Silver Lakes Elementary School 3

Worst school my child has attended! The office staff treat you like no one with the exception of this one blond lady with curly hair who is super nice. Some of the administration and the school counselor act like the own the school and each and every parent and student at the school. THE PTA promotes they want your help, but when you offer the reject you. Teachers are pretty good, only reason I gave them a three star rating. I would change my child if I could but we are moving back to North Miami soon and its no use. Do not move your children here unless you want to be invisible and be treated unkind.

This school has high expectations of the parents and students. I love the fact that parent participation is expected and homework is part of the curriculum.

I wouldn't rate this school the worse but i wouldn't rate it the best. I'm torn with my feelings. I think the academic part could be better, I have mixed feelings on the staff and the level of care and attention to details. I've had to go to the school to many times regarding my son and bullying. I feel like I have to give him extra work because its not challenging enough. I really like his 3rd grade teacher but I think she is restricted by the higher powers on what she is allowed to teach and how she can react to students and their behavior. all and all its ok. Just get involved.

This is an excellent school. The staff is very caring. The parents are highly involved. My sons' teachers have all been very competent. I'm very glad to have such a good school close to home.

My son was a student since Kindergarten to 2nd grade. The education focuses in the lowest grade students; therefore they do not care about the kids in the average and above average level. For example, the 2nd grade math level was a review of the first grade math course and multiplication and division were not part of the 2nd grade curriculum. My son came back at the end of the school year with all his books with less than 50% completed and his teacher never assigned any single homework during the year (2012-2013). The principal never replies e-mails, letters, phone calls or any request for meetings or questions. I will never recommend this school to any kid in the average or above average level.

I have been very impressed by the teachers in this school. I was amazed at how well they handled all the children, their specific needs and helped them all thrive. I feel very blessed to have been in this Silver Lakes Elementary district! We have never had a problem with discipline/bullying at this school. Large PTSA presence, friendly staff in front office and cafeteria.

We love Silver Lakes Elementary! Our children (3)have wonderful teachers who love their jobs. It is nice to see a school that emphasizes the child, not the FCAT. There are many activities and opportunities for parents to get involved in their child's education. We are lucky to have this school in our neighborhood!

Ever since the Co-Teaching was introduced into this school, I have seen classrooms with too many students per teacher. I have 2 daughters in different grades, 4 & 2. I have seen various quality in teachers, some great, some good, some not so good. I would like to see smaller classrooms. I do not remember so much parental involvement to get good grades when I was going to school. These days, it appears to be the standard that all parents must abide by to ensure good grades. The operation of the school is exemplary though. Overally I rate the school an A-, but will pay close attention to see if the standards are dropping.
