It's my sons first year there and has generally had a positive time. However, when he showed up for the early morning Y care program (as he's has for 3 1/2 months currently) because he wasn't "signed in" they removed him from the gym into a hallway. If it wasn't for his generous teacher taking him with her the office staff were going to place him outside by himself, unsupervised and in the cold. When I called the principle she immediately wanted to blame the YMCA and then defended her policy of leaving a child outside. OUTRAGEOUS! So happy to know that my money goes toward feeding her and her family and keeps her warm I'm here school while she would have no problem putting a kid outside by themselves in the cold.

My daughter has attended Park Lodge since Preschool. She is now a 4th almost 5th grader. The teachers are great and my daughter has excelled in every class that she takes there. The teachers are friendly and attentive to students needs. I would pick this school over any other elementary school in Washington State and have because Park Lodge is worth the time and effort that not only the students put in but the parents and teachers as well. Thumbs up for Park Lodge!

Park lodge is the best elementary i have ever seen. My children were very behind by a year to 2 years behind but this school has brought them to the right grade level or far beyond that level in the last year -2 years. my son is now in 2nd grade but his reading and his math are at a 4th grade level now and they believe his reading will hit 6th grade level by the end of the year!!!

My son is in Ms. Browns special needs pre-k class. He has an unknown delay that sets him back about a year and I am so impressed with his teacher! I was skeptical that he'd be challenged in a multi-age class where everyone's needs are different but academically, he is doing so well. I'd say he's beyond prepared for kindergarten after 8 months in her class. My only complaint is that they need a bathroom inside the classroom for special needs instead of sharing a bathroom with the upper grades. She expresses my same concern and is very genuine with caring for the children.

This school had a creative feel, and kids seemed to do lots of interesting projects, but that seems to have changed. People are working hard, but there is less student work on the walls, and I don't see kids working together as much as when we first started.

My son has been attending Park Lodge for 2 years now. We've had nothing but issues in communication with the school. He came home one day with a band aid on his knee the wound wasn't even cleaned and we ended up going to the doctor and getting silver cream because it was so deep. When I asked why they didn't tell me all they could say was is that it looked ok to them. The front office people are usually nice. The principal is always worried about his appearance and is all about ratings. His teacher has lost numerous things, pictures from picture day, money for field trips and report cards. I think there's too many children in one classroom setting. The teachers are stressed out and it shows. I've heard people say its a new school so they figured it would be good, only to realize it wasn't.

My son attended this school from K-1st grade. Always received great report cards with little to no issues. However, we transferred im to another school in a different district due to work/childcare. He was almost immediately dentified as being behind in reading and math. He was assigned to a special reading group and they selected himto attend a summer school program to catch up. How is this possible after 2 years of excellent report cards from Park Lodge?

Both my children attended Park Lodge all 6 years (K-5). The teachers are great and they learned a lot! Really prepared them for the years ahead.

I really like the school and most of the teachers are great. My son has done very well with his studies. But sometimes the teachers are not very forgiving when the kids make bad choices.

My daughter has been attending Park Lodge for 5 years now. During those years I have found that some years were better for her than others. Depending on the teacher, it can make a difference. As far as learning, resources, school perks, communication and a well thought out and clean public school, Park Lodge Elementary is one of the best. There is a lot of parent involvement within the school and my daughters teacher has made many efforts to talk to me about her class progress. Thumbs up for Park Lodge!

I did not like anything about this School when my daugther was in it. She was on there for 2 months and I pulled her out. She would come home crying because the teacher would say they had the worse class ever. They couldn't go to gym class because her class was so bad. I went and volunteered and there was no structure in the classroom, it was all choatic. During a math test, kids were being so loud and were able to walk around and talk to one another. I could not believe it. The teacher was so sarcastic to the children. That is all I needed to see and I pulled her out the next day! My opionion of the school is that it is just terrible. I would suggest parents volunteer to see how the school is really run.

I think that the school is ok. some children just need more TLC. mine is big sweet and gets his feelings hurt a lot by the other kids. he won't tell on them because he wants the others to like him. but the minute he says or does something they tell on the chubby kid and he gets punished. he has had great teachers and has learned so much in the two yrs he has gone there. thats the good part.

Friendly office staff but teachers less so. I witnessed one teacher keeping her lights off in the classroom for extended periods of time to *keep the children quiet* and the principle came on the loud speaker at the end of the day and praised children for walking down the hallways quietly. Quiet is a big priority here...not sure of much else.

This school has been wonderful for my son he has been able to develop his skills and learn lots of new and exciting things. The multiage progam is also an excellent program it gives children a greater oppurtunity to develop more advanced skills from there upper classmates.
