My daughter was at Sunset Lakes Lakes Elementary for 5 years. I had her reassigned from a private school. What a phenomenal experience! This is an A+ school rated on the top 100 schools in Florida. I recommend this school to anyone that move to the area. The teachers are extremely dedicated to the academics the school has state of the art technology and there are no words to describe the administration. The office staff also is very accommodating and customer service oriented. Continue doing what you are doing Mr. Charpentier and Ms. Correa beacause you are the BEST OF THE WEST!!!

Sunset Lakes Elementary is by far one of the best schools in the state. I have never seen teachers so dedicated and enthusiastic about teaching and learning. They are the best in their district by far!!!! Please don't listen to negative responses. I don't understand why people would lash out at such an amazing school filled with such a caring and hard-working staff that only want the best for their students. Sunset Lakes is by far the Best in the West!!!
My son attended this school last year 2013-2014. Within the first 2 weeks of school he came home with bruises and fingernail marks around his neck. I contacted the school immediately but they never did anything. Subsequently he was kicked by a boy which required medical attention. Again nothing was don except the boy was not allowed to go on a trip and the Primcipal did not find enough evidence to "substantiate bullying". Thank goodness most of the schools are under capacity so I was able to reassign my son to a much better school in my opinion. He's now at Silver Shores Elementary where the Principal did his dissertation on bullying and upholds a zero tolerance policy.
I have only great things to say about sle I love the communication between the teacher and the parents it is very clean I find it very organized and great educational system. My daughter started this year to go to sle I had to change her from silver lake elementary( she is assigned to that school) and let me tell you I see a huge difference between one and the other I am extremely happy with sunset lakes elementary the classroom my daughter is at have 18 students and the teacher is great!!
The school is over crowded. Over 22 students in some classrooms and a lot of yelling and chaos as one reviewer mentioned. All they care about are test scores not the best learning experience for the students. There is a PTSA at the school that does not contribute anything to the teachers or from what I see the students. It is one unorganized fundraiser after another. I have even witnessed members of the PTSA fighting loudly amongst each other in the hallway which I find innappropriate. The school needs a lot of improvement.
SLE is spectacular! The teachers staff and adminiatrators are very educated and caring and have our children's best interest at heart. They have high expectations for all students and prepare them well for their future. All students who attend this school are very fortunate to be surrounded by the best role models!
My son just joined first grade in this school. Being a volunteer and being able to actually have a look inside the class while in session has been an eye opener for me. The teachers are extremely stressed in the classroom. Shouts and yells at all the kids some kids get yelled at more than the others. Kids can be made to stand outside the classroom and become a topic of discussion among all the teachers. Many a times my kid has come home with wet pants telling me he was not allowed to use the restroom in spite of asking her three times. Home works are given out as loose sheets of papers. If they fall out of the paper kids are yelled at. Administrative staff at the front desk are some of the worst people to deal with. Especially an old lady with short hair. Best part is note is teacher's change in behavior as soon as kids parents shows up to pick the kids up at the end of school. Almost as if they have a split personality!
Overcrowded!!! My daughter is in a first grade class this year with over 30 students! How is a child supposed to learn? There are 2 teachers but my daughter said they are always trying to get all of the kids under control and have little time to teach. We feel that she is gifted and are very concerned that there are way too many kids in her class and that she will fall behind because of it. Overall I would say that the school does not follow the 18 1 student teacher ratio and that is very concerning.
My two daughters have had the most wonderful experiences at SSL. The administration support staff teachers and parent organizations work collaboratively to provide the best education for our children. My girls have been so happy. While one is now starting middle school I am proud that my younger one will continue to benefit from their love and dedication to our community. It is an amazing school with a beautiful campus and loving staff. It feels like an elite private school. Thank you Sunset Lakes Elementary!
I just found out that my friend's child was bullied and attacked in this school and nothing was done about it. I pulled my two children out because my 4th grader was bullied the entire 2013-2014 school year and the principal and assistant principal didn't do anything. They would not answer my emails or phone calls. Sometimes I would even stand outside his office but he would not acknowledge this serious issue. I am fortunate my kids got into Somerset Academy and we will never have to deal with Sunset Lakes again!
Complete lack of transparency. That's all I need to say. Go for a reassignment at another local school or apply for charter schools such as Somerset Academy.
Omg I went to this school from 1st-5th grade and am bow in 6th in Glades Middle. Sunset Lakes is the best. The teachers are very nice and now how to let loose and be fun and the new principle well if you ever get stuck going to bush gardens with him on your bus remind him there are water rides there. Just don't let him drag you onto one. There are always parties as rewards. This school really gives kids the fun so they want to go but teach them the right things to succeed in things. Also to any parents who are worried about the rumors about Glades. Yah they're are some fights. Like. 2 a month. But its a very nice school. Same thing as sunset lakes but the teachers are a bit..less loose. Hope this helped seeing it from a childs point of view )
I have two kids in the school since I moved from NJ. I have a first grader who's been here for 2 yrs and a prek who has been there for 2 yrs also. In Sept 2013 my oldest will go to second grade and my youngest will start Kindergarten. What can I say I love it!!! Beautiful school inside clean large great teachers beautiful mac computer lab. The administration is wonderful very helpful. The bus program is great and my kids belong to another zone school (panther run) but I don't send them there its not as sophisticated or up to date (tech wise). The academics at Sunset Lakes is also one of a kind. Kuddos...I love this school....
This is my second year with this school. The teachers are great. My daughters 3rd grade teacher is great to work with good with communication and listens to parents concerns. My daughter is doing well in this school. The only issue I have is it is quite unclear how the admin decides to place the child in regular or advanced class each year. My daughter got an overall 93% in reading and math in 2nd grade. but was not placed in the advanced class based on the overall performance. upon request and meeting with the counselor the answers are not very satisfactory. The school has a Champ math program information related to this is not sent to the parents. It is not clear the selection criteria for this program.
I was pleased with Sunset Lakes my child entered in kindergarten and just graduated this year! I feel I was very fortunate to have a 3rd and 4th grade teacher that was passionate about her job and cared individually for the progress of her students. It is all about staying involved and speaking up I wish I had regarding his 1st and 2nd grade teacher but he is thriving now.
This will be the 3rd year my daughter attends this school and I couldn't be happier. She started in 1st grade and is now entering 3rd grade. Facility itself is very well-kept and safe. Admin is very helpful & friendly. They're constantly doing events to keep children and parents engaged. Principal & AP were amazing! I hope this year is even better!
I love this school and especially feel that the real difference is my child's teacher. She is superwoman!! I am proud to say that she may be the one who he looks back and remembers fondly for changing his world. It's hard in any school until your child gets a teacher that he or she relates to. Thanks!!
My daughter has been in Sunset Lakes since Kindergarten. She will be graduating this year and I just want to say how pleased I am with this school overall. The school has solid administrative leadership and staff. She has been blessed with excellent teachers that really prepare them for middle school. This school is strong academically and my daughter has made great friends along the way.
I am more encouraged now that the new wing is open and has allowed for better class sizes. I was disappointed with my son's teacher in first and second grade and should have followed my instinct. He has a great teacher now but he needs to catch up since he apparently didn't get exposure to some things last year.
My daughter is now on her 6th year at this school and has done very well academically. She also has been happy there.
