I am a parent that just watched my last child walk off of the Pershing campus for middle school. I have been involved with this school since 1997 and can't say enough about the teachers and administration. Wherever there are children, there will always be "issues" to deal with...just like at home! But ...  Read more

I am a parent that is appauled at the conduct of some of the teachers as well as many students at pershing. I feel that amount of physical aggression that continues to go on at the school with little or no disciplinary response by administration is unacceptable. For a school with few children I would ...  Read more

Pershing is a great school! The principal, Dr. Cupid-McCoy is so involved and she knows each and every child by name it seems as you walk around the school.

Pershing is a very good school for the average child. However, if your child has special needs or is 'different' in other ways, you should look elsewhere. Most of the teachers have been there for a very long time and are very set in their ways. They don't want to adapt and are quite intolerant overall. ...  Read more

Small class size, high level of parental involvement. This is a small community school. It's curriculum is unfortunately geared toward the state mandated test, FCAT and testing your child is what this school will do from kindergarten until he/she leaves!

Pershing is a wonderful, public elementary school that encourages reinforcement of the reading and math skills that they learn in class at home every day. The parents are very involved at the school and the extended day program is an outstanding value for the money. I feel lucky to have had the chance ...  Read more

My Daughter has gone to Pershing Elementary since pre-k. She enjoys the school and the teachers are great. I do believe that a more one on one environment would be helpful. The children get along great and I have had no problem with school bullys.
