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!!!
I have two kids at Silver Lakes Elementary. The administration and teachers have been wonderful thus far. Both of my kids are in the dual language program and are doing great. The principal and assistant principal are hands on and very involved with every aspect of the school. The PTSA is also great in organizing family activities throughout the year. We have many options in our area including charter but I wouldn't want my kids at any other school. Proud to be a Flamingo!
