The Principal, teachers and staff truly care about having the students learn while enjoying school. It makes a huge difference to know that my child is in good hands. I love the fun activities the school had this year and cannot wait to see what else is to come.
This year my grandson's class had a transgender teen who has written a children book about the subject come has a guest speaker. Parents had the choice to allow or not their child to attend. Great speaker, beautiful done.
My grandson has attended Mirror Lakes since K-3. Nicely kept secret of our neighborhood. New principal this past year had implemented various new activities, and focused much of her time on the children's safety. Under the direction of the Art teacher, the school performed a full musical (Aladin) and will working on Lion King next year.
The new principal has turned this school around. We have parental involvement. Everyone is very happy there and my child loves to go to school. Thank you, Mrs. Veliz for turning this school around and making it a great place for learning!!!
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.
