Llack of communication and interaction with parents and PTA of school with principal. Big turnover every year of teachers due to pressure and circumstances brought about by principal. As of this new school year there is a new principal, hopefully things have turned around.
Have had 3 children in this school, 2 of which are now attending Florida State University. The 3rd is still attending and doing very well. The school consistantly rates 'A' and it shows in my childs SAT scores. Parent involvement is weak but the staff is exceptional.
Palm Cove is a very parent involved school in which every child has all the support and interest from the staff. Extracurricular activities includes not only sports, but chorus, music and arts as well. Palm Cove Elementary is rated as an A+ school.
My daughter loves Palm Cove. The baseball theme really helps to motivate the kids. My daughter loves learning all of the new baseball phrases for different things. Coach Rodriguez (K) is a great teacher. My daughter has improved 100% on all of her skills. They have a quality after school program that is wonderful even though it is not run by the school. My only suggestion is to come down harder on the parents and teachers that do not follow the driving and parking rules in the morning. I was almost hit a couple of times by people coming in the wrong way to avoid the drop of line. I can tell Palm Cove is trying to correct this problem with a staff member posted at the entrance; but, I think that they need some tougher measures. All in all, we are glad our child attended Palm Cove.
palm cove has a strong leadership. The staff ( including the teachers ) are very capable and helpful. My child has thrived on the resources palm cove has to offer. There is an undeniable sense of pride and team spirit shared by parents, teachers, volunteers and staff. I was uneasy about enrolling my child into a public school for various reasons but, after my child experienced his first year of school at palm cove Iam so glad I did.
