Our Little School....the oldest in Port Orange....is a wonderful school with GREAT Teachers, A SUPPORTIVE Principal and an AWESOME Support Staff.....the staff here goes above and beyond the call of duty all for the LOVE of their(our) children. It has before school child care, after school child care, after school programs such as Chess, Art, Chorus, Mile Club just to name a few......It has a very dedicated PTA that has Movie Night at the school, Holiday Crafts at Christmas Time just to name a few things that they do.....It is a place were you can come in and volunteer without feeling like you have to be in a clique to do so........Port Orange Elementary is the BEST!

This is a great school with great teachers. The only problem is the Principal Stratton. No one likes her, the parents, staff even the teachers. Everyone wants her to retire or leave.

I have to share a little truth here. Yes the teachers we had were wonderful but many of the other students have horrible behaviors that are out of control and little is done about it. My child did not feel safe at this school and frankly he wasn't.

Port Orange Elementary by far is the best School.They have the best Teachers, they care about their students and making sure they learn the tools they need to be successful throughout their school years. We are so lucky to have a school with a staff that care about each and every child. Thank you Port Orange Elementary!

Port Orange Elementary is run like a precision swiss clock thanks to Principal Ronca. There will be a new principal this year, so it remains to be seen what happens. Lots of parental involvement means great events like fall dances and sock hops. Teachers are wonderful and run so many extracurricular activities like after school knitting, garden club, track, and math to name just a few. The gifted program is really excellent and challenges students. Pick-up is run smoothly and is organized so well. Children are treated like individuals and are cared for like their own. It's just wonderful! As an educator, I can recommend this school. Everyone from the custodians to the lunch ladies to the principal are wonderful, especially the teachers!

My kids attended S. Daytona for a few years before we switched to Port Orange Elem. this year and there is a noticeable difference. This school offered a smaller classroom size, fewer classes per grade (so all the kids in the same grade get to know each other better)and a closer knit family environment. Parents feel welcome as much as the kids. There is a stronger PTA support, which provided more FREE/reduced cost activities for the kids; these are events that we have paid additional for, at the other school. Academics are strong, and additional help was more easily attained, when needed at this school. Pricipal is active, visible and is readily available to students and parents. Because of the small school size he seems to know ALL of his students and genuinely cares about them.

This is a small school that has a great 'family' environment. Low teacher turnover. Excellent gifted program. I'm impressed with the parental involvement.
