I have gone to this school since kindergarten and I am now in 5th grade. This school has the best teachers, and I am a safety patrol in the gifted class. I have the best teacher there is in this school and I always had. I can wait to go to middle school because the one I have to go to (woodlands) sounds like a terrible school. The school I want to go to is Christa mcauliffe so I will have friends and it doesn't seem as bad as woodlands does. I know I am only a student but I surely recommend this school for your pk-5 grader.

My son attended this school for his last year of 5th grade and it was a fantastic year. They really have a caring staff at this school. The teachers and admin were genuinely nice. The school is a little old looking but loved that it was a small school compared to other area elementary schools. I only wished I'd moved into the area sooner. Great School.

I am considering moving to this school boundary with my 9 year old and soon to be 5 year old. I would like to know if Crystal Lakes have school chorus? Is this a uniform based school? What are the highlights of this school and sets it apart from the others?

I love this school. It is a great little neighborhood school. The kids feel comfortable because they don't get lost in the shuffle. The teachers are caring and I feel like we're very blessed to have our kids go here.

Most of the teachers are fabulous. The PTA is amazing. However, I think the principal is a bit out of touch and needs to focus more on educational aspects and less on minor infractions of the dress code. I also think she singles certain parents out and attempts to "give them a hard time" about minor things. Unfortunately, it seems sometimes her personal agenda outweighs the benefits of coordinating with genuinely involved parents. The Assistant principal is quite good and seems to genuinely care about the students.

Crystal Lakes Elementary has a truly amazing & dedicated staff rivaled by no other. The principal, nurse, teachers, counselors and coordinators take their roles in the students education and well being very serious and do whatever necessary to provide the best environment for the children. While arranging a 504 plan for my son, they went above and beyond what was required to ensure his needs were met. Even the disctrict staff was involved to resolve conflicts and serve the needs of my son. I cannot say enough about this school...they are the best I've ever seen and deserve the highest marks.

We are a NCLB family from another school that was awful. CLE..... what a wonderful environment! I love this school and the administration is amazing! I have nothing but the highest regards for all the staff here. Teachers make learning fun, teaching is not all about the 'FCAT' as in so many other schools. Lots to do, always something going on. High parent involvement which is key... teachers are happy to be here, as are the students. That says alot!! I'm soooooo glad and proud to be part of CLE!!!!

My child moved to Crystal Lakes from another school that he was very comfortable with. The teachers and administration made his transition very smooth. I was very impressed to see both the Assistant Principal and Principal out and about the campus. It's nice to see them supervising and talking to students.

Completely impressed! This was my son's first day of school ever. I think the whole staggered start for the kindergartners was a marvelous idea. That way the students were not overwhelmed. Worked out perfectly! Also there is great communication between parent and staff. No time delay at all I feel very well informed. I don't think my son could have gotten a more caring and understanding teacher either, Mrs. Gruenberg. We are truly looking forward to the rest of the school year.

I think that Crystal Lakes, like any school, has it good and bad points. I believe that some teachers are more adept at teaching and handling all different children and their personalties. I think that the principal is clueless and very cold. My child loves school and can't wait to learn. I believe that love comes from all of his teachers, including music, art & p.e. Overall he is very happy and learns a great many things.

I have had children at this school for 10 years running. Cursio-Graves principal is relatively new. The A rating is based on prior years. Extremely disappointed in the manner in which bright children are 'dummed down' rather than encouraged to succeed to their full potential. It is counter-productive to insist on such a 'balance' in each classroom rather than having any advanced opportunity groups. The ESE program my child was put in took time away from learning other subjects to be pulled out and spoon fed. My child did not substantially improve with it.

Not very happy with kindergarten teach, but I think I just got a bad seed. The SACC counselors are wonderful and very caring. The Principal is not very friendly either and seems clueless.

I am not really sure yet, as to how this school should be rated. Why is it that parents are not contacted right away when their child is disrupting? I dont think it is 100% the teachers' responsibility, parents need to pay attention to what the children are saying when they come home. This school is rated an A school, I'm still trying to figure this out, just because the attendance and fcats' are good shouldnt mean all bases are being coverd. Just my opinion, everyone has one.

My son entered first grade from another school and was well below grade level and disliked school. The 1st thru 3rd grade teachers helped hime find his strengths and encouraged hime to conquer his weaknesses. The teachers strong knowledge of reading and math instruction, team work and creative class organization saved him. He's above grade level and scored high on the FCAT.

I have two children enrolled, and I am very proud of the progress they have made at Crystal Lakes. The quality of the school is represented by the quality of education each child receives, and both kids are challenged by their teachers to do their best every day!
