We are new to the state of Minnesota and this school has not provided a welcoming atmosphere for a new family. The teachers tease my children on their accent to the point of us bringing to the attention of the Dean and we were blown off until he heard with his own ears. The administration likes to talk about all the great things they do, however if a parent questions these 'great things' then the parent is no longer welcomed. The school leaves the parent out of the loop and expects the parent to abide but what 'they feel' should be for the students. They will not look at a student as an individual but only use quantitative data. However as a parent with a Masters in Education myself I possess the understanding that data is not complete and well rounded without the qualitative side as well.

The teachers at CLM School are wonderful. The office administration, deans, councilors, etc. need more training on being patient and dealing with children. I beleive the administration lacks compassion, and it seems like they don't understand childrens needs. I pulled my daughter out of this school for that reason.

We have had a child attending the Chisago lakes Middle School for 5 years now and we have nothing but good things to say about its staff and policies. Our daughter was very physically ill and missed almost all of 7th grade and attending 1/2 days for much of 6th and 8th grade. The administration, counselors, school nurse and teachers went out of their way to ensure that our daughter was taught all that she needed to know in order to stay caught up with her peers. They provided us with a homebound tutor and when she did return to school, they were very accommodating in helping her to adjust to being back in school. She is a healthy sophomore now and on the 'A' honor roll. This simply would not have been possible without the support given to us by the Middle School staff.

The principal and administration have made great efforts this year to communicate openly with parents, sending many notes and newsletters, inviting us in for parent advisory meetings, and seeking our volunteer help. The staff we've dealt with are very dedicated, professional and take the extra time to meet the needs of our child. There are multiple academic offerings available to meet the needs of students at all levels. There seems to be an active effort to continually evaluate their academic offerings to ensure it stays top rate.

My child has ADHD, ODD, Anxiety disorders. My child attended the Taylors Falls Elementary School. They were very helpful in working with me as a team and develope a IEP for my child. Now my child has been in the Middle School for 3 years and it has not been a positive experience at all. The services he receives are very inadequate. The school does not follow through with the IEP, from the special education teachers, regular teachers, assistant priniple, to the paraprofessionals. They blame parents for their failures. There is a very inadequate understanding of Emotional and Behavioral Disorders within this school. Not all the teachers were present at the IEP meeting, and halfway through the year, two teachers weren't even aware of my childs IEP. After speaking to one of these teachers about this, the teacher told my child 'thanks for making me look like a bad teacher'.

New principal in 2004, We will see what impact this will have. Ran into two teachers, who were uncooperative about helping our son who has ADD. They gave us the feeling it was our problem, and they did not follow through on agreed upon ways of handling the situation. Had a bad experience at lakeside elementary, teachers gave us the impression they were overworked, and werent going to go the extra mile for anyone. Moved our son t to Taylors falls elementary, much better school and staff was great!

It appears to me that because there is a lack of control over the students resulting in violence, drug use and sexual promiscuity, the administration has decided to shut out the parents and community rather than come clean and ask for their help. Now the 'good' parents and students are unable to effectively communicate with the teachers and administration. Honest students are looked at with distrust and concerned parents are considered to be mettling. This school is a fine example of big government with too much power.

This is highly student centered school with an excellent staff and a caring administration. The school has a strong and innovative curriculum and is sensitive to the needs of individual students.

This is an adult-centered school with a high degreee of nepotism where teachers and administrators are unresponsive and lackadaisical to parent concerns about policies and issues regarding their student. Parents seem discouraged from participating.

There is far too much fighting at this school,and the principal doesn't seem very effective. When you make a claim your child has been assaulted there is no follow up information. You are not informed of the consequences. Teachers do not follow through with child's assistance in classes, neither does the school counselor. There are worse schools, but this is not the best by far.

My son has an IEP and has received excellent one on one attention. He had an aide go with him to every class because he has a learning disability at the beginning of 6th grade but by the end of the year the aide was cut down to half a day and for the first time in his life he made the B honor roll in the third trimester.
