As a parent with an education background, I have to say Coral Cove exceeds expectations. Starting from the moment you walk in, you are greeted by the principal, Mr. Bullock, who is outside directing the student drop off in rain or shine. The office staff is amazing and as an educator, I have had the opportunity to visit many schools but at Coral Cove not only do they love the children, they love their job. Mrs. Cardoso was absolutely amazing, not only did my child improve tremendously but she always managed to make it interesting and fun. The teachers for all the specials are also wonderful and the PTA does a great job in coordinating events to make it unforgettable. The cleanliness and safety of the school is extraordinary as well. Thank you Coral Cove for being #1 in everything!

I love CORAL COVE ELEMENTARY there are a lot excellent teachers like Mrs. Fernandez, Mrs. Lagueire, Mrs. Della Pietra, but unfortunately, I think that there are teachers that prefer students with their parents working at PTA, like Mrs. Garcia. She never ever gives opportunities to new kids to participate in her shows. I think it's sad, because they deserve a fair treatment.. Thank you Mr. Bullock, Mrs Lee and all administrative staff for you excellent job every day. My kids love their school.

I have meant to write a review of Coral Cove for some time, so it gives me great pleasure to give this school the highest of rankings. If there were 10 stars they would get 10. The principal, Mr. Bullock, is the finest leader I have ever met. He runs the school with a firm hand, but is fair, kind, and has exceptional people skills. His assistant and support staff take to his lead, and are also top notch. The teachers are the best anywhere. You can tell that they love working at the school and have a real passion for children. This school also offers students a great music, science, art, computer, physical education, and library program. The office staff also is very accommodating and customer service oriented. Parent in Continue doing what you are doing because you are the best!

Now that school is ready to start I wanted to express my appreciation for having such a wonderful school in our backyard. There are so many things that make this school great, but those who attend know that it starts with our principal, Mr. Bullock. He is the kind of dynamic leader who is the driving force, and who leads by example. My children have had the pleasure of having some outstanding teachers like Ms. Villarreal, Ms. Dellapietra, and Ms. D. Escobar. The community involvement is encouraged and expected. I have only good things to say about the best school in Broward, Coral Cove

Now that the year is almost over, I feel obligated to review the best school in the world, Coral Cove Elementary. Coming from a charter school in the area, I really didn't know what to expect, but from the very beginning coming to this school was a great decision. I must begin with the principal, Mr. Bullock. To say he is amazing does not begin to describe him. A great leader who is charismatic, visible, personable, and a true visionary. Parent involvement is encouraged and expected, and from my understanding this is a direct result of his expectations because from my understanding this was not the case before he arrived. The school's success and inviting atmosphere is a direct result of his leadership. Also deserving recognition is Mr. Maisel for his tireless work, Ms. Garcia, a great music teacher, and Ms. Bright who has been the kind of teacher that every parent dreams for their child. Thank you and congratulations to the faculty and staff for providing such a positive learning experience for the children in our neighborhood.

This school is awesome! Not only is it clean and organized, but from the Principal down to the teachers, I feel my concerns are addressed and my children enjoy school. The nurse and the PE teacher are too strict/serious for me, though. I only wish I would've talked to the guidance counselor before school started to place my Kindergardener in a class that was a little more advanced because, since her birthday is just a few days after the admittance cut off, she was super ahead in reading when she finally started. Nevertheless, I'm impressed that she is learning history and environmental science, along with the names of three-dimensional shapes in preparation for geometry! I did talk to the guidance counselor for placing my 5th grader, who is also a high achiever, and the teacher is awesome. Something else I love about Coral Cove is that there is school spirit, rewarding kids for good behavior, and fun fundraisers like Family Bingo and Magic Show nights.

Stellar school, principal, teachers, staff and PTA. I have been an involved parent there for the past 8 years, and can honestly say that we are blessed to have our children in their capable hands. FCAT scores in the top 10% of all Broward elementary schools and THE BEST WRITING SCORES in the entire District. Coral Cove has always been a good school, but under the direction of Mr. Bullock it is now a great school!! But wait, there's more...the family involvement is just as amazing. Sold out Family Nights time and time again with over 600 participants throughout the evenings including over 90% of the teachers and staff!

This is an outstanding school with a great principal and excellent teachers. In regards to the parent that feels that their child isn't being challenged academically, you must be new to the school. Have you gone to the teacher? This school has a high achieving class beginning in 1st grade, does your child qualify? Writing on a website wont help, go to the people at the school who can . I have found everyone at the school to be extremely helpful, I hope that helps!

I love Coral Cove Elementary School. My son has been there 4 years since kindergarten. My second son will be attending next year. We consider moving, but now think twice about it because we really don't want to move to another school. We never have any problems there.The teachers are excellent . The school counselor is awesome and very cool. The principal is wonderful and very approachable if you have any problem. He is every where and at every occasion, and always with a smile. I also think my kid is academically chalenged there

From the moment you walk on Coral Cove's campus you feel special. From the welcoming atmosphere to the exceptionally organized and arrival and dismissal procedures, there is no doubt that this is a very well run school. Principal Bullock should be the model for other principals to emulate. He is very pleasant, but commands the respect of his staff, parents, and students. Definitely a joy to see him in action. I also must compliment the support staff, most notably Mr. Maisel and Ms. Casanova for their assistance. I could also not ask for a better teacher than Ms. Santiago. Just a great experience at Coral Cove. Parents who can send their child to Coral Cove but choose a charter or private school instead are doing their children an injustice. The best school in Broward by a long shot!

Strong principal= successful school. I love Coral Cove Elementary. My son counts down to go to school every morning! The parent involvement allowed in Coral Cove is incredible. They ask for you to be there! I have had lunch with my son, unannounced. I attend school trips and help the teacher in the classroom with projects. The staff is VERY friendly and welcoming. The numerous family nights provided by the school with dinner and entertainment included are awesome. No charter school can compare. I only wish Coral Cove would go all the way through 12th grade!

This school has a new principal and it makes a significant difference in the environment. Coral Cove has always had great teachers and parent involvement. Now, parents can better interact with the principal. The previous leadship was smart but did not communicate with the parents as much.

2nd year at the school and what a difference from last with the new Principal! I love it now. Prev comment about cop- If you park illegally you will get in trouble... Cant park in the grass, dont drop off in the middle of the parking lot and dont block the carline. You do as you are suppossed to and you wont have any issues with the cop. Dont throw the race card and blame him for your own traffic violations! As far as the reading issue goes, request a conference with the new shool staff to adress the teacher being so rude.

I do not like this school. The staff is unfriendly. The cop that directs traffic is rude to parents unless you are Latino. I have tried to approach him on many occasions and he is unapproachable. Not good for morale. My child has problems reading. His previous teacher, in front of him and me said in passing that she knows he is going to be trouble someday. He is black, what kind of message is that? It appears that they only cater to one crowd. I think their admin staff needs to be rethought. They seem to be unqualified. How many children are slipping through the cracks? Cant wait to move. We moved here because everyone rated this school and Glades an A+--sorry, dont see it. I only see the children without difficulties and parents with money excelling.Moving East and putting my kids in Private. Public schools here are no good.

Coral Cove is an excellent school. I think there are a few small issues, as there will be anywhere. However, the staff work really hard to address any issues and they do welcome parent involvement. The PTA/SFA & SAC boards are all very strong and encourage parent involvement. Great school overall. My only negative is that as a single parent I sometimes feel that the parents that are very active at and able to attend every event do not give the working parents a fair shake sometimes (like SAC meetings @ 5:30 when work ends for most at 5). But I don't think it is intentional. So thumbs up! :-)

The school teachers seem nice but the administration seems to be way too strict and unfriendly. The principal is unfriendly and the staff rude. I think its's the teachers and the PTA who are helping with the school's ratings.

Coral Cove has a core of strong, dedicated teachers led by an administration that continues to strive for excellence in education. An A school again this year, the overall quality of the teaching staff is impecable. The teachers are actively involved in student development on all levels. They have a strong character development program including anti-bullying, SOAR and character trait recognition by grade levels. The school has a variety of activities to encourage family involvement and learning such as Target math night, science night, family home projects, etc.The staff and administration have clearly defined objectives when it comes to safety and discipline. Parents are actively involved in the progress of their child(ren) from daily notes in agendas, to phone calls home for both praise and concerns, to progress reports and bi-annual parent teacher conferences. Parents are encouraged to become actively involved to facilitate teamwork and assist those parents already dedicated.

The principal is unfreindly and unwelcoming. parent involvement opportunities are kept to a minimum in order to shun parental input and interaction. However, the teachers are the heart of the school. Although most of the time conversations are overheard and the staff seems unhappy with what is going on behind the scene. There seems to be an unspoken preference towards some teachers more tham others from what parents can see and what we've heard. My child seems to have have grown academically despite these problems due to a very dedicated teacher. However, I also feel that gifted and high students are not catered to as they should be given that that states gives schools money for this exact purpose. The curriculum for gifted and high students is the same as all the other students. Challenging material is rearely given.

This is my son's first year at Coral Cove Elementary, and I have to give high marks to the Kindergarten Team of teachers, especially his teacher, Mrs. Edwards. This was a wonderful first impression to the school system because of Mrs. Edwards. The only disappointment that I had this year was that my son only had P.E. once a week, and daily in the classroom for 15-20 minutes. I believe that learning is very important, but I also believe that the children need to get out and release some of that energy on the playground. I think that they are better able to remove the obstacles that are hindering them in the classroom by going out and exerting them by exercising. The safety was very good at the beginning of the year with the Police Officer being there all the time, at the end of the year I never saw him.

Great academic and extracurriclar programs.However, P.E. is for 15 minutes only and they do not offer Spanish at this time. All classrooms have there own bathrooms.The classrooms are locked once the students enter and all the hallways have security camera.A plus when your concerned about your childs security/safety.

Last December, the music teacher, teachers, and children prepared and practiced very hard for a Christmas event. It was by grades, and the last group (The Chorus)was a combination of all ages. The Principal instead of been happy and proud that the parents attendance was 100%. She told us to leave after our children were finished singing because of too many people? We as parents never get to see or interact with each other, and specially enjoy what our children and teachers proudly had prepared for us. This woman was in a hurry for us to leave before the event was even over. She was out of order to say that. This school needs a person with character, motivation, and passion - A Leader- where parents CAN get involved and participate with the teachers and children. You can even get a smile from her. The school needs and deserves a change soon.
