This school is awful, we had to relocate just to avoid another year art Ft. Caroline. My son was stolen from daily! He was jumped by 10 kids on the playground & no one stopped it or even noticed! He has always been on the AB Honor roll up until the year spent in this school. I highly recommend avoiding putting your children into the care of this school at all costs.
Abrasive teachers, no PTA, Principal seems more interested in making himself more important on paper for politics, and the few people in the building that actually care enough to engage with their students have to put all their energy in the kids whose parents see school as a daycare.
The minimal feedback is a direct reflection of the amount of parent involvement at this school. So much potential, but just average in most respects. Most Title I schools w/out a magnet program have frustrated & jaded teachers, FCE is not very different. PROS: Lots of resources, reading coaches, every day children go to a different resource including Spanish. Principal hasn't given up. Mr. B is one of the friendliest and most positive people in the building. CONS: This school serves a community that drives some of the nicer neighborhoods zoned for this school to charter, magnet, and just "anywhere but here" schools. High needs students are immersed with traditional students, (I believe this is a mandate) serving as a distraction to the whole class. No PTA or alternative, & the Booster Club is a myth at this point. Perpetually grumpy teachers can be heard yelling at students in disrespectful tones. The staff in the multipurpose room at the end of the day is the worst! I m talking DMV mean.
We love this school. My children's teachers really care about them and take an interest in both their academics and social well being. My boys are having a great time and learning a lot. The environment is friendly and welcoming.
