My daughter is going to 4th grade. The teachers and staff are excellent. I like that they get the parents involved in alot of things. The aftercare is excellent. I love this school and would recommend it to anyone
My son attends Country Isles Elementary and absolutely loves it! He is in his second year and I feel confident and comfortable with the academic curriculum and the with the teachers.
two of my children attended this school for 1-5 grade. we loved the teachers, all of whom gave special attention to our children when they needed it. the teachers were very good at alerting us to school activities and telling us when our children needed some help with a subject. the staff can be a little stuffy at times (the Weston Effect) but overall, a great school.
Experienced teachers and friendly staff. Music, art programs are very good. Safe and quiet atomosphere. Parent involvement is good.
Country Isles has been a positive experience for my daughter, largely because of the teachers she has had so far. Most of the teachers are very good, and some are superstars. She is in the gifted program which has been 'overhauled' recently. Without this effort we would have moved her to a different school, but the new principal seems to be very committed to making this school the very best it can be.
Country Isles is a good school which offers an array of programs. CIA offers quality academic programs with qualified teachers to implement the programs.
The teachers at Country Isles are wonderful. They care about my children and both of my children are getting an excellent education. This is a terrific school. Also, there is a very active parent association at the school so I always feel included and welcome to help in classrooms and in school activities. This has been a super experience for my kids and me!
My son has been through K-5 at this school mostly in the special ed environment. Now my younger son is finishing first grade. I have nothing but great things to say about this school. The teaching staff and administration are the best!
Our children have learned a lot at Country Isles. The teachers are very good and the children are behaved for the most part. The lunchroom is very scary. I have no idea how anyone eats. The tables are so dirty, as is the floor. The noise level is unbearable. There isn't any teachers to supervise and the children go crazy. Also, the teachers are very impersonal toward the parents. They show little empathy in a variety of situations. They believe rules are rules without ever considering trying to understand or hear out individual circumstances. School has become a more of an impersonal factory, everyone at Country Isles is a number not a person. The cold impersonal attitude is reflected in the front office. Don't expect to see a smile or be remembered from one day to the next. I think this school is an unfortunate sign of the times.
Don't be fooled by the Fcat scores. Country Isles is the only school in the area with special programs for kids with learning disabilities and the scoring doesnt discriminate this fact. Probably one of the best schools in Weston, Country Isles provides a healthy eviroment for growing kids. Most teachers are excellent; others fall on the average category but with a good overall support of the schools this has very little effect on the overall picture. You can sense a lot of good will among staff and parents making this school a pleasure to belong to.
I think the administration sets the tone of the school. It's a very nurturing environment for my first grader. My child's teacher this year and her kindergarten teacher always made my husband and I feel so welcome. Amazing shows put on by the music teacher. It's a school as I remember school to be!
At Country Isle Elementary my kids did pretty good. They have good teachers, the only thing is that sometimes they can be a 'little cold', if you need some information specially at the main office.
At Country Isle my kid sometimes felt he was under a microscope, he felt he should be a robot and not able to express himself several times. Discipline is perfect, but when it goes to an extreme, it can create in a kid the idea that discipline is equal to stay quiet.
My child enjoys attending this school although we have had a few teasing incidents with some 'problem kids.' I think the teachers should tighten up on the discipline.
This is a great school and am very glad to have come here. My son and I were very weary of changing schools for his last 2 years of elementary, but it all worked out fine. His 4th grade teacher was wonderful and was there for him a lot during very tough times in a tragic time for our family. His 5th grade teacher I was a little leary of (never having a man teacher before) but he is the absolute best. He makes the kids want to learn and come to school everyday. Mrs. Murray (even though this is her last year) is wonderful to the kids and parents and always goes that extra mile to get all things done for all. Our school is able to go on field trips thanks to her and all of the great teachers here that work the overtime (with no pay) so that they can all benefit from this wonderful school. I would say to all, this is a great school.
This is our first year at Country Isles. My child is in Kindergarten. We just love the school. I haven't had any problems with the teachers, PTA or staff. Everyone is very helpful & friendly. My child has learned alot in Ms. Bavuso's class and I wouldn't trade her for anyone else. I really like all the parent participation that is allowed. All of the extra activities are great too...keep up the good work.
My kids and I have been at Country Isles for four years and can only say positive things. The teachers and staff continually go above and beyond and that is a reflection of the leadership of the school. I came to Florida thinking that the only way to a good education was through private school and boy was I wrong. It is my opionion that Country Isles has taught us that a good education may be at a private school but a GREAT EDUCATION can be found at our school. Sure, I stay on top of what is going on at school but any well concerned parent plays that role. Additionally, I continually comment to our educators that I have never before met such well-mannered, respectful young people. There's obviously something going on right at Country Isles Elementary.
I was sorry to read one of the comments about a child not having a good experience at CIE. We have been associated with this school for 5 years and have had nothing but a great experience. The teachers go above and beyond what is expected of them. Country Isles is a wonderful school. You can't go wrong choosing this school for your child.
