    My kids just transferred to this school from another state. The teachers so far are very friendly and approachable. Both of my children's teachers send home communication sheets that clearly lay out what the children will be doing the following week. The afterschool "daycare" that is associated with the school is terrible. The women that work the program sit on their behinds and yell at the kids the whole time. Mine where there for a week and every day when I would drop them off and pick them up all the kids where sitting on a filthy floor watching movies that have fowl language in them. For snack the kids were fed doritos and told they have to go to the water fountain for drink. Both my children told me that the women that work there are very friendly to the grown ups and as soon as the parents would leave they yell at the kids with a bullhorn.

    Bob Sikes works hard to challenge students but in a way that will make them come to school with a smile. Students know that this is a safe place to learn social, athletic and academic skills.

    Love the school and the principal is wonderful. I have 4 children that attend this school. We have been at this school for 3 years and have always been welcomed be the principle teachers and staff. Some of my children have problems, learning, and behavioral, and all the staff has been very commited to helping them over come their own indivdual issues. I always recieve keep great communication form everyone. They are the only school in the area that I have found that was able to help children with needs and that was willing to actually take the time to HELP them. One of my children that has a learning disibility not only was moved into a general education class, but has also made all A's and 2 B's on the report card. I am amazed by the effort that everyone at the school puts into every child!

    Schools Office staff is very friendly and professional. Some teachers are not. We had a bad experience with one teacher. She was too busy with her own kids attending the same school and she did not have time to address students that were falling behind. She went to the extend to state that my child had a mental syndrome and he should be put in a "special" school. I had him evaluated by a professional and he is fine. He was frustrated. He got transfered to another public school a week before the FCAT test, very timely. He got tutoring by caring, and dedicated teachers, he made the FCAT scores that year. The school focus on favorites or teachers pets if the parent volunteers in the class or school. I felt at one point that the teacher needed diversity training too.

    Bob Sikes is a great school! My 2 children love their teachers and I'm welcome in their classrooms at any time. Music,Art and PE are offered and add variety to the school day. Educational standards are high and it has been rated an A+ school for several years.

    The office staff is friendly and very nice but, the complete educational process is severely lacking. School is only dedicated on making the FCAT scores and the teachers only care about one thing and that is the score for FCAT. Hours of homework nightly. Not a good environment.

    School is not adequately focused on supervision of students. Safety and learning could be greatly enhanced if teachers & administration were more focused on paying attention to students closely. If your child struggles or has attention problems, they could get lost easily in this school. If your child is extremely responsible, at the top of his class, and needs little teacher supervision, this school will be fine.

    My wife and I have two children that attend Bob Sikes ELementary. The faculty and staff are very friendly. We get frequent feedback from the teachers and school about our chlidrens' progress. The open-door policy of the administration adds warmth to this already charming school.

    Teachers are not in touch with their students. Bullying is a constant problem and the children are out of control on a regular basis.

    We absolutely love this school. Our daughter struggled in her first year at a private school, and did not get the individual attention I felt she should have for the price we were paying! We transferred her here, and she has learned so much this year. The teachers are excellent about communicating with me as to what she needs to work on, what she has accomplished, etc. Wonderful school!

    School has had frequent changes in principals since 1997. The result has been frustrated staff and a lack of continuity in the way parents concerns are addressed. All five of my children attended this school. Each year I volunteered in the classroom. I finally transfered my son to another school. He began to love school again and despite having to repeat the third grade returned to being a happy student.
