    "My son is about to graduate from Lake Arbor and I can't WAIT because it is terrible. This schools needs a serious overhaul. The quality of the teachers is sub par. Years ago everyone wanted their child to attend Lake Arbor because it was academically challenging and the administration was MUCH better. Now, Lake Arbor is not competitive and is simply a feeder for the equally terrible middle school across the street, Ernest Just."

    "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."

    "I have loved my time at LAES. The neighborhood has changed quite a bit; it doesn't have the same types of families that were there when the school first opened. The administrations have also changed several times. In spite of all that, the schools assessments continue to reflect great teaching going on in the building. Some of the complaints on this page seems like bitter parents who are upset they couldn't get their way about one thing or another. My family has continued to be treated with kindness and respect. Unfortunately there are more parents who really like the school but their comments are not being reflected here. It's a great school and I am glad my family is a part of it."

    "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."
