I opened DLE in 1982. I planned, developed and wrote the grants to finance the Sand Pine Nature Center that Deltona's current mayor burned to the ground following the 5 hurricanes of 2004. Next to Deltona Middle School its the worst place I ever worked. Even the Supt wants out of Volusia County, but no one else will take the job!! Douglas Bowman / retired

Great school. Teachers do love to help. They are very friendly and fun. A lot of parents volunteer as well. Over all my child has learned a lot in a very short time. and there is great comunication between teachers and parents.

Both of my kids went to DLE. If parents had a problem with either the teachers OT the office staff they must not be easy to please. DLE is a very homey environment and everyone is always so friendly and warm.

School has very low educational level. After moving away from this school into a good school system in Texas my kids are much behind the kids here. Teachers don't communicate to parents hardly at all. We also have a sun with Asperger's and the teachers counselor and principles knew nothing about autism and/or how to treat and react to my son . This ended up being a daily call at about 9 am to come pick him up from school . I would avoid all Deltona schools if you value your kids education

This school has some great teachers. The principals are no good. They spend more time in the parking lot moving cones than they do being involved in what's going on in the classrooms. We need a new staff at this school.

My third grader is required to be quiet and sit in her seat all day long with little movement. Expectations are not age appropriate, and the teacher points out student weaknesses in front of their classmates, humiliating the student. I've tried working with the school and have gotten no where. It breaks my heart to have a child who comes home crying because her teacher treats her poorly. Add to it homework which asks subjective questions and then demands exact answers, and you've got a sure disaster on your hands. My A/B student has been getting D's and F's because of this.

I am very happy to have seen the great improvements on my daughte'rs reading and math skills. I only have DLE to thank! They have helped me with tips on how to work with my daughter's school work, while we work as a team. The teachers and staff at DLE are very nice and helpful. I can't wait to see what develops when my daugther goes onto the 3rd grade.

As a former student here, I like it. Great staff, great teachers, the lunch ladies can do a little better, and the special area teachers are amazing. I only had one complaint- the bathrooms. There are broken tiles, clogged sinks, and profanity. I hated it. What are these children doing to this amazing school?

We transfered to this school during this year. The home work is intensive and the curriculum challenging, but the kids learn. The school could do with better front office professional etiquette. They are usually not very polite. As always elementary school teachers don't like email or the phone. I continually suggest they follow middle and high school standards and move into the technology age. "Note" in the backpack is not an effective form of communication, not in the past 20 years any how.

Both of my children attend DLE and I could not be any happier with their teachers. Mrs Reynolds and Miss Vogel have been amazing. Also the office staff is very, very helpful. They are always willing to help and I feel welcome every time I am there. Administration is a weak but overall a great school.

This is the second year at Deltona Lakes Elementary for both of my children. While my experiences have been mainly positive with their teachers, I have concerns about the administration and front office staff. I believe the principal has her own agenda and is not truly committed to the safety and success of her students. Some of the teachers appear to have their own cliques and are not all responsive to parents' needs and concerns. I am grateful that my son will be moving on to a new school next year and am exploring other options for my daughter at this time.

I have taught in 4 schools and 3 districts in central florida and this is the worst that I have been in. The administrative leadership is completely lacking and most teachers are over confident and care only about test score as opposed to the children themselves. On a postive note, this school can come together as a community like no other in times of need for others! I would not have my children go to this school! I would not have my child go to any Volusia County Public School for that matter!

This is one of the worst shcool I have ever dealt with in 12 years. The staff is rude. The teachers did not seem to have enough time. Anytime I ask a questions about the class room activites I am told by the teacher I do not have enough time. I would not send my child there again this is our first and last year at this school. I think the School board needs to investigate the issues here.

My daughter is attending Deltona Lakes for the second year now, she is in the special needs Pre-K class. Her teacher Ms. Ree and each and everyone of my daughter's team at school are wonderful!They each opened their arms to her and make her feel loved on a daily basis. The front office staff, Nurse Terri, her therapists all go above and beyond. I am forever grateful for all they do for her and love them all dearly for it. Great Job Ladies, We love you!

My younger step-daughter has been in Deltona Lakes since Kindergarden, now she's a 5th grader also my older step-daughter was a student here from kindergarden to 5th now is in 8th grade so their father has dealt w/ this school many years and Deltona Lakes has the best teachers & staff, I was told by her father & also from what I've seen so far I can agree w/him on that! I highly commend all their employees for their hard work and great communication they have w/the parents & how great they are w/the kids :) This school in my book gets an A+.

I think this school is one of the worst I have ever dealt with in my 18 years of being a parent. The staff has an attitude about parents asking questions. The teachers do not want the parents involved. They feel they are the rulers and parents have no say in the childs education.

I agree. This school lacks communication to parents. I tried all year to make sure my daughter was on track and they tell me 1 week before school ends that she'd be left back. What happened to the caring of our childrens education. They worry more about these FCATS then our kids. The principal doesn't even know what's going on. She gets half the information and doesn't make any effort to help further. What's done is done and she moves on.

for the average student this school is lacking in education. The school prides itself on the special needs students. they do a tremendous job in that department, but it is at the expense of the other children I believe. average teacher classroom is over 24 students. My son's 5th grade teacher was a co-teacher. they did not want parents involved with the student.

Very dissatisfied with Deltona Lakes Elementary. The campus is very dingy and there is a lack of supervision during school hours for the small children on campus. Also, they are always begging for money and donations. To me, this is tacky. I give this school a thumbs down.

For the person who spoke of too many kids in a class... ALL of the schools around Deltona have about the same number. You can thank Jeb. Deltona Lakes Elementary is an awesome school. Teachers are awesome. Especially the ones in the ESE dept that I deal with a lot as I work in the school system as a related service.

I write this as a former student and present parent of a child at this school. My child has special needs and is very much at home at Deltona Lakes. I have had great support most of the way around. My childs and the pre-k teacher didn't really 'click' well (didn't do anything wrong at all) - but all teachers after that have gone above and beyond and have really become part of our family.

I did not like the teachers attitudes toward our children. There were no attempts to help our child in any way. The school we transferred to immediately got them into tutoring programs. The new school also motivate the children with praise not punishment. We are buying a new house and specifically looking for houses NOT in Deltona Lakes District. I would suggest looking into other schools as well. The school itself was beautiful and the campus is wonderful. Office staff was amazing, But as far as the education staff they left a bad taste in my mouth. I regret putting my children through that and am thankful they still look forward to learning.

As parent and former pre-school Teacher, I understand that it takes the envolvement of everyone to help the students, teachers and school administration to be successful. And a parent I have witness the Deltona Lakes Elementary Staff soars to excellent by preparing the students and help them to achieve the greatest in academic success. I look forward to more exciting projects from Deltona Lakes Elementary Principal and faculty. Their efforts are 'No Child Left Behind'. The quality of education your child receives depends on well you participant with the PTA, your childs Teacher and well, you communicate with your child daily. Deltona Lakes Elementary strives to achieve these goals everyday by, keeping the campus safe, providing a academic successful curriulum. An excellent Music program, Spanish and Science offered to Kindergartens. And a well respected Coach staff. A creative Art Teacher And awesome Teachers of the ESE, ESOL programs. ~Keeping The Eagles Soaring! 2005

My oldest child went to this school from K-4 and my next child from K-2. We have just moved and see such a huge difference between our old school and new one. The teachers at Deltona Lakes are best teachers I've ever seen. Teachers treat the children with respect and encouragement. There is very good communication between teachers and parents. The children were always excited about learning and the test scores showed it. Deltona Lakes is a safe, clean friendly school where kids can go learn and be happy.
