I just graduated from Lehi and the teachers and education was very good but the principal leadership wasn't. She was very rude to the students and accused me as something I wasn't. My mom and I regret this year so much.
My daughter has been attending this school for 2 years. I have only had good experiences with the teachers there; the teachers are not the issue. The school's curriculum is not up to state standards. Every year I get a notice in the mail stating that the school is below federal standards for academic performance. Understandably, this may be due to the high percentage of ELL's; doubling the school's workload. But, this school is severely underfunded, and it shows in my daughter's experience there. There are virtually no field trips, extracurricular activities, or before or after school programs for kids, at least for the younger ones (K-3). There are no programs for gifted children, either. Underfunded and severely suffering in regards to the educational curriculum for the kids. I also dislike the huge disparity in the demographics. Since the demographics are not that diverse or evenly distributed, many kids undergo shunning, bullying, and stigmatization. You'd expect to see these issues in high school, but it's observable here at Lehi before the kids are even in 3rd grade.
My child has been going to Lehi Elementary for 2 years now and we could not be happier with our Child's Teachers. The Teachers have been extremely professional and caring. Both my wife and I are professionals with advanced degrees and we highly value education. As parents we cannot blame the school solely for children not doing as well as they should and could be doing academically. We understand that parent involvement in a child's education is crucial. We partner with our Child's Teachers and in turn our Child is doing very well academically. We support and stand behind Lehi Elementary without any hesitation.
The school staff are friendly enough if you want a basic average expected education. The student body have lot to be desired in terms of caring respectful nature. My child was quite emotional over her treatment on the buses.In school wasn't as bad but the transportation issue is wide spread it seems across perhaps all schools from my experience.
Run as fast and as far away from this school as possible they disregard parents wishes disregard laws disregard safety of the kids anyone can walk on campus when ever they please the staff wouldn't even notice. If you are involved in any kind of custody or family battle do not send your child to this school they ignored my court papers and did whatever they pleased. Horrible horrible experience I am so happy to be gone
This school has been truly great. The staff are warm and caring and know the kids by name. I have seen many great things for my kids here who have gone here for 4 years. It's a little out of the way from where I live, but it's worth it for my kids.
Lehi is one of the greatest schools I've visited. There are Smartboards in every room. The staff is kind, experienced and knowledgeable. Kids are so diverse. There is a hearing impaired program at the school that gets the whole school involved in a "Singing Hands" choir. If you want your kids to be well rounded and high educated, send them to Lehi.
My child has been a student at Lehi for 2 years now.This last year has been emotionaly traumatizing for my whole family. It was the worst decision I ever made sending her to this school and I regret it everyday.
Lehi was the best school I have ever worked for. The enviroment was amazing.
The quality of teachers and staff at Lehi is second to none. I have 'sampled' three other elementary schools in Mesa, and none come close to Lehi. The physical plant is older, leading people to vastly underestimate Lehi. I feel like my daughters are getting a first rate education, and are becoming very well-rounded atending Lehi Elementary.
This is a great school, warm caring staff, excellence in academic areas all around. Students are learning and having fun at the same time. They enjoy coming to school each day.
This school is a great program for the students to be involved with. The staff is phenomenal and very friendly.
This school was ok. I came to observe the school and found that the teacher were willing to accomodate the student's need but the attitude was not that friendly. The student seems to be learning and seem to progress academically.
Excellent school, great teachers and Ms. Hasebe then Principal has some great values.
Lehi is a good school, but the teachers and principle need to take more action against kids that bully others, teachers are wonderful and the AR program and excell math are great for advanced kids.
Our children have been attending Lehi Elementary for six years. We have been extremely pleased with the teachers, extracurricular activities, AR program, Excel math, principal and staff.
Both of my children attended Lehi School from kindegarten through 6th grade. I have worked at the school since 1996. I love this school!! The staff is great and has pulled together to make the school academics fantastic. I miss the old days when there was more time for projects and extra studies, literature studies, etc. But that is the price we pay to make our test scores soar. I would recommend Lehi School to anyone and often do!
The teachers at Lehi are excellent. They have worked very hard to pull the school up from underperforming to achieving. They genuinely care about our kids. I have never seen such a dedicated group of teachers.
Half of my children went to Lehi K-6. All have a hard time reading and comprehending. My other children went to MacArthur and don't have any problems. I hope things are better at Lehi now.
I think Lehi staff does a good job, but could use a lot more parental involvement. I think that there are times they could be more diligent about asking for help as well! The school seems pretty good academically.
