    It is a wonderful school. My daughter began on Kindergarten last year. She didn't know English. Today her English is perfect and her grades are very good. Teachers are excellent.

    I love Joe Hall! Both of my daughters have attended this school since Kindergarten and they have both received a stellar education at this public school. I sometimes have to stop and remember that I am not PAYING a high end private school for what we are getting. The teachers and principal and all the volunteers at the school are all competent and care. Joe hall is a fantastic caring loving school. You would not be disappointed if your child attends Joe Hall especially if the principal is Mrs. Abreu. Continue to do the work your team and staff is providing.

    I have nothing but great things to say about the school and its teachers. My daughter started in PRE- K with Ms. Quintero and Ms. Gigi - they treated my little 4 yr old like their own. I love them they set a HIGH standard as to what her Kinder teacher should be like. This year I made sure that my daughter had one of the best K teachers and she has - Ms. Loguzzo is very sweet understanding and if there is ever something wrong she makes me aware - love her! Now there is a BLONDE ART teacher who IS NOT my daughters teacher but who "greets" all the kids in the morning on the side of the school - She is the RUDEST PERSON alive. If your children have her BEWARE !!

    I am so happy with this school. The organization the respect and care that the staff shows for the students and parents. The teachers want their students learn as much as they can and help them to be responsible with their work. Mrs Georgoulakis is one of the best my respect for her. Education and instruction depends from a team work (family and school) if one do not support the other is impossible to obtain the goal. I have change my kids from different schools because I hadn't found the excellence. Thank you

    My second child in this school has also scored very well in the FCAT this year. He is in the 3rd grade and moving on to the 4th after scoring a 5 and 4. I am very proud that we chose Joe Hall Elementary for our children. I would also like to show appreciation to two great teachers at Joe Hall Elementary. Mrs. Rubin (retired) and Mrs. Nierenberg (passed away). Both teachers contributed to my son's education. Thank you so much.

    Parents make sure your kids don't go with MRS Douce or MRS Garden Cruz they are the worst teacher I have been met in my life.

    Joe Hall Elementary truly is a great school. Everyone at Joe Hall starting with the custodians all the way to the Principal are very dedicated and care about our kids safety and education. I am so glad my daughter is in this school.

    My daughter has been going to Joe Hall since Kindergarten she is now in 4th grade. Now my son is just starting K and they both love the school and their teachers. I'm very happy with the school administration specially the principal and office staff. The teachers are great and very dedicated. Mrs. Paez Ms. Apleker Ms. Hoover Ms. Kelly and Ms. A.Perez are very gifted teachers. In general this is one of the best elementary schools of the county.

    Joe Hall Elementary is an outstanding school! As a parent one always wants the best for thier child. Joe Hall provides the children with an excellent education as well as a safe loving and nurturing environment. My daughter is a student there and she is happy to be a part of such a great place. She is eager to learn and enjoys going to to school. Some teachers that definitely deserve recognition for their oustanding work with the kids are Ms. Hoover Ms. Paez and Mrs. Baz-Gonzalez. These teachers love what they do and it shows in how they interact with the students.

    I love this school my daugther has been in Joe Hall since kinder garden and must of her teacher had been good unfortunetly because of the boundaries she has to go to Zora Neale witch i am not to happy about.My daugther is upset a nd sad to leave Joe Hall and so i am.I think the should deal with the boundries differently if old students are in the school already they should stay there not pulling them out and taking them to another schoool.I know this is going to affect my daugther in a negative way....When making this kind of desicions they should think about the children.. Mrs H Roman is the best teacher and the new principal is great!

    I have my son studying at Joe Hall elementary in fifth grade.He is very fortunate to have Ms.Ana Martin as his fifth grade teacher. She is at the same time a mother a friend and above all a great teacher to all her students. My son loves her and respects her the same way he loves me and I am very happy to see that. I am sure my son is going to miss her ( not only him all the students in her class are going to miss her) next year as they move to Middle school. Mr.Santiago is also a great teacher . He is a little strict with the kids to keep them on their tasks but very loving and is trying to prepare the kids for the middle school environment. Ms Valdez is also very loving and works with the kids individually if they need help.

    I have a daughter thats in the 2 grade..i'm so happy with the school and the teachers are just great she had ms. rego for kinder and her mother mrs.rego and now has ms. hoover and my daughter has come a long way.All three teachers have worked very hard to help my daughter excel. They keep an excellent communication with me and they let me know always if my daughters needs extra help and they have always been on top of her and they have made sure that she does not fall back. I'm truly happy and thankful for such an excellent school and no wonder they are an A school!

    I love love love this school I am so happy with the teachers that my kids have Ms. Reeser in K is so sweet and kind and very understanding I can't imagine making a first impression of school better than she can and Ms. Paez is awesome pays so much attention to the needs and advancement of her students I love her way of explaining situations and how maybe a bad grade once in a while can just be an off day for the student as long as their average grading is good. I cannot imagine my kids in any other school...the only thin g that bothers me is that the PTA is almost non exsistant seems to be hear of but never seen. Wish I had join back when they started the year I probably could have done alot.
