Can only say good things about Stone Lakes Elementary! In a little over 3 months, it's incredible how much our kindergartener has learned to read. So far so good!
Are family is bless to be able to have are son in Stonelakes Elementary School!! The teachers, office employees, PtA!!! I recommend it 100%
Stone Lakes is truly a school of excellence! Dr. Kennerly is fantastic. She is a true leader and loves every child who comes through the door. She knows every child by name and their academic achievement. She is an amazing person and the teachers just want to work harder because of the leader. The teachers are so dedicated. They communicate with the parents and hold high expectations for the students. I guess this is why Stone Lakes is #1 in the county AND #7 in the state. It is a happy place to go every day!
This is a horrible school for students with disabilities. There are good reasons why the US Dept of Education Office of Civil Rights and the Florida Dept. of Education have investigated this school. Students with disabilities have been subjected to excessive physical and mechanical restraints, some restrained more times than entire counties have restrained all of their children.
Stone Lakes is again the No. 1 school in the District and the 7th best in the State. Congrats to Dr. Kennerly, the great staff, and the great teachers who are always there for our children. There is no better school anywhere with also the best Music, Art, Media, and PE programs around.
my children attended this school when it first opened in august 2006 until we moved again in september 2007. they also attended avalon about a block down the street. we lived in stoneybrook and my girls could walk through our gated community out the back gate and get to this school which is at the back gate. it is fantastic, safe, teachers are wonderful, everything is organized, the principal is the best! you will absolutely love this school!!
We moved from Georgia from what was supposed to be an A rated school in an expensive neighborhood and thought it was a good school until we got to Stone Lakes. This school absolutely blows my mind. Dr. Kennerly has made a point of personally introducing herself to all parents and teachers are amazing. I could not hope for more!
Stone Lakes is a terrific school! Yes, FCAT scores are high and that is something to be proud of! This school has many dedicated teachers and this neighboorhood has great kids and involved parents. It is true the principal is not well liked by some parents, but it takes a tough cookie to run a top notch school. The kids are getting a great education in spite of cut backs and a tough economy. Negative reviews are just realestate agents trying to beef up sales in the neighboring community. Stone Lakes and Stoneybrook are a wonderful place to live. Don't hesitate to send your child to school at Stone Lakes. My child is well prepared to go to middle school and loved all her teachers all 6 years she attended. It was a great experience and I wouldn't live anyplace else!
This school is excellent. This is the 3rd state my kids have gone to school in and we are impressed. I cannot express how caring the staff and teachers are. The office staff is always friendly and helpful. The class sizes are small and the teachers care so much about each child's progress. It is very easy to communicate with them about any questions or concerns. We love it!
Worst school in the world, such a disappointment after attending Avalon Elementary School which was excellent. Dr. Kennerly is a horrible principal in my opinion and should be replaced. All she cares about are test scores. She does not take the time to make sure the teachers are doing their job correctly. She does not return phone calls. There is also over crowding. She may fire a teacher with no replacement ready. In the meantime, kids are crowded into other existing classrooms. It is very uncomfortable for the students. The school is the complete opposite of Avalon Elementary which is excellent. That school has a true Captain. I wish the zoning had not changed. Don't move to Stoney Brook, or be prepared to home school. The homework will take a few hours nightly and you will see your child learns best from you. The teachers don't teach there. The teachers don't really care, maybe just about losing their jobs. Kids are simply numbers, test scores. That is all there.
Stone Lakes is among the best schools in Orlando. When it comes to education there is no one size fits all. We are happy with this school. They have higher standards. Our daughter is challenged academically every day. When we moved we had some concerns then we had a meeting with the administration and things have improved. Parents are always welcomed to share their concerns and suggestions. Communication is the key. Way to go eagles!
Dr. Kennerly only cares about scores and perfect students. This is the worst public school in the area, fortunetly we moved and changed my son to a really good school where the principal and the teachers care about the students. Every person have their own personality and it is imposible trying to create perfect students, poor kids that they don't even have the chance to be themselves. It is very frutrated to hear your child comming from school and telling you "mom I don't want to go back to that school", "I hate my life".; and it's even worse whe you talk to the principal and she doesn't do anything.
Stone Lakes has really become an excellent school thanks to our Principal Dr. Kennerly. Although she brought change this past year, it was change the school needed. My son will be starting his 3rd year at Stone Lakes and I couldn't be happier.
They give my children a great and fun learning expirence. Eagles ARE exellent
New principal this year. Totally changed our school. Principal has no plan, things are constantly changing. Children need stability. All the changes are showing with grades and how kids are acting. Principal only focuses on tests and scores. Not happy, thinking of pulling my children out next year
What an amazing school! My children are thriving and the teachers and principal are top notch. Lots of extra help when needed. Great communication with teachers. Parents really care about this school. My kids are advanced readers now thanks to the new reading program! We wouldn't go anywhere else! Very happy with this community.
I have an learning disabled child (with an IEP) and we moved mid way through last year (from a real A rated school). It was a mess! This is one of the worst schools my kids have ever been in! My son did not get the help he was needing per his IEP. Many talks with the teacher and principle did nothing. I ended up pulling him and his younger brother out of this school to home school because those 5 months they were there were so horrible, they asked me not to send them back.
The change of curriculum has been a bit difficult and we all are a bit hesitant about change but hopefully, as the semester goes by, things should improve. I communicate with several teachers and it's the first I hear about their shivering issues. Child is content, teachers are working hard to assimilate and parents need to continue working in the classrooms.
This school is a total mess right now. Dr. Kinnerly does not welcome parental involvement at all despite the fact that kids score higher grades when parents are involved. The teachers are all shivering in their shoes waiting to get fired if they speak up against her. The kids aren't happy either, too many changes at once, everything has been flipped upside down on them. If you have a choice, take it and don't enroll your child at this school right now, the administration really sinks.
Great school! Teacher, staff, parents and kids are all top notch. Very happy with the environment and advanced learning experience. New principal is working hard. Great reading program plus all specials, Art, Music and PE are being taught.
