Love Murray LaSaine. Lots of history here, and lots of improvement, year by year! The school is slowly transitioning to Montessori and the principal for 2016 is AWESOME. Newly renovated building, new playground, technology galore. Test scores are not the only metric! Students are happy, healthy, and loved at MLES.

We love Murray Lasaine Elementary. We have two children there, both in the Montessori program, and have had only wonderful experiences for the past two years. The teachers and staff are kind and devoted; the children are delightful, of course; and the parents are generous and involved. We love the diversity compared to other James Island schools, and we love the community feel of the school. It feels like family. The Montessori Program is fully stocked with appropriate materials, and the teachers are all entirely committed to the Montessori philosophy, so I feel confident that my children are experiencing the benefits of a true Montessori education. The school is experiencing natural growing pains as the enrollment has almost doubled, but that is all par for the course and will soon level out and in no way affects the children negatively. My children never even witness teasing, bullying, ostracizing, or any thing of the sort. They feel safe and loved by the entire community. The SAIL program for Talented and Gifted is outstanding. We're looking forward to a newly renovated building in Fall 2015!!

This is a community school! The staff and students work together to ensure learning. Teachers use Howard Gardner's multiple intelligences to teach all of the learning styles. Test scores are rising but it is a slow process due to the world around us. Enrollment is also on the rise! The students are respectful and have strong personalities! I love working at this school and I would recommend it to anyone.
