My son has had such a smooth transition thanks to the Enterprise summer school program for future kindergarten students. He was worried that he would have a hard time making friends and getting lost, but the half day FREE program was wonderful. He had Ms. Rodgers for summer school and now for the 2014-2015 school year. She's terrific! She is organized, patient and a great communicator. We're excited to see all the wonderful programs in place like ice cream socials, fun run, and after school activities: engineering, tae-kwon-do, cooking and more. My son is so happy to tell me about his day. Enterprise is a great fit.

The worst school my children has ever went to they kept her at a level 6 all year and at the end of the school year moved her up to a level 12 now they want to put her back to a level 6 by retaining her she is only in first grade. The reading specialist gave her the same books over and over until she memorized them. The principle gave me the same material she knew already. The teacher gave her kindergarten curriculum from Jan through June. Had to teach my child at home to read. Did not want to give me homework relating to her class work. And on top of it did not want help from me in the classroom. Not informative on activities in the class at all had to demand her to be in the reading program. My daughter was sent to breakfast every morning because she was 10 mins early to class even though she had breakfast at home before she went to school and had a balance on her account due to her going to breakfast didn't even know she was going to breakfast.

Wow, what a great experience. My student is attending summer school and is loving it. She is reading on grade level and her math skills are fine, she loves the enrichment class. She is going to the local park weekly to work with the park rangers and teachers. Truly a unique summer adventure offering from public school. Love the many different programs and opportunities she is enjoying--even during the school year. Kudos to the Principal for leading such a varied and rich experience and great teachers for enthusiastically participating.

I think the school is okay. I don t think it s a bad school, but I certainly don t think it s the best. My favorite part of the school is the principle. She does seem to truly care about the students. The teachers are nice and helpful. The part I like least about the school is the fact that their entire curriculum is geared around taking tests. They take more tests in elementary school than I did in college. I'm considering placing my child in private school.

This is a terrible school, especially when it comes to a child with a learning disability. Not only do they not have a special education teacher in place, they bounced my son around so much, they caused him more issues then the ones he was already dealing with. His teacher blatantly told me in a meeting, in front of the county and the assistant principal, that she "Doesnt have time to deal with him." This is how you treat your students? At reenrollment, the school secretary advised me the my son would be "better off" going to Mcaullife Elementary, "Where they have a better program in place for his special education needs." BEST ADVICE I'd ever gotten from anyone at this school. I would never, ever send my child back to this school, where in my opinion, the teachers are stressed out and the Assistant Principal is snide and has a rude attitude.

I absolutely love this school! The Principal is amazing, very hands-on with the students and parents. My daughter started kindergarten this year and absolutely loves it. There are higher expectations of learning than I anticipated. I really like that also. It's always better to be challenged than bored!

I went to Enterprise and so did my spouse. We are successful, college graduates with great careers and great children. This school has also provided retirees in the community great opportunities. If you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all.

I have to say that based on the review below, I can say that I personally know the assistant principal, and KNOW that she would never say that. Enterprise has earned a School of Excellence award for the 2010 school year..very impressive. And that means that parents, teachers, staff, custodians, and students ALL work together to make this happen. I suggest that the parent below look into different programs within Enterprise to help her daughter, and talk to the gifted ed teacher if she feels that she isn't at the level she could be at.

Wow. Absolutely terrible. My daughter attends this school and is reading below grade level. I found out that she is being given reading work well below her grade level and graded on that, rather than what she should be doing/learning. The assistant principal told me that this was not a problem as 73% of America only reads at a 4th grade level anyway, so all newspapers and magazines are written to that level so she shouldn't have any problems in the future. I'm scared for our future.

My daughter attended 2nd grade at Enterprise. Looking back, I should have complained to the school board about the behavior and attitudes I experienced there. One teacher called my friends daughter a liar in front of the entire class and another intentionally hit my car with her radio. Both of my grandmothers died within two weeks of each other and I was treated terribly for my daughter missing school even though she had better grades than perfect attendance students and all of her homework was completed for the period missed; I was so depressed and was told 'well, it isn't your mother'. Our current school is fabulous and I am so thankful that I don't have to leave my child with such terrible people anymore...we skipped down the sidewalk and high fived each other on the last day of school because we were grateful to never have to go back.

This has been a really great year for my two children. They look forward to going to school each day. The class sizes are small and the teachers really know my children. My kids have soared in reading and I know its because of the great program, books and D.E.A.R. We also have had a lot of fun with family nights. It has been a great year.

I am so very disappointed in how this school takes care of their kindergarten children. I have just recently found out they took away snack 3 months ago and never told parents. Their homework expectations for a kindergartner is outrageous. My daughter used to love preschool and now she begs me every day to let her stay home. Kindergarten should have been a magical year. Instead I can't wait for it to just be over and to pull her out of Enterprise.

Its really sad to hear how negative some of these parents are. This school is wonderful because it works with all the needs of our students. Its not just about ESOL ( not ESL like some parents stated) but its an excepting school regardless of your immigration status. This country is a wonderful mixing bowl of people and I can say that the school is just as wonderfully diverse. The teachers, kids, parents, and administration is wonderful! We are a big family!

This is by far the worst school my son has attended -- being military, this is his 4th elementary school. The principal cares only for the minority students and the ESL program is the school's highest (if not only) priority; along with prepping the students for the SOL tests. My son always enjoyed attending school, participating in school activities, and meeting new friends -- I cannot say the same about this school. We are counting the days to the end of the school year and a new beginning.

They have some great teachers and caring parents in the PTA. The principal has gotten better but still leaves a lot to be desired. The illegal alien population is now negatively effecting what english speaking kids are getting. ESL seems to be the new priority so it's a great school if your kids don't speak english and a deminishing school if they do.

Enterprise has been a fantastic educational experience for our children. All of the teachers are very caring and totally involved in the students education. The school went through a trying time a couple of years ago when the principals changed, but Enterprise is now back on track. The gifted program in this district is second to none. Our children have very much enjoyed being at Enterprise.

A great school with after school programs and a great deal of parent involvement

This is a school where the administration and the teachers really care about each individual child. The education program for my son has been tailored individually for him, and the same high quality attention is given to each child. The PTA is extremely active, and parent involvement at the school is very high.
