22 Parent Reviews for Sligo Creek Elementary School

My kid is a first grader in Sligo Creek. So far so good. French Inmersion parents overrate the school simply because they got in this lottery program. Sure, the kids learn another language that the parents in most cases ignore, and they praise it. But it is known they do fall behind as much as kids in ...  Read more

It was the best of times, it was the Worst of times. For those in the french immersion and some who excel in the Academy, it was great. However, for the average to below average students in the Academy, the school is fraught with classrooms where learning is much more difficult than it should be. My ...  Read more

Well based on the letter regarding your policy of inclusion, appreciation, and respect of students with special needs and / or autism, it appears you should get a rating of ZERO. LETS HOPE ITS NOT POSSIBLY TRUE. You wouldn't make the cut in our school district in Canada.

MD school systems are ridiculous, I am a New Yorker, I moved into this area due to my military service obligation. My experience with this school was very unpleasant, my 5 yr old was placed on a bus, when he was supposed to go to the "in-school" aftercare program. The bus driver dropped off my child ...  Read more

I think Sligo Creek Elementary school is great. Our child is in the French immersion and has learned so much. Last summer we enrolled our kid in an expensive French camp and were actually less impressed with their offerings than the ones at SCES. We are so pleased with the teachers, who are engaged ...  Read more

We have been very happy at this school. Our child is in the academy program and instruction is strong. Our child excels in math and writing and he receives appropriate enrichment in math and the teacher works with him to home his writing assignments. We love the specials teachers, especially music and ...  Read more

I am not sure where parents are obtaining some of the data. The most recent post states that there is a high turnover. As an involved parent volunteer with children in the school for 12 years, there has been no turnover in staff for the past 4 years. The principal is responsive and caring. She is outside ...  Read more

School leadership is not responsive to needs of students with learning issues. The staff is hindered by administration in what they can do. There is regular turnover of staff and many new teachers at the school. I would not recommend this school at all.

We have found Sligo Creek to be...OK. In one of the other comments a parent in French immersion stated that "Both programs appear to be given equal attention and resources." I disagree. As a parent of an academy child the difference in attention and resources between the two is painfully apparent. ...  Read more

We have a child at Sligo Creek Elementary School. We find the school to be average. Our child's class sizes have ranged from 26 at the low end up to 28. We find most of the teachers to be wonderful, but they have expressed their frustration about the limitations put on them by the Principal in how ...  Read more
