Enriched learning for the children with smart boards in every classroom, computer programs that tailor to each child's reading ability, premium teaching staff that is stable at the school, unbeatable Drama program and support. After care program is fabulous as well as there are other educational programs one can enroll their child in: Dance, Drama, Golf, Spanish and Music. Media Center (aka library) is outstanding, outfitted with a smart board and ample computers ... and not to mention a very smart and kind librarian! My daughter is in 1st grade, she's attended this school for one year now. I chose the school based on the FCAT scores versus other schools in the area, but this school has exceeded my expectations in ways I didn't know it could. Thanks, Thornebrooke! Parent involvment is through the roof with a stellar PTO! There are always social events for the school organized by the PTO. Such a warm, nurturing school that is run by a budgetary genious: Mr. Daniels, the principal.

This school is excellent. Great teachers, great kids, great parents. I really have nothing negative to say. Between my four kids, I have been involved with four elementary schools and Thornebrooke is definitely the best -- even better than the private schools in the area!

This is the most fantastic school! I have 3 children. All with different learning styles. All were very accomodated. The Drama/Dance program is unbelievable. The special tutoring for my daughter was much needed. The computer software this school has is hard to match for all children. The PTO and fundraisers allow this school to be top notch. Behind Thornebrooke is a gated neighborhood. There will be nothing more memorable than my walking my kids to/from school throughout their elementary school years.

My son was staffed in the Autism program at Thornebrooke from another zone. The entire staff at this school is amazing. Each teacher has an intimate awareness of the needs of special kids and each person was willing to go out of their way to help whenever needed. This school is so outstanding that we transferred our daughter from our home school (as sibling of an ESE student) so that she could benefit from the excellent teaching and programs. Thornebrooke has given so much to our kids -- we could never say enough good things about this school, the principal Mr. Daniels, and the entire staff. They go 'above and beyond' for the students every single day! We love Thornebrooke!

My children love going to school each day at Thornebrooke. They look forward to all academics that Thornebrooke has to offer. Our family feels fortunate to have our kids attending a school such as Thornebrooke which champions our kids to be well rounded from math -> drama->reading->art!!

I love Thornebrooke for so many reasons. When my son was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome I was devastated and worried about how he would succeed in school. With the phenomenal teachers and staff at this school has made it the most wonderful experience. I have developed great relationships with the teachers and staff. They truly care about their students, they are involved. As a parent you only want your children to be happy. My younger son attends Thornebrooke on a sibling transfer since Thornebrooke isn't our home school. He is a straight A student and he loves being recognized and rewarded. The parties and goal setting they set as a class really helps these kids succeed. My experience has been wonderful.

Being new to the area and to Florida, I was initially apprehensive, especially after hearing other parents moan and groan about the education system in FL. Therefore I was pleasantly surprised with the academic levels at Thornebrooke. My little Kindergartener is taught more than what I expect for Kindergarten, and continually challenged and encouraged. The teachers are all really great; kind and caring. The other nice thing about this school is that it has the community / neighborhood feel. A number of students are children of nearby small business owners, the teachers, who themselves live in the community, etc. Even the very excellent crossing guard has grandkids in the school! This translates to lots of support for the school from the surrounding community. Parents with kids who transferred in also believes this is one of the best schools their kids have attended. Definitely recommended!

There should be more extracurricular activities. Golf was great! What about art club? computer club? etc... teachers are patient and kind and most go out of their way to make sure each child understands and comprehends.

This is the only elementary school in the Windermere area that I would even consider sending my children to. My older child attended K through 2 at another Windermere Elementary school, and I have to say that Thornebrook is a million times better. The parents are more involved and the teachers actually care about their students. The gifted program is fantastic! It is a full day pull-out style program for children with advanced learning abilities. In addition to regular classroom work for all students, there is a rotating schedule for art, PE, computer lab, science lab, math lab, and performing arts. My younger child attended a prep school in Windermere for 2 years, and I took him out of that Windermere private school just so that he could attend Thornebrooke. If you are moving to the Windermere area, choosing this school is the only smart choice.

I loved this school for my kids and wish we still lived in this area. We were there in 2004-2005 school year and were very happy with the teachers, staff, and parent support. They are big on academics and even in Kindergarten had a lot of homework but after moving to another district I see just how beneficial that was. The teachers seem so devoted and really care about the kids. The PTA is great and the parents really care about education there. You will not be disappointed with this school. It is one of the best public schools I have ever been in and I have been in a lot due to my profession. (I never worked there though). Hope this helps

My Son has been here since he was in Kindergarten, when the school opened. Now he is in third grade, and I couldn't even imagine him at another school. It seems like his learning style is so advanced compared with his friends who attend other schools. Even when I was layed off from my job,the teachers and administration helped us with food at Easter time. I do everything I can now to donate my time and assistance for this wonderful caring school.

This is the best school my children have ever attended! We moved here a few years ago from a private school up north and were surprised at the academic integrity of Thornebrooke Elementary! My now 3rd grader 'looped' from 1st to 2nd grade and it was the best experience of her school career!

We have been at Thornebrooke since it opened and have been extremely pleased with all teachers and staff. We are happy that there is Library, PE, Music, Art and Computers offered as Special areas. The addition of a Math and Science lab this year has encouraged our son to explore these areas more. The teachers do a wonderful job of encouraging the students to excel and challenge them on all levels. The Administration works well with the PTA to provide the best environment for our children. Parental involvement is very high at Thornebrooke and it showes in our students levels on tests and academic skills. We also have an Autistic program that often intergrates children into the classroom settings. This is beneficial to both the Autistic child as well as the student population to teach acceptance of all children.

This school is attended by our friends' two children and the parents are very satisfied with the quality of education. They said this school was far better than the previous public school the kids attended. There seems to be a high level of parent involvement and it is a much sought after school.
