    Camelot is a great school and I feel unfair the comments posted last year about the VPK program. I think it is a very good program and the teachers are very caring about their students. They talk with every parent and care about the success of every student. I think that most of the parents agree with me. My little one is in VPK and she has learned a lot since the beginning of this year. Besides they make great activities for the children and are very creative. They help them to develop a love for reading. The media center is very helpful with the parents and the children. My first one is in 1st grade and the two children love to read and they love their school very much. They have Art Music PE etc. You can see the appreciation of the children for their teachers when they are growing in this school and they remember all of them with love. When the children hug their current and old teachers that gesture can tell the quality of the education more than words can say. They have a School Wide Behavior Plan that is remarkable about who are the Camelot Noble Knights. Go Camelot Knights! You are great!! This school is really a place when the dreams begin! - A parent

    Camelot Elementary School is an "A" great school it is like a family. I have two children attending this school one in 1st grade and the other one in VPk and they have had wonderful teachers. Most of the teachers know my children by name and they really care about our little ones. The principal is very involved in the school. They have great activities for families like Media night Movie night music festivals fall and holiday festivals etc. One of my children has an IEP and since he started in VPK all the teachers and therapists have been more than supportive with us. They really want to make a difference and make a better present and future for all the Camelot knights. My children and our family are very proud of our school. We came from other state (NY) three years ago and it was a wonderful surprise how well things are handled in this school and in the county. - A grateful Camelot Parent

    Camelot has one of the best VPK programs in the county. The VPK teachers are amazing and really give the love and attention that all 4 and 5 year old need as their first experience at school. NOt only do they show the kids they care but they push them to the next level in their education. The teachers get kids from not knowing their alphabets or their numbers to knowing how to read basic sight words in 5 months. I could not have chosen a better place for my daughter. When I did my research with other parents that had attended the VPK program before and all they told me was that she could not have any better teacher than the VPK teacher at Camelot andwere very happy of how much their kids knew by the end of the year. The kids are more than prepared by the time they go to kindergarden. Besides the VPK teachers the whole staff in the school are very friendly and always ready to help and make you feel your needs are fulfilled. Camelot is a great school with exceptional teachers!!!

    The VPK program in this school is not only a joke but a house of horror where the so called disciplinary tactics used could psychologically scare a child for life; the teachers of this program are nothing but glorified baby sitters with unethical and unprofessional approach to learning. They make no attempts to conceal their favoritism towards certain parents and students. The classroom is so much better when substitute teachers take over. The principal of this school is just a principal by title she does not have the set skills to manage an institution of learning of this magnitude parents complaints and concerns are not taken or looked into seriously but instead she is an enabler and always ready to side with her incompetent teachers. As a parent I could not put up with this anymore I had to withdraw my child from the horror in this school no regrets at all because he is in a better school where the teachers and principal know what it is to teach and educate future leaders.

    i am not going to rate a school i am going to rate the system. Why are there SO many "holidays" off . 2-days off during one week??? 1/16/12 then 1/20/12. the teachers and students get more days off then anyone i know. Why are they out @ 2 45 every day and on wednesday they get out at 1 45???? WHY There is way too much buracratic stuff in the system and not enough foucus on the children. If you listen to Steve Jobs the children should be in school till 6pm. LEARNING i agree with that !!!! how much money gets thrown at the public schools and America is not even in 1st 2nd or 3rd we are way at the bottom. When are we going to wake up and start changing these "relaxed" standards.

    My child attends this school for VPK. This school has been one disappointment after another. The registrar was very rude and unconcerned. Simple tasks became very difficult. The Pre-K teachers are very unprofessional. They make no attempts to conceal their favoritism towards certain parents and students. The best day this year was when both teachers were out and there were two substitutes. They are always late in the mornings which makes it very difficult to drop your child off in a timely manner. I have been late to appointments many times. The children are assigned homework involving concepts the teachers have not taught yet so these four-year-old children become very frustrated while struggling through their homework. My husband and I taught our child much of the curriculum at home to make up for the lack of instruction at school. The children are given cupcakes candy and other foods filled with sugar almost everyday. Our child comes home full of energy and with a stomach-ache. We regret choosing this school for VPK. We wanted to put our child in a public school rather than a daycare that offered VPK but we are now switching her to a daycare and are so much happier.

    First contact with a school as Pre-K it was a horror. Thanks God I found a better place for my child where she is learning and happy as a student.

    Although Camelot lacks a big playground or inside gym (as is common with the newer schools in FL) the teachers are exceptionally talented. I have 2 sons who attended from K-3rd Grade (until we moved) and they both learned to read like champs. The lunches were healthy and the principal is very hands-on & accessible. My only complaint is that one of my sons had to deal with a semi-bully during 1st Grade and I wish the school practiced its "zero tolerance" policy. Otherwise my boys learned a lot and especially liked their science teacher (who won a national award) and their art teacher. Due to statewide cuts the music & bilingual programs were cut but that was not Camelot's fault. All in all I would recommend this school.

    This is my son's first year at Camelot and i am very happy with his teacher's attention. She always returns the e-mails I send and we have the school agenda which is another way of communication.

    I have two boys at Camelot. We love this school. The teachers administrative staff and parents are wonderful. This school had to overcome a lot from overcrowding. Now it is just right. Way to go to the Principal and Asst. Principal for getting this school to where it is today!

    My 2 sons started this year at Camelot. I have seen my second grade learn so fast the English language it has turned from a challange to a enjoyable challange. He loves everything about Camelot specially his teacher. My younger one is in Pre-K and again he just loves going to school every day and that makes me happy. I appreciate the help of the staff.

    My daughter has just completed Kindergarten and she loved every minute of the learning environment. The teachers and support staff are very helpful and easy to reach. I feel my daughter received a very high level of learning and was very pleased to learn she was excelling in reading. I give this school an A+ and look forward to her 1st grade year. I feel the school offers a variety of after school programs to keep children focused on learning and being involved in their community. The science class and tech class are my daughters favorites and of course she loves PE. I do wish that more parents would get involved and help make Camelot become a school the community is especially proud of.

    I love this school- teachers are very helpful and are on top of their game. The kids do go outside and do different activities but what happens on those rainy days and in Florida there are a lot of rainy days. Teachers have been great so far and have keep me updated on every and any matter.

    This is my daughter's second year at Camelot. Even with the overcrowding last year I felt she had a great kindergarten year. This year with less students it is a close knit environment. The administrative staff is great and easily accessible to parents. We have been very pleased with the teachers our daughter has received both years.

    Wonderful school my son attended Camelot for 8 months while we transition into our new home. He not only felt welcome and loved but he also enjoyed danza an extracurricular activity were he learned to dance music from other countries. In the classroom he loved his teachers and classmates and he continue to excel on all subjects. Camelot make my son feel at home the transition was smooth and he had only good memories.

    I have mixed emotions about this school but maybe now that they have a new principal things will get better. Not such a hot school for accepting kids with learning disabilities such as adhd

    My daughter transferred to Camelot from the top school in the area 2 years ago. I worried at first but I was pleasantly surprised that she had a much more personalized educational experience more tailored to her learning style. She was struggling at her old school now she is a honors student. Camelot is a school where the children come first. Each child is encouraged to do their personal best and learn to respect each others differences. The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child. The principal is very much in tune with all aspects of the school and is a good solid positive leader who has the respect and support of his staff students and parents. Although my 5th grader is graduating on we have an incoming kindergartener and we look forward to being a part of the Camelot family for many years.
