Imagine School at Cortez Park opened in 2001 for students in kindergarten through 8th grades. The school offers small class room size to provide students with the attention they need to achieve their goals in a nurturing learning environment.
Along with core subjects, the school offers a variety of other activities students can enjoy including painting, theater, dance, chorus, computer arts, football, soccer, basketball, cheerleading, softball, baseball, physical education classes, volleyball, yearbook, student council, newspaper, and Science & technology.
The school has a diverse student body with around half of the students being Hispanic.
All parents express their positive experience with the school. All stating that their children are doing well and that they enjoy going to school every day. Teachers are caring and work with students on an individual basis which helps the students enjoy going to school.
The sad part about Imagine School is that their AIMS testing scores are below state averages. This school is about the same with not as many students passing the exams in the core subjects. In writing, more students passed than the state average; however, in reading and math the percentage was below the average. 4th graders were higher than the average in math by 1% with reading, writing, and science below average. 5th, 6th, and 7th graders were all below the state average in reading, writing, and math. 8th graders showed a huge improvement with higher percentages than state averages in reading, science, writing, and math.
You should learn more about the curriculum since most classes have a lower percentages of students passing the exam than state averages. This does not show very well when students are not passing the exam in core subjects. The main reason as 10th graders in order to graduate high school must pass the exam.
