I feel like my child wasted a whole year , if you have a child with special needs place them in kendale lakes elementary please!
I am a parent of 3 kids. My son was at Dante from Kinder to 5th grade and my daughters are currently there, one in Pre-K, the other in 4th grade. I've been a part of this school since 2010. The current Principal, Ms. Ferrarone, is extremely rude. Every single teacher I've come into contact with throughout children's school life has been amazing. The front office and before and after school care staff are great. This woman is seriously giving the school a bad name. I was in there today to ask her something and instead of addressing me, the parent, she spoke to the office staff and never once made eye contact with me. It was the 3 of us standing together, so I can't understand why she couldn't muster up the courtesy to look at me while answering my question. I am completely disgusted at her professionalism (or lack thereof) . Why anyone thinks she is fit to run an ELEMENTARY school is beyond me.
My daughter had the same teacher for kinder and 1st. She didn’t teach her anything, gave her A’s, B’s, honor roll. When she got to second grade, my daughter didn’t know how to read and was struggling. I had to put her in private tutoring, Kumon. She learned how to read there. My daughter had to repeat 2nd grade because of the bad teaching of this school. My daughter wasn’t the only child struggling. She had 2 class mates that had been with her since kinder that were also placed in kumon and also had to repeat the grade. I switched her from school. She’s in a ESE program and is doing great in her new school. This grading period my daughter got Honor Roll and this time she really worked hard for it and I’m so proud of her. If you live in the area and can put your child in a different school, do it. Don’t bring them to Dante Fascell Elementary.
Horrible 1st graders don’t know how to read! Not even sight words... they all end up in Kumon for 2nd grade.
