Great principle/assistant principle involvement, both are not afraid to get up and dance or be silly with the children which the children LOVE! They get involved in the PTA and are a great support system for parents and PTA.
I transferred my kids from a Miami-Dade County School that was great and I was so worried about changing my kids from their long term school and classmates in the middle of the school year but my kids are so happy they don't complain about going to school and they love that their homework was cut to almost nothing which now they have more time for their own activities. Corkscrew staff was helpful and polite and the teachers seemed very nice. A+
The teachers and staff are very concern and interested in the students. My kids love to go to school everyday!
The staff is so concerned and caring for the children, no wonder it's an A school!!!
This school has the most above average teachers that I have seen. The majority of them have only the students best interest in mind and whole heartily give of themselves to the kids, through thick and thin. It is also a very controlled environment as to the safety of the children.
This school has great teachers yet some of the children as a result of the families leave me to wonder if my children are in the right setting
There are some really great teachers still there, hower since the orginal principal (she was awesome) has left, the school has changed. It has become more strict and military like.
I have never encountered a more pleasant, caring, hard working staff as I have at CES! Everyone strives to keep up high standards of education,while still making it a fun, positive environment. My kids love school now, and are doing great!
The school daily activities seem to differ from the school's Mission Statements presented to the Public. Moreover also your students seem to be granted greater amount of time for participating in Play or nonacademic issues instead of appreciating the uniqueness of Time which is in your hand.
I have a child who went through grades 1-5 here at CES. He obtained a strong academic foundation and is well-prepared for the upper grades. This is a wonderful school with a great staff and children. There are very few behavioral concerns. Expectations are high. I would recommend it to everyone.
I love this school, the teachers are wonderful. I am amazed at how many parents are involved.
Great School! A dedicated faculty and lovely place for my children to learn.
one of the best schools around. you always feel welcomed. my son accelerated beyond my dreams. the teachers and principle are always there for you. you want to be involved because you are so proud of the school.
My son has gone to this School as an ESE student since he began school a the age of 4. My son did not talk, feed himself, dress himself, understand the fact that he is a diabetic or what that means to him, let alone anything academic. The praise begins here...the teachers, speech, PT, nursing to monitor his blood sugar, OT, His teacher and his aides all of these people who honestly loved my son and NEVER GAVE UP ON HIM! Now last year he was taken away because there was no 'program' that fit his needs. I am NOT and neither is my HUSBAND, who usually does not get involved in matters of schooling. This year he did. We both cannot wait until we can pick our home School instead of the assigning one to my son that he has never set foot in.
On the morning of signing our housing purchase agreement, I made the effort to interview my sons new school by dropping by unannounced. The purchase agreement was contingent on my comfort level with the new school. I found the school plain and utilitarian in appearance, but met with the school councelor anyway. He was very professional and kind. He answered all of my questions and gave me a tour. We were able to meet the principal and vice principal, who were also kind. We encountered polite and quiet children of all ages. That was impressive. The classroom was age appropriate and colorfull. We liked the caffeteria seating arrangements, and we were taken aback by there being sand for the playground area! My son thought that was cool. I had a good gut feeling that this may work out for my children. Needless to say- we signed the purchase agreement following.
Staff warm and welcoming. Teachers work hard to do the best for the students.
Best school with the best teachers. I can not walk through the school without being asked by an employee where I am going and why (even with a sticker).. The fun ways they have to teaching the kids is a life long lesson they will never forget!
The students appear to be below standards as compared to our previous school. The academics appear to well below the norm. Things my child has mastered in kdg are being taught as part of the regular curriculum in 2nd grade. There is no security, I was walking around the campus and not one teacher asked my who I was or what I was doing there. Each day I was at school I never saw a parent volunteering in any classroom. The school is overcrowded and your child is a number. A private education is the only way to go in Florida.Unfortunately it is very expensive.
