriously! Staff members do not always call back in a timely manner.A lot of improvement is needed for this school. S-J

I agree with the three reviews I have read. Academically this school is wonderful, but the attitude of the administrative staff (office staff) is extremely rude. I wanted to comment sooner, but never had the forum to do so. I hope the principal staff read these reviews, so the situation can be rectified. Jazz, Miami

Academicly this school is wonderful! I only had my child enrolled in this school for Pre-K and Kindergarten. Staff wise, I had the most horrible experience. The administrative staff that is...horribly rude and shows no concern for parental needs/concerns whatsoever.

Academically this is an exelent choice, and their montessorri program makes it very inviting. Socially though I wish it was more culturally diverse, but it has been getting better.

The FCAT 2.0 is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Florida. The FCAT 2.0 has 5 achievement levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 5 the highest. Florida considers scores of level 3 and higher to be on or above grade level. The goal is for all students to score at or above level 3.

Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
