If you can afford private, opt for that instead of Tavares. The principal is focused on her title - not making the school an admired place. The teachers are subpar and leftovers from other schools and districts. The place has been effectively run in the ground to the point of impacting the resale value ...  Read more

This school lacks the ability to properly educate students, and struggles with staff retention. I find the administration to be laughable at best; collectively, they are strikingly inept. Further, the school is overcrowded, the teaching staff is below average and the atmosphere is hostile for both students ...  Read more

I wanted to praise the 5th grade teacher 'team'. They have split up their classes so the 5th graders rotate. Mrs. Burg, Mrs. Lassiter and Mr. Bidding are truly a dream team of teachers. My 5th grader has gained so much in knowledge and confidence this year. The teachers (for the most part} MAKE this ...  Read more

My daughter enrolled here after we moved about 1 year ago. Overall the school is good. I am concerned that she doesn't get out enough for sports, etc. I am a bit concerned as well that communication seems to be lacking. Although she does have an assignment book, she is responsible to write down her ...  Read more
