Pride Elementary School 3

The school is great, but the PTA is other storie. The PTA is a rip off. They collect money for your Childs name to go up for they birthday. My child's birthday came and no name, you try to reach them and nobody is ever there. Then they think it's ok to put up your child's name a week later. No communication, they're too busy to call you back.

first off there amazing with bulling! my daughters incident was handled the next day! the teachers really try to help in any way when it comes to the students, but i will say nothing is ever in detail for the parents the information we get is from the kids usually,and my daughters not to good with explaining things! lol THE CAR LINE IN THE MORNING IS HORRIBLE! we live less then a mile away and if i leave 30 mins before school starts shes still late!!! one way in and one way out of the school! the worst ever!

The reason Pride is rated so highly is because the teachers load the children down with a ridiculous amount of homework each night and it's completely on the parent (not the teacher) to ensure the children accomplish everything correctly, or else we're all threatened with the phone calls, emails, etc., on being "marked down". My 8 and 10 year olds each have approximately 2 1/2 hrs every night, and it's staggering for all of us. Other than that, the front office staff--notably the secretary and nurse--are probably the worst I've ever seen. Rude and completely clueless. So far, I'm not completely hyped about this school.

Good school if you are satisfied with your child being average. Teachers and Principal for whatever reason are not motivated to push the children to realize their potential. AGP is a farce. AGP teachers are not motivated to prepare the children for competetions etc.. nor to push the children. Extreme undisciplined environment in the classrooms. Hard to believe that the teachers can allow such an environment in their classrooms. Some parents I spoke to acknowledge that their childs behavior in terms of discipline, talking to elders, attitude had degraded drastically last year. The school's success is 85% family driven, its not that the teachers or the environment are any better.

The principal and vice principal act like politicians when dealing with parents. its quite a turn-off. Teachers don't realize how good they have it and many seem a little too complacent. Newwer teachers seem to bring in a lot motivation and a caring attitude for their profession. Unfortuantely, the system chews up these go-getters and eventually breaks their morale. The PTA is extremely strong and well funded, however it was complately parent driven. There is very little teacher involvement in the PTA, however the teachers benefit greatly from fund raising efforts. Every teacher get a few hundreds dollars from the PTA in addition to special ad-hoc requests. Its unfortuante the PTA has to provde basic things this school needs, but that is more of an indictment of the District as a whole. The AGP gifted program has great math and science teachers across all grades. This school's strong FCAT scores are a direct result of the family upbringing of the students. The school is heavily Asian/Indian as well as upper-middle class families that prioritize education. The school's success is 85% family driven, its not that the teachers are any better than other schools. good school

My son enrolled non English speaking. Just in 7 months he is speaking and has a great academic progress thanks to his teacher. I am very sad that this teacher is leaving. It is a big loss to the children and school in general. It makes you think twice about the not so positive decisions of the principal. It is a shame to let good and experienced teachers go.

I think this school is perfect for my children. so far my kids had really nice and hard working teachers. I see lots of improvements in my kids every year. Yes, i see there are couple people at the front desk who are rude and i hope they get their acts together and start being little polite to parents. overall i am very satisfied with this school.

The staff and teacher are not friendly and certainly not willing to help. The information is not conveyed to the parents in a timely manner and is not clear. It is no better than other public schools.

This school has exceeded my expectations. The staff & teachers are fun and creative and my child looks forward to learning. They are highly invested in helping each child become the best they can be. I've seen my child go from quiet and reserved to participating in activities outside his comfort level and finishing with a great sense of personal achievement. Part of the success of the school is the PTA which is filled with active, caring volunteers helping make Pride the best school around. This is not just a school it's a community filled with parents and teachers investing their time and energy into helping children grow in a positive manner.
