Sarasota County Schools Reviews
I have spent my student life in the Sarasota County District. I have enjoyed every minute of it. My first years were at Toledo Blade Elementary a very old but, lovable school, my other 3 schools were almost new with excellent facilities, with great teachers and good administrations. They make you feel important and planted on me the seed of education. The most important thing for me to change is the high tolerance to bullies and to students that disrespect authorities(teachers and staff), vandalize, and don't pay the consequences. The district should be more strict to actually prepare us for the real world. Another thing I would like to improve is the variety of sports offered at the middle school level. Basketball, Volleyball, track and tenis are the only choices.
My name is Jayla King. I went to Booker High all four of my high school years and I've had quite a journey. I am now a senior graduating in 2019. Booker High School offers; VPA, many clubs, and a successful life. The teachers are outstanding and go out of their way to make sure the students are college and career ready. Booker High School also has high security which makes students feel safe. Sarasota County Schools are great!
Kindergarten Prep now has gone beyond VPK and has added an excellent STEM program for their Kindergarten and First Graders. Their teachers go above and beyond by helping every child succeed and challenges them to further their knowledge by using hands-on science, technology, engineering and math programs. Their Kindergarten and 1st Grade, "Knowledge Is Power" gifted classes provides a great foundation for children that need a more stimulating atmosphere. I feel my child is graduating with great confidence in every aspect of her education.
