Worst school I've encountered. I had a child here that was bullied to the extreme and nothing was done. It got to a point where it affected her so much I had to start to take her to a neurologist because she started to develop extreme migraines. I spoke to the asst principal first and her additud was disgusting. Her answer to why my child would let other kids bully was because in a Hispanic household women are used to letting their husbands bully them and thats what they learn at home. Little did she know I've been a proud single mom since my child was 2! Never a boyfriend or male in my house other than my siblings for a visit. So I requested to see the principal she defended the thought so what did I do? That same day looked for an apartment and just moved completely out of Polk county. So, Hispanic single mothers out there planning to move AVOID this school by all means! Better yet avoid Lakeland PERIOD! Ohhh BTW I don't even look Hispanic.
My daughter attends Sleepy Hill through the Headstart program and I love it. The environment is inviting and the staff is extremely hands on and informative. My child was one of those kids that had a hard time in group settings, but has now blossomed into a social butterfly. Her love of learning has been nurtured, pushing her towards her full potential.
