    "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."

    "My son has been at Sligo Creek since Kindergarten and has loved every minute of it- until this year.... Ms. Scott in K and Ms. Martin in 1st grade were phenomenal. He is gifted in Math and they recommended he attend the next grade level math program all without any parental encouragement (in a good way!) This year (2nd grade) he also had 4-5 different teachers by mid-year and I haven't been impressed with his now full time teacher. She was withholding recess as punishment and justifying it because there were behavioral problems (you wonder why- after 4 different teachers!!) I did talk to her and she changed her methods- which is great- but it wasn't without alot of headache on my end and a very upset child for some time. So overall- the school is a very good one, but if you aren't careful and involved, there are some disappointments. And unfortunately alot of teacher turnover."

    "We feel so lucky that our child has the opportunity to attend this wonderful school and the French immersion program. Every teacher has been outstanding. Yes, the gym teacher is simply the best and the art and music teachers are equally great. I can't speak to the academy program, but the french immersion program is wonderful."
