  • Lake Alfred Elementary is a great school. Mrs. Castle, the school's principal, is smart and caring. She has a vision for her school and expects the best from her teachers and her students. She has a heart of gold and would do anything to better the school and/or those who enter the school.
    The teachers are among some of the best. Many of them are continuing their education and are working towards their masters degrees. I think it is such a positive example for my child to see her teacher actively pursuing her education; it shows them you have to work hard to get what you want. It's just an overall fabulous school and I am glad my daughter has the opportunity to learn in such a positive and caring environment!
