10 Parent Reviews for Lake Myra Elementary School

Lake Myra has been an amazing experience for us as parents and our two children. The school lives, eats and breathes the positive behavior and support program (PBIS). I see major differences between my children and those that attend a non-PBIS and non-leadership school. Lake Myra has a fabulous combination! ...  Read more

Lake Myra Elementary is a gem. Every employee there is vested in our childrens education and well being from the Principal, Dr Argent to the custodial engineers.

We love it here. It is uncrowded, the staff is friendly, and the parents don't seem stuck up. Most of the parents work full time, hence the lower parent involvement score.

My son is in K at this school. I can't say enough good things about this school. My son is always coming home singing new songs about what he learned in school that day. They try really hard to get parents involved, via family nights almost on a monthly basis. Mrs. Mitchell is great and my son loves ...  Read more
