I like this school for for the most part but I strongly feel there is a lack in safety for my kids one being no fence around the playground like anyone can walk up to them while they are playing. and 2 the pick up is insane people are everywhere kids adults are just scattered all Over the place it's like every man for them selfs to pick up their kid and you don't need any identification To get them no card with their names and theirs teacher names you simple drive up or walk up and your kid tells their teacher bye and they leave i feel like anyone can walk away with my kid It's very scary...

Very poor.... they do not communicate with the parents and the principal likes to send a third party to do their jobs rather than do it themselves. If you have a child in special education do not go to this school very unorganized and disrespectful...

My daughter loved this school. The teachers and staff were excellent. She learned so much at this school that once she transferred to another school she was too advanced for her class. We are moving back to the area so that she can go back to Shands.

My child excelled so much this year. His teacher was wonderful, and the administrators are very supportive.

This is not a good school. It is very overcrowded.

There isn't much parental involvement- too many illegals. There is a lack of extracurricular activities, but I will say there are some outstanding teachers here doing the best they can.
