Wow, what a huge difference. This is a great school. The teachers don't put up with any nonsense. This is the first school where our child has NOT be bullied. The teachers, principal and parents are completely involved on a daily basis. This school treats the kids like family, not a number. I know what the lesson plan is each day and the home work is each night. I know the grades each day. Each child in the middle school gets an e-reader and many of their books can be accessed on-line from the e-reader or at home from a computer. They have a ton of sports, clubs and activities for the kids to participate. There is tutoring available after school at no extra cost. The school is clean and the kids care about keeping it that way.

Royal Palm Charter School is an excellent school. It is Kindergarten through 8th grade. I have been involved with the school for several years and I only see it getting better and better. The education my children have received there has exceeded my expectations! The teachers, staff and principal strive to make education a priority. There are several after-school clubs available that help enrich and encourage the children. If you are looking for a friendly atmosphere where your child will excel look no further. The parent involvement and support help make this school a great school! If you want your child to have an advantage in their education over other schools in our area, this should be your choice for your children s school!

As a teacher, I couldn't be more proud to be part of the Royal Palm team. Our principal and staff go out of their way to provide an excellent working environment. The ability to teach to our students' individual needs coupled with continuing education opportunities make going to work a joy.

I am proud to tell everyone that my children attend Royal Palm Charter. They cater to each child's needs and truly love each child. All the teachers know and care for all the kids! All the students are caring to one another, it's amazing to see the older students interact and love on the younger students!

Royal Palm has a beautiful new building with cafeteria, library, music, and art. I am so thankful my child could continue her advanced education at Royal Palm with their middle school program. The teachers and staff are exceptional and caring. Feels like a family atmosphere, my children enjoy and feel safe here. I also love that Royal Palm offers many after school clubs and sports.

I could not be more proud to represent Royal Palm Charter School as a Kindergarten teacher for the second year in a row. From the moment I arrived on campus I knew this place would feel like a close-knit family and I was correct! The teachers truly care about their students and take the time to differentiate instruction so that all students have a chance to flourish at their own pace. Every student is guided toward their goals and provided with the assistance needed in order to reach their fullest academic potential at Royal Palm. Our Principal, Mrs. Shannon Shupe, has experience teaching multiple grade levels and thus, brings an attitude of hard work, dedication and an understanding of different family situations to her leadership role. She is easy to approach and will surely go out of her way in any way she possibly can for her staff, students and parents. Our Assistant Principal, Tresa Vernon, also brings many years of teaching experience to the table as well as experience being a Principal herself. This allows her to assist in the daily running of such an amazing school with grace, poise and confidence. Come see Royal Palm for yourself! You won't be disappointed.

I'm not understanding why a teacher would write such negative things about their place of employeement. I sure hope you are not one of my children's teachers.....I can't imagine if you are that unhappy, that you would provide a quality education for mine or anyone elses children. I have only been a parent at Royal Palm for a few years....and the things that you are talking about are inaccurate. I have never felt as if my children were not safe in the pick up or drop off line. My children love to eat outside and if the weather is not adequate, then the boys and girls eat in their classroom. There are no perfect schools, but the positives sure outweigh the negatives at this one. My children are getting an excellent education and that should be number one on any parents list.

School's education standards have dropped drastically. Math and Science are dramatically behind current education standards for grades 4th 7th.

- Does not have adequate parking. - Does not curtail bad student behavior or enforce their own rules and punishments. - Provides an extremely dangerous student pick-up environment. - Lunch room is outside, so students sweat while eating and deal with bugs. - Mathematics education is deplorable! Sixth grade still learning decimals. - No science books and not enough books to go around in other subjects. - A lot of the good teachers have left to other schools.

I have nothing but positive feedback about this school. The staff and teachers are great, and the classes are fantastic. My son has excelled exponetially since we moved him to Royal Palm. Why this other parent would rate it one star because she got a speeding ticket is ridiculous. The police are out there because Royal Palm is right on a busy road with minimal parking. 1+1=2. Maybe take some classes yourself?

This school is a good for your childern to have a strong learning background but as far as the police sitting in front of the school waiting to ticket the parents every month what gives no other school has this going on execpt for Royal Palm Charter School. Is there some kinda of a deal going on with the sherriff's department and the school's owner.

As a staff member I appreciate being a part of an atmosphere where my thoughts and concerned are valid. I appreciate just being able to teach and not jumping through hoops. I'm allowed to look at each student as an individual and plan my days as needed, not by what day/time it is and what the county said I should be doing...but rather by what my students truly need. I love the Core Knowledge program and appreciate being able to give my students a much broader education rich with history/literature and science. There is much more to life than just math/science.

If you look at the recent teacher turn-over, it says a lot about how it has been run. More than half of the main teaching staff is new this upcoming year. Even the teachers hate it.

I should give certain teachers a much higher score. Overall, the teachers are fantastic. The whole scores drops because of the pricipal and the management team. She (the principal) is extremely petty and childish. She talks about employees, students, and parents behind their backs. He (the manageron site) is a bully. I have seen him, standing over a teacher, yelling openly using profanity while students are present. The teachers put up with horrible treatment! The extracurricular activities are great, except for sports- nearly nothing (excpet soccer) when they can force a teacher to take on the responsibilty. The principal of 2010/ 2011 has managed to ruin the morale in the matter of ONE year, causing many teachers to leave or strongly look for other employment. If you want a loving school, this ISN'T for you. She makes this place uncomfortable. The other reviews must have been made before the current principal took over. PS: Most students don't fail in a charter school because of funding. Repeating a grade voids the funds the school gets from that particular student. Its all about money- not necessarily students drastic turnaround.

I currently have a son enrolled in Royal Palm and would never move him any where else. My before going to Royal Palm attended Country Beginnings and loved it. He went to a public school for a little while and let's just say i was not happy, he was failing and I was concerned. I moved him in to Royal palm and now he is on honor roll and also in the advanced math class. I would recommend this school to anyone that asks and think it is a great place for a child to go. My daughter goes to Country Beginnings right now and when she is old enough she will also be attending Royal Palm.

I am the grand mother of one of the students at the elementary while the other attends the PVK class at the day care(Country Beginings) next door. The daycare curriculum is excellent and her teacher is fabulous. My grand children are top students excelling in reading, possessing the ability to 'think things through' and conquer math all within in a nurturing environment. The elementary is exceptional and my other grand daughter is reading 2 grade levels higher. I can't say enough about the quality of the attention and movtivation she recieves from her teachers. She uses the computer at home on the PBS educational web site and programs I have purchased for she and her sister. They don't miss a beat not having a computer at the school. I love the drop off system in the morning with patrol guards and adult staff supervision. Top of the line school!!!

After leaving public school and enrolling in Royal Palm, my child became outgoing, interested in school work, enjoyed going to school, and increased his learning interest. The teachers are excellent, caring, and truly wish to make a difference in a chils's life. I hope he now finds this in the middle school we have chosen. It is true, they have needs, like a lunchroom, but this does not play a big difference in learning.

Wonderful School! I agree, much better than the public schools in this area. They keep you informed of everything concerning your child and the school & I could not ask for more. The kids are protected with a gate, unlike the public schools and what does a school nurse do anyway? They give the kids a bandaide or call the parents, just as this school does. So you don't have to have a nurse at the school for the children to get a very good education, as they do here.

If you have a child that is in the middle academically and excels in a small school environment then Royal Palm is a good choice. Unfortunately they do not have the resources to accommodate the children that are not in the middle academically or children that have special needs. They have a very limited gifted program, no school nurse, no cafeteria (kids eat outside on picnic tables), no computer or science lab, etc. The teachers and administration are great but the facilities and programs are quite limited.

This is a great school, in a small community with wonderful teachers and administrators that care. The quality of the curriculum is excellent, parent involvement is high. Best of all the student to teacher ratio is low. Your child gets the attention they deserve. There are a few things lacking, but everything else makes up for it. I highly recommend this school if you are a parent who is not as concerned with the convince of your school, but rather the quality of the school. Your students will be safe and well educated here.
