I moved to Weston from Miami because of the great school reputation. I am alittle when I compare CIE to the charter school they attended in Miami. No Spanish or second language class ( great disadvantage considering the global community we live in), dismissal is too early and grading system for k -2 is confusing and vague. Odviously these are all broward county issues, but I wanted to address. As far as CIE, their dismissal system is completely chaotic and which makes me concerned for my child's security. Their last school had the child with their teacher the whole time until they were handed to their parent and used a dash board and walkie system to move the Car lines along.
My child attends CIE. She loves the school and her teacher. My biggest issues would be A) lunch is at 10:30AM for 2nd grade B) Lack of security during release C) it seems the PTA solicits quite alot from families. I have seen actual emails and handouts requesting $ for a teachers gift. In my opinion uncalled for and puts those with less in a bad position. Outside of that great school and environment.
Great teachers and school staff. Not to happy with the attitude of some PTA members but not all of them are the same. There are people that is doing a great job for the school and as a parent Im grateful with them. I just will love to see a little more of security in the campus for the children. Thanks Country Isles Elementary. Great job!!!
I have two kids at CIE, and they both enjoy it, immensely. The teachers are experienced and and do a good job focusing on the individual student, even in a group setting. My kids are in 2nd and 4th .
my daughter just started 1 st grade and she loves her school and teacher. After a month i can say the teacher is very nice and cares about all her students. I meet other staff members from the school and everyone seems nice and helpful. I'm so pleased my daughter is part of the school now.
Our sons school is amazing. The PTA is made up of some amazing,dedicated, loyal people. Every teacher my stepson had from K-3 has been, Challenging, Interactive, Engaging, Creative, Aware, Involved with Patients. The dedication that the entire staff at Country Isles Elementary has is moving and inspiring.
Friendly, innovative teachers who truly care about developing each child's potential. I deliberately moved to this school district so that my child may has an opportunity to go to this school.
Bad teacher quality, if child not in gifted class, child is a problem, there label as a problem. I do not recommend this school terrible experience and poor quality staff they don't care if the have to teach is a problem they want the kids learned already...guess is for rate pay they get. GIVE THE SCHOOL A SAD FACE.
It starts with the Principal and V. Principal's positive attitude that spreads to the teachers. This positive attitude is contagious and the students thrive helping them to be confident about themselves. The strong family involvement and the open communication with family is priceless. This attitude continues in the after care program.
Country Isle Elementary School is a beautiful school that offers its students the very best in education as well as special events to enrich the childrens' lives. It is obvious the teachers really care and love the students. The PTA works hard to offer physical and fiinancial support I simply adore my daughter's 4th grade teacher, as well as every teacher she's had to date. You can tell that the principal, Mrs. Tonya Frost is passionate about the welfare of her students and staff. Even though CIE is an older school its creativity and commitment overcomes every obstacle. My daughter is a straight A student and that's because CIE nurtures her and helps to develope a young lady who will make a difference in this world... because CIE makes a difference in her.
My son and I love Country Isles because of their outstanding and knowledgeable teachers and staff. They are very structured and detailed oriented. They have an entusiasthic attitude that makes the kids happy to go to school and I think that is what is all about.
I love Country Isles Elementary School because of the very devoted teachers. They are excellent and really go out of their way to help each child with their individual needs. You can tell that they really care. They also accommodate parents very well also. The staff is also very professional and always helpful. The school is also very unique with its special programs like Winterfest. It is also very well maintained.
We love this school because it has a great sense of community, great layout with the central area being a wonderful outdoor quad with a garden, and the teachers and staff have been there for years and seem happy. All that and an A+ school!
Because the teachers and staff make our kids their number one priority.
It's a wonderful place for our children to grow and learn. The teachers and staff are dedicated and enthusiastic and take the schools motto, 'educating responsible citizens' to heart.
In Country Isles everybody truly cares, great staff and dedicated teachers. For my family this school is a special blessing.
Because Teachers and Staff are working hard to guarantee that they 'Teach to the whole Child' and NOT just to the Test! Parent Task Forces have been created to run independent Art & Reading programs to leave no child behind and to compensate for Budgetary shortages. We are developing a Legislative arm of the PTA to stay abreast of new laws, budgets and reductions so as to be able to be proactive and find ways to supplement so our children don't pay the biggest price of bloated Government waste and bureauocracy. We have a heavy emphasis on Recycling and are focused on using our Corporate and Community resources to make sure that every child has the same enriching programs to supplement their core subjects.
I like this school. I was a bit nervous after reading all the reviews but after half a year with my son in Kindergarten I am very impressed. I love his teacher and believe he is learning at a great academic pace. Great school!
i think this a good school,i am not to impress with the 4th grade this year.My daughter is not gifted but she is not being challenged enough. I also feel some of the 5th grade teachers donot prepare the kids enough for middle school unless you are in the gifted class. My daughter definitley did not recieve enough in 4th grade this year,i purchased a book to give her extra work.Overall it is a great school to start off,i just think it needs to step it up in the higher grades.
I can not say anything negative. Country Isles Elementary has been wonderful in my daughter's education she had special needs and the school was able to provide her with all the tools and experienced teachers to make her succeed and level up. She is going to second grade. She is doing GREAT!. Great communication with the teachers.
