    Great school where students get individual attention from Teachers faculty and volunteers. Great every morning when the Principal is greeting and opening the door for you and doing the same in the afternoon. My grandson is having the best academic years he has ever had. A Grandmother

    Aside from the excellent teaching of core curriculum what sets this school apart are the cheerful caring teachers that find ways to help each child achieve their greatest potential. We were apprehensive at first moving here from a great school district out-of-state but we could not be more pleased with the exceptional education our kindergartner daughter and 1st grader son are receiving at PBES.

    One grade one class but the biggest sandbox in the country. The way education should be.

    The best school my son ever attended bar none the principal teachers and all the parental involvement exceeded any expectation I could imagine and after paying for years of private schools in another state I wish I'd have known about PBES yrs ago I;d have moved here just for the school and the education my kids were blessed with here.

    Our daughter has spent two years at this terrific little school. The teachers and principal are dedicated to improving your children and it shows. The parents are very involved and the education our child has received has been second to none.

    Thought I am not a parent I feel a need to officially recognize the academically and socially outstanding program at Pensacola Beach Elementary School. I am a senior in the International Baccalaureate Program at Pensacola High SChool and will in the fall be applying to Yale Brown and Vassar. In commenting on the value of the school I can most honestly and proudly attest that my years at the quaint and warm school were invaluable. The whole atmosphere exudes a caring yet firm moral and behavioral standard which is so important in the years during elementary school. Though a very small school I always felt free and encouraged to create acheive explore and develop there. The small class sizes and intense teacher commitment cause a sort of 'family' to be formed especially with the amazing parent involvement present. Though it has been nearly a decade since I have walked on the sandy decks of the school I have carried my experiences of learning in order to learn with me throughout every opportunity I have encountered and am indefinately grateful.
