    "It was the best of times, it was the Worst of times. For those in the french immersion and some who excel in the Academy, it was great. However, for the average to below average students in the Academy, the school is fraught with classrooms where learning is much more difficult than it should be. My child was there from K-5th grade; The older he got, the more senile the principal seemed. Her decision making was horrible. She is arrogant, stubborn, and condescending. My child was placed in a "mixed class" of fourth and fifth graders last year. When we found this out just before school started, I asked the principal if she was planning to make the mixed class a little smaller, more manageable for the teacher. No was all she said. In the Spring, when I realized my child wasn't progressing, we hired a consultant to go in and observe the class. From the feedback, we realized the teachers were working really hard, but the classroom "mix" made for an environment that was not very conducive to learning. Teachers are the saving grace there, as is the assistant principal. They are caring and dedicated."

    "Well based on the letter regarding your policy of inclusion, appreciation, and respect of students with special needs and / or autism, it appears you should get a rating of ZERO. LETS HOPE ITS NOT POSSIBLY TRUE. You wouldn't make the cut in our school district in Canada."

    "MD school systems are ridiculous, I am a New Yorker, I moved into this area due to my military service obligation. My experience with this school was very unpleasant, my 5 yr old was placed on a bus, when he was supposed to go to the "in-school" aftercare program. The bus driver dropped off my child without a parent present. Luckily, while I was at work, a friend of mine saw my child wandering my apartment complex and picked him up. The teacher's response was:"a 5yr old is old enough to follow instruction" ... No apologies, but that if my child was placed on a line to attend aftercare he shouldn't have strayed; their dismissal is total kaos at that school. We moved to another district because this is only 1 of the many many issues I had with the school."

    "I think Sligo Creek Elementary school is great. Our child is in the French immersion and has learned so much. Last summer we enrolled our kid in an expensive French camp and were actually less impressed with their offerings than the ones at SCES. We are so pleased with the teachers, who are engaged and attentive... and even the aftercare has been wonderful."

    "We have been very happy at this school. Our child is in the academy program and instruction is strong. Our child excels in math and writing and he receives appropriate enrichment in math and the teacher works with him to home his writing assignments. We love the specials teachers, especially music and PE. We are very excited for the outdoor classroom and the unique And spontaneous learning opportunities it will provide. I have not noticed staff turnover or spoken to anyone who was demoralized."
