    Many hardworking teachers but administrators and the district make it impossible to enjoy teaching. tudents have no motivation and parent support is minimal.

    Comstock is the best because we care about all of our students and parents. We at Comstock make sure that all of our students eat breakfast and lunch everyday so that they can be ready to learn. That why I know Comstock is the best Elementary School in Dade County

    I like This School my son attended pre-k for 2 years his teachers & Speech therapist were always ready to give suggestions on activities to help develop any area that he needed help on. Teachers who take really good care of all children my son liked going to school. The principal is a wonderful woman always on top of all issues pertaining to the safety of the children in the school. staff always attentive to anything that happened around the school. Safe & secure school.

    This is a school that has good and bad things but in general most of the the teachers work hard fo the benefit of our children. I want to thank Ms. Iglesias for her fine job and dedication she is not only a great teacher but a great human being. My daughter received her unconditional support as well as the rest of her classmates. I'm very grateful!

    I think thia is the worst school ever. I think that the only teachers who care about the students in this school are the esol teachers.

    One of our children is a former student of Comstock. All I can say is that after 6 months of his attendance we moved to another area just so he can attend a better school. The teachers were not attentive to his needs as a new student there and he had such a hard time adjusting that moving was the best alternative. We also noticed that the level he was being taught at was far lower than the school he had attended prior. We can't say that we would recommend this school to anyone.

    Comstock is a small school in a diverse grass roots community with a committed caring and capable team of ESE teachers who have had less resources than they should have to work with yet have somehow been effective in spurring academic growth and social development in their students. Administrative changes incorporating increased responsiveness to parents and support of teachers have contributed to positive changes at this school over the last couple of years. If you have an ESE child do not overlook Comstock!
