My daughter has an IEP and took the FCATs in 2014 at Claude Pepper Elementary and they did not follow the requirements on the IEP. They gave her no assistance and she wasn't allowed to use a ruler to read the text in language arts. They had her IEP document.

I have a son with special needs. He has been in this school for only one month but I have to say that they helped him making him to feel comfortable and making his transition to this new school a very smooth one. They make him feel just like any other kid from the school. He doesn't feel different because he is not being treated in a different way. Love the teachers and the after school care program is a great! Love this people from the After school Care program.

The principal is super. But until they change the office staff this school can not improve because as parent, needs to guide or assistance. The staff office are arrogant and anti- professionals in their treatment. It's a shame that this situation happens. Should you take a training on how to handle situations and help parents.

Very structured school and there are excellent academic options for the grade levels. The students are challenged and encouraged to put forth maximum effort. The Principal and Assistant Principal are very approachable and involved. I had concerns when the administration changed for the last school year but Dr. Diaz and Mr. Percy are spectacular. This is a great school! Highly recommeneded, my child has been a student here for 4 years. The only thing I wish they would consider- although I love the uniform concept- I wish the students could wear jeans with the school shirt.. very smalll concern. :) Excellent teachers work here as well, I am impressed by every teacher my daughter had and I am no easy sell. Very good place to educate your children!

this school has terrible front desk staff and a non friendly environment. The principal is not personal and does not show any leadership capacity. However, the PreK program for special needs children is excellent. The teachers are totally committed to their job and love what they do. The school needs a more friendly parent involvement to make this school excellent. I will not recommend this school to anyone.

Both of my children attend this schoool. I'm very happy with the teachers but not so happy with the Sped Program in the school. My children are not getting the services they need and I'm looking at other programs at different schools.

My daughter just started attending Claude Pepper and she is in the 4th grade. The teacher has been very cooperative with her progress. He often has detailed feedback about her grades. The teacher seems to care about my daughters academic progress. I am able to monitor her grades with their new program that is available online. The curriculum is great, I appreciate what the teachers' are trying to instill in the students. Overall I am very satisfied with the school and I have a good feeling about the rest of the year. The only complaint I have is about the admin staff, they often seem to be bothered by the parents who come in the office.

My son attended this school K-5th. The former principal was arrogant but the new one seems better so far. Most of the teachers are OK but some screeam too much at the students. The gifted program is good as well as music and art. The PE is a joke where students watch videos about PE or sit on the floor the whole class because one of them talked and bothered the teacher!!! The administrative staff are extremely rude and act as both parents and students are bothering them. The safety is an issue where students roam the school unsupervised in the morning and after release with all the doors of the school open and there is access to the school from a nearby park that is always open. Attendance is important for the school staff so is being on time. Overall it is an OK school with room for improvement.
