I have been working at this school for over 8 years and I can't say how proud I am to be a KLE staff member. I am lucky enough to work in a Kinder/First grade co-teaching environment.

WOW! I thought I was the only one that felt this way. KLE needs a new principal and AP. The school is great! Its the principal and AP who need TO GO! These two women are not leaders.

I do agree that the school has gone down as far as administration. I do understand that teachers have had a lot of issues with the school board, however, this is a job they choose just like everyone else's job. I think it's about time we get another new principal to bring up this school again as it was ...  Read more

My son has attended Kendale Lakes for the past 6 years. It had always been an excellent school with a great staff. It made an effor to work with the parents and the PTA, but in the past two years the new administration has severely impacted the quality of the school. Parents feel uncomfortable when ...  Read more

My child is in the third grade. He is in an ESE program. When he came in from a prior school, he was reading in a Kindergarten level. He is now over first grade level, and continues to improve. I think that says it all!
