What happened in January 2013? Any consequences for the 4th grade team? Where are the charter schools on Mercer Island?

Lakeridge is a really good neighborhood elementary school. Parent (and PTA) involvement pervades everything and the extracurriculars are beyond compare. Among just the third grade highlights this year were an overnight at the Seattle Aquarium, native american program, Bicycle Rodeo, student composed and performed operetta, student performed Shakespeare and an all school musical. My son enjoyed every minute of his hi-cap class. The staff is responsive when dealing with bullying and friendship issues as long as you treat them as humans (some of the type-A parents can come across as entitled). The new principal could do better interfacing with parents.

My daughter attended Lakeridge from 1st grade through 5th grade and we were very pleased with the education she received. The parents are very involved at this school, and it shows! Helpful involved parents make for a better learning environment. All the teachers we had were excellent, no complaints...

Both of my daughters go to this school and we love the quality of the education that they receive there. The staff is genuinely caring and the parents are very involved.

Lakeridge has hired a new principal since the last posted review. Under the new leadership the school is even better. My son just finished third grade which has an amazing teaching team. I must say they brought the curriculum to life with lots of visiting artists. The school music program is great too. The only improvement that the school could make would be to higher an art teacher. Currently there are no art teachers in the elementary schools on Mercer Island.
