This school does not encourage parental involvement in the classrooms. Teachers do not have holiday parties, classroom volunteers, field trips, or author's teas (where parents are actually invited to come in and hear their kids read and not just the administration). They say they want parental involvement, but what they mean is don't come into our classrooms. My son was scared and never really supported at the school. They have Montessori in K but my son's teacher did not really moving the kids along with the lessons and she did not teach reading (K is a foundational grade for reading development). I was highly disappointed with the school.
My two children attend Mirrror Lake Elementary.It is a small school ,they know the children by name.The teachers care about the kids and my children are learning.They have some nice special programs .I am so glad my children go to Mirror Lake Elementatry.
Mirror Lake Elementary is a fantastic school! The teachers and staff do an amazing job to meet the needs of each individual child. My chilrdren thrived while they were in attendance and loved every minute of there time spent in the school!
I have a third grader and a pre-k student attending MLE this year. My eight year old has been at MLE since she was five years old and I have absolutely fallen in love with MLE as an educational institution. However, I have noticed this year to be different from any other year in my experiences at MLE. My daughter is now in the High Achievers program and she is no longer as independent as she has been.
This year our son had Mr. Obrien and he was a wonderful teacher. He did a great job trying to prepare our son for middle school and sent us daily progress reports and weekly grades so we knew exactly what was going on with our son. Overall most of the teachers we have had from K-5 have been pretty good.
When we moved to our new home I was concerned about the school since my daughter was 5 and would be starting school. Her experience has been wonderful. Her teacher Mrs. Johnson is wonderful with the children. She helps each of them to strive to be the best that they can be. The school provides a wonderful learning place for the children and my daughter is looking forward to moving on into first grade.
