Supports LD students: Disagree


- a
Other than the GT program, which essentially is not a learning difference, but a learning excelleration, no the school does not support learning differences.

Effective school leaders: Disagree


- a
The principal is basically non existent. He clearly doesn't care much about the students progress, other than test scores or the teachers, other than pursuing test scores.


Develops character: Disagree


- a
I hear the message regarding compassion and respect, though I do not see it being followed through in the children. Bullying is an issue here.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
The teachers are, for the most part, caring and involved. They seem to genuinely care for the students.

Amount of homework: Neutral


- a
Some teachers view homework as a productive activity however, some view it as busy work. There is too much, at a young age. Although I've been able to discuss the amount with most teachers, there is one teacher who refuses to let up. More effort should be put toward CLASS WORK, not homework




- a
The teachers are, for the most part, great. The new principal could care less about the school. In order to 'fit in', you must be part of the PTA. If you are not, you are basically shunned. There is a bully problem at the school, however no one wants to deal with it or admit it. There have been some pretty mean things said to my kid from kids who fit the 'in crowd' or PTA community. If you're a sheeple kind of person, you'll do fine. If not, avoid this school at all costs.

My child just finished up kindergarten at KLAKES. To my knowledge, and based on our experiences thus far, the school is a great elementary school as schools go. However, our kindergarten teacher was pregnant this year and missed an abnormal amount of days (we're talking 15+ easily). This without a doubt effected our child's learning experience. We feel alternative accommodations should've been made early on in the year, and that the responsibility of 20 young minds during such a crucial time in their development should not have been intrusted to someone so focused on other things. We will not be moving schools, but are hoping for a better year in first grade. All in all, if you plan on paying for full day kindergarten here, it may leave much to be desired.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
All of the teachers that we have dealt with have our children's best interest at heart. They are willing to go the extra mile to make sure that our children are not only having fun learning, but also understand the content of what they are learning. They strive to make their year the best it can be both socially and academically. These teachers are wonderful and create a learning atmosphere in which the children feel safe but also valued!

What a breath of fresh air! We transferred from a nearby high pressure, high scoring school after my children began to hate school. Now they love school! Our new principal as of January 2013 focused first on creating good relationships with the staff and parents and it's made a big difference in the feel of our school. We made a big effort to help the lower achieving students with math last year and they are doing great! Our gifted and talented programs is project based and the kids enjoy working in an environment like the real world. Our general ed teachers are stable and caring. This school has a diverse community of families and we celebrated it with an International Fair last fall. A huge success! Join us - our kinder teachers are fabulous!

My children have been attending this school since 2006. We chose this school because it was our neighborhood school, and had good enough test scores. Since 2006, they have had 3 different principles, and I have never had a conversation with any of them, ever. However, the teachers at this school are amazing!!! Every single one of them! They are all very experienced, dedicated, and good at their jobs. When we moved out of the area, we stayed at KLES because we were so impressed by the teachers. They are what make this school so great. My kids have learned so much from them, including how to be a wonderful person (which is not something they test for). We love this school!
