    This school is fantastic. Especially considering the stereo types that are said about inner-city schools. I myself graduated from this school. My kids are in this school. One who has left already and who leaves this month for middle school. However my little one is still there. The teachers are still great. Especially mrs. Austin.

    I would like to commend the Administrative Staff Teachers and most of all the students for all of their hard work during the 2004-05 school. Because of their outstanding progress they earned an 'A' once again! Even though it was very frustrating at times to have the students focus on the FCAT all throughout the year their determination dedication and constant tutoring really paid off! During the 2 years that my child was attending Charles Drew I noticed that they need to step up on the disciplinary actions and Student Code of Conduct. If they're going to make the rules they need to 'enforce' them at all times. Other than that I pray that Charles Drew Elem. will continue to remain the 'Awesome Achievers' that they are and always will be. God Bless!
