    My daughter is 8 years old and in 3rd grade. She attends the SLE Elementary School and she loves it! In 2nd grade her teacher assigned a research paper presentation and poster! She presented in front of her class and parents that attended. Her homework on average is almost 2 hours! I think the teachers are wonderful and have always updated and communicated with us in regards to her development. In our experience the SLE Elementary School teachers are excellent and work hard ! They encourage talking things out owning your behavior and you being responsible and nurture feelings by being kind.
