Transferred my child here from another school in the district since moving,big mistake! This school is far behind times in comparison, they do not have the updated technology to teach kids for the future. I requested a conference from the teacher and after 3 months of not hearing from the teacher we called in. The class room was in complete disarray, stacks of papers everywhere and completely unorganized. Teachers dressing like their clothes come from a thrift shop, how professional is that?. The front desk acts like its a bother for you to ask them anything. This is a poor excuse for a school in general. I would recommend parents make the drive to another school if they are able.

This school is not a good school my son Was so behind the whole time he was there. We recently moved him to another school in the same district 30 minutes out of our way but he has improved 90% and actually has teachers and administrative staff who cares and he loves it. I would not recommend this school.

I'm a grandparent of a child in this School. This School doesn't test for ADHD/ADD or Dyslexia. This maybe why our younger students have inabilities in reading, writing, classroom behavior and many other important areas. I know several 5th grader in this school that started here in Kindergarten. They have been held back at least 3 times each and still cannot read or write. I have spoken with their parents and heard the story's of fighting to have the child tested. The parents are never told to take the child to their Doctor for ADHD testing. As in my daughters case my grandson that has Dyslexia and ADHD is finally getting the testing he needs because of my research. He is 9 years old in the 1st grade unable to read and still writing b's & d's backwords.

Thank you Dr. Nichols and Ms. Cottingham for making my son Luke feel comfortable during his kindergarten and 1st grade schooling. It is through Dr. Nichols leadership that makes Myakka City Elementary what it is. There is a 'team' effort at this school. 'Together Everyone Always Makes it happen'. Ms. Cottingham and Ms. Kinyon have made learning a positive and fun experience for my son and I am forever grateful for this. Myakka City Elementary is the best kept secret in Manatee County.

Excellent school! My daughter struggled in another school until we moved her here, and in just one year she excelled beyond grade requirements. This is partly due to the incredible teachers at this school who make the environment warm and friendly and fun. It's a smaller school out here in the country, about 18-20 kids per class. No big city traffic or masses of people outside of school grounds. A beautiful place for a positive start for your child! We love this school!
