The Sandpiper is a great school, I have a 7 year old daughter who simply loved the enviroment of school ,a very good reputation and lot of activities to involve you with your child education.
My son is going into the second grade at sandpiper and is doing well. The teachers he has had have been great, his first grade teacher even dug out second grade books to keep him challenged. The PTA is very involved in the daily activities at schooland I am sure the kids benefit from that.
Sandpiper Elementary is a fine tuned school. Sometimes they can be overly strict but it is always for the good of the children. I have been pleased with all of the teachers that I have come accross and felt comfortable leaving my child everyday. The office staff is organized and professional. Everyone follows through and there are lots of parent involvement opportunities.
Excellent school. Academic programs are outstanding. Overall Excellent.
my son had gone to this school since he was 5. We have since moved out of the state of Florida in his fifth grade year, in December 2003, and even though we do not live in the area anymore, I want to say that Sandpiper Elementary School is a fabulous school. We have had such a wonderful experience. My son became an honor roll student and the teachers are awesome. Might I say that the Sandpiper Staff, everyone, all the gals in the office, including Officer Eddy, are super awesome. I wish them all well and we miss them all very much.
Sandpiper is a really great school, with great teachers, a very friendly office staff and a very committed and productive PTA. This school is one of the best in the area. All schools are feeling the effects of budget cut backs and having to hire more teachers due to class size reductions, but even so, Sandpiper has been very resourceful without losing the overall quality of education received here! I've been with this school for 7 years now and I wouldn't trade it for any other. And, we have one luxury over other schools, we are under-enrolled so we are not overcrowded like one of the comments made by a mom on this site.
We are new in the area. I am not impressed by this school. There is only one counsellor and no registered nurse on duty when school is in session. My child needed to speak with the counsellor. She is not available, has too many other tasks. I had to look outside of school for counselling. There does not seem to be enough help, my child is getting lost in the crowd and she needs extra help. We come from a small town in New Jersey where the principal knew each child by name and was always visible. There is a big difference here.
Although we are very involved in my child's activities, homework, reading at home, computer skills,etc I have seen a lot of progress accomplished, and I know the wonderful staff ,the teachers are responsible for so much progress.
