the school is a good school but my major complaint is the drop off and pick up. There is one teacher outside drinking coffee looking everywhere but at the cars, she does not guide traffic or help the kids get out of the cars in the morning. also when picking up the teachers who stand with each grade also do not assist the kids. Another complaint, as a parent you have no access to your child during lunch. if you want to have lunch with them, you are not aloud. My daughter went to a field trip and i was not aloud to go even as a chaperone. She is in kindergarten and i wanted to help but me along with all parents are not aloud. For being in kindergarten i have no idea what she is learning or doing in school, thank god my daughter is very smart and loves school and loves to learn but they do not update parents, i literally had to chase down the teacher to schedule a conference so i can be up to date and still walked away only knowing my daughter was doing great, there is no information there and they dont help parents involvement with there kids education. after this year she will no longer attend this school. an A school is because of the FCAT does not mean its a great school!
Excellent school. Teacher's are of experience and take time with student's regardless student teacher ratio/class room size. This school is of a variety of ethnic backgrounds which makes it really wonderful for my kids that are bilingual. If you want your kids to have a better education, this is the school.
This school is awesome! I am a parent and a teacher. We are the best-kept secret in Tampa. Our staff is outstanding. The students are well-behaved. The parents are very supportive. Our dual language program gives students a chance to learn spanish with native-speaking peers. All three of my children have attended Alexander.
