    On two separate occasions I have heard of parents stating their child gets bullied here and the teachers don't do anything about it. I would not recommend anyone move to a home where this school is in their district.

    I am very disappointed in the way the communication lacked; and when it came to our student - he was switched from one class to another without notice to parents. We are not happy and will try to relocate him before he fails. We were under the impression they would help him and communicate with us - yet this never happened... We don't even know what were his FCAT scores.... Thank you.

    The most awful experience ever! When it comes to children who have divorced parents this school is the worst. If it were up to me I would take them out of this school and put them back into a private school again. Unfortunately I am only the step-parent and when it comes to a step-parent they isolate you. They treat you like the gum stuck at the bottom of their shoes. Little ones as young as the again of 6 years old cursing. CAUTION fathers they isolate you and treat you like a criminal too. Worst school I have ever come across. My kids haven't learned anything yet. They had lots better grades at their old school. They're not really interested in who the children go home with when they're car riders.

    I have worked with Pineloch for almost three years as a volunteer. The Principal is outstanding; she cares for the students inspires the faculty and reaches out to the many volunteers from the IMPACT program. Because of her excellent leadership she encourages her faculty who stay with the school year after year because of her leadership and their deep desire to help the students learn. As a result Pineloch was an A rated school for two years and a B rated school this past year.

    I have enjoyed the quality of education that pineloch provides there students. I have been an active parent since I have seen first hand what pineloch has to offer I would recommend it as a great school for students to build from. The foundation is life changing and essenctional to a student to succeed in the real world. I wish my child could stay for grades 6-12 at pineloch.

    Our church supports Orange County Public Schools by mentoring the wonderful children at Pineloch Elementary School in Orlando through our volunteer IMPACT program. The children staff and volunteers there really show what a positive difference can be made by caring people.

    I am grateful to the entire staff at Pineloch My husband and his entire family attended this school and we made sure our son was to continue the tradition. Our son who is going into 2nd grade has learned so much and is constantly being encouraged to do his best.

    This school is horrible. My child had the worst experience at this school. They really don't care about those children. I must also say that the security of those kids are in jepardy. Anyone can walk on the campus at anytime and get any kid who is walking around. I'm glad I took my child out. she is so much happier!

    Good principal who really cares about students. Lack of funding and resources makes it difficult for students to succeed.

    I worked at Pineloch last year as a volunteer and found the staff to be extradinary. The principle Dr. Choice looks at any and everything that will help to improve the students academic physical and emotional growth. If you are looking for a ggod elementary school you will not go wrong with Pineloch.

    Sadly I can think of nothing nice to say about this school. My son attended 1st grade there 2 years ago. At the school play the principal announced 'I did not believe these kids would be able to do it but all the hard work of all these teachers sort of paid off.' We almost left the state of Florida because of this school. If it were not for the greatness of Windermere Ele. we would not have stayed here. I wish the gov't would come in gut Pineloch Ele. did I mention how dirty it was? Send away all the faculty and staff and start all over again. This school only gets a C rating every year because of politics. Or maybe the C stands for the Cursing the office people often use to the parents and in front of the children.
