    My wife just rated the school and I have to say that we are very happy. We feel like we are wanted at the school. So many changes have made this school very welcoming. I love the school and the staff.

    I have been a business partner at Kissimmee Elementary for 9 yrs. and it has not always been a pleasant experience. Since the new principal has been there I see a brand new school. He is always talking with the kids and parents and he wants us at his school. In the past I felt like a bother. I attended the teacher and student council last month and so many parents are happy at Kissimmee now. Thank you for welcoming us to Mr. Noyes.

    I am happy with the school this year. it has many changes that are so good for the students. The new administrator loves the students and I feel like he wants me at the school to help. He is a blessing for our school and my kids love him.

    My children have been at this school for 3 years now. All I can say I' am very pleased with the staff and the teachers are great specially the ESE teachers are so helpful and dedicated.

    If your child has learning challeneges it is not a good school to get him/her. The teachers seem not to care and explore different ways to teach him/her. They seem not concerned or informed of different learning challenges that our children are experiencing in this new generation.

    My child entered this school in January 2006 [the] teacher was unorganized unmotivated and my child suffered for it. Hopefully his teacher thsi year will be better or I will have to take him out of the school. The question sof why public education can't be great education is one I am struggling with.

    This School is not a good school at all my child has been here only one year and I don't like it at all. I am disappointed at the lack of security in this school.

    My son is in K and he loves the school. I am just concerned about the FCAT score for this school. I am really proud of the effort teachers/principal are doing to prepare better the students.

    This school is great. Is the best school in kissimmee they have programs for childrens with other language and the teacher always are looking for the children progress.

  • (10 years ago)

    This school has no recess periods for the children. My children found it extremely stressful and their academic achievement suffered rather than improved. Plus in a country facing an obesity epidemic this seems unconsionable.

  • (10 years ago)

    This school is top-notch. The principal and the teachers are totally focused on academic achievement. Don't let the letter grade fool you!

    This school is a grat school. My niece has been going here since she entered kindergarten and I feel that the adminstration and faculty have the students at heart. They are always providing help for the parents in anyway possible in order for us parents or guardins to help our children learn.

    Glad my child is out of there. past 2 years have been hard. she is gifted student but other children of same talent got the spots...and it was overcrowded and the parents that we had didnt care or thought their child was the tops so they assumed that they should get special treatment. Am glad my child is moving on to middle school...NOT IN Osceola County.

    Great school! My daughter had trouble keeping up at other schools but at Kissimmee Elementary she is LEARNING ! (she's having fun too)

  • (10 years ago)

    My children attended Kissimmee Elementary for short while and I could not have been more dissappointed with the quality of teaching at this school. There is an overpopulation problem that needs to be addressed. I could not help but feel like a number when I walked in. The total lack of personable staff is discouraging. I am glad that I was able to remove my children from this school before they lost a complete year of their childhood education!
