Martha Lake Elementary School 5

This is an amazing school with amazing teachers. The diversity is so rich, and there are plenty of extra curricular activities. They do not teach cursive any longer, as it is not needed in common core, but some teachers still choose to teach it. There is choir during recess, as well as service club and conflict managing. You can also choose to work in the library or do safety patrol to protect your fellow classmates. This is a wonderful school.

Some teachers at MLE are very good but there are at least two that just phone it in at best. Lots of broken promises. It must be nice to have tenure and collect a paycheck for nothing!

Mrs. Smith, is a wonderful teacher! She cares about all of her students being successful and makes the classroom a place of camaraderie and respect. My son loves having her for his teacher! And he has learned so much this year.

All the teachers are different. And every one makes school very fun. I've never not wanted to go to school for as long as I've attended Martha Lake Elementary. The other students also have a lot of personality. There was never one boring day. I don't think the classes are too big. My last class had 31 students and we all became friends. We could also learn while having fun. Honestly, this is the best school I have ever attended.

I agree with the report on class size, my third grader has 27 kids in class, and I think that's way too big. We do love our teachers at this school, but the parking lot and having no busing makes drop off and pick up a huge hassle for parents and kids.

I just got the report on class size, and disagree about there being 18 students per class. There are 25 students in my sons class, and I think that's way to big. Especially for kids just learning to read.

This school is overall a good school for my son. He likes his teacher, and the staff, and is learning well. The only things I think could be better are the class size is way too big. He has 25 kids in his class. And the parking lot is a nightmare for dropping off and picking up kids. It's way too small for the size of this school.

My son is excelling in all of his subjects. He loves his teachers and knows everyone at the school and they all know and love him. Im not quite sure what music and sports programs the school provides. My son is only in first grade. There is an excellent PTA and fundraisers often. This is a school that is loved.

We've had a child in Martha Lake elementary for the past seven years. The staff, from principal to maintenance, are highly dedicated and hard working. There are many extracurricular activities available including several sports, music and social events. The school itself is very clean, well-maintained and quite attractive. The library offers computers with internet access. Parent involvement includes many active, enthusiastic and devoted volunteers. We love Martha Lake Elementary and will mourn when we no longer have a child attending there. We've intentionally stayed in the same apartment so we could stay at Martha Lake Elementary even though we're not completely content with our apartment complex. It's a great school and any child would be lucky to be a student there.
