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 a great school. My son has been there since it open the door.
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 teachers and staff. Also academia is right on track to challenge my son everyday
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.
Great teachers! Great staff! Wonderful administration. Parental involvement is a bit lacking but this IS the school's inagural year. I hope to see more parent participation in the near future but I am thrilled with the curriculum and the quality of the teachers.
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.
