    My grandsons attend the Discovery Program at Shadow Lake and they rate this school a "10"! The teachers are excellent and the principal is very effective and treats everyone fairly.

    Having had the priviledge to interact with all aspects of SLES for many years with educators administors volunteers and students;I would like to add my high regards to the many positive voices of praise!

    I think this school has great teachers that really care about each and every child. The PTA is phenomenal and brings in lots of money for the kids needs. The only area that could use help is the playground. It has no grass for our kids to play on.
