My son attended this school from kindergarten to fifth grade. His kindergarten year was one of the most difficult years. His teacher and principal were a tremendous help. Every teacher he had while attending Bayshore, were amazing. They always responded to my emails and calls in a very timely manner. The principal who was there when we started, Mrs. Wilkins, was amazing. She was a true principal who really cared. When Ms. Reid came along, she did not live up to the standards that had been set forth by Mrs. Wilkins. The office staff was always very helpful. Especially, Ms. Adams. She was amazing!

Out of control!!! I was in car pick up lane and I asked a teacher a simple question. She yelled at me then slammed my car door after my son got into the car. I have never seen adults act the way these teachers do to parents. I have also contacted the school board its self with my concerns and they turned a blinds eye. We are pulling our son from this school. Mrs. Ried was very rude and spoke down to you as if you are beneath her. Run from this school.

High praises for the kindergarten grade level team and the courteous office staff, but the chaos exhibited in the lunchroom daily and the lack of authentic parent engagement opportunities keeps me from rating this school any higher. My daughter loved her teacher, music and art class and the Jazzy cash used for positive discipline. I felt her teacher was highly competent in teaching the common core standards, but classroom management left a little to be desired and I'm not certain the Positive Behavior Support training was used consistently.

My daughter is in 2nd grade the office staff is nice the ESE dept is helpful and does a great job. I was worried about putting my child in this school after some of the reviews but she is happy and so am I. They even have after school activities for the kids. Great school and it is an A school as well.

I was very unimpressed with this school. My son was constantly bullies, (to the extreme), with racial slurs, and hateful names about sexual orientation. In 3rd grade! The teacher did NOTHING, even after repeated calls and visits to the school. No one ever disciplined any student that was tormenting my son, and they ignored my requests for a conference. There is NO control over the students. NO discipline of any kind. My son is very bright, and it is a good thing, because he was pretty much learning on his own. The staff is rude, as well as uncaring. Total disaster. I got my kid out of there...so disappointing.

Very undisciplined, many uruly teachers. Some were fine, many were not. No control or discipline.. lots of bad behaviors by students and teachers. Some Yelling, screaming, condescending and manhandling kids... I liked some of the teachers but not many.

This school really needs to get their prioritys straight. Our kids are not being Supervised, and who do the teachers take it out on?? The parents(who are not there to watch the children) I know when my kids are in my care, they are supervised!

I am a teacher at Bayshore Elementary and I'm very proud to be a faculty member at this school. We have a great group of teachers who work together well to make sure that students learn every day. I am proud that we are an 'A' rated school by the state of Florida. The students come from very diverse backgrounds, but it is a wonderful challenge to watch them grow and progress. I have been at this school for 17 years and can't think of any other place I would rather work.

I was not impressed at all with this school. My daughter was placed there for kindergarten and first grade. It was my last choice school for our zone. My daughter is bright but was never challenged. At the end of the year her 'science journal' had two entries in it!! I did some observation time for college in this school and I was very disappointed with what I saw 'behind the scenes'. Lots of teachers not getting along and a total lack of direction. My daughter and her little sister will be attending a different school next fall.

It's been a while since I'd stopped by this site, but I see that more parents are speaking out about the dissatisfaction with so many issues. I must say that Mrs. Carpenter was one of the few bright spots in that school. She's a brilliant and caring woman, who deserves every imaginable reward for holding the line against the apathy at Bayshore. Mary Mosley had no interest in helping out 'middler' kids (like my little boy) who weren't the biggest problems nor the best and the brightest, just kids who needed that something extra. The new principal seems conscientious and did work with my little boy more than Ms. Mosley had.

I can not stress enough how much we disliked this school. The classes were over crowded and the teacher was overwhelmed. The district claims that the classes are 1:18 ... my sons 1st grade class was 1:30. The children never had outside time which they need and as far as gym went they really never had one. We will not attend this school next year. I just hope the School Board actually does something about classroom size this year.

My 2nd grader has come to Bayshore from White City & I'm not impressed by the school @ all. She says she likes her teacher & classmates, that I am happy about. But not much else.Also the PPU needs better planning. Cars are coming from every direction.You have to stay alert while waiting in the god-awfully long lines just to watch out for other ppl not paying attention where they are going. So, I hope to see some improvements or I'll start driving that extra 20+/- miles a day taking her back to White City!

School is 30 years old and no remodeling has been done. Looks very unattractive from the outside. No fun playground for the little ones to play.

Bayshore is a school where students come first. All students are seen as a student that can complete the work. Each child excells in the school, given opportunties to show their academic accomplishments. Teachers and staff are concerned about the student as a person first, and try to maintain a safe and inviting learning environment.

As a newcomer to florida I was concerned on the education level offered in Florida. My child enrolled as a 3rd grader, and I have been quite happy and impressed by the level of education offered. Most importantly the programs they have available for students who show to excell in certain subject. My child has excelled tremendously in Math which was one of her weaker subjects. Thanks to the faculty and diversity of programs offered this is no longer the case. Their constant demand for projects, reports have continuously helped my child evolve and excel. My only disappointment is that they do not offer a strong Art/Music classes which I find as equally important. Although Bayshore initially was my 4th choice, it has impressed me tremendously, they have prepared my child with the tools necessary to move forward

Everything is centered around the FCAT. This was my childs first year taking the test and it has been shoved down these kids throats. Our kids are learning how to pass a test, school is not what it used to be.

I have 2 boys in this school the first 2 years were wonderful with very proactive teachers, the teacheres the past 2 years spend more time with green slips and blue slips for the reason of discipline be it known you qualify for a blue or green slip if you turn to your neighbor or yawn and the teacher refuses to hear that is all you did there should be more emphasis on the good these students do, we never hear the good things kids need structure yes and they also need to learn to be proud and know that it is possible to achieve their goals in learning and not being beat down to the point where school feels like a punishment, I just finished college and I enjoyed school, children should also.

The teachers are not very active in letting the student enjoy the whole school spirit all they are concerned with are test scores they don't even act like they enjoy teaching any more just as long as students pass the required test who cares if they actually like to learn in that sort of enviroment.............
