    I agree with all the others Zolfo Elementary School is the best in the county for student success and achievement and has the best reading program! The teachers are all superior and are very caring as well. I'm also impressed with their music class. The teacher is really doing a super job. My child is always singing and knows our national song! Also the administation is very supportive and understanding. Keep up the great work!

    I am in my 25th year as a teacher at Zolfo Springs Elementary. I was also a student here. The faculty and staff are supportive of one another and we also try our best to put our children first.

    ZSE has great teachers and a wonderful music program! Students score the highest in math and reading in the county! In music they learn so many instruments and The Star-Spangled Banner for which they received a National Award! Students are given high expectations and really do achieve and show much progress! No wonder they are an 'A' school!

    My family recently moved and my son had to leave Zolfo Springs Elem. I miss it. The staff was always friendly and helpful. The Administration seemed to know every students name. The cirriculum is student still based. My son excelled in the AR program and was rewarded for putting the extra time at homework. He enjoyed all of his teachers from Pre-K to first grade. I loved them all. They would talk to you whenever needed and encouraged parent involvement. The student pick-up I truly miss. It seemed slightly long until I had to take my son to a different school. It really is organized and smooth. There are no kids running between cars and the staff places all the children in th cars with the right adult. I would recommend any student to this school. I truly miss this school and wished my family could have stayed.
