This was my Elementary School. I went to this school when Mrs. Helen Ingrao was still alive and running it (May her soul rest in peace). Back then, those were some of the best years of my life ... I can't honestly speak for what's happened since I was there last, but I trust that the Principal running the show now is wonderful and doing their job well. :)

I grew up going to Eighth Street and it's a wonderful school! I wouldn't want my children going to any other school in the area. The education is challenging and teachers are caring. Ocala's only public private school!

My Grand Children have the best teachers and learning what they need to know for their age and grades. Great support system. Kudos for the teachers!

My child attended this school. I would highly recommend attending another school in the area. I did not think the staff and education experience were up to par.

I can't say enough about the great leadership abilities our principal possesses, all while letting her warmth and charm show with the students...The staff of talented, personable teachers is truly amazing...like a private school with a warm family like atmosphere in a historically charming school...we couldn't ask for more....

My daughter is a new student at Eighth Street and overall it is a very good school. The principal and teachers are excellent and I can see that she has excelled during the short time we have been here. Some of the office staff can be quite unhelpful and short with the parents. It is a very close knit school and if you are new to the school you feel a unwelcomed and uninformed..its like a 'don't tell if they don't ask' attitude. There are limited extracurricular activities. If you didn't sign up for the afterschool program at the beginning of the year, there are no options for working parent unless you opt for a daycare type pick up. 'Waiting Lists' are a waste of time - no call backs. Some parents are not very helpful as a resource and honestly, quite unfriendly and unapproachable.

The parent involvement here is exceptional, that translates into better oversight and lots of help for our great teachers.

I love this school. The staff as well as the PTO are very proactive. This school is also very good at integrating the mandatory FCAT curriculum with good old fashioned teaching; which is in stark contrast to some of the other Marion County schools that I've experienced with my children. To sum it all up, I can't think of any school that I'd rather send my children to than 8th Street!
