    Horrible at best. Used to be good school but now terrible teachers and even worse parental involvement. Many renter's kids swear and start fights but staff will not follow up. Do yourself and your kids a favor ... Get them to a great school nearby like Collins or Summerfield.

    We moved to FL from Ny this year and we were worried about the school system here. We have heard that academics weren't Florida's strong points. I have to say that we are nothing but pleased with this school and it's teachers.Her test scores show great improvement and I especially like the ELP after school program ( please keep this). My daughter is in 3rd grade and has Mrs. Pedraja and Mrs. Smith. Both are excellent teachers and we couldn't have gotten luckier with her first year's teachers. Keep up the great work!

I have went to every concert open house Book a thon and F.R.A. bowl we can! every time they have one its hard to find a seat Every kids loves corr!

    Horrible. Administration is lazy at best teachers roll eyes and complain right in front of kids and parents alike (I've witnessed this first hand) and there is a serious lack of parent involvement. The only positive thing about this school is that my child LOVED the art and music teachers. This school needs motivation and enthusiasm. If you don't have the drive and deep desire to TEACH children you shouldn't be involved in an educational setting at all. This place seems like a bunch of people who are there just to collect a paycheck.

    The principal and guidance counselor and my son's teacher are very uninvolved even when I have approached them repeatedly for help. I have been less than impressed with the entire school system and will be taking my personal concerns to the school superintendent.

  • (2 years ago)

    Teachers we have had are great my daughter has made many friends and is always happy to go to school. The administration also seems very friendly and always made me feel welcomed. As a parent I can have some say in what teachers are chosen and my kid gets to see the benefits.

    My son & daughter are new to Corr this year & I can't wait to get them out of there. My daughter's teacher is very kind & you can tell she enjoys what she does. My son's teachers are HORRIBLE. Even communicating with them has been a nightmare. I never see the Principal. I approached the guidance counselor about testing my son for gifted after our previous school counselor recommended it at the end of last yr & w/o knowing me or my son she said something along the lines of "he needs more responsibility at home". My son went from LOVING school to hating it. He used to have a book in his hands all the time & now I practically have to force him to do his nightly reading. Getting him to school & to do his hmwk is a daily battle. He does worksheets all day it's monotonous to say the least. They just drill the fcat. There is alotted recess time each non PE day but unfortunately it is at the teacher's discretion whether or not they go outside and they NEVER do. I understand why he hates it. He is stuck at a desk all day everyday doing worksheets after coming from a great school with teachers that cared and a Principal that was ALWAYS visible before during and at after school functions.

    This school has wonderful compassionate teachers....they truly care about my childs future and well being! I had an experience with my child being very ill all of the staff and famialies united to help my son keep up with his school work and organized fund raisers to help!! I have four children one already in middle school and the traits taught by this school will never be forgotten!

    I am so happy Corr has finally started a 'Gifted Program.' They have found an outstanding teacher to teach this program. Mrs. Shaeffer has done such neat fun stuff with my child. My child does not even know she is learning. She thinks it is so much fun. Corr has always been a great school but with teachers like this it is now fabulous to say the least. The principal is dynamite also.

    I just was informed a few weeks ago that Mrs. Schafer the new gifted teacher has found my child qualified to be in her class. My child always loved school but now she is being challenged in math. I am thrilled Corr has got a gifted program.

    Corr is a wonderful school and my daughter loves going everyday. The grounds are always kept very clean and the staff is awesome. There is a lot of pride from all staff members from principal to the janatoral team. This to me is important everyone gets along. I can't say enough about the teachers they all seem to love the job they do and the children they teach. I am so very pleased and could not ask for a better school that my beloved daughter can experience the first few years of her education. THANK YOU CORR!!!!!!!!

    I am a parent of a child at Corr. We have seen this school grow and thrive throughout the last four years. The school is kept in wonderful condition. The teachers are hard working and caring individuals. As a volunteer who works at this school I can say that there is none better.

    This school has been wonderful. My son is in ESE class and from the first day to now he has changes 100%. Everyone has worded with me with my problems and with him. They have taken the time to help him. He is talking alot more and interacting a whole lot more. Everyone in that school deserves recognition for all the support and time they take with the kids to help them

    We just found out the infamous Mrs. Schafer from Collins Elementary has moved to Corr. We are thrilled. She had my son in 3rd grade prior to us moving. I am praying she is going to be teaching 3rd grade and will have my daughter. Corr is a good school with an outstanding principal.

    Corr is an excellent school. All the teachers are very exciting and have a love and passion to teach every child. All the staff is very eager to help with any problem you may have and come up with a solution not just a quick fix. They are also very good at noticing the kids that make good decisions and have great accomplishments. I love Corr and would not put my kids anywhere else.

    Ms. Heinz is an excellent teacher and really cares for her class . My gaughther loves going there in Kindergarten and continues to get better at reading and other activities. Her teacher makes all the dfference. She takes the time to make learning fun and I know she spends her own time in projects for her class .I have volunteered for a few activities and they do the best with the resources they have.
