If you love your child, do not send them here. I attended Floral Avenue for my Kindergarten, First, and Third grade years. The experience was traumatizing and it is my belief that my years there are a culprit in my development of Borderline Personality Disorder, Severe Anxiety Disorder and accompanying ...  Read more

I agree with the negative statements about this school. They are so worried about their dress code that education seems to come second. But for some reason, the dress code is only strictly enforced to certain children. I received a call from the school one day because my daughter's "shorts were too short" ...  Read more

The responses that are positive must be teachers. This is THE WORSE SCHOOL. Teacher's do not encourage parent involvement and are LAZY. The women in the front office are extremely rude, and problems at the school are handled inappropriatley. If you truly want your children educated send them else where.

Floral needs to work on the friendliness to parents and their children. I am very dissappointed in this school. I can only hope they make changes.

My grandchild started kindergarten at Floral. We have two local teachers in the family. We are used to being involved in our children's activities at school. We have found Floral to be very un-parent friendly and unwilling to allow us to volunteer at the school. It has been a very disappointing start ...  Read more
