I have had the privelege of seeing and being involved with several different elementary schools in Pinellas County, and this one which appears to be so great and wonderful from the outside, really isn't so great and wonderful, BEWARE!!!! Teachers are not organized at all, and the students academics are suffering because of it. The teachers are also not consistent with homework and tests, and communication is extremely minimal. Highly disappointed, think twice and really look into the schools you are thinking about sending your kids too, this one is such a huge disappointment. Their website looks great and glad they received a high award on their food they provide, lets get those high academic achievement awards for your students as well and brag about those instead, especially the ones who are struggling!! It seems they give up on these students, and you should never give up on any student, you never know what their full potential truly is!! I am so upset with this school, and the lack of student support and encouragement!!
Great neighborhood school. Great teachers and staff. A Great Schools 5 star rating because it's a public school that is not allowed to expel students of single mothers, economically disadvantaged minorities, and other parents that cannot devote the time and energy demanded by some of the local 10 star charter schools. Still, an exceptional public school, with a top-notch staff of teachers dedicated to providing a first class education to kids - regardless of their parent's situation.
My son has very specific needs and they met them all with a caring hart. I highly recommend this school! My son isn't the easiest kid, but they stuck with us and helped improved him and his learning skills! My son is going to a different school this year, because unfortunately we had to relocate . Before we left from San Jose I had to be very careful on what we put on his IEP. They sat in the meeting with me for about 2hrs to make sure I was happy with the verbiage and all the accommodations! I send my Love and a Big Thank you to the San Jose team!!!!
My son attended San Jose a few years ago. He has learning disabilities which they were aware of. At the time he was fairly new to the area and very quiet and shy, yet the principal was constantly accusing him of bullying others based not on anything he did, but things he allegedly said to groups of other kids as he usually walked alone on campus due to his shyness. For little things like dropping his pencil or getting out of his chair they did not allow him to go on a field trip he had his heart set on and the principal kicked him out of the school like 3 weeks before graduation based on something he allegedly said. However, I only wish he had left SJ sooner because it turned out he went to a great elementary and had an absolutely wonderful teacher his last weeks of elementary school and in just a few weeks made lots of friends. There tends to be a lot of gossip among office staff and parents at San Jose, more than at other schools and the principal apparently pays too much attention to this and my son got in the cross fire of it. Such childish behavior by adults and professionals should not be the source of unfair treatment of children. Hope SJ is doing better.
