I am a student, when I bought lunch the other day i found two bugs in my salad. Yesterday when i was buying my lunch I saw strawberries, BUT there was a hair in it. By the way no body did anything EXCEPT for a nice woman ,Mrs.Fink. She works there and is a mother of a child at my school. I was hoping you guys would do something about it.

Love reading all the comments left by the staff, clearly the only ones giving great ratings. This school is a joke, used to be a great school in the 90's, I went there now Im embarrassed to say my children attend this school. No parental involvement, teachers are too busy for communication, PTA, what PTA. Every teacher both of my kids have had were first year teachers at that school, none re-hired! both kids last year didnt even a teacher for a portion of the year, one quit in the middle of fcat prep, Seriously?

I have two kids at SSES. I have issues only with the way they deal with kids with disabilities. I have had my child tested and diagnosed with aspergers. The staff and teachers do nothing.I have been told by professionals that he should be on a IEP and the school will not help. I am bring this ti a higher level to get the help. I'm also told my child is a distraction and immature. They need to listen and work better with theses kids in stead of throwing them under the rug. I have now had enough and so has the doctors we work with. I have help in the works!

I have nothing but great things to say about SSES. The teachers and admin are so caring and wonderful people. My daughter has loved every single teacher she has had there. She is going into 5th grade and I know they will prepare her for middle school. I have no doubt she will be ready at the end of her year! I know she will miss it very much. She is becoming a wonderful young girl that truly loves school and learning. Thank you teachers for all your hard work and dedication!!! You truly are amazing!!!

My son has absolutely thrived at SSES. The school doesn't have the same reputation as the Trinity schools, but the teachers are really top notch. The caliber of families has changed in recent years, as most are in the free/reduced lunch program. Feedback from the teachers indicate that parents have gotten very defensive when informed that their children's progress isn't adequate (blame FCAT and other standards, not the educator). It's also a school that takes on children with certain emotional and other handicaps, which can bring down overall test scores. I've met some of the specialty teachers and really applaud their compassionate nature. My son has had 15-17 children in his class every year. Some have been spent on the Spanish team, which I highly recommend. The children in his class are so sweet and come from wonderful caring families. The school does not have a gifted program, which is the only downside, as others have mentioned. Otherwise, I'd happily put all my children into SSES. The teachers are resourceful, compassionate, and people I would happily entrust my children to.

Don't get it twisted....Average 13 students per teacher. My child was never in a class with less than 17, and up to 29 students, all the way through (k-5).

My kids have enjoyed this school. I have had a few concerns, one teacher in particular that I felt wasn't strong enough - but this year 2010 has been excellent - particularly the 5th grade teacher my daughter had this year. My biggest concern was the school nurse and her lack of compassion towards the kids or skill in telling when they are truly ill- my kids were continually sent back to class when they should have seen a doctor - that means others were too - no wonder strep throat went through the place repeatedly.

My 17 year old daughter went to this school when she was in elementary school. We had a couple of concerns while she attended there, but overall it was okay. My 6 year old son just started Kindergarten this year at Seven Springs Elementary and the school has held him back tremendously! We also have had a lot of other concerns and have decided to begin to homeschool my son for 1st grade. The Principal and Teachers are not willing to listen to Parent concerns or ideas. SSES was a C School a couple of years ago and it is obvious that the school needs improvement in a lot of areas. There is also law enforcement officers on the property a lot and that's also concerning. Why does an Elementary School needed so many officers? What kind of problems are going on after I leave my child there?

This is an excellent school. They are very concerned with providing the best education for the children. They dont have a gifted program which is the only drawback I've found with this school.

I am a parent of a kindergartner at SSES and have had great experience with his teachers. The curriculum is different from pod to pod within the same grade. As far as the safety at this school it is very lax. They have installed a fence out front with gates but they do not use them during the day. But come 6:30 pm they are shut and locked. I have brought up this issues and it was addressed with the principle and received 3 days of compliance. There are issues with picking up your child in the afternoon. Anyone can take a child and the school would never know. Please take into consideration the saftey as well as the accademics when chooing a school.
