If your child is TYPICAL or low functioning, NBE will likely meet those needs well. If your child falls somewhere in the middle with High Functioning Autism, ADHD, mild to moderate learning disabilities, or social skills deficits, they will fall into the cracks. You will probably fight NBE to get those needs acknowledged or met, all the while your child suffers trying to fit in to NBE parameters. My special needs child attended NBE from K through 5. They wait until the child falls far behind their peers, fails, or is bullied to begin to address the issues. Even then, the solutions offered are substandard and not proactive. No matter what, if your child is evaluated by NBE (or any DCPS) school for Developmental Disabilities or Learning Disabilities, insist upon an independent evaluation as well by someone who does not have money/funding at stake, as it is your right to request one. Your child's future may depend on it. My normal IQ child left NBE after 6 years reading on a 2nd grade level, and working well below grade level standards. Never did my child receive any language therapy despite my requests, but is now getting therapy in private school, and close to making B Honor Roll.

Neptune Beach Elem. has a staff of caring individuals ..... teachers and program sponsors, including scouts and patrols at the 5th grade level. I signed in as a parent but actually am a great grand mother and assist in afterschool pick up and as many fund raisers as I am able.

This school is such a disappointment. They failed to acknowledge issues my daughter had been diagnosed with and said that until she failed there was nothing they could do - even worse her 3rd grade teacher picked on her for said issues in front of her whole class!! The best decision I ever made was pulling her out of Neptune.

My daughter is starting kindergarten this year and she just loves it! The teachers here are great and make learning so fun for the kids! Even the bus drivers are awesome! I've met with most of the staff and so far there isn't anyone I don't like!

I went to neptune beach el. for 5 years and the school has great kind teachers that will give your kids a amazing experience and prepare them for each grade. It is a safe school that has many saftey patrols to whatchover the young students and a group of great staff at command. They have great teachers at each grade,in my opinion mrs.vicky kennedy is the best teacher of this schools staff and is good with all her students.

This has been an excellent school with fabulous teachers. Their extended day program has also been exceptional. I feel my child has gotten as good of sn education here,as when he has attended private schools.

This is our first year at Neptune Beach. I have one child in 3rd grade and one in 5th. I heard so many good things about this school, and I keep trying to have a positive outlook, but it's fading fast as the year comes to a close. My 3rd grader has been fortunate enough to have wonderful teachers who have worked with her and are a pleasure to deal with. And my 5th grader, fortunately, has two teachers; otherwise the year would be a total loss. His homeroom teacher is just a waste of time. I've made only one attempt to conference with the principal, but have yet, after almost two weeks, to receive an appointment. Most of the staff are parent-friendly, which has helped, but I have had occasions where a teacher and the asst. principal have been disrespecful. So I'm trying to keep an open mind ...

I have a child that attends Neptune Beach Elementary in grade K. I am becoming less and less happy with this school. I find that some of the staff including the Assistant Principal Bonnie Palmer speak to parents and students with disrespect and disregard for their feelings. They seem very agitated and unhappy with their jobs. They really need to change their attitudes or find other work. When it comes to homework for grade K there is a lack of communication. The best thing about this school is that my son has many friends.

Hi..I was a student at this school for my whole Elementary school years. The teachers are great! When they teach, the compare something to something totally ridiculous. But kids will remember these ridiculous things! They are very good teachers. And the students there are so smart! The principal is the best principal you could ever have.

Not to happy with the assisgnments in Grade K. Neptune Beach sends home plenty of flyers but they implemented a rule that grade K does not get homework. What they get instead is a calendar of random activies to do. So in any case I as the parent have no idea what subject, letter or number they are working on in class. This is hendering for me because if I knew what the activies for the week were I could re-enforce them at home. I know that Duval County has School Notes where the teacher can utilize the web to let us know the weekly activities. This would still utilize the money savings with paper but still inform us on how we can help as parents. So far not to happy.

My kids attended NBE this past year and we love it. The principal is awesome and I can not say enough about all the teachers. The teachers care about the kids and make learning fun. I am very impressed. My second grader required a little extra help in reading and math and they were able to give it to her.

We currently have a student in the third grade in the ESOL program as a result of his family's job transfer from Puerto Rico to Jax. Compounded by the fact that the child started later than the other students and that he had limited enlish. My husband, family and friends, as well as, myself, are very impressed with the english that he has thus far been able to dominate. His ESOL teacher is passionate and truly cares about her students progress and the quality of her lesson plans. As a volunteer in her class and in the homeroom, I notice that more teachers are needed and more assistance in the classrooms. The classes definately have too many students. Other than that, my hats are off to all that I have come in contact with at Neptune Beach Elementary.

Neptune Beach is a really great school. Their PTA just won PTA of the year for the second year in a row. They do many great things for the school and are very involved. There are great teachers at this school. Even though there are 1000 students at this school if you spend anytime there at all you would see that everyone seems to know everyone else. Also, the Principal is great and she is very involved with her teachers, knows the students and the parents.

My daughter has attended NBE for 3 years. Every year just gets better. It is a wonderful feeling to know my child is safe and cared for everyday she walks into the school. Thank you so much NBE.
