This school is awful, we had to relocate just to avoid another year art Ft. Caroline. My son was stolen from daily! He was jumped by 10 kids on the playground & no one stopped it or even noticed! He has always been on the AB Honor roll up until the year spent in this school. I highly recommend avoiding putting your children into the care of this school at all costs.

Abrasive teachers, no PTA, Principal seems more interested in making himself more important on paper for politics, and the few people in the building that actually care enough to engage with their students have to put all their energy in the kids whose parents see school as a daycare.

The minimal feedback is a direct reflection of the amount of parent involvement at this school. So much potential, but just average in most respects. Most Title I schools w/out a magnet program have frustrated & jaded teachers, FCE is not very different. PROS: Lots of resources, reading coaches, every day children go to a different resource including Spanish. Principal hasn't given up. Mr. B is one of the friendliest and most positive people in the building. CONS: This school serves a community that drives some of the nicer neighborhoods zoned for this school to charter, magnet, and just "anywhere but here" schools. High needs students are immersed with traditional students, (I believe this is a mandate) serving as a distraction to the whole class. No PTA or alternative, & the Booster Club is a myth at this point. Perpetually grumpy teachers can be heard yelling at students in disrespectful tones. The staff in the multipurpose room at the end of the day is the worst! I m talking DMV mean.

We love this school. My children's teachers really care about them and take an interest in both their academics and social well being. My boys are having a great time and learning a lot. The environment is friendly and welcoming.

This is our first year. My son started Kindergarten. So far we really like it and feel like we got a great teacher. The school on the outside is not much to look at but everybody seems really nice and really into making sure your child gets the best education they can. My sons teacher communicates with me everyday and I think its wonderful. I have no issues with the Principal like another poster. I have always found him to be nice and he greets everybody first thing in the morning. I've signed up to volunteer and help my sons teacher and I'm excited to be apart and help out. I think its going to be a great school year!
