    "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."

    "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."
