Kindergarden teacher was wonderful but the fourth grade teacher was so bad I had to pull my son out and drive him every day to another school. When a bright child gets straight A's from Kindergarten through third and suddenly turns into a C student in fourth, after 3 hours of homework every night, that tells me the teacher can't teach! Since I moved my son to a new school he's an A student again. Shocking.
The most recent entry I could find was from the end of the 2010-11 school year. I was forced to enroll my daughters into this school because my oldest has special needs and I was told that this was the only school that could accommodate her. Starting with the 80 minute bus ride both ways it has been nothing short of a disaster. When I tried to transfer her she was labeled a threat. Last year she had 3 teachers because they couldn't keep one, this year is becoming a nightmare already.
I find it interesting that several posts claiming great things are written on or close to the same date. Makes me wonder if the same person is promoting this...Parents need real genuine information to make a good decision for the kids.
I love the school my kids are in kindergarding and first grade. Mr. Wagner is an amazing teacher he has patiences for the kids and is very involve in making sure their upto date on their learning skills, he has great follow up too.Also the place programs and the staff are wornderful with the kids. Im so glad my boys have a great school to go to with great teachers and staff.
The faculty and staff are wonderful and the students are amazing!! I love the moon!
Caring teachers and administration; beautiful surroundings; active parents
Moon Lake has a great staff that is constantly working on the promotion of the whole child.
'The Moon' is kind of like its own community and everyone knows and cares about the students and each other. Lots of reasons to celebrate, always working toward offering the best to our students.
Our school is made up of hard working professionals who truly love children!
The teachers all work hard to meet every student's needs and set the students on the path of lifelong learning.
This school is filled with caring teachers. My son needed extra help in third grade and he received everything he needed to get up to grade level using resources and support staff at the campus. The have a wonderful program for student with exceptionalities as well.
The staff works exceedingly hard to help every student, and family, at the school. The parents and families continue to support their children, and our school, with more and more involvement through the PTA and volunteering! It's a great place to teach and it's getting better:)
I love MLES. It is a great school, the teachers are great and really care about the children. I am extremely happy with it. I have yet to have any problem or concern with any aspect of it. Go Manatees!!!
When we first moved here I was 'warned' about this school that it was not a good school. However, my son is going into his 3rd year at this school and we love it! The staff is wonderful and he has really excelled at Moon Lake. Keep up the good work!
