the good- great teachers, great teaching structure, the bad- front desk staff not friendly at all, no sanitation stations, bathrooms designed for tall adults. @greatschools.org 1200 characters are not enough to write a review worth reading, no insight is gained, this isn't tweeter, you get 1 star.
Imagine use to be a good school when a certain principal worked there and after that the school started going down hill so fast I pulled my kids out of there so fast and in the middle of the semister to. I would never advise anybody to put their child there. The school has been a D school for so long its not funny, they need to change the employees that work there. A new building and equipment gone to waste.
We will have four children in this school this year, 2 in 3rd grade , 1 in 2nd grade and 1 in Kindergarten. Our kids have attended this school since it moved to West Melbourne three years ago. We love the teachers, staff and the school itself. The teachers are compassionate and really do care about each individual child. The school is absolutely beautiful. Our oldest three children are well above average not only in intelligence but also in character. The truly care about their peers and show respect and kindness to all. I believe that is not only because of the teachers but also due to our parent involvement. We were extremely excited to find out the school would be opened this year and believe the FCAT score will improve to an A before we know it. I believe in this school, the teachers, staff and the students. People should not believe everything they hear but give this school a chance. WAY TO GO IMAGINE SCHOOLS AT WEST MELBOURNE!!!
Imagine Schools at West Melbourne is a school of choice. I choose to send my child there because they teach good character traits, as well as foster academic achievement! That's something a lot of parents and district schools have forgotten about. My child is on grade level here (according to the state of Florida) and has never gone to another school! What does that tell you?
To the teacher that posted on July 17, 2011 You said that the schoold is going through a transition...Wow you gave some excuses and said wait it takes a while? Are you kidding? My 2 daughters are at a very critical time in learning they DON'T need to waste anytime YOU got your education you should be ready so you get it together! Also THIS school has been failing for over 5 years!!! get it 5 Years!
I am a seasoned teacher with many years of experience and expertise. I have always been creative, challenging and sent homework. Reading some of the reviews makes me very disappointed as there are so many creative, challenging and wonderful teachers there. Granted there were teachers that left and teachers that came at different intervals of the year. That is to be expected when there is a shift in administration. Hold your opinions until the end of next year as that should be more telling of the effectiveness of this school. All transitions take time. FCAT may have looked bad. However, all grade levels made at least a year's growth according to all of the other standardized and district required exam's--despite this transition. Looking at the whole picture is important and not just one subset of scores and students. I know that the staff and administration care for each child in an immeasurable way and work hard toward inspiring and educating the children of Imagine Schools West Melbourne. I am one of them. The PTO needs developing. Come and be a part of our students futures. Thank you for being a part of the incredible changes and growth at our school.
It is so disappointing to see the direction this school has gone. Looking at the recent FCAT scores and talking with parents/staff has led me to question the effectiveness of the current administration. It is almost unbelievable how drastically the students performance on a standardized test has fallen. What parent would send their kids to a school where achievement was lowest in Brevard County?! How could it be possible that only 22% of students are on or above grade level in math etc...and etc...and etc. I do not know what the vision is for the "new leadership", but this school is a dim shadow of what it used to be...as the numbers show. Please get it together, The students and this community are really beginning to suffer. This is truly an embarrassment.
This school is just average. My child never seems to get any homework or get assigned any projects, and the teachers are really un creative. And the current principal is AWFUL, she never seems to do much of anything for the school! But, it is better than some schools my child has attended, and the facility is fairly nice.
