    "Winter Gardens was a big mistake. I hate to leave mid year, but I'm moving next fall. I haven't seen the principal on campus for over a week!!! Yes, she's out sick,but there should be a replacement. It's parent/teacher conference week and AM I DISAPPOINTED!!!!!! The teachers are crying for help. Who is guiding them? Who's teaching and mentoring the teachers? Should they not have specific teaching strategies for non native Spanish speakers? Why are they lost? Why can't they answer my questions? There is so much uncertainly on this campus, no lead, no administration and no one cares. Unfortunately, I am trying to look elsewhere for other immersion programs. I am confused on what to do!!! I am not happy. Am I the only one ?"

    "Worst teacher selection ever! The principal from Riverview took all experienced teachers and put new teachers at Wintergardens. What?! That's a great leader! This campus is crazy with inexperienced teachers and an administrator that talks but doesn't walk. She has so many tricks up her sleeve. To sum it up without boring you!!!! GO TO LAKEVIEW ELEMENTARY. I'm taking my son there. Even is you decide on an all English program, their Spanish enrichment is awesome and they are very organized and EXPERIENCED!!!!"

    "Wintergardens is not good. I notice the difference from the school I switched from. Do I regret it? Not yet, but I'm so close! In becoming close friends with a teacher I have learned that 6 of 8 teachers are new! They have no support from administration which is never there and their TOSA who is suppose to mentor has never taught immersion nor Kinder, 1st, 2nd, or 3rd. and she's never around. Who is training the teachers? I don't speak unless I have the facts. So, I walked around to every classroom. Everyone is cohesive, some teachers sing all day (from random visits in one day), some have nap time, one teacher was on the computer every time I walked in, no administration for two days. Ask a teacher and they will sugar coat their answers because they are new and will not speak up and loose their job. Ask the administrator and she will paint you a pretty picture. Judge for yourself on a surprise visit and be the witness. Now to see my other child at Riverview. I fell into the bandwagon following the popularity name of the program, but i'm afraid it's washed down."

    "I too agree that Winter Gardens was wonderful and the teachers were great. We had such a small-town feel which we loved but since LUSD opted to expand the Language Emmersion programs. We were told we will now go to Lemoncrest. We were never asked what we would like to do yet our tax dollars are going for programs we never signed up for. Such a shame we will leave this district because its only going to get worse. So sad the English (primary language) speaking children will soon be on the very bottom rung...just saying."

    "This school is as close as you can get to a private school. The teachers and staff are wonderful! Unfortunately Lakeside Union School District is taking it away to expand the Language Academy!!!!! Without any community input, LUSD does not care about our community or the best education for the children of Lakeside!! They only care about Money! Yes I am leaving the district that we pay taxes on because I refuse to put my child in over crowded schools!"
