    "I am not sure where parents are obtaining some of the data. The most recent post states that there is a high turnover. As an involved parent volunteer with children in the school for 12 years, there has been no turnover in staff for the past 4 years. The principal is responsive and caring. She is outside almost daily to greet students, even in the snow. We may not like her response and the answer may be no, but her mission is clear for the school and our children are the beneficiary of academic gains and a school that is child centered. Teachers across the board are dedicated and hard working. It is a diverse school with three programs, who are blessed with outstanding staff. My children are doing extremely well in high school, and middle school as a result of the strong foundation provided at Sligo Creek. Any child would be fortunate to be here...and PS...my child is in the Academy program."

    "School leadership is not responsive to needs of students with learning issues. The staff is hindered by administration in what they can do. There is regular turnover of staff and many new teachers at the school. I would not recommend this school at all."

    "We have found Sligo Creek to be...OK. In one of the other comments a parent in French immersion stated that "Both programs appear to be given equal attention and resources." I disagree. As a parent of an academy child the difference in attention and resources between the two is painfully apparent. The French immersion children have more cultural opportunities, without corresponding "science" or "technology" opportunities for the "Academy" children. The school could do more to make it feel like the Academy is not just a place for the kids who weren't lucky enough to get into the French program."

    "We have a child at Sligo Creek Elementary School. We find the school to be average. Our child's class sizes have ranged from 26 at the low end up to 28. We find most of the teachers to be wonderful, but they have expressed their frustration about the limitations put on them by the Principal in how they can teach. Forget about going outside for a spontaneous teaching moment, if going outside is permitted at all. Recess is often held indoors when the slightest of weather conditions occur. The Principal is not responsive to parents and is condescending to both parents and children. The PTA is a nightmare, social-wise -- very clicky. We were warned about it before we sent our child there and all the tales turned out to be true! The great thing about this school is the French Immersion Program. Everything else is average, but mainly due to the leadership and not the teachers."

    "Sligo Creek is a wonderful school. My daughter has had outstanding teachers. Class sizes have been good -- 17 to 20. The facility is well maintained. The Principal and other school leaders are doing a top notch job. There's also a very caring ethos -- lots of nice kids, good parents, healthy diversity too."
