This is my daughter's last year at Corkscrew Elementary. I can honestly say she has had an OUTSTANDING school experience. The teachers are genuinely interested in teaching, well round and most of all, very experienced. The parent involvement is incredible and we really feel like we belong to a very strong school community. Originally we planned to send our daughter to a private school, but so glad we gave CES a chance.
CES has gone from being an A+ school to a C school. It's sad to see how careless some of the teachers have become. They need a new counselor as well. There's much to be done, but they lack the adequate staff, and programs to help the kids improve. Usually they tell you " there's no more space". My kids have been in this school since 2009, and they are not in the school of choice program.
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+
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.
