Everything about Walden Lake from its administrative, teaching, custodial and lunchroom staff is top notch! The teachers are exceptional and have shown that they care about children's academic success AND emotional well-being. Walden Lake goes above and beyond to offer many opportunities for all students to achieve success. I feel so fortunate that my children are receiving such an extraordinary educational experience.
Walden Lake is THE BEST elementary school in Plant City by far. The teachers are very caring and truly want your children to succeed. I will be very sad when our elementary days are over!
I have a son in the 7th grade that had previously attended WLE. At the national junior honor society I was completely amazed by the large percentage of WLE students being inducted. Excellent school, great teachers, and a wondereful platform to build the rest of their education upon. When kids leave WLE, the are very prepared for junior high academically.
Walden Lake Elementary is an excellent school with awesome teachers!! My 2nd and 4th grade boys have done great and I thank all the staff for the wonderful job they do.
We recently moved to the area and we're thrilled with this school. The only thing I don't like is we're 'poor' and there's always something they want money for, but I give as much as I can because the payout for the students is excellent. The class size and attention they give - schoolwide - to each student is exceptional. We love the teacher and couldn't ask for more in a school.
This is a wonderful school. The teachers and staff are very friendly.
I had 2 boys in the school from 1st to 5th. The support was great and the teachers make every effort to engage the kids. It was a winning opportunity for my boys and has set them up to be successful in middle school next year. The office staff was unbelievable, they were always polite and helpful. The library is great with a large and varied selection of books.
My daughters went to this school and faired well. Plant City is a quirky town, more like an oversized high school than a city, and Walden Lake is the 'in school' for the 'in group'. A lot of good people put a lot of special attention into it. As much as I'd like to complain, it is hard to do so. One of the teachers my daughter had was a rightwing nut job who preached Jesus meetings and George Bush all day long, and being a progressive 'bright' myself, you'd expect me to be livid, but I wasn't. She was sincere in her opinions and gave my children an excellent education and love of reading. I am thankful to her. Both gifted teachers when we were there turned out to be excellent and really, with only one exception, all the teachers were very good. WLEK is a darn good school.
Parent involvement is outstanding. The teachers are the absolute best, as is the staff and students. Community involvement is supportive and personal. There is no better elementary school in the area!! Love the 'A' rating and high test scores. The AGP program is complete and the teachers are caring as well as being superior. The PTA and Dad's Club are involved in every aspect of the educational experience, making the children feel special and loved. We are very lucky to have such a wonderful and complete academic enviroment for our children!!
My daughter has been going to this school for almost 2 years now and her sister has been going for 4 years.This is a great school with alot of parent/teacher involvment. There is alot of volunteering that any parent is allowed to do. The curriculum for first grade is awesome. They split the children into groups depending on their current knowledge. They dont just put them all into one category.
I have had 4 children in this school over the past three years. I have been very pleased each year. Wonderful teachers, staff, administration and office staff. Couldn't ask for a better school!
I love this school. The school has everything my son need's to excel.Everyone at the school is very friendly. The teachers really care and it shows in the FCAT scores.
We absolutely love this school and all the staff that we came in contact with last year.......What a breathe of fresh air!!!
