I hate this school. You will be lucky to get a good teacher. Let's not talk about the third grade teachers who don't check homework folders, yet, mark in the planners they didn't do it. The god awful amount of homework each night. The principle is way to strict with the kids. And oh my god!!!! The car line. 30 minute wait for morning drop off and afternoon pick up. Thankfully, we will be moving!!!

I think that the teachers and staff work with the students as well as we can. Like every company there are some that drop the ball but as a whole we have a GREAT staff.

I will warn you not to take your child to College Park Elementary for the following reasons... if your child is bullied on the bus or school they will not do what is to be done for your childs safety. I had this happen to my child on the bus and i waited for a responce back from the school and noone informed me or called me so 30 days after christmas vacation i had to call the school myself and was told by the dean that he has alot of stuff going on day to day and forgot to call me... huh??? how does that happen so obviously they do not care about bullys in the school. I moved from up north and was told to get immunization forms transfered to florida state forms and i did then 2 months later get a letter from health dept that my childs immuniztions are not up to date.. well apparently the forms that the school submitted was missing the last immunization form so i had to go get that done all over again or my daughter would not be able to attend school.. and if your child has a problem like crying in school cuz they just moved they will give you a problem and then throw it in your face months later. this school needs to be shut down.. I will be calling the board and a lawyer.

No communication between teacher and parent. No notes, she is forgetting to check his homework or even forgetting to send one. I have no comments on that. We moved here from North where school system is better, never had a problem with my child. Now My son don`t want to go to school, cry every morning, complaining about teacher that won`t help or explain the task. will have to change the school...

College Park This school is wonderful for my daughter she is a honor roll . Teacher and staff are great. But if you have a student with a learning Disability this school is not for your child I actually had to pull my ESE student from there to go to Horizon Academy . But overall School is GREAT for Child without disability

We are a work in progress and I must say it is getting better and better. We have a lot of dedicated people on the staff and people that strive to make it a better school, including a fairly new administration: dean, ap, and principal. Give us time, we are getting there.

This school has it's faults but not many. My kids miss going to college park. There is so much interaction, caring and fun environment. The micro society is awesome. I think every school should have it. Two of our very favorite teachers are Mrs Betty Sheffield...she is a wonderful, loving and creative teacher and Mr Picha...which unfortunately we moved towards the beginning of the school yr, but he is very caring and sincere to your childs needs. If you have a child that will be starting here...ask specifically for one of those teachers I mentioned. You will not regret it. They are the kind of teachers that we need in every school.

This school has a cool program called MicroSociety where kids can run a made up business and earn micro money to spend in their society.

Even though College Park puts emphasis on regular attendance and discourages tardiness, I think there is a lack of communication with the parent and staff (i.e., principal, asst. principal or whoever is in charge of correcting or intervening if it appears to be a problem). If your child is tardy/absent more than the norm, the staff does not intervene to ask questions or if there is anything they can do to help solve the issue. A threatening letter will be sent to the parent and any attempt to speak with the principal about it, is unsuccessful because he will not make time to sit down with the parent to help resolve this issue. Maybe it is a minor issue that he/she may suggest to ensure the children get to school on time. I think College Park lacks some direct communication with parents from the upper staff. I also think not enough enphasis is put on FCAT preparation. Due to the extreme importance of your child's success with the FCAT, more practice and prep. is necessary. The strength of College Park is the Microsociety and student participation in the work setting. I think this program is a real success for the student's self esteem and prep. for the 'real' world. The teachers/nurse and dean are all great! Maybe the principal can take some lessons from them.
