Lupton is awsome!!! I have a child with JRA that attends Lupton he will be in the 3rd grade this year and has been attending this school since grade K. All of the staff and teachers right down to the bus driver have been so compassionate to me and my child while he was going through such a hard time with his JRA. He is an A-B Honor roll student even with the pain he is in at times and lost days of school for Doctors appointments and such, with the help and love of the awsome teachers and staff at this school I know that my son will reach all of his goals for learning. It is just a few days away for the new school year to begin , he is excited and can not wait to get back in school.

I went to Lupton for seventh grade and it was a wonderful year for me. I had the time of my life on the basketball team and the acedmics were challenging enough. I've been to 11 different schools and I have to say Lupton was really wonderful.

I have two children who attend Lupton and I also attended quite a few years ago. I don't think that anyone could find a better school in this area.
