This school has changed into a middle school. All the teachers are nice and I think I got the nicest teacher in this school.

I have been so reluctant to review this school because feedback can be so subjective. However, I am so done with this school/district/county that we are in the process of moving and have found this website so helpful in my new search that I figured I would assist those planning to have a child attend this school. This is an elementary school with very little to offer their students. The perception is that everyone is poverty stricken, lives off of the government, and is uneducated. Therefore, when they do finally put together an event, it is done at the last minute and half- hazard executed. The previous principal was disengaged, would not return calls or emails. Under her tutelage, the school went from a B to a D. As a result, a new principal was put in place. I called today to see if I could pick up my child's FCAT results and was told the principal has yet to pick them up from the district. I think that should give any parent a good sensation as to what they can expect. We moved to this area when the economy affected everyone with a job. Home prices were practically free. The saying "you get what you pay for" pretty much sums it up.

There is great leadership at the school. My child has made friends with kids and has been exploring positive learning, new discoveries and getting A+ grades. The school atmosphere is diverse and multicultural. It's special!

The principal problem. Without the proper leadership, the school does not stand a fighting chance. There are barely any standards in this school. Children aren't treated with respect by some of the support staff. There are reports of unsanitary conditions like cockroaches found in the lunch room and the classrooms. Security is at a bare minimum. Gates are left open and unattended for an extended period and the front desk is left unoccupied for atleast 5 minutes on occasion. The principal is usually absent and lacks effective communication skills. There are no set guidelines on release times. Rain puts a wrench on dismissal procedures. They either hold the students or release them at the front by the cafeteria without any notice to the parents waiting at the side gates.

Principal is very rude. Another issue is the car rider line. It is out of control and needs to be addressed! I despise it..

The principal was not friendly, she did not address the parents at the school functions. My child has attended several schools due to relocation of our home. So far this has been the worst of schools. The principal is there just for the name because she is hardly ever seen. I tried to talk to some of the teachers and they never answered back the emails or calls. Out of 8 teachers only 2 responded.

Quality of students keeps declining since they are allowed to use foul language. School staff dont care about it. By far the worst school ever! Principal is in a cave all day and never comes out. Students are left to the mercy of the bullys, and there are lots of bullys. Overgrown kids that failed the grades a few times and they run the school like a jail. Do not try to get your kids in this school.

This school was terrific last year and the faculty worked well together. This year with a new admin in place there seems to be absolutely no discipline in place...my son is scared to go to school because of the lack of consequences for some of the students.

The school has done an incredible job with the students and parents they have to work with. They improved their school grade because of a strong administration. Their P.E. teacher is the best.

The brand new facilities and the new principal are exceptional. The principal and vice principal really cares about all the students. They really worked hard this year to improve the school from last year and they deserve the credit.

This School need help!!! Mr. Ibarra the principal of this school have poor management skills. He avoid face to face meeting with parents and when he finally meet with parents he don't take responsibility for anything and blame everything on the teachers and staff. My son go to school there and I have no complaint with the teachers they are great. The Polk County need to put Mr. Ibarra on a Action Plan and demand an improvement from him. If this doesn't happen they need to replace him.

I was just amazed at how terrible this school actually was! Total lack of support from the county to correct a dire crisis! The principal (Mr. Ibarra) is wonderful BUT he is only one person. The rest of the staff from county level down was just shameful. My child was terrified of his school and teachers. We moved only because of this terrible school. The whole county of Polk has no idea how to run a school! DO NOT send your child to this school!
