Both of my children attended Panther Lake Elementary and both received a very good education that prepared them for middle school. My children were both recommended to take the gifted test, but didn't qualify. The teachers were great at differentiating instruction to meet the kids academically where they were and then push them to improve. I also volunteered in the classroom and witnessed the teachers differentiating instructions for these levels and saw the joy the teachers had in not only seeing the higher achieving students achieve but also the struggling learners improve. I saw the teachers setting goals for these struggling learners to get them to grade level. The school has a diverse population economically which presents challenges, but teachers adapt well. Both of my children went on to do honors classes in middle school as well as high school level math. They were well prepared.
