I am a parent in the gifted program at Everglades Elementary. I had transferred my daughter to this school from her home school for the full time gifted program. The teachers are very professional and great with the students. It is a GREEN school which is very close to my heart, and my child's as well, we recycle everyday! It is a fairly new school and I was a bit worried, but it is run very well by the administrative staff and parents are encouraged and welcome to participate in school activities.
Im a student from this school. I started her in 2nd grade. To be honest this school is fun but not that edcational. They only give you worksheets. Some of the teachers are really rude and mean. There is a lot of bullying in this school. So i suggest you guys not to go to this school. They have a very Strict dress code. No hats or hoodies even glasses! Some of you guys might know me. Im Britney N. The only good thing about this school ia the partys. I have been bullied all school year starting from 2nd s Grade. Thats why im homeschool for 5th grade. I will be going back to pulic school for Middle school. So please do not go to this school.
Our daughter just started Kindergarten at Everglades and so far we have been very impressed with how organized they are and the warmth and welcoming that we have felt from the staff and teachers.
This is my daughter's second year at Everglades. LAST year was GREAT, this year, not so much (there is a new principal). My daughter is in first grade (gifted) and has at least an HOUR of homework every night. Students have silent lunches from time to time...silent lunches are used as punishment and if cafeteria too noisy--The principal leaves up to teachers to decide. In art class, all students have to whisper. In math lab, they play games on the Ipad (math vs. zombies). Communication between parents and teachers is poor. Very disappointed in administration and their lack of leadership.
When the school was being built we were concern because at that time my child went to Equestrian Elem and was zoned for Everglades Elem. WELL! I say I am VERY happy that she is attending this school. The whole administrative team including the principal is GREAT! I think the teachers really like working at this school which makes a difference in teaching your kids. Volunteering does help the school in alot of ways! So volunteer if you can!
Best Elementary School ever. Wonderful and awesome prinziple, great and absolute to 100% motivated teachers.The kids love it. A great place to volunteer.
