  • Great School. The Staff, Teachers and Guidance Counselor are caring and give attention and their knowledge to all the Students. Coming from a private school, I as a parent , did not know what to expect but they are great!

  • I am in fifth grade at Calusa Elementary and I am in (...) class. First let me state that Calusa is an A rated school. I love going there every morning. All the teachers are so nice and helpful and so are all the workers there. It's a great school. Kids are nice to each other and there are many programs that help kids. It's just such a great school!

  • Our daughter has only attended the elite private nursery schools in Boca Raton since she was two years of age. We were never satisfied in her development until she attended Calusa Elementary school and had Miss. Hall as her teacher. Our daughter just amazed us every week how she was progressing. We highly recommend to our friends to consider Calusa Elementary prior to continuing the private school route.
