my three sons have been in 4 different schools in two years, and this is the 2nd of the schools that they all love, (the first is in NJ.) No school is perfect, however you know when educators are doing their best to accommodate your children, as well as when their hearts are in what they are doing, and when it's not. The principal is a strong man, disciplined, committed, friendly, and driven. I know that he is taking the school to the next level with the attitude that he has. There are a few teachers that need some work, but that can be worked out. You can always ask to change your child's class. I just had to have my children reassigned to this school because we moved out of the district, and they accepted our assignment, this made my family and I extremely elated that the boys would get to stay at the school that they love.
I am in the same boat. My son attends a nearby charter school: that is absolutely HORRIFIC. Nevertheless, I was looking into transferring my child here. Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks.
My daugter is in 3 rd grade and attending at JCG elementary, im considering sea castle elementary to transfer both of my daugthers, but I need feed back and recomendations on what to do. Thanks
Sea Castle is a good School with great potential!. The principal needs to focus in the first grades (kinder, first grade) because they are the foundation! and not only to pass the State Test. Give more resource and help the teachers!!!! they need it. The principal needs to have a better comunication with the parents maybe in that way he will promote more parents involvement in the school.
Sea Castle Elementary School is a Good School. My daughter is in Kindergarten and have been a wonderful experience for me and her. Mrs. Chavez is an excellent teacher because she teaches from the heart making the learning process from the kids more easy because they want to learn. I wish the Broward County System stop the cutting of more teacher's jobs, our kids needs a good education and this situation only will put more stress in our teacher's. The Education should be a top priority in our country.
Sea Castle Elementary is a very good school. My daughter has attended for the past 5 years. The new principal this school year seems very caring and focused on the students academics and also the family as a whole. I am very impressed to see that he attends the PTA meetings each month. Together we can improve our school grade C to a B or even an "A". We can do it, I have faith.
More than 15 children under one teacher.Not offering enough help for all students.Non-communication within administration.Not a safe environment for kids:cleanliness and security.
Excellent school, excellent principal, teachers, safety and dicipline
Sea Castle is a great school. But the lack of teachers to students makes it very hard for the teacher to concentrate and stay on task, with helping students that have difficulty understanding what they are being taught. I understand that the school is over crowded, and Mrs. Eckhardt is trying her best to keep the school at an average grade level. She is an excellent principal and I hope she continues to be at that school as long as my daughters attend. I would like to say thank you Mrs Eckhardt for being such a great person and role model. Oh! by the way please update the parking area for parents to pick up their children at the front of the school and the buses at the side where it is impossible to get to) I do believe it would be better that way.
Sea castle is the best school in broward. My daughter is attending this school sence she was 5 years old. The teacher are great. I have to thanks mrs. Collins, mrs. Findley she was not only a teacher also like a mother to my child always kept me inform about my daughter no matter what it was we love you , mrs.Mears and ms lopez always keeping a eye on my child. The office staff are very friendly. The dicipline in this school is great also the safety. Thanks a lot for always keeping me inform.
Sea castle is a good school. I just wish they would teach so the kids can learn instead of just teaching to pass the fcats.
Both my children have gone to sea castle elememtary since they were 5 years old. sea castle is a school where the children come first. Each child is encouraged to do their personal best without being labeled as the smart or dumb kids. The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child. The principal is kind and knows each child by name. She is a great example of a leader and I will miss seeing her everyday as my son will be graduates in the next 4 years. Thank you sea castle for bringing out the best in my children and giving them the encouragement and confidence they need to go out into the world! ' God Bless
My child is in the first grade and this is his first year at Sea Castle. It is too soon for me to critic the academics of the school but the traffic and parking are a nightmare!! There are very, very few parking spaces for the parents and when your child is late, it takes at least 20 minutes to find a parking and process them through the office. This school needs a better system than what it has in place now.
As a parent of 2 austistic boys, I am very disapointed with the cluster program. Additional funding is made to this school for having this program and In my beliefs, I don't think is being used soloely for these children.The children of these class's are extremely seldom treated with the same respect and and dignity as 'regular' peers of same age.There is a few wonderful cluster teachers, BUT.. Not enought for my children to return next school year.
The school has a very good principal. She really cares about the schools and the students. The staff is always helpful and coorperative.
I have a child in the 3rd grade and one in kindergarten. I receive weekly reports on both of my children. I can walk into the office with any concerns and all my questions are answered. They stress and encourage parental involvement. They have an after school academic camp which has really helped my 3rd grader in math and reading. I m sure we'll be an 'A' school next year.
