Good dual immersion English/Spanish language program, although the teacher turnover has been a bit high. Weak academics overall in non-dual immersion program. Excellent Farm & Garden nutrition and gardening educational program (K-5). Very weak on the arts. Calls itself a science magnet school, but that is highly misrepresentative. Poor school spirit and very poor communication between administration and parents, but principal is leaving so we'll have to wait to see what new principal will bring to the school.
I have been impressed with the integration between the Farm & Garden and the cooking curriculm. Parent involvement is above average. The PTA provides excellent afterschool classes. This is a that has improved over the past 3 years.
My child transferred here from L.A. and the first person we met, Donna, the school secretary, is this school's treasure. LeConte has spanish immersion classes and a terrific PTA with many activities to bring parents, teachers and children together. My son's teacher was Ms. Sako who went out of her way to bring life to the class with animals and nature. LeConte reminds me of my old parochial school, as far as family involvement in school goes. It's a welcoming school.
