My children had gone to private school their whole lives. Due to many circumstances I was not able to send them to private school any longer and I was very apprehensive about public schooling. My apprehensions were quickly relieved by the outstanding staff of CGE. One of my biggest surprises was to find that my children who had been in a pricey private school were actually behind when going to public. Their teachers took this in stride and both my children did very well in this new environment. I cant say enough good things about Citrus Grove. I feel it is a great representation of my tax dollars at work.
My son attended Citrus Grove Elementary in Palm City. The teachers, staff and school are excellent! I feel very blessed that my son was able to attend Citrus Grove. I wish to thank everyone, especially Mrs. Bakkedahl, Mrs. Klostreich s and Mrs. Windsor for caring, teaching and all they do to help mold our children. You are the best of the best and we appreciate you! Thank you!
My son attended this school for the past two years and has had a lot of support from staff regarding additional academic help. He has done very well and his current teacher Mrs.Klostreich is the most caring, approachable teacher we have ever met. We are so pleased that my son was in her class for fourth grade!
My son is leaving CGE for middle school. The teachers have left their mark on him. His attitude for school and learning has become infectious. His academic growth is rewarding. The friendships made by him and by our family through the school will live forever. We miss CGE!
I have two children at CGE and we love it. Amazing staff! Child-centered! My children have demonstrated excellent academic progress and have made strong friendships.
Actually the parent writing about the 24 hr observation rule should be informed that it is district policy per teacher contract that requires 24 hr notice. It is not a school-based decision.
I have a serious problem with the observation policy at the school. I must give 24 hr notice in order to observe my child's classroom. What if I want to see it without giving the teacher 24 hrs to clean up their act? As a parent I feel I should be able to observe and check on my child at any time.
Citrus Grove is a beautiful facility. The teaching staff seem happy to be there and excite the children to learn.
So very pleased with how the students did in the State testing (FCATS). Top in district for 4th grade math, 5th grade reading, 5th grade math & science! Keep up the great work!
We have 3 chidren attending this school and are very happy with the first year. Good Job to all!!!! Have a great summer.
