I love this school. Last year I had two children attending this school for the first time. My oldest son in 3rd grade and middle son in Kindergarten. I am very pleased with the communication from the teachers and the encouragement both boys received. I now have all four of my children and my niece in this school and I could not ask for anything more. My only hope is that when I move out of state that I can find a comparable school.

School is fine for mainstream students but not so great for children with minor to moderate special needs or struggling students. No tutoring that I am aware of is offered until 3rd grade (you know for the all important F-Cats) until then your child will be left blowing in the wind feeling like a failure and beginning to hate school while your fighting for your child's educational rights. Contrary to other reviews parent involvement is not encouraged unless you consider being told over the P.A. System every day for 2+ years to leave campus encouragement. The silver lining is that there were some teachers that I dearly loved. (Gaskell, Rankin and Rodriguez)

We moved here from Germany and we have never seen a school like this: wonderful and caring teachers and a great principal. Everybody cares so much for the needs of the children and our kids love to be there! For us parents it is wonderful to see the progress in the education and we are very proud to be part of the Manatee Cove Family.

My son attends Manatee Cove Elementary and I love this school! The Principal is wonderful, she cares and takes the time when there is an issue. She is always available to the parent. I feel that my son is ina safe, loving and great academic environment. And last but certainly not least, Manatee Cove has the best Extended Day Enrichment Program. Ms. Duckworth and her wonderful staff, from Ms. Lynn, Mr. D and Ms. April always have safe activities and of course they help the kids with their homework. Go Manatee Cove Elementary!!

I love our principal, Mrs. Gonzalez. She is the best principal I have ever worked for. She works very hard to make sure our school is the best. We feel like a family because of her. The principal, assistant principal, students, and teachers at Manatee Cove Elementary are the best!

I am a parent and a teacher at Manatee Cove Elementary. All of the staff truly care about each other and every student. My son loves going to school, his teachers, and learning - his only complaint is that it is not open on the weekends!

Manatee Cove has a gifted program for my daughter. I'm so happy her needs are being met at this school. The school she attended last year didn't offer this program and that's why we chose Manatee Cove. She thinks her teacher is great!

I love my daughter's school because each day she comes home with information for parents on one side of her folder and homework assignments on the other, the calender shows me an indication every day on how she behaved in school, whether it be with a color-coded marker or a sticker, I am always kept up to date with everything that's going on, upcoming events, etc.... and everyone I have met so far is fantastic!

The teachers are excellent!! However, the parent involment needs much improvement. The PTA needs help!! They need to focus and try to invole the community, such as local businesses to participate at school functions, it would help promote their business and benefit the school, have fairs, dances, get more organized, school shirts, hats, lets show some school spirit!
