    I have no idea why this school only has a three!!! We moved here from out of state in the middle of the school year. My daughter's teacher is AMAZING! The Principal is AMAZING!!! The front office staff is always amazing! This school is all about educating children in a respectful structured fun environment. My daughter and I both love Flora RIdge!

    I have lives in the Stonefield Community for 12 years. I have three kids from age 5-15 years old. We lives in a great community. Flora Ridge Elementary is not top notch school. Some of the critic about the school is not organized is true. However I see the school is doing much better. Very focus on teaching kids not to be bully. A new principal and new teachers who coming are very knowledgeable. As much as the school bears the responsibility the parent need to behave in appropriate manner. I have seen many parent who are refused to follow the rule. Cry about every little things but not doing anything about it. Parent involvement is very important for the school. So let get involve and stop complaing.

    I have to say i hope every parent when moving to a community always check reviews on the schools because i moved from nj to fl 19 mths ago and the only reason was for family little did i know that osceola school district is horrible unorganized and the area to ghetto for me i come from a diverse community and a community where teachers nieghbors and students come together and from the moment my son stepped foot in this school he was misplaced on the bus 2 days in a row i was freaking out called the school and the bored and they didnt even kniw what was going on once my lease was done this past jan i was ready to move back to jersey till i moved to hunters creek and it was the best thing i could have done for my family and i my child now goes to john young elementry and what a differance calm collective snd organized and very professional flora ridge can not compare and as for osceola county its sad that they dont care for students the way they should!!! And the staff unprofessional and the teachers should have a dress code that is appropriate along with the volunteers its a shame as for some of the teachers i feel sorry because its not there fault.

    Well my son transferred here from another school in Orange county and all i can say is believe what you read... I use to think that negative reviews were just made by angry people in general and ignore them but now I know better and this is my first ever review of anything. My son loved school before and is now crying everyday I drop him off. The staff is very rude and makes you feel uncomfortable. On his first Wednesday early release I forgot so I went to pick him up and noticed the car rider line was empty...OMG I ran into that office and there he was just sitting there...no phone call???? REALLLY??? An hour after dismissal? I am a very involved parent and hate this school for making me feel like i am doing them a disservice by asking questions regarding my sons education! Cant wait for this year to be over with....

    I have two of my children attending Flora Ridge. Its their first year in Flora Ridge and I can tell its the worst school that my kids are attended. We come from Lee vista area and schools there are great. Orange county schools its much much better than osceola. The school staff are very rude and have a horrible attitude with parents and they dont know was going on in the school. School dismissal is terrible.... In overall a gave -0 to this school and the school grade comes from D to C OMG!!! HORRIBLE SCHOOL.....

    Today was the first day of my kids school. There was so proper system to drop your kid. Only KG's were allowed inside with the parents and rest of students have to go alone. I need to ask the school why? were it only first day for KG's not for other kids even they are in 1 or 2 or 3rd grade they r kids too and it was there first day too? There was no communication b/w the teachers office and principal. Teachers doesn't know what are the school policies. they don't know the schedule for the lunch the answer i got was its first day yeah i know its first day but you all should be prepared. They told me to call after an hr and now when I am calling the school No one is picking up the phone its only going to answering machine. Really poor management for the school. The school has a "C" grade OMG i couldn't believe my eyes when I received the letter congratulating that school has become from "D" grade to "C" grade. I don't know how to rate this school I want to give them a big ZERO or negative all over. We are moving back to hunter's creek so alteast our kids can go to a nice school and where school knows what is going on in their school.

    mi hija estuvo un semestre completo en kinder en esa escuela y solo le ensenaban lo que ya sabia en prekinder. una vez me llamaron para decir que mi hija estaba ausente me asuste porque yo la habia enviado en bus. fue un error de ellos.y en otra ocacion no subieron a mi hija en bus en su segundo dia de clases y me pidieron que fuera a buscarla pero yo no tenia carro por eso yo la enviaba en bus. ademas de castigar a mi hija por no seguir intrucciones en ingles si ella solo habla espanol estaba aprendiendo ingles en kinder!! LO UNICO BUENO< SU MAESTRA SOLON HOGAR Y ESTRUCTURA DE LA ESCUELA. me mude para poinciana ahora va a palmetto y rapido vi la diferencia. ha aprendido muchisimo y el personal no es inresponsable.

    i don't even know where to begin in rating this school.. from 1-10 I give it a negative 20. They talk the talk about wanting parents involved and when we do try they treat the parents like unwanted guests- the office staff is ALWAYS RUDE.. especially the principals assistant Ms. LeBlanch- she has a horrible attitude and is rude and obnoxious. My child has been bullied and nothing has been done! The worst thing I've done is buy in Kissimmee- we are selling and moving back to Hunters Creek so my children can be in a 'real' school. Imagine a fifth grader going to computer classes with Mrs Vickers who is not even a teacher and they play kindergarten games while she eats and screams at the kids if they complain for being bored!! UNBELIEVABLE!! This is just scratching the surface!!

    We would like to bring into light the situation we are having with our child a kindergarten student of Flora Ridge Elementary School of Kissimmee. My child is being bullied by several class mates. We have spoke to the principal and assistant principal several times this year in regards to our concerns. With all due respect i think our complaint have fallen onto death ears. they are many concern and I think the principal has failed us and the other students and our community and should be considered ti be REPLACED. You might think I'm extreme but i have spoken to several of my neighbor and faculty and we all agreed that this school lack leadership and a hand on person ti fix the bullying and lack and follow thru so many of our neighbor place there children in other schools and even make financial sacrificed and place them into private school due to they feel that our neighborhood elementary school is not fit for there kids after they gave up on the lack leadership Principal an opportunity to serve our children for she does not severe the best interest of our children. Respectfully!!!!

    I have been having problems with this school since my kids started.It's very unorganized.After a year the school realizes I moved and demanded that I change my kids school.(They should of informed me of this before my kids even started) The kids were devastated.The Administrative staff did not even care.Another situation one day they called me to tell me that my child was sick when I got to the school the child that was sick was not even mine.Unbelievable.This school is horrible.

    My son came to this school from being in Reedy Creek first. He hated that school. Now this school has been the best experience he has had yet. He has learned so much here. And also the teachers have tought him how to have high self-esteem and to believe in himself and that he can be whoever he wants to be. Which is great because my son didn't believe in himself and hated school but not anymore thanks to the teachers from Flora Ridge Elementary.

    Teachers and staff are great! Very friendly always available to assist with any questions ot concerns you may have. very safe environment front doors are locked once the bell rings ensuring that anyone who comes in after that must enter through the office to access the school. parents are also encouraged to be proactive in the school by volunteer work or simply coming in and having lunch with their kids.
