The school was a little overcrowded but thanks to the new just opened SunBlaze elementary close by just absorbed a big parcel of students leaving Northlake Park as always just the best in Orlando. And the good thing is as LakeNona grows and since this is a master plan they have already 3 "A" rated elementary schools moss park elementary SunBlaze elementary and North Lake Park and they are already planning the newest addition to the community that probably will be called the LakeNona Elementary close to Laureate Park and maybe within the Eagle Creek neighborhood. We have our four kids enrolled here and we love the staff and the school structure just much better than any other in Orlando at all and proud of being part of the history writing since lakenona is already the smartest community in central florida already and we will make any effort to keep up the standards.

They try but the bottom line is this school feels overcrowded and cold. They offer no languages enrichment courses or extra curricular activities unless it's YMCA sports related. I also agree with below statements about the security and the gym open to all during school. There are no creative fundraisers. There is a lack of organization. Lack of parents participating in kids activities leaving only a few to carry all the weight whether it's school supplies or school projects. We will be moving out of this location for her 3rd grade. We believe this area is becoming overcrowded and overall degrading as it grows.
That is the Best School in Central Florida where you can see very famous people around because it serves the best gated Community in the area. The LakeNona Golf and Country Club the staff are just the best. We thank them every day for the wonderful care with our kids.
Thank Ms Wendy our principal who makes all the personal effort to keep our School the best and a 5 star.
I love this school because your children is unique all the employes are very professional I'm glad to have my son in this school.
I am considering a move the neighborhood and Northlake Park is the assigned school. I called reception and asked if I could see the school and was transferred to an Assistant Principal's voicemail and did not get the courtesy of any reply at all.
My kids attended NLP from K-5th and I am very happy with the education they received. My oldest is finishing middle school and she came out well prepared for all the demands of her advanced and honors courses in another school. The teachers they both have had were all excellent. They all went above and beyond for all their students. However I am concerned that although parents are welcomed there is some kind of preferential treatment for a group of parents. Seems when there is an issue with their kids the administration bends over backwards to make those parents happy regardless of the consequences. But when is another group of parents who are not happy the same treatment is not granted. I also have an issue with discipline. If there is a child that has a major behavioral issue why is that child not removed from the room immediately? Seems to me that the whole class suffers because of the ONE child. The teacher must be overwhelmed when there is not a lot of outside support with these situations. I understand these kids have special needs and benefit from a regular classroom but the effect on the majority of the kids should not be overlooked.
This may be a good school but when the children fail the FCAT in reading and passes with excellent grades in all other subjects there's is a problem. And if you ask the teacher why? and tell you "I don't know" its a big disappointment.
I am very happy with this school. Teachers are excellent on meeting the curriculum. My daughter did very good during the whole year and passed the FCAT. For me this means they did their job. The staff is very friendly. I love having lunch with my daughter whenever I'm off work. Few things I don't like it's what they offer for lunch. Their food does not taste good. The other thing it's that my daughter told me they had recess once a week. She finished 3rd grade.
My son has been going to Northlake for three years and I love it! I know that my son goes to a safe well tought school the principal and teachers are amazing. The parents involvement is AMAZING.
Great school and teachers but extremely high frequency of fundraising efforts in this bad economy. Seems like every few weeks.
I love this school. My kids go to Moss Park Elementary now which I hate. NLP is so much better truly friendly administration! The car line and the way they actually teach the curriculum and pay attention to the students is amazing! Hopefully get to have my kids back there next year!! If you have a choice over the two schools do yourself a favor and pick Northlake Park!!
I totally agree with both posts below. The lack of after school program is really the only bad thing I can say about the school. My daughter has been here for 2 years and absolutely loves the school but the YMCA before & after school program are SO expensive! She attended the program for about 2 months because I was on bed rest and we had to withdraw her from the program b/c it was just more than we could afford.
I wish they offered an after school program other than the YMCA which is very expensive esspecially when I have not intentions on using the YMCA for anything other than the after school program.
This is a wonderful school. My son has received a grade 'a' education. But I do not like the fact that the school does not offer any afterschool activities other than the YMCA. which is very expensive.
I would like to commment on post dated May 11 2007. Simply not true. You can sign up to volunteer in your child's classroom. I can also join them for lunch. Naturally for our children's safety we are required to sign in at the office anytime we visit. Naturally to keep structure and the comfort daily routine provides teachers manage their own classroom volunteer schedules. There is also a very active and efficient PTA at NLP.
Excellent school wonderful teachers and great progrmas for all the children.
I have two children (2nd & K) who attend NLP. We moved to the Lake Nona area specifically to attend this school and have not been disapointed in the least! The teachers are wonderful the facilities are top notch and the administration honestly seems to care about both the kids and the parents! The integrated YMCA is wonderful! My kids go to after school (which is more like a camp atmosphere) and participate in virtual year round activities (flag football baseball basketball soccer for my son and basketball cheerleading soccer for my daughter. This school is top notch!!
We moved to NLP last year Mid -year from a sm private school--my children were behind. Our teachers helped us get caught up and we are above grade level now. Teachers students and parents are Great! I volunteer every week- We are Thankful we found a Great School!
I like my child class room teacher. I think she is great. On the other hand I do not appreciate the school system trying to keep parents from going to their child's classroom at all costs because it could be viewed as 'disruptive' I am glad we were only here a couple of months and there is only a couple of days left of school...is this what we have to look forward to in Orange County Florida?
