Grassy Waters is one of the best schools in the area. A hard working, supportive principal and assistant principal are the backbone to a wonderful and highly effective institution. The teachers and staff simply love what they do and are the best of the best. The curriculum is very rigorous, but presented in a way that is both accessible and meaningful for all learners. And while all students are expected to meet high grade level standards, teachers expertly differentiate to provide students with the right amount of challenge to meet their needs and help them grow. If your child needs a greater academic challenge than provided by the regular curriculum, they will be given it. If they need more support in order to come to a point of independently mastering the curriculum, they will be given that support , as well. The teachers work tirelessly to assure that no student slips through the cracks while working towards their grade level and individual goals. If I had elementary aged children, I would definitely entrust them in the capable hands of the Grassy Waters family.
I really like that school and I am proud to say to all my friends than my kids attend to Grassy Waters . The Principal every year does her best I know some teachers are rude but thank's God there are some of them they not only teachers ,they are mothers and fathers for the kids.
We are so very happy to welcome back all of our students and families to another wonderful school year at Grassy Waters. We also would like to extend a heartfelt "welcome to the family" to all our new students and families. Grassy Waters is a fabulous school. Our faculty and staff are top notch. They absolutely love what they do and the children we have at Grassy Waters. We are looking forward to a phenomenal year. Sincerely...Mrs. Galindo (your Assistant Principal)
We moved here from NY state and were very nervous about sending our daughter to this school. We absolutely love it. Everyone has been so kind and welcoming. Her kindergarten teacher and the support staff are wonderful! Academically our daughter has been challenged by the curriculum, but at the same time excited about learning.
All this school cares about is the FCAT. The principal is all about her, not the kids. This school needs to offer clubs like many other elementary schools do. Since class time is so limited clubs would be an asset. The kids need to be exposed to more than just FCAT and diaognistics.
I have two kids in Grassy Waters. We moved here from Georgia which required the kindergarden class to know 100+ words by the end of the year which my son was the first to accomplish but now my daughter doesnt have that goal in Grassy Waters her goal is to learn 25 words for the year which she has already learned within the first month and a half since school started. Now I will be teaching her the other 75+ words that I feel that she should also be learning in school. I have no problem with teaching her at home but I also feel like the standards are too low. I also feel like they need to follow a set curriculum.
