Principal’s Message

Greetings from the Principal!

August 2023

Welcome to Coral Park Elementary School and the 2023-2024 school year! It is an exciting new year where we welcome all our students back on campus and encourage our entire school community to

Spread Your Wings…Together We Will Reach the Stars!

On behalf of the administration, faculty, and staff of Coral Park Elementary (CPE), I welcome you to our remarkable school. As a school of academic excellence, Coral Park Elementary offers a rigorous science, technology, mathematics, and reading program seamlessly integrated into the students’ daily curriculum. Students in grades PK-5 collaborate to develop hands-on STEAM projects and take part in the rigorous academic programs offered at our school. The Extended Foreign Language (EFL) and NEWLY Expanded Gifted Education programs provide students with the opportunity to augment their learning and reach new academic heights. We are excited to continue to enhance our academic offerings and provide our students with choice programs that will allow them to reach their maximum potential. Additionally, our athletics, arts, and extracurricular programs are designed to create a well-rounded learner ready to take on the world!

Recognized by the Florida State Board of Education as a School of Excellence, our highly qualified staff work tirelessly to provide students and their families with a world-class learning experience. The collective efforts of our staff and students earned us the 2022-2023 Gold Steam Designation! We pride ourselves in creating a dynamic school setting, which values individual differences, while nurturing the hearts and minds of its students. We are excited to continue to recognize the academic achievements of our students with our National Junior Honor Society Chapter and expand our service programs to have a greater impact on our surrounding and broader community. From Pre-K to Grade 5, our teachers and students reach for the stars each day!

The health and safety of all our students continues to be our number one priority. The school has made remarkable efforts in implementing an arrival and dismissal plan that maximizes the safety of our students, parents, and surrounding community. With the ongoing support of our school district, our School Resource Officer is present daily to help facilitate a safe learning environment. We thank you for your support of all school procedures and efforts to ensure the safety and wellbeing of every member of our school and community.
