Teachers are very good and are deeply involved with the students.The administrative staff is doing a great job in raising the bars..
Endeavor Elementary has a wonderful and caring staff. Students are given every opportunity to grow and excell. There are numerous challenges set before them...children who are motivated to learn and succeed wiill do very well there. Currently there is a very dedicated PTA and many events for parents to participate in. Parents however should think about giving some of their time...especially if they have little ones entering the school. Children value it and so do the staff.
I am proud of this school, and thank God my daughter started her kindergaten in such a good school, my son will be joining big sis soon!!!
This school has everthyng but a hearth. It is like boothcamp, not a loving caring environment. Sad experience for our family...
You have to give Ms. Kimble and Couret a lot of credit. They really kicked it into high gear this past year. The Reading Plus requirement was a genuis idea. Parents of Endeavor students can be proud that this is the best elementary school in the Hunter's Creek area.
Yes, there were some bumps in the road with the change of Principals, which is to be expected. Mrs. Kimble has found her way, though, and this has been a great year for the school. As a teacher, if you are a positive, team player that has the best interest of the school, students and community in mind, you are certainly amongst her 'favorites.' Negativity and constant bucking of the system are not tolerated, and I am just fine with that!
As a former teacher at Endeavor, the change of principals from Mrs. Vitale to Mrs. Kimble was the biggest mistake for the school. Mrs. Kimble is an authoratative leader that places favorites among staff. I am glad I no longer work there.
I have mixed feelings abou this school because I've had children attend it since day one (when it opened) and it's changed - and not always for the better. My children have have generally liked their teachers and they have friends there. I'm afraid, though, after looking at the recent FCAT scores that we might see Endeavor drop to a 'B' school. There are some things going on, and yes, I've volunteered lots of my time throughout the years and voiced my opinions, which weren't always welcomed.
My boys have attended Endeavor for the last 2 years, and love it! They have had wonderful teachers who have been very open to my concerns and suggestions for their academic needs. Changes have been made, but all organizations go thru changes, a school is no different. If you are unhappy then you MUST get involved and stop complaining. This school welcomes volunteers and now more than ever needs your help to continue the positive changes, and fun activities that were offered this past year. Please relize how lucky the kids of Endeavor are to have teachers and staff that care. Let's get ready for a great 2008!
Changes? Yes, there were changes. Let's see...school spirit was all over the place. From the front lobby that was always decorated in a fun way to the new car magnets to the introduction of new school colors. For the first time, we had a Father-Daughter Dance, a Mother-Son Night of Magic, a Fall Festival where staff members and Administration participated in a Pie-Eating Contest, an Olympic-Themed Reading Celebration, a Science Club that attended the Science Olympiad, a Performing Arts program for the younger and ESE students, the Mileage Club, a beautiful 5th Grade Graduation Ceremony, and that's just what comes to mind right away! This is a vibrant school, and I look forward to seeing what this next year holds for its students (which include my very happy children!) Thank you to everyone who has made all of this and more possible for Endeavor!
I am so happy to see a postive comment about Endeavor. Thank you! It's extremely sad that the only people who decide to put comments on venues such as this one are those who need to complain and say negative things. I think that there are many parents that are happy with Endeavor but just don't take the time to voice their opinion. I am also pleased with the education that my children have received at the school. Yes - there have been many changes, from the Admistration team to the teachers but you can not dwell on how things 'used to be', instead welcome and support the changes and help the school to be the best that it can be. To those who have had negative experiences, then challenge yourselves to change your opinion. Be involved, it does make a difference.
Endeavor 's a wonderful school. I have a 3rd and 5th grader. The teachers are fair if you give them a chance. They push for the kids to do better. If your child is not lazy and wants to learn, then Endeavor is the school. There new Science program is very good. My kids are happy and that makes me happy.
Endeavor elementary has some good teachers. The administrators need to pull it together and become real leaders for the entire school community - students, teachers, and parents. This was a rough year for my son at Endeavor and I'm glad he's goingt to middle school next year.
I am also in agreement with the past two postings. My son was the first kindergarten class at Endeavor and despite the growing pains it was a far cry from the chaos and apathy now familiar to my daughter in kindergarten. I don't care for the current administration and couldn't agree more about their attitude towards parents. We will actually be moving this summer because of the school. Just to inform you all, the assistant principal called me just before spring break to tell me that my daughter had found something on the playground. What she found was a bullet. Of course she didn't know what it was but never the less they waited until school was out before the call. Would have been nice if I knew before she got in the car asking questions. I could rant on and on but should spare you all my soapbox...LOL.
I agree with u totally. You put in words what I have been experiancing
My G-daughter went there from K-4, she loved it.As a parent I don't think there was a better school around. Loved it.
Endeavor is one of the best elementary schools. Mrs. Vitale was wonderful - and now Mrs. Kimble is coming into her own. I think she is doing a great job. She is very visible and very accessible. She always returns calls - and I love that about her. In the classroom I am always pleasantly surprised how every child is assessed individually and given the appropriate curriculum they need. I don't know how the teachers do it - in one classroom, you could have several different students working at different levels in the same subject. Classroom placement is decided by what is best for the individual child. Consideration is given to the child and their interests and personalities. It's always a great fit! The admin staff is always helpful and courteous. I love our school.
Endeavor was a wonderful school that encouraged teachers, students, and parents. The new administration is running off many excellent teachers and staff and making decisions based on what would be best for them. The students used to be the center of this school. Unfortunately, this is no longer true.
Endeavor is a good school with the potential of being a great school. I think that the new adminstrators are going to be a good team that will help acheive this goal. I have had 3 children go to this school so far and they love it. More parent involvement, better communication and more school actitivies are what this school needs to make it great.
Ms. Murry has been the absolute best teacher my daughter could have asked for. Endeavor has been a great school.
