The third grade team is very creative. The economics unit during the winter months is great lesson of supply and demand. My older children have come back and the teachers remember them and are genuinely interested in where they are and what they are doing. The school is very clean. There is a very good reason why it is the largest school in Manatee County.

The school is great. My Kindergartener was telling me how Abraham Lincoln was shot by John Wilkes-Booth. A fact I did not learn until 2nd or 3rd grade and I am 42 years old.

My daughter has attended this school since Kindergarten (2006-current). I enjoy volunteering and they love having me. Our daughter loves this school which is very important to us. The teachers are well educated and continue to stay abreast on new ways to keep the children interested in learning. Since I volunteer in the classroom so often I see this first hand. They offer a lot of activities and the PTO is extremely involved, they raise soooo much money for the school by throwing some great fundraisers. For example they threw an auction that raised a pretty penny; everyone had a great time!!

What an awesome place to go to work to everyday. The students and their families are wonderful. There is tremendous support from other staff members and administration. We're given excellent opportunities for professional development. This school is a fun place to be whether you're a student, a teacher, or a parent volunteer. We are a family. -Brenda Kern
