This year my two ADHD boys had awesone teachers. Mrs. Law and Miiss. Gendron for second grade. They improved their writting, reading skills. Thanks to the principal for listening to my request about what was best for my children learning education. Looking foward for a much better coming year. Thank you to the secretary and the counselor. Great team work.

My daughter attends this school. She is in kindergarten. She has only been in this school for about a month now and has been teased and bullied since she started. Every week there seems to be an incident when the kids are unattended as in lunch time or bus. I'm currently looking for a new school for her because I find that a five year being picked on is unacceptable especially now she thinks she's fat!!! Although The staff are friendly along with the principal and guidance but when I told them what was going on they seemed to care but yet nothing has been done about any of these situations! I'm pretty sure it's just the area we live in. The kids here are not nice at all. I have tried to contact the teacher 3 leaving letters in the communication binder each student gets and calling the front leaving messages with them too I still have yet to hear from her teacher. Not happy with this school as of right now

I wish my oldest child attended Anclote when he was in Elementary school. The teachers and staff at Anclote are amazing. Each and every staff member goes above and beyond for each student, including cafeteria help, custodians, etc. What impresses me the most, is the relationship the teachers have with each other, and this flows over to the students. It is so refreshing to hear my child say what a great day he had! The teachers are always helpful and willing to conference with you anytime. I truly believe that having my child at Anclote has been a blessing! Keep up all the great work Anclote!!

I wrote a great review last week. Maybe because I have never really dealt with the staff ( only the teachers). The front office staff is a joke. The older woman with long hair is the rudest thing I err have come across. I won't up there asking for one of my kids records and mid sentence walked away from me and started talking to someone else. The car loop woman RUDE!!!! The staff that helps the car loop day there during the rain with their umbrellas but didn't walk the kids out so by the time my kids were in my ban they were soaked. Don't get me wrong te teachers ( not including Weitz) are amazing. The staff including Teacher Weitz are rude and need a new profession!!! I was driving my kids 45 min to that school everyday so they could keep te wonderful teachers but no more.

Anclote Elementary is a great school, my 3 boys attend this school and the teachers and staff have been so great to them, my boys love waking up everyday and going to school. They make learning fun for them and reward them when they hit milestones. Thank you Anclote!!!!! Huntington Family

I have been extremely happy with the quality of education my daughter has received at this school. The teachers are excellent, communication is great and there are lots of special activities happening. My daughter also attends PLACE before and after school, and I have been very happy with them too. I cannot recommend this school enough.

We came back to this school from Athenian Academy. That school did not push my children to do their best. My daughter is way behind and hopefully with the wonderful teachers here she will be helped. My kids love this school and are very happy now. Glad we decided to come back !

We moved here in the middle of the school year last year and my daughter was a little bit behind and the teachers and staff at Anclote worked hard every day to make sure my girl was ready for the first grade. I am greatful to them all!

I have one child in Mrs. Burnes first grade class that I had to bring in in the middle of the year from Athenian Academy because she was not learning or growing at that school. they let too many kids fall through the cracks. It was the best choice that I could have made. Mrs. Burne cares and pushes my child to do her best. I will have more of an outlook in time to come, but so far the over all experiance is good. I like to see that a teacher actually cares about my child.

I have had 4 children attending this school over the last 6 years and currently have 3 kids still enrolled their. I have been incredibly disappointed in the quality of the school since the change in principal. Most of my children had Miss Byrne, Miss Hennen and Miss Tomaino and I think they are one of the best teams of teachers out their. They are absolutely outstanding and push the students to acheive their best at all times. Overall, in the last few years with the change in administration, the quality of education has dropped from outstanding to where the children are basically being taught to pass the fcat with a disregard for giving them an overall education. I am very concerned for my children as they head towards middle school and if we had an option to move our children to another school we would.

We had a great experience at this school thanks to the great teachings of Miss Byrne, Miss Hennen, and Miss Tomaino! They were great! They challenge my kids like never before. We are so sad to leave. The safety at this school is awesome, I think it is harder to get into then Fort Knox! Thank you for a great experience. The Cannino Family

Both my sons attended Anclote for school year 2003-2004 and it was great. I had to move and was unable to keep them in the school. My son was in 2nd grade and was not able to read before attending Mrs. Griffiths class now he is doing so well. If it was possible I would have never taken them out of the school. My youngest was in Ms. Tomaino's kindergarten class and got so many awards that now he has his own award book. Thank you all, you have a wonderfull school.

My Daughter Melane has been with Ms. Byrne & Hennen for 2 years straight(Anclote Elementary School Teachers). They have done an outstanding job challenging our Daughter to reach new levels, and others alike. Teachers like these should be in the educators hall of fame. Anclote should be proud of them as educators. Anclote has an excellent curriculm. We are honored to send our Children to Anclote Elementary.
