This is the first year my children attend Sadler, I completely hate it. They expect all of there students to understand Spanish. They have horrible organization. Cafeteria is a mess. I can't wait to get my children out of there. Can this school year end now please!!!!

During my time in Sadler (2005-2007) in 4th and 5th grade, I had the best elementary school experience ever. Moving from Puerto Rico, where the education system is worse than from Ethiopia, this school is just lake any other American elementary, except that the teachers and staff give more resources to students, more activities, and always try to make teaching differently and engaging. My sister will go for the 2012-2013 school year, and i hope that the school has changed and improved even more.

This school challenged my daughter to become a leader in the 4th grade. Here she worked the announcements, participated in Family nite, and interacted with her Principal, daily. The nurturing, diverse staff always encouraged excellence of their students. After a family nite event where I conversed with parents of international students, she came to me and said, "Mommy, I want to cure all the animals' diseases!" The following year she won the President's award at this great school. It was her first scholarship for college. Today, we are off to meet with Cornell University admissions representative(Pre-Veterinary/Africana Studies). I salute them for being a positive influence on my daughter.---Navy Veteran

Moving from Puerto Rico to Florida this was the first time my dauthter was going to interact and learn more English we were both a bit anxious. I cannot complaint. My daughter went to 4th grade and now 5th grade. The Teacher's are Awesome to work with. We as parents are constantly talking with the Teacher to make sure our daughter gets the best knowledge to prepare her for the future. She partcipated in Chorus and many school activities. She is in Bilingual classes and this has improve her English speaking skills. The Staff are always watching for the kids safety and are well Organized. Five Stars is not enough. Remember is not just the teaching the environment place a big part in these kids life. Thank you Sadler, you made my life easier.

I have a 2nd grader and my oldest daughter just graduated from 5th grade. It is a good school overall, I would like more activities to reward the students for their performance like field trips and honor roll ceremonies. The parking is an issue. Excellent technology, gorgeus new buliding/facilities. Very nice teachers and staff.

This is a level A school. Sadler Elementary has a group of teacher extremely devoted to the children. Most of them have been there for many years and still feel great satisfaction in making a difference in a child's life. It is very inspiring to see such a dedication these days. They have expanded the school to turn it into a brand new campus that caters better to each grade level (separate playground for the little ones). The latest technology is now available on site. The staff is extremely devoted to the community.

Great school! My daughter has been in Sadler Elementary since Pre-K and now she is in third grade. The teachers are kind and work very hard with the kids so they learn well what is taught.They try to work with each child independently. The Administration is fabulous and open to the parents, they are always willing to work out with you any concerns that you have.

My daughter was enrolled in Ventura elementary school last year for kindergarten, over the summer we moved to Orange County. This year she was enrolled in Sadler, unfortunately I feel as thought if she would have stayed at home and stared at the wall she would have learned more. The amount of homework given is a joke, for example: 'take out a book and explain to your parent what you think the book will be about based on the cover' - that was it! My child arrived to 1st grade knowing how to read for God's sake. This is such a disservice to our children. It's a shame that my daughter does more homework (given by me) in one night versus a week s class work and homework. My daughter is now back in Ventura Elementary school.

Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
