There are some teacher's who I've encountered that have been wonderful. However, the administration is lacking and not all of the teacher's have the children's best interests at heart. Sad. If I had another choice, I would send my children elsewhere...

My son has been attending SES for 3.5 years. I have nothing but good words to speak about the teachers and administration staff. If I ever had a problem with a teacher / student, a simple email / phone call was enough to have the situation resolved. The current leadership at SES is amazing and I am very grateful to have such involvement with this school. My son and I shall miss the SES due to job relocation.

I homeschool my child now because he was choked and actually had marks on his neck. The staff at this school especially the principal and assistant principal did NOTHING to help. The whole year (2008-2009) was a terrible experience for my child. He was scared to go to school due to the lack of concern for his saftey. We had meetings with the school and the board of education due to the unsafe conditions at this school. In my opinion if you care anything about your child do not send them to Saks Elementary!!!!

This is a great school for my child to attend and also to for me to work for. I am blessed with a wonderful staff and wonderful teacher for my child this year. The custodians do a wonderful job of keeping the school very clean and presentable. The principal and Asst. principal do a fantastic job and love our children here.

I have 5 kids who have/are going through this school. I would not trade it for anything. I have had the opportunity to move, I choose to stay where I am because this school, its principal and teachers would do anything for their kids. Mr. Baeza is an amazing, caring and dedicated principal.
