Our kindergartener has Mrs. May for a teacher, and she is just spectacular. Our son entered the school 2.5 months ago and at that time he knew his ABCs and could sound out a word or two when he wasn't distracted. Two days ago he read a whole book to us!

I have 3 children in Poinciana. The majority of teachers are wonderful, unfortunatly there are a handful who should retire. My children have learned so much from the hands on approach at this school. There are lots of clubs and after school programs to get the children more involved. This is a great ...  Read more
