It's been better. The newer teachers are an asset and improving the teacher value .

We moved so that our children could attend Keeth. The teachers care and it shows in how they teach and the time they spend with students and parents. The principal knows the student's and parent's names and is VERY involved with the school. They have movie nights at the school, book readings, and plenty of other after hours activities (that the principal and teachers attend). Of course, there are some "bad" students, you will never find a school without a couple. The staff does the best that they can to try to work with those students and help them improve. We were very involved parents at our children's last school and are involved at Keeth; the difference between the schools is night and day. You won't be disappointed if your children attend school at Keeth, it's more than a school, it's a family.

Keeth Elementary has proved to be a wonderful school. My oldest has learning disabilities which wasn't caught until 3rd grade by a 1st year teacher who I will never forget! As with any school, I think parent involvement is the key to success! Keeth has great leadership and accepts/encourages parental involvement and frankly the more involved you are the better quality education your child receives. Out of the 5 years my oldest has been to this school and the 4 years my youngest has attended, I only have had 2 regrets with teachers. Both teachers were older and did not accept or understand learning disabilites or ADHD. After these experiences, I now immediately change or threaten to change teachers if I feel my child's needs are not being met or learning styles accommodated. Again....boils down to PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT regardless of school you are zoned for. Parents must be involved and a good teacher which Keeth is loaded with will both respect and encourage this!

In what is now my child's third year at Keeth, we remain thoroughly impressed by the quality of the education. The faculty and staff are outstanding and demonstrate daily enthusiasm and commitment to their job of providing a great learning environment for the kids. This is a Great School!

The facts are: Keeth just received its 10th straight A ranking. There is some diversity in the school attendance zone, which has proven to be a good thing. Keeth has probably the most active parents in the school district, with an outstanding PTA to augment its exceptional faculty and staff. Enrollment has been to steady to growing since the last district rezoning with increases beginning now as a result of new home construction in process in the Winter Springs Town Center and Tuskawilla areas. This is an outstanding school by any measure.

Check the zoning for this school. Alot of kids come from other areas because it is a small school and they are trying to beef up enrollment. It was almost going to be closed down for low numbers. Don't assume it is an upper economic school just because it is in the Tuskawilla area. We have run into some riff raff, shady families and their kids are even worse. The teachers are great, there is no denying that.

Correction to the previous posting: True Keeth did very well on 2011 FCAT writes for 4th grade, but not the highest in Seminole county as stated in that post. Check the official fcat.fldoe data online. Two elementary schools in the county scored higher passing percentages and 3 others scored the same as Keeth. Can't really say "#1 in the county". Love seeing the love for Keeth, but let's quote actual facts, which are quite good on their own.

This is a fabulous school! I moved to this area specifically so that my children could go to Keeth. I was amazed by how much my daughter learned last year in kindergarten. Thanks Mrs K for teaching her how to read! I hope my son gets you next year!

We moved here from up north and have been very pleased with our experiences at Keeth. The Principal is the best. He is so involved in everyday things, starting with the car line. He's in the halls, always with a smile and a friendly greeting. He really cares about the kids and he knows all of them. As busy as he is, he makes time for parents if needed. The same can be said about the guidance counselor. She's very warm and approachable if you ever need anything. There are some extraordinary teachers at Keeth as well. I really couldn't have ask for more. Many teachers go above and beyond, taking on extra projects showing up for all those after hours school activities. The new music teacher has brought so much energy to the music program. It's my kids' favorite specials class. The PTA is very active and always looking for help to run all their programs. If you like to be involved with your child's school, this is the place to be. There are some things I miss from our school up north, such as having an indoor gym and larger cafeteria/auditorium space, but I can live with it. Keeth is an older school, but the teachers and staff are what makes Keeth great.

Keeth Elementary is a wonderful school! I have to strongly disagree with the negative reviews that were placed as certain things mentioned in my opinion are not true. I live in a neighborhood in close proximity to the school and all of the children I know attend Keeth. The principal is VERY involved within the school and knows the children and parents. They strongly encourage parental involvement within this school. My daughter is now in first grade at Keeth and has loved both of her teachers! We have been blessed to meet so many wonderful families at this school!

Children are bused in from other low income areas. Most of the parents in the Tuskawilla area send their children to private schools now because the behavior problem students are taking over. The free and reduced lunch is up to 34% and I'm sure it is for this reason. The principal seems very unfamiliar with how young children learn. My son was left unsupervised several times. NOT a safe school! Last thing, recess is almost non-existent even K only gets 5 minutes. THANKS FCAT!

What has happened to Keeth Elementary in the last 2 years....seems to have taken a downward turn. Can't say much for the new principal....not sure he knows how to run a school. Is he ever there?

I cannot say enough about how amazing Keeth is! My daughter went there in the 90's & I loved it then. Now I have 2 sons there who LOVE it! Both boys are at opposite ends of the spectrum...one with special needs & the other with "superior" scores. The staff and teachers have always been there for both boys & have helped me tremendously with my special needs son. Their primary concern is what's best for the children. I've heard some horror stories of IEP meetings at other schools, including schools in this same area. I've never had a problem at Keeth, never felt intimidated, or pressured. They truly work with you as a team! The new principal is awesome! The kids love him & he has introduced programs that allow dads to get involved before school. The staff & teachers really gets to know the parents &

Love my daughter's 1st grade teacher, Mrs. Thomas. We will truly miss her next year when our child moves up to 2nd grade. I work full time, so I haven't had a lot of interaction with the staff, but they seem nice enough. I have helped with school fund raisers and most of the parents are great to work with.

I have been fairly satisfied with Keeth Elementary. This school places emphasis on reading, there is fantastic parent involvement, and a great sense of 'community' in this school. The weakness is the lack of training and knowledge of learning disabilities. It would be helpful if staff were trained in teaching children with learning disabilities.

We have been very impressed with the quality of teachers at Keeth. Both my child's kindergarten and first grade teachers really tried to make learning fun. My child has a very high level of confidence in math and reading and enjoys school. My child does complain a bit about the strictness and rules at school, but overall I think the teachers are doing what is best for the kids. They start the kids doing things the right way from the very beginning. My child loves art and P.E., including the running club. He likes music much more this year, but I think it is his least favorite Specials activity. Parent involvement seems slightly above average.

This is a quality public school, better than average parent and volunteer force...as with any public school falls somewhat short for students with special needs or different learning styles such as ADHD.

Well run school with a great group of teachers overall. Fantastic kindergarten team made my son's first year the best ever. Mrs. Tucker is the greatest teacher any child could ever have. Fun traditions like the Biography Brunch and Book Bowl Parade in 5th grade. Parent involvement is huge at this school. Every year we were there(8), more parent-generated activities were added. Gifted Program was challenging for my son. Keeth was a great experience for all three of my children. They were well prepared for middle school. Great web site with Accelerated Reading lists. Reading is emphasized at this school.

Keeth is a well-maintained and good quality school. The classes are large - there were 26 students in my son's class - so there is little opportunity for individualized instruction; you either get it or you don't. Also, in my son's class, candy and gum with lots of sugar and dyes were used as rewards/incentives. This is an unhealthy and unnecessary practice. My son's teacher was good about communicating with me, was compassionate and as helpful as she could be. However, my son had some learning problems and I was disappointed by the way the administration tried to 'help' him.

The faculty at Keeth Elementary exceeds in all areas. The teachers are dedicated and committed to teach my first grader and my kindergartner. I am extremely impressed at the level my 5 year old is reading and the 1-1 attention given to both of my children. Keeth exemplifies and strives to make every child learn. The teachers are thorough in their teaching and shows a strong disciplinary code which I am completely satisfied with.
