I have asked the school (Suncoast Elementary) to test my daughter for a year now so they finally tested her for a 504 based on behavior which she does not have and did not test her for her learning disabilities and I was told a student has to fail 2 times before they get help with a reading specialist. I think they have failed in the No Child Left Behind Act. I am still trying to have her evaluated for learning disabilities here in the state of Florida. I have to say the state of Indiana is so much more advanced and on top of their struggling students. Its sad to say but Florida chooses to let their students fail and increases the risk of dropouts.

Suncoast has great teacher and staff. My daughter loves Suncoast Elementary so much that she gets upset if I have to pull her out of school early for an appointment! When School is not in session she misses her teachers.

The school administration is horrible. Anyone that has had to deal with the school administration would agree with me! The teachers are great however, the principal is doing the school a disservice by not holding the bad students accountable.

I last posted on October 28,2008 when my twins began attending Suncoast Elementary. It is now the end of the school year and I can say that we had a great school year! They were challenged with the schoolwork and learned a lot. We only got to experience 5th grade at Suncoast but I think I would have been happy in any grade at this school. I thank Suncoast for making my twins feel comfortable since they came from NJ and were nervous going to a new school. If your child is a good student they will excel at Suncoast!

The administration at this school is disgusting and the staff is almost as bad. The Principal has a non shalont attitude of I dont care; its not my problem. She is oblivious to the problems not only with the staff but also the students. There is constant bulling that goes on between children and a lack of supervision by the staff. A complete and total house cleaning needs to take place at this school and it needs to start with the Princpal. There are much better schools in this county.

I agree with some of the other reviews. The administration in this school is horrible. I have had several issues and have called the office and they never return calls.

Administration at this school ignores behavior problems. Someone needs to question why so many teachers have left.

The principal is holding the school back. Her comments to me often defy logic and reason. When presented with factual information she repeats her own falsely drawn conclusions. Either she believes that repeating an incorrect assumption over and over somehow makes it true or she is so used to having her employees agree with her she feels she can just blurt out anything she wants. I don't see how a good teacher could tolerate her for very long.

My child attended this school for 2 years. I am so glad that we transferred to a magnet school in the area. The teachers were not the problem. The administration is terrible. In addition, there is a huge lack of parent involvement. If you search hard...there are much better schools in the area!

This school is wonderful! I am a parent of a special needs student and also have two other children that attend this school. The administration and the staff are fantastic. They go above and beyond in many ways. I am amazed that they know most children by name are aware of their siblings that attend. Communication is wonderful between parents and teachers as well as administration and other providers at this school.I can not say enough good things about Suncoast Elementary.

Faculty and Staff are extremely professional and dedicated. They go beyond what is expected in order to have the students learn to their maximum level.

When my daughter started Kindergarten she knew all of the basics ie. alphabet, colors, numbers, spelling, and letter sounds, although only a few in her class started school knowing this she wasn't held back in any way. Her teacher provided her with work that was in her level, after a month and a half of school she was reading to us. The teachers and staff are very much on top of everything that goes on and are very involved. Great communication! I also feel safe leaving her at school everyday, they have a good system and no one is allowed into the school, gates are always locked. Couldn't have asked for a better first year for our family.

I have had 3 children attend this school and all are doing well in middle school and high school. Suncoast gave them great basics. I do believe that the more a parent is involved the more their children succeed and Suncoast gives parents many opportunities to volunteer and stay involved.

I've had great experiences with my kids (Kindergarten and Second grades). However, the announcments that the teachers pass out to the students to bring home to their parents are passed out late. I feel that the kids are safe and well educated. I have yet to meet the principal also.

First year at Suncoast- kids in my child class were ill mannered (child complained of items being stolen from desk/bookbag) and bullies. Academically my child did okay despite the mean spirited kids and teachers/coaches ignoring kids sometimes when they needed assistance.

My child started at Suncoast this year and we are very pleased. It is a clean, safe enviornment that has a family feel about it. I like that they have PE every day and I like that they wear uniforms. The teachers are kind and friendly and seem to enjoy being there. That is more important than anything else.

my child went to Acushnet Elementary in Massachusetts. The school is brand new and has excellent reviews.

I feel that the quality of academics over the past two years has changed for the worst. I've had children in this school for 7 years with no disciplinary issues regarding them. There was a change in principals which I feel has contributed to a great deal of these changes. I have decided to pull my last child from the school. I felt that would be in his best interest academically and socially. As a volunteer I felt the school was very political and was divided.

The teachers at the school are excellent. Faculty and staff get along great. If I had graduated and was certified already, I would be working there.
