    Very disorganized school in general. My daughter has attended rb for 4th and 5th grade. Everything about this school is dissapointing. Last month there was a bomb threat and they evacuated the school...only sent an email after the fact. If I call the front office for any reason no one ever knows what's going on at all. Car rider line is ridiculous. Very unfriendly for families with kids not yet in school as they arent allowed on school property.

    I've had two children attend Red Bug Elementary. Every teacher was excellent. The PTA and staff always welcomed parents. The few times I had to interact with administration was pleasant and satisfactory. Also this school is very safe!

    RBE is the best! My daughter is in her 5th year and she is doing so well thanks to the teachers and staff at RBE. Special note The staff keeps this school very safe and secure.

    Pick-up and drop off are a nightmare. The parking lot is too small for a school RBE size. There should be some major construction to improve this process. It is potentially dangerous.

    My daughter enjoyed her time at this school especially her teachers. The PTA looks to involve any parent wanting to volunteer which is awesome. Teachers are always willing to have parents in their classes. The only thing that I would change would be the front office staff. They are not very friendly and seem perpetually frazzled.

    This will be my sons second year at Red Bug Elementary. I haven't had a lot of interaction with the schools leadership but I'm extremely happy with both of his teachers thus far. It's a very clean safe environment for kids and my son enjoys going. I can't say enough about his teachers as they truly care about each student's progression. They embody what we all believe to be a "caring" teacher.

    We are in our third year here and we could not be any happier. The second grade teacher we have is absolutely outstanding and so is the gifted teacher. Administration has always been willing to meet with us and listen to our concerns.

    My son goes to RBE. He had a terrible experience with the 3rd grade teacher he had last year she was constantly yelling at him and making horrible negative comments. Never a posive note in his planner at all. Of course the administration always denies any wrong doing from the teachers. This year he has a great teacher that encourages him and he is a lot happier

    It's our first year at RBE and I am very disappointed. Our teacher is great but I find administration to be uncaring. Also the carline is ridiculously long too.

    My son went to Kindergarten here last year and is now in first grade and I love this school. The teachers are kind and helpful. They do their best to make sure everyone is happy and really welcome parents to come and be involved with their childs school. All of the rooms have smart boards and the teachers wear mics and can be heard throughout the classrooms through speakers so no child has a disadvantage. I am very proud that my kids get to go here.

    The teachers are nice and want the best for their students; however the administrators need to go. They don't answer parent questions and concerns. I'm really disappointed in this school.

    My child has been going to Red Bug for the last two years and I have never once regretted enrolling him.

  • (5 years ago)

    Both of my kids went through Red Bug from 2nd grade. What a great school. The teachers are wonderful and not only that it will be newly remodeled soon. They are now at Tuskawilla Middle and loving it!

    This is my son's 3rd year at Red Bug Elementary. He has been blessed with a wonderful teacher each year. Each show that they care and have kept me informed of concerns or challenges they see.

    They recognize students needs and match them with one one one assistance.

    We struggled with sending our child to a private school vs. Red Bug and since entering this elementary school our family has only wonderful experiences with everything from the teachers to the faculty to the programs. I believe the principal and the entire staff have the best interests of the students at heart. The key is being involved in your school. You see everything once you are involved and only want to help all the children in the class. We went from struggling with our decision to being most happy with our choice at Red Bug. Keep it up teachers...

    We love Red Bug. The teachers really care about the children as individuals which makes a big difference.

  • (7 years ago)

    My children attend Red Bug and we love it very much. We've had a couple of issues that needed attention and both the teacher and Principal immediately made contact with us to address our needs. We are so happy with the progress our kids have been making. The drop off could be a little better but overall this is an excellent school.

    My children use to go to an Orange County School. Since moving my children have beyond excelled and improved in all ways possible. The teachers are very understanding and helpful. They go out of their way to help children. I would recommend this school to anyone and everyone with children. The drop off could be alittle better organized.

    Our family moved to FL 2 mos ago. Red Bug staff was not warm and did not make our family feel welcomed. Most of the staff barely speaks and when they do it definitly is not with a smile. The new principle is the worst I have ever seen. I am surprised she is responsible for such an important role her personality definately does not fit the elementary school environment. The classrooms are open with and shared with 4 other teachers. Pickup and Dropoff are horrible. The school needs to improve their social skills and provide better guidance to new families. The gifted teacher is Great! She is the only person who made us feel welcomed.
