    "There is nothing more special about this school than any other elementary school...now. I've had 3 kids attend Lake Arbor. I was extremely happy with the school, the parent involvement, academic level, and school activities. That is, until a change in the position of the principal. The school has declined. The teachers are pretty good for the most part. However, the only time now I receive communication from the school is about money. The field trips that are planned are not well thought out, planned, or economical; and too many have no educational basis. I feel not enough is done for students who are behind academically due to developmental delay. And on the flip side, not enough is done to stimulate those kids who are above grade level academically. Kids are falling through the cracks on both ends of the spectrum."

    "This school received a 5 by Great school rating. Why? Although I am really happy with the teachers that my child has had, there is this first grade teacher there who is extremely rude, judgemental, and condescending. With teachers like that, I can see why this school does not have much parent participation. I attended a meeting at the school where they spoke about the xommon core standards, but the work that they were showing that our children were doing, mine was doing In pre kindergarten. Not once did they mention what they do foer those children who are advanced academically. My child is in first grade. He has been counting pass 300 since he was in pre kindergarten, could tell time before kindergarten, and has been counting money for over a year now. Now we learn that telling time and counting money is not taught until they get in second grade. I take a lot of pride in his education. This school should help those children who are advanced also."

    "School has progressively gone downhill from the teachers right down to the office staff. I can substantiate the previous reviews since my child used to go there with the original principal to the current one. That's why the stars decreased from 5 to 2 or 3. Don't let the current 4 star average fool you. One child was injured due to poor staff management on the grounds and the other violently threatened by a student and suspended when he was the victim and has never had any problems being an honor roll student. Administration needs to stay on top of things, teachers need to listen instead of assume & the principal needs to be more aware of what's going on within the classrooms and engaging with parents. The Vice Principal did a way better job than the Principal. Avoid Lake Arbor if you can."

    "This school has changed over the course of 5 years teachers are quick to dicilipne students,students ghetto like to curse in class. This school used to be a great quality public school nut ever since this new principle came into the picture things dramttically changed for the worst. She is not doing anything to address the issue. i have been there for a year after going to kettering I am proud to say kettering was intellectually stimulating and less ghetto than it seems. Lake Arbors students curses nad i swear they have fights everyday ones that have turned bloody. If you want to send your child some where i would suggest Kettering. Because ovbiously Ms.Riggins is not doing her job. That is just my opinion. And every subsitute that has subsituted 5th and 6th dont want to come back that is an horrible this school is the most horrid school i have ever been to please if you want your child pure DO NOT SEND CHILDREN HERE."

    "Don't let the title of being in Mitchellville fool you. While there are a few excellent teachers, the majority are impatient and do not communicate well with students or their parents. I have had meetings with the former principal and current principal as I had one son graduate and another still attends. Many teachers and staff are either quick to punish or lack appropriate punishments for the children. I understand dealing with children is a hard job but the school needs to do better. I truly want my child to stay and grow at Lake Arbor but I am steadily looking into alternatives for the betterment of my child."
