Twin Lakes Academy Elementary School Reviews

By a Parent on

Great school overall in comparison to the counties and surrounding counties.  My son is now in 2nd grade and though I didn't care for his Kindergarten teacher, his 1st grade teacher turned me around very quickly and his 2nd grade teacher is doing great as well.  So, there are probably more great teachers then not here which is key.  However, with anything we parents need to be involved and stay on top of our children's education. We can't expect the school to do it alone.  Not all teacher's are the same and when push comes to shove that's where we parents can make the difference.

I am very happy with my sons first grade teachers .I only wish they had less class room strength

This was an awesome school.The teachers were super nice and helped you whenever they could if you had a problem.The portables were comfy but there sometimes wasn't enough space to do all the things our teacher wanted to do but we had alot of fun.The field trips were really intresting and it was a place where you could relax and still learn at the same time.The only bad things were that our lunch time was a little late and that students kept going in and out of your portable because the two new portables didn't have bathrooms.Overall this was one the best schools ever and i would recommend it to everone. GO TWIN LAKES WILD CATS!!!!!!!!

More than 1300 currently enrolled and school is increasingly over crowded at 126%, including 10 portables for 5th grade (2 with no bathrooms). About a dozen classrooms have 36 students stuffed into them with 2 teachers with little room to move.   Resources (art, music) are every 14 days and music room was eliminated - so comes to class.  The computer room had to be split and shrunk to allow more classroom space.   No gym for inclement days; PE often is walking/running around the bus loop or a bike safety video.  Lunches start at 10:10 and finish at 1:30.

Kids are bussed in from 8 miles away and dismissal process takes 20-30 minutes further reducing educational time.  School has moved down from an "A" to a "B".

Teachers are wonderful and manage to overcome these obstacles, but quality of education has suffered in recent recent years due to overcrowding.
