Map of Sanders Park Elementary School address.

April 29, 2010
Sanders Park Elementary has become a great school for Pre-K through 5th Grade kids in my community to attend. I believe that Dr. Cone, the current Principal, has almost single-handedly turned the school around by updating safety protocols and student awareness/recognition programs. Even the PTA has stepped up their game by keeping all parents, not just the members, aware of related activities. The teachers are very proactive in communicating with the parents. They help me as much as they help my son, when I express concern about any subject or scoring I may not understand. But, best of all, Sanders Park strongly encourages the parents/guardians to become a part of their child's education experience through volunteerism, mentoring, PTA, chaperoning & school/community events. I love this school for the tenacity shown and exercised to bring their level of standards up to 'excellent' and I appreciate the effort, concern and love this school's staff & teachers have shown in maintaining & exceeding this level of excellence. Go Eagles!!!

This school has made such significant accomplishments this year alone and has shown that with hard work, dedication and good teaching, all things are possible. I was very pleased to see the school take its 5th Grade students to Washington DC and host a Spelling Bee competition among neighboring elementary schools and win! Ive attended all events this year was very impressed with how Dr Cone moved the school. Today I saw the release of the FCAT scores and the school contines to move. This is attributed to the teachers and administrators. Great job!

I was so proud that my son attended Sanders Park Elementary this year. He has grown by leaps and bounds! Thanks to the teachers and administration for their support and guidance. My sons previous school did not help him at all, but when he started at Sanders Park he soared and he loved going to school!

What good is a letter grade if you have children that still run around with no discipline, no respect for teachers or any adults for that matter? The teachers of Sanders Park deserve MUCH MUCH more than the leadership being provided by Dr. Cone and the VP Lewis. She has been at this school too long and holds no child accountable for his/her actions. She is a playmate not a role model. The teachers at Sanders Park deserve to go to work with a sense of safety and security for the well being of their students and themselves. This is not the case at Sanders Park. I will be removing my child from this school, for a safer one. Broward County should truly look into how a popluation of severly misbehaved kids could really go from a D to and A in a year. It just doesn't add up.

It is great that the students here moved the grade from 'D' to 'A', the ability has always been there, but former Principal, Robert Gibson, constantly harassed his teachers, forcing high teacher turnover. Then new Principal Fabian Cone has allowed these teachers to teach and the 'A' is the result. However he has failed to adress student behavior and safety. Students constantly misbehave, no matter who is around. They don't respect authority. Opposite his opinion staff moral is low. Assistant Principal, Jounice Lewis treats adults like children, and ignores student misbehavior. She has been Assistant Principal for 5 or 6 years and still has not learned how to correctly do her job. Dr. Cone needs to put as much focus on things outside of the school grade as he does on the FCAT grade. If this is done Sanders Park will be the greatest place to work and learn.

We moved from a double D to an A in less than 1 year! Awesome job faculty and staff. We made the highest learning gains in Broward County Schools this year and we were number 11th in the state with the highest gains.

Their only concern is a letter grade. They let children get away with anything and everything.

The school has great potential and has been in the community for decades. I would love to see the school add more extracurricular activities-not just FCAT activities- because this breeds parental involvement. This also helps to foster better team atmosphere, school spirit and pride for the students, parents and faculty. Many awesome kids come out of Sanders Park Elementary and go on to do great things. The school should be proud of that and do its best to increase the potential within its students and retention of its staff.

The quality of the academic programs is less than at many other elementary schools in the county. Teacher quality is good, however, the administration is incompetent and out-of-touch with the community. Extracurricular activities are limited. Safety is a concern, as there is little consequence for the serious misbehavior of students.

5 years ago this was an excellent school to send your children to, since the arival of new Principal Mr. Robert Gibson, the school has been run into the ground. There is no discipline no leadership and no true goals.
