This school is not competing at all with the academic level offered by the surrounding charter or public schools.
Its rating downgrade proves it.
Luckily for concerned parents and those who value their children's education, many better options are available in the Pembroke Pines and Miramar area.
This school has learned their student as if they were their own, they have lots of activities for all the children, the aftercare program is excellent with various of time slots dedicated to learning and doing!
another plus is all the attention and love the our children with special needs.
This is a great school and the teachers are exceptional. My son got an early start in their ESE program and I am proud to say that he is now in the gifted program. If that is not short of miracle work, I don't know what is. In my experience, most people that post negative comments about this school, is because of their own lack of involvement in their kid's education. Sending your kid to school and expecting the teachers to do all the work for you is the wrong attitude. Take the time you waste posting negative comments and spend it with your kid helping them with their homework or going over a test they did not do well in, so you can see where they need help.
Bad supervision at dismissal; unavailable principal; obese PE coach; unstructured homework assignments in upper grades; chaotic parking and often no police officer to deal with double and triple car loops; weak science an social studies curriculum; extremely poor aftercare program (young students or graduates doing a mere babysitting job). Things went downhill over the past year; SLE used to be a good, trusted school. Very sad.
This school is absolutely fabulous. All teachers and administration do it because they truly care about the students. The special programs they have teaches kids and everyone matters. I have been at the school for 7 years with my kids and have 3 more to go. Wouldn't go anywhere else! The PTSA there also is very helpful in getting academic programs for the kids to benefit from. Don't listen to anyone else, see for yourself that this is a great school!!!
