I have been very frustrated dealing with the principal to find out what is really happening with a situation. The school does withhold important information from parents.
I'M NOT AT ALL IMPRESSED BY THE STAFF AT THIS SCHOOL. THEY WITHOLD IMPORTANT INFORMATION TO CERTAIN PARENTS WITHOUT GIVING REASON AND THEY MAKE TOO MANY EXCUSES WHEN QUESTIONED ABOUT THEIR ACTIONS. IN ALL THE SCHOOLS THAT I HAVE DELT WITH OVER THE YEARS,,,,,,,,, THIS SCHOOL IS THE WORST. SORRY BUT THAT'S JUST HOW I FEEL ABOUT THIS SCHOOL.
My son attended MLE for all 6 of his elementary years. He has had quality teachers all but one year. His first grade teacher was terrible but thankfully she was gone after the year he had her. We went from really struggling at the beginning of elementary to all A's and B's by 5th. They offered after school tutoring (as well as 2 of his teachers offering to personally tutor him). I love it there and my daughter now attends. The staff is great and I genuinely feel like they care about my children even though there are more than 1,000 students at this school.
This is our second year at Mirror Lakes and we love it. The teachers are wonderful and very supportive! Kids and parents have a lot of opportunity to be involved!
My granddaughter has attended this school for 6 years now. It is a great school. It's nice to know that they know their students and the family. My grandduaghter is still known and talked to by all of her teachers through the years, and even the office staff know who she is and it's not because she gets in trouble. They are just a great school and work with parents to continue to provide excellent education by great teachers.
Outstanding school. No bullying tolerance, great security, excellent teachers!
They have done so much to help my son w/ his needs and all of these teachers put extra time and their own money into making sure the students are getting the best experience they can.I'm very happy w/ the goals that we have all achieved together.W/ out the guidance of these professionals my son would be so much further behind! Thank you Mirror Lakes
My child attended this school very briefly I found that they were overly concerned with appearences rather than reality. They had so many school regulations and they were concerned with the smallest of stupid details, he will not attend there next year. Some teachers were commited but you can't acredit the teachers to the school management. when the economy is so tuff people need to get intouch with reality.People are loosing their jobs and enforsing the smallest of rules can be absurd when people are having finantial problems.
Unfortunetly my experience has been that of dissapointment with this school. I have found the staff to be racists. Ofcourse you may find no complaints perhaps if you are of their preference, but my children and I were very much discriminitated against and they tried very hard to pretend that this was not happening.
My son attended this school for grades 3-5 after I had moved him from Lehigh Elementary. It was the best thing I ever could have done. All of the teachers are wonderful and supportive and the administrative and office staff were always helpful. My son's confidence was boosted by 200% after I switched him to this school.
I love Mirror Lakes, my daughter will be in the 2nd grade in 08-09, and she has been going there since Kindergarten. The teachers are wonderful with the kids and take the extra time to meet with parents. This school is in a deed restricted community, so therefore I feel safe when she is at school.
I love this school and it's staff. My oldest son is going into 3rd grade (06-07 year) and my other son is starting kindergarden this year. I have found that the teachers keep you informed of your childs progress and are very welcome to your input on your childs education. I only had a issue with one teacher and it was quickly resolved. In my opinion I think this school is Grade A+.
Great school with teachers that really care about the students. Many parents are involved in this school and there are many activities there.
I have found the administration at this school to be evasive a lot of the time. The academic programs would be nice...if they were consistant. I have only had experience on the primary level, but there are too many resources being used by the teachers and that allows for a lack of consistancy, a very important aspect in a young child's learning experience. If there are too many things shoved in their face, it takes entirely too much time to sort it all out. Just stick to a couple of resources, for better management.
