Slater Elementary has been a magnificent school. I have two daughters who both love school and are honor students because they were fortunate enough to attend Slater Kindergarten through sixth grade. My youngest daughter will graduate 6th grade this year and move onto middle school and I know our entire family will miss the Slater teachers and staff members. My daughters thrive as honor students all because the teachers and staff cultivate an excellent learning environment for the students to thrive. The front office staff and the teachers are always so welcoming & make us all feel like family. If you are considering enrollimg your children in Slater Elementary parent to parent you & your children will not be disappointed. Your children can only benefit from attending this school as my children have blossomed into smart responsible young ladies who love school because of their experience at Slater Elementary. This school is highly recommended and is very deserving of 5 stars!

I am soo impressed with this school. My daughter had separation anxiety and was so bad when I would leave her. The teachers and staff made her feel safe. I love the communication and involvement I have in my daughters schooling. I am sadly moving this year and of all things I will miss it's the school that's a top one. I am so Appreciative if how they treated us and how my daughter has progressed in her education. Mrs. Rojas and Ms Hiedi are great!!

The kids love it here they have been here 3 yrs. and do not want to leave. The new principle is wonderful, and the change in the atmosphere all over the school is amazing. The kids are all excelling in all aspects of their education. The teachers are very concerned about the education every child is getting, and show that to the parents and children all the time. Our test scores are improving and the moral of the students and teachers is wonderful, and people are happy to be here. Keep it up Slater!!

At first, I was concerned about the reviews I read about Slater and the scores they received, but we have had an excellent experience over the past 2 years. My son's Kindergarten and 1st grade teachers have been top notch and I feel they also have good support on hand to help give the children the attention that they each need to excel. I do wish that there was more parent involvement to help provide the school with more funding for things like computers and other extra-curricular activites. However, I am 100% satisfied with the staff and their focus on the children's education and I hope that the scores will soon better reflect the reality.

We moved our children 3 years ago from a private Catholic school to Slater which is our neighborhood school. What started as a nerve-wracking decision for us turned out to be the best one we ever made! We have been consistently impressed by the teaching staff; the longevity, level of education, and committment to the kids is fantastic! We feel our children have received a better academic education than they were getting in private school. I appreciate the attention they give to the specials classes (art, PE, music) and look forward to the after school enrichment activity program about to begin.

I have 2 boys who have been at Slater since Kindergarten. The Teachers here are the best in the county, hands down! They have always done whatever it takes to ensure that our kids get the best education possible. We have a new Principal this year, and I have already seen a significant amount of much needed improvement in our school. I asked her how long she would be with Slater and she responded 'until I retire' That tells me that she is dedicated to all of our student's here at Slater. We have a great PTA and a new enrichment committee driven by Slater Staff and Parents who want to give our kids an opportunity to expand their minds. What a great school. Thank You Slater Kristy

My daughter is in the fourth grade and has always attended Slater. If we moved, she would want to continue there and I would travel everyday to get her there. Her teachers have been outstanding! There is a new principal this year so we don't know very much about our new one. The office staff is wonderful. The art, music and gym teachers are well loved by the students. I would like to see more activities that involve parents. There were certainly more with the last principal. My daughter knows and likes the 5th and 6th grade teachers and can't wait to be in their classroom.

I put my daughter in Slater in 5th Grade. She had the best teacher she's ever had. I know people my age who went to Slater, and had these same teachers and loved them. I think this is a wonderful school, and the principal is very nice. I've never had a problem what-so-ever. I would recommend this school to anyone, as I was recommended to it from at least 10 people who attended or had kids who go to Slater.

The teacher of my child was wonderful and can't be beat! I wish she would change schools! The principal leaves a lot to be desired though! She was one of the deciding factors of why we left. A few of us believe that she is biased against our religious beliefs. I truly believe that she should not work with children. Neither should some of the other staff and aides. They treat children with such disrespect that it tears down their self-esteem! The academic program does not work with each student individually therefore some excel and some are left behind! Sports teacher was wonderful! Music too! Parent involvement is ok. I'm glad we changed schools though!

I have two children who attend Slater in grades K and 2. The teachers are great at this level, however, I have heard from more than one person that once the children reach 5th grade, all goes down hill in this school.
