We have new administration this year and oh can you tell!! They are amazing!! My daughter has been going here since last year and both classes that she has had the teachers were amazing!! Ms. Weslar and Mrs. Weinwrech Co teach their kindergarten classes and they are amazing!!!!!! My daughter truly has excelled this year and I know it is partly because of the way they help her prepare! This year we have Ms. Bowers. Again I can not say anough good about her. She is an amazing teacher and she truly loves hers kids!! I would recommend this school to anyone who asked! I love that my daughter gets up every morning excited to go to school!!!

My children attend Spruce Creek EL. I have found the entire staff, Administration and Teachers, supportive and attentive. The school family is interested in the success and well being of all the students. Our family has been apart of the school for 7 years, we appreciate the quality of the teachers and leadership of the administration.

Principal and assistant Principal found out by a parent that six children one being my own were playing the choking game. When theses children were questioned, they stated "most of the fourth and fifth grade does it" The Principal or Vice Principal didn't think it warranted a phone call to the six parents to make them aware of their children's activities. The phone calls took place four and one half days later after it was reported to the Superintendent. Shame on you.

Overall most of the teacher encountered are truly wonderful teachers but the administration staff (principal and vice principal) seem to be very unhelpful when a child obviously needs assistance. If I could choose again, this would not have been a school for my child.

This is a great school. My son is in first grade now and the teachers have accurately assessed his strengths and weaknesses, and tailored his work to his needs. Many parents volunteer at this school on a weekly basis. The teachers, principals, a guidance counselors are highly visible on a daily basis. They are out every morning and afternoon when kids and parents are arriving and leaving. There are programs in art, music, sports. The school has special events almost monthly and sends home flyers on programs and events available in the community. This school gets high grades from the state of Florida consistently.

My girls have been going to this school for 3 years now and we love it! The teachers are great and the school really has a sense of community. We are looking to move soon, but I have to make sure my girls can continue to go to this school, that's how much we like it. No complaints.

My son went here 2 years ago. The school, cirriculum, and art, music, PE teachers were great. However his reg teacher was horrible. Only taught for 2 yrs and obviously had no experience with an ADHD child. She was so hard on the kids, she would take away their recess because they forgot their pencil. She made is so difficult that my son who loved to learn and had a 120 IQ, did not even want to try anymore. Finally after, grades dropping, and having a meeting with all the teachers, one that had experience with ADHD children gave some suggestions, which helped tremendously. Excellent school, but very disappointed in the teacher.

The 2004-2005 school year was the first year for our 3 sons to enter public schools. SCES was an excellent experience for us all! Our sons had previously been in a catholic school and we were worried about education and discipline at a public school. The administration and teachers at SCEC are fabulous! Any worries we had we gone within the first weeks of school! Our kids had no problems adjusting to the new school. They can't wait for the next school year to begin!
