    "I would give this school zero stars but the option doesn't exist. My child is zoned to attend a school that penalizes you for not being hispanic. How is this fair? How is it that a born US Citizen gets treated like a second class citizen simply because his parents didn't migrate to the United States? This is my sons 2nd year at this school and I must say that this school year has taken discrimination to a whole other level. The sign on the building should read "if your not not Hispanic, we don't want you here!!!" From the non English speaking staff to the spineless teachers forced to teach our children. When I asked the teacher why nothing had been done about this she explained that the the principal believes that non Hispanic kids are simply experiencing what immigrants who migrate over experience when they enroll in public school. Is this her sick way of punishing innocent non Hispanic children for what her ancestors may have experienced? Is that not why ESOL exists? What provisions do they have in place for non-Spanish speaking students who are enrolled in their school?"

    "I am an alert parent, watching and involved parent, unlike the August 30th parent, who is a SLE employee. SLE administration wake up! Don't let the boosted up reviews of clueless reviewers and your hired staff fool you. Parents talk. Parents keep up with each other on current progresses of their child/children AND the poor quality of teachers and staff - from the underqualified principal down. Parents see MUCH more than you think and some of your staff talk honestly, so beware. Look at the reviews. If you can't see clearly that the August 30 response was obviously written by school staff in such an "official" method with words, specifics, & details of processes and not just a parent you also will believe this school should be rated higher than 1-star. If you're reading this site on SLE, you're concerned Oh ... how much did that electric sign cost by parental and school fund raisers cost? $35,000 was a quoted price in one of the principal's poorly run parent/staff orientations. And an electric sign is more important than a child's progress. How sad. How out of priority this purchase was. Very sad because with better administration & teachers, the school could be so much more."

    "90% of high ratings for the school are from staff. horrible organization skills in the beginning of year as to enrolling your child to school! if you work you would have to take atleast two days off. teachers act to show interest in students but fail to communicate with parents unless you child is "misbehaving" in the lunchroom or classroom so if you have a shy child you would expect grades to be good since you don't hear from the teacher all year but see otherwise from test scores. I went to take my child out of class early for a dental appointment and as I waited I asked a security guard if there was a restroom near she replied que? as if she didn't understand what language I spoke.(don't understand how someone who doesn't understand English would land a job at a school)after school pick up is horrible so unorganized and staff feel like this would be the time to chat with other staff members which make the pick up process even worst! I can honestly say that my child has gotten in my car with out staff even noticing which worries me! this is the last year my son will attend this school just take a look at the reading scores (it explains alot) ."

    "My child goes to SLE since kindergarten. My daughter just graduated from 5th grade and is in middle school. SLE staff and students are great. Academic achievement is a priority for the teachers and my children loved the school. I never had an issue getting a teacher-parent conference. FYI, no public school in the county offers FREE TUTORING. The schools do not have the resources to provide it. It is up to the parents to obtain it. If you feel your child has a need, make sure the teacher knows and see if the child qualifies for a program within the school (there is a process to obtain one, child has to demonstrate a SEVERE learning problem). Minor learning issues usually are corrected with tutoring but YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR IT."

    "Our 1st grader and 2nd grader (MS. WILLIAMS LEWIS' CLASS) have had difficulty with reading. Several parent/teach meetings requesting tutoring for reading have resulted in the same response - it is not available, except through private/outside sources. The Language Arts grade is a COMBINATION of the English and Spanish language class grades. We just found out (progress report)our child was pulled from the normal Spanish class to be TUTORED IN SPANISH PHONICS! They can't help with learning English, but have the resources and funds to focus on Spanish! This is discrimination. English is what is used in math, social studies, and all other classes. They are not teaching how to read English, but will a foreign language! THE SOLUTION IS PAY $$$$ PRIVATE TUTORINGS AT THE SAME SCHOOL. Incredible!"
