    "First of all, the enrollment is over 900 so the number listed here is incorrect. Stratford Landing is a VERY large school, that being said, it is a GREAT place. Teachers are happy and communicative, the administrators who are new to the building are upbeat and friendly to the kids and parents -- they are visible daily which makes quick questions possible. There were lots of changes made this year which did not sit well with some parents at the beginning of the year (assigned tables at lunch), this seems to be going well, and after having lunch with my children 2x this year, it is WAY better than last year. Volunteers are amazing. PTA has a great Facebook site. The school website has a new webmaster and it seems to be updated regularly. Overall, we have only been here two years but we are very pleased with what our children are experiencing."

    "The new leadership at SLES leaves much to be desired. Still hoping the new style evolves to a partnership with parents. Vague leadership remarks leave one feeling like this school was in the dredges before - it was not. And we can stop pretending SLES is suddenly a Title 1 school."

    "I struggled with this rating. My son is in the AAP and came from a Montessori program. He tested very high on the IQ exam and initially we were thrilled, but this year has not been very good. He started there in 3rd grade. His third grade teacher was great, she really managed the kids, there were no behavioral problems reported by our son. Montessori teaches the kids to be responsible for themselves and their own behavior, it's a student directed progam. Fourth grade has been a different story, the teacher has been ill-equipped to manage the behavioral issues of the kids in her class. My son has been bullied the entire year, by one boy and the two boys that follow him. My son has handled it and has also spoken to the teacher, but she seems to have missed the boat. We have asked that my son not be placed in the same class with this boy for 5th grade. Academically, the AAP is really not all it's cracked up to be. At my son's Montessori as a 2nd grader he was working on 6th grade math concepts and doing well with them. At SLES AAP he is doing 5th grade math using concepts he learned last summer at math camp. It's really disappointing. Classes should be smaller, that is a big problem"

    "We are a military family and moved here just before 1st grade. Right away we were pleased with the school and the ease of registration. We are now at the end of the 2nd grade year and still extremely impressed. Both teachers have been amazing. The new principle seems to be making huge changes within the school, for the better! The PTA is very active. I couldn't be happier and look forward to my second child starting kindergarten here in the fall."

    "We moved to this area for the stellar reviews of this school. After a year of behavioral issues, disruption and bullying that our children endured on a daily basis, we've pulled them out and have gone private. We took these issues to the Admin Office and they did nothing. Teachers hands are tied and they have no back-up which may be the reason why so many left.. Rooms are overcrowded (29 students in both our children's class with 4-6 being special needs in one room) and only ONE TEACHER! Truly a nightmare for our family."
