Overall, I have been happy with this school and our principal. My overall feeling about the school has changed within the last year because of some of our vice-principal and some staff. The vice-principal is not approachable and very uncaring and it shows when you see her. Some of the staff is extremely gossipy and shows favoritism - not just with staff but parents. I have seen a lot of fantastic teachers leave the school and these were the teachers really making a difference. I feel fortunate that my kids have had really great teachers every year. Lastly, I don't agree with allowing parents at our school, sub at our school.
Principal cares very little about the kids. She's usually MIA. I do a lot of volunteer work and we rarely see her. Cafeteria is out of control. Last several weeks, they have had only one teacher supervising over 100 kids in the cafeteria. It was absolute chaos! There's one teacher that all he does is yell and bully the kids. No disciplinary action is ever taken for troubled kids so the bullying will continue unless parents get involved and DEMAND a change. Save yourself the headache and apply to another school. I've seen so much that it literally makes me sick!
This school does not prepare children and the teachers are the absolute worst. The administration moves problem children from room to room instead of disciplining them. The teachers don't teach it is amazing when 90% of a class gets honor roll but the kids don't know what they should at their grade level.
This is a great school. I couldn't imagine working anywhere else. The staff is a big family and everyone truly cares about everyone else. We help each other out and motivate and support each other. The administration genuinely cares about us all and takes appropriate actions to help us succeed. They also do so many appreciation activities showing us how much they value us. This school is most definately "Great by Choice".
This is one of the best schools in St Lucie County. The administration is amazing and the teachers are so caring. They work here not for a job but because they have a passion for education and helping children. After being in several SLC public schools I cannot imagine my children anywhere else. Everyone from the front office to facilities to teachers to administration are so friendly and truly care about our students.
This school couldn't care less about honest and fairness, they are only concerned about corporate profits and getting an "A" rating. When children are allowed to take the test over and over till they get a passing grade, students who were prepared and ready fell like why study? I can take it over again. Life is not all about do overs.
