    Great school. Warm friendly & a staff that goes above & beyond for your child. I've had 3 children here & have been very happy.

    The parents are active and involved the administration is supportive and encouraging of biking and walking to school (unfortunately quite rare around here) the school is becoming increasingly "green " and tends to be a leader among other schools in the district.

    I have 2 kids in the school (K and 3rd Grades) and have been extremely happy thus far. I especially like the more urban location near downtown Saratoga Springs which allows kids to walk to field trip activities (Library Musuems etc.) nearby the school. Parental involvment in the school is also excellent.

    Lake Avenue was always an excellent school they went above and beyond the standard curriculum. The extra curricular activities available to my daughter were always educational and informative. Although my daughter is in college now I credit Lake Avenue for her special interest in earth science and art history. I thank them for their excellent commitment to education.

    This school is amazing! Hands down it is the best school in our district. Everyone is fabulous to work with. It is so open and inviting for the parents. You are welcome in your child's class or lunch at anytime without notice. It is just great!

    We are very impressed by Lake Avenue's staff! All staff seems very compassionate and dedicated to the students. Clearly a reflection of Dr Messier's leadership!

    Wonderful school! Adacemically and socially dedicated teachers supportive staff and an exceptionally professional principal. Every concern or question I had was addressed with the utmost professionalism by teachers and the administration. The music program is well worth mentioning as is the innovative curricular model used in 5th grade. I could not have found a better school for my son. The PTA has very good relations to the administration. I just wish more parents would show up for PTA meetings. It is worth the effort. Everything the PTA brings up is addressed right away.
