Park Dale Lane Elementary School Reviews
This School has many students attending that cannot read. The special education and staff do less than effective interventions to help these students. Some of theses students are actually in the 6th grade and read well below grade level. Thay just continue to pass them from year to year without any true concern for their futures. A "Blue Ribbon School"? I'm not sure what that means but this school does not put the needs of basic education in its proper perspective!
