My son husband and I love this school and staff! It has been a blessing for our family. I have tried other schools in the Miami Dade area; but there is no comparison Blue Lakes has the best teachers and staff . They are not only very professional and know how to teach but they care about their students! Compared to children from other schools and his same grade level; my son is ahead academically. In addition you walk away with the feeling you belong and are part of a big family.
blue lakes has been the worst experience I've ever had. I will remember this school forever and not in a positive way. The principal is very uneducated unprofessional short tempered person I have ever met in a school she should be in a high school in liberty city.
his school has a bit of everything we want to keep our children away from. From bickering between parents/PTA to favoritism to those kids from the teachers/PTA inner circle to bullying and "teacher's choice" teachers who their classrooms are more than often being run by substitutes. I've been dealing with this school for almost 7 years and have seen the principal 6 times. She's never getting involved with her students. Never.
My grandson is very happy there and teachers are very professional. It is a safe school for all children and the curriculum is great
This schools is the best kept secret in Miami. The faculty and staff are really there for the benefit of the students. Their ESE department along with the gifted program is phenomenal. The gifted program provides students with the opportunity to become avid learners and the leaders of tomorrow. They study about art humanities history space and many other aspects of the world. They trully challenge the students.
Blue Lakes Elementary is the best kept hidden secret. The faculty staff and administration is the best there is. All of the teachers are very caring towards the students. Students in the ESE program as well as the gifted program are challenged. The gifted program provides different types of opportunities for students to learn about world-wide events as well as American History. Students are exposed to units of study in the arts humanities space and much more. They prepare the students to become future leaders.
I love Blue Lakes Elementary. My son loves going to school every morning. The new principal is wonderful and caring the teachers are very professional. The gifted program needs to challenge the students a bit more. The home learning assignments in the gifted program are not geared toward gifted students. They make them do sentences with vocabulary and write the word five times each.
My daughter attends 4th grade at Blue Lakes. It has been a very positive experience for her and she has made many friends. The teachers are very nurturing and loving but also highly qualified.
My daughter has been at this school since kindergarten. Now she's in 2nd grade. She's in the gifted program since 1st grade and I have to say that I'm not very impressed with the gifted program. They cancel the classes too often. For the past 3 weeks before spring break there have been no gifted classes. I would give this school a C at best.
This school is small and intimate in a city with schools that are too large and overcrowded. My son had great teachers but the principal (J. Carbio) was terrible. He spent school funds decorating his office like it was going to be featured in Architectural Digest. Teacher and staff morale seriously suffered during his tenure. I hear they have a new principal now and hopefully things will improve.
I would never trade this school for anything in the world. The help provided to my child from teachers and staff has been more than 200%. Thank you Blue Lakes for helping my child learn many new things as he grows.
Although this school is currently facing some challenges with parking I believe that the new principal is making strides as far as improving the school by motivating the staff as well as the students. Everyone seems more involved. We have a son in High School that graduated from BLE and now our daughter attends 2nd grade there. Incredible faculty! We love this school.
We are having a big problem in the school at the present time. There is only parking space for 25 cars... Come on we have more parents than that in the school There was enough time to do any work in the school during the summer. I cannot believe that the safety of our kids is on the floor by making us walk blocks and cross heavy traffic streets oh but the teachers have their own parking space. The drop off area are not covered for raining days. I believe that the new principal of the school should be more involved in the school and the safety of our kids. Teachers don't come before the students.
New Principal! Great school great teachers and family participation is encouraged. Gifted program in challenging but makes learning fun!
My child started kindergarten in Blue Lakes last year and she had an excellent teacher. She is now in first grade and is also among the gifted students. The quality of education at this schools is excellent. I highly recommend this school as a parent.
great school very clean and involved
I find this school to be bit behind other schools. My son came into this school in kinder very ahead and came out in second grade behind. We had to get him tutors just to be able to learn more because school just wasn't enough.
Great teachers horrible principal office staff lack of proper security a 'C' school at best!
This is a great school the Teachers and Parents are very united and it makes the difference.
