We moved here in March of 2013, my daughter finished 1st grade here, and completed second, and is now in third. I'm happy to say that we've had nothing but great experiences with all her teachers, the curriculum and overall academic experience here at Aloma. The only reason I gave it 4 stars, is because of the parking. There are so many parents, and so little parking, so it's getting a bit crazy on even nights. Aside from that, this is a great school!

Aloma is a wonderful school! This is my son's first year and he loves it. He's made lots of friends. The teachers are great, the principal is very involved and friendly. There are opportunities to join the garden club, music club, etc.

I went to Aloma Elementary School for first grade in 1967. The school was brand new then. For the first part of the year we were in portable classrooms in a field to the left of the school. My teacher was Mrs. Anderson. She was or had been nominated for Teacher of the Year. She got us interested in reading right from the start. I'm sure the school has changed since then, but I credit Aloma Elementary and Mrs. Anderson to getting me off to a good start. I didn't stop school until 1988 when I received my Masters degree.

MY children recently started attending Aloma. The school is currently getting a long overdue makeover and I am looking forward to next years improvement. Overall the school is above average due in large part to the principal Dr. Hawkins. The kids that attend are from a variety of ethnic groups. The teaching staff has room for improvement. Not satisfied with the science program. The gifted program is wonderful. The teacher has been there for over 7 years and is motivated. Parents at this school are not as engaged so the PTA has room for improvement. On a scale of 1-10 i would give it a 7.

I have had all 3 of my children at Aloma. 2 of my children have autism and the school went over and above to accommodate them. 2 have since moved on to other schools but, the youngest is in 4th and loves school. This school offers wonderful music programs and has a large number of parental volunteers. I highly recommend this school. The teachers and staff are wonderful!

I went to Aloma as a child and my daughter who is in middle also attended there. I have two boys and one has been there since Kindergarten. He is now in the 4th grade. He has been a straight A student all along. The other one is in Kindergarten. I wouldn't have them go anywhere else. Aloma is a safe and great place to have your child attend. The teachers and Principle are fantastic!

My boys are going to Aloma. I have noticed improvment since the year before. I feel there is more attention put towards the students. The 0 tollerance for bullying is taken seriously at Aloma. There is constant communication with the principle and the parents. One thing I would love to see though is a refurbishment to the school. Maybe administration can step up a little as well in sprusing up the halls and common areas. Lets see some paint on the walls and stensiling. Lets make it a more harmoneous walk to class. A little TLC goes a long way.

Aloma Elementary School is really a safe, friendly and dynamic school. The principle is working very hard in school projects and the teachers are creative and enthusiastic in education. My child likes this school very and he is in gifted program which can develop his talents in thinking and explore class. Parents has good communication and interaction with the teachers. It's a great A school in Winter Park.

Aloma is a awful school. my kids attended for the last two semesters and have done poorly. Their previous school grades went down to failing teacher communication to parents in school agenda is awful how can you help your child when the teacher gives you no indication of what that child needs help in. Until you see their grades and it seems that they have spent over 30 hours in class and you are told the last two weeks of school that the child may be kept back. There was no extra help subjected by the teacher. The principal there is not well informed and no summer program is available.

My niece attended in 2003-2005 and I thought the school was lacking in the teaching department. My son now attends and I like it even less. There is very little instruction given to students to take home for their parents to help with homework assignments and when a parent is involved and tries to communicate with the teacher the teacher does not seem interested in helping the parents help their child to be successful. I am presently looking into private school for my child because I care about the education he is not getting at Aloma.

Highest expectations are met through the staff and students on a daily basis. I only wish that my older children would have had the same opportunity. As you walk through the doors you are met with a sense of wanting to be there. The atmosphere is joyful, serene, and content. (Definitely the family setting of home away from home) the children are inspired through their teachers to succeed and to achieve to their very best. The time invested in our children each day is astounding. We feel very blessed to have our child a part of the aloma family. Thank you sincerely to everyone for creating this wonderful environment for my child each day.

This is my childs first year at Aloma and I am very disappointed in the school. It is considered an A school but the school is practially falling apart and the principle is not very helpfull at all. The school definely needs more guidance to put it back on the right track. You would never think this was a Winter Park School. I hope the principle gets on the ball and does something to help teh teachers provide a better environment for their students. Where is all the money going from the 'A' school status. We need more parent involvment as well. I would not recomemnd this school to anyone moving in the zone and hope that the priciple and teachers try to improve the school and thereselves. In the meantime I am transfering my child to private school.

Caring community. Some inconsistency in teaching quality among newer teachers, and they do switch a lot of assignments from year to year. Hope new principal is as accessible as previous. Excellent after school music program.

I think Aloma Elementary is a great school. We just moved here from South Carolina and I have two attending Aloma elementary. My first grade teacher made my daughter feel really comfortable on her first day. She was very nervous giving the fact she is a one arm amputee, and she was very worried about the other students teasing her. So again I think its a great school, and the staff shows great concern for the students.
