My kid used to study here and later moved to another school district. That's when I realized how much they don't do at Lake Elmo. The students who are ahead of others would need to wait around for the other kids to catch up...they are not given any challenging work. There is no additional language program. The gym is only two days a week. In the neighboring school district there is 4 days of gym and intense exercises at that. The other district has Spanish or Chinese program which really helps kids as they go to high school and require language for graduation. The choir program in the other school district is amazing and the concerts are more like college concerts. The curriculum is advanced according to need and smart kids are not expected to sit through material they know or learnt years ago. Even in Kindergarten they do this advancement in math and reading....I see that it was lacking in Lake Elmo. Hope they will improve.

This school is an amazing place for children to learn together as a family of multi-cultural children. They get to learn about cultural diversity and acceptance of everyone!

Two of our four children attended Lake Elmo. Having come from Rutherford, we did have some speed bumps (including Ms. D, a 6th grade teacher who thankfully is no longer there) but with the exception of one teacher, we were very pleased with our childrens' experiences at this school.

For kids who are advanced in studies this school has no acceleration opportunities.They give a lot of importance to sports and music,art activities and children who excel in academics get no support. Gifted cluster program offers nothing for the advanced children.

This is a wonderful school! We miss the old principal as she was absolutely wonderful, however the new principal leaves nothing to be desired! Wonderful teachers, staff and all! The school is a quaint, older school that offers a well rounded education for kids of all elementary ages. It is also a consolidated school so the children that attend get the opportunity to interact with children with special needs and other abilities as well. A wonderful lesson to learn at a young age!
