I have a daughter in 1st grade and she started at grade K. I'm still learning about the differences between Public, Charter and Private shcool systems. In K grade she had an aswome teacher and aid very caring and professional. Now in 1st garde she also has a great teacher who she loves and has a great relationship with parents. The only problem I find is the excessive homework they bring home every week. I do not think/feel it's necessary so much homework for a 6 yr old child. I'm very happy to ready the positive feedback from other parents which assure me that I made a good decision, so far.
I have a child in Kinder and I am so very pleased with my daughters progress.
Our son Dennis Manzi was studying in Flannegan Charles High School where he completed the grades 9th to 11th. Infortunately he didn't had the best grades during this time. So, we took the decision to change him to the City of Pembroke Pines Charter High School. That doesn't mean that it was the Flannegan School's fault. We know that the only responsible person was our son. We had a great experience with the Pembroke Pines Charter High School because the quality of the academic programs is excellent. We had the oportunity to be in some of the meetings that the School did, and we felt after that our son was in a great place to study. Also, the activities in sports, music and arts give to the students the opportunity to see other doors to the their future. This is an oppportunity to say thanks to the Principal, teachers and staff.

Great school. Great teachers. Tecachers are very nurturing, which is important because students feel welcome. Students are challenged through consistent homework & projects. Parental involvement is excellent & the key to success for all schools to thrive and for students to stay on track. I am very pleased with the quality of the school and my girls love it.
My daughter attends the Central Campus and we are very pleased. She is gifted and they do offer gifted classes based on test scores. The teachers are top notch, Mrs. Perraud is one of the most caring, unbelievably dedicated Kindergarten teachers at the school. We feel like we are getting a private school education with no cost. I believe that the parents who complain about the volunteer hours are the ones who would liek to drop their kids off at school and forget about them. Although I am a working mom I find it very easy to complete my hours each year. This school is great and I have not heard of any complaints from the parents.
I was disappointed with the charter school system for my children. Basically, they gear to the average child with hardly any accommodations for the struggling or gifted child. I took my children out (one had learning disabilities and the other is gifted) and they are getting so much more instruction at the public school. In the charter school, neither of my children would have received the instruction appropriate for them.
The school is excellent! The teachers are able to teach because the self-confidence level of the students is so well nurtured!
The pembroke pines charter school is not all that it is cracked up to be. It is fine if your child doesn't need academic help. If your child struggles, but is not failing, it is up to you to hire a tutor if you want them catch up. The curriculum consists of homework and outside time and that is it. The atmosphere seems hostile. I don't see or feel any compassion with the exception for one or two teachers. Also the field trips are expensive.
Preety good school , alot of parental envolvement . Very strict code of conduct policy's
I feel like a millionare, having my kids in the Charter System (West), the quality of education my kids are receiving is SUPER!!. Teacher's for the most part are well qualified, and those that are not, are not longer teaching at this school. My three kids are part of the Charter System and they just know one way to get educated: Work hard, do homework, respect others and be responsible with your assignments. Thanks to God for giving me and my family such privilege.
Our family has been part of the PPCS system since its inception. My son began in the 2nd grade (the year the West Campus opened) and my daughter has attended from K through 5. As both a Mom and an elementary educator, I have been very pleased with the West campus school. There are 25 children max. per class with a teacher and an aide assigned to each classroom. There are currently 4 classes per grade level which makes for a small-town feel. My children have known most of their fellow students since their first year at PPCES. Parents are required to volunteer a minimum of 30 hours each school year. This requirement helps ensure that parents stay involved with the school and with one another. This has been a BIG PLUS. The teachers are caring, nurturing individuals who work hard to meet all of their students' needs.
This is an excellent school, parent involvement is strongly encouragd, and they are definetly at an advantage with the smaller class sizes and high quality academic programs.
I'm very dissapointed with my child being 5 in grade K with way too much homework daily. The dicipline in the school is very strict. Overall, I would still keep my child here. The effort will pay big one day. Great teachers and environment. In matter of hours my concerns are heard and fixed.
School is well run and teachers are responsive to parent concerns. Offers and encourages parent involvement in education process.
Best school my child has attended. Students are held to a much higher standard. Parent involvement is key.
