Odessa Elementary School2

The administration is not supportive of students with special needs and teachers were very restricted program-wise with what they could teach. My child did much better academically and socially once we switched schools.
We are very happy with the progress my son made in his Kindergarten year. He is challenged every day and responds very well to it. The facilities are very nice, clean and modern. All the staff and teachers are very friendly and have a positive attitude. The school is organized and run well. There is a lot of activities presented by the PTO organization which makes the kids look forward to something every week. I really liked other parents that I met that have their children at this school. They seem to be very interested in their children which is a key to success at any school. My son cannot imagine going anywhere else!
This is the second year my child has attended this school, and we could not be more please with the teachers, staff, volunteers, principal and assistant principal. Our child has exceeded our expectations, and we know that they will continue to achieve great success. I highly recommend it.
Odessa Elementary School (ODES) is an A+ school! Teachers work together closely as a team. Administrators work hard daily to maintain a family-like environment. They expect the most out of us, teachers, because they work extremely hard themselves to keep it an A+ school. Children/families are provided with clear and focused learning goals in every subject matter, and we analyze datas to differentiate instruction to meet the needs of all students! My children come to this school because it's the best school in Florida!
My daughter started as a Kindergartner at Odessa and is now finishing up the 2nd grade. Each year has been wonderful! The teachers are supportive, caring and understanding. The school recognized my child's abilities and encouraged her each step of the way! The principal has been easy to work with and runs a tight ship. We are moving this summer and wish we could take the school with us. Thank you to all the staff at ODES for everything!!
I can't say enough positive thing about Odessa Elementary. My daughter is in her second year there and loves it. From the Administrative staff to the teacher to the volunteers, they are all great. The education my daughter is receiving is beyond my expectation for a public school. THANK YOU to all the staff that makes this school so awesome!
We just made a cross-country move from Utah to Florida and were extremly concerned with the school(s) system; we heard horror stories. Come to find out, our childrens district (and individual school) is superior to that in Utah. We have more communication between faculty/staff to parent than ever before. They have a lot of 'community' events & programs to keep the families interactive. Our children are learning at a much steadier pace, and we don't feel like he is being rushed into learning. Their reading & vocabulary are exceeding our expectations! I cannot rate the principal leadership too high because we haven't had too many encounters with her - that's a good thing :)
Wow! What a great first week my children had at Odessa. They are new and the support from administration and staff is overwhelming. My oldest, who finds school easy, has been challenged with HW already! They both love their teachers. The Principal knows her stuff and does what is best for all children. Thrilled to be a part of the areas newest "A" school!!
I am very disappointed with the quality of education provided at Odessa Elementary. My child did not receive the behavior or social support she needed as a child with special needs. Administration is appalling, unsupportive, and rude.
