I was part of the infinity program from kindergarten to 5th grade. The teachers are amazing, and they prepared me for FCAT and middle school. The art teacher helped me get into magnet programs, and the science experiments were crazy. I also liked the classes that were a mix of grades, I was with 5th graders in 4th grade. There were a lot of clubs for an elementary school, like FFEA, News Crew, Art Club, Chess Club and Band. The only thing I didn't like is the faculty and office staff; they were never very helpful to the younger kids. I would still recommend this school to any parents considering it!
This school has some great teachers. However, like any other school it has some not so good teachers. The administration is not very accomodating and does not return phone calls in a timely manner. I have also been less than impressed by the school's gifted program. There idea is more work at a faster pace, that is not gifted! The after school care program has been the most disappointing. The school website claims they have all different programs and activities from homework help, games, arts and crafts. That is a blatant lie. The after care teachers are very nice ladies but lack the ability to assist the students with their homework for the most part. The only games the kids play is the free for all that goes on in the cement slab called a playground.
My child attends the Infinity program at Ludlam. It was tough getting her in this year with cutbacks and staffing delays, but well worth it. The Infinity program is like having a private school within a public school. My daughter has really excelled and has learned so much in just 3 months. I am very impressed with the curriculum, the teachers and the principal. The work is very hard, and she has a lot of homework, but she seems to be doing really well. Her report card came in with all E's!!! Way to go Ludlam. Parents should really consider this school when choosing a gifted program for their child. Excellent!
My children who are in 3rd grade love the teachers and the school. I have been pleasantly pleased as well. I only wish the police were still able to be there in the afternoon when I come to pick them up. This was a sad change that occurred this year.
