This school has excellent teachers and a new caring Principal who keeps parents well-informed. The teachers expect a lot and there is a lot of homework, but my daughter has excelled at this school with its advanced curriculum. My 3rd grade daughter, required to read for 30 minutes a day, now reads at the 6th grade level. Her writing has improved dramatically. She aces most math tests and the teachers drill her twice a week on addition facts, allowing only a minute and a half to do 30 addition problems. My 2nd daughter, who just finished Kindergarten, was already expected to do research on Ocean Animals and then make an oral presentation. She needs extra assistance on math, but the caring teachers are willing to go out of their way to help. The school is on top of the latest learning systems such as Common Core, Reading Counts/Lexile Scoring, and Thinking Maps. The Principal offers educational classes to parents to help them understand the new tools and assist their children in maximizing the tools' effectiveness. The student pickup/dropoff has improved and security at the campus has improved with the installation of fences and better control of entrances.

My child has been at landell for 6 years and I'm sad to say the once pristine school has lost it's luster. Wonderful teachers have retired or left and the school is on its 3rd principal in the last 5 years. The new principal has no prior experience and is using the school as her pet project. The children are becoming increasingly disheartened and feel they no longer have a voice. I loved this school but I am thinking of switching schools. Several students this last year have transferred to other cypress schools due to the complete disorganization of the teaching staff and incompetence of the new principal. The teachers dress like frat boys and sorority girls rather than role models for our children.

I've known many families over the years who have had children attend Landell School and they have had great experiences. It's a shame that just a few people with a few bad experiences post here and make it sound like the staff is bad. When you have so many families and students, there are bound to be a few people that are unhappy. It just seems that those are the ones who post instead of the happy ones. Just review Landell's stats and scores and how people continue to want to get their students into that school. They are definitely doing something right. Hey, if the school didn't fit for you, I'm sure you will find the one out there somewhere that's a better fit.

I have to say that I share the views of many here. my son is 6 months of being here. is his first year and I am very sad to see how the teachers do yell and have no patience, the principal is very cold with the kids and i dont feel welcome in the school. this is the last year that my son will be here. I am very upset to see that many parents said things that are not true. they need to be more sincere

The preschool special ed program is outstanding because of a wonderful group of highly trained teachers and support staff. Amie Eder is a hardworking teacher who goes above and beyond when it comes to her students. She cares deeply about the students' success which makes her that much better at her job. The fact that the support staff, including speech therapist Stephanie Holl and the classroom aides, have endless energy and a desire to give it their all make this program one of the best I could have ever hoped for for my son. Because of this group of special education teachers, I have faith that he will have a great educational foundation that will take him farther than I could have ever imagined.

Initially (6 years ago) I was concerned with the idea of a "Year Round" program. After the first year, and the progress that my son made, I was a believer. The teachers and principal are very hands on and involved with each student- this is what you hope for in your school but not always what you get. Landell has been a wonderful school and we will miss it when we move on toy junior high next year!

Landell is a very good school because it has many physical activies such as the program SPARK. It has hundreds of self controled students that are eager to learn. I highly recommend parents to enroll their child or children to this wonderful, dedicated as a distinguished school.

Landell is an excellent school. My child is in Kindergarten and loves her teacher. The teacher is well prepared,patient, and attends to each child on their own level. Currently, my child is reading at a second grade level and the teachers enthusiasm has contributed greatly to her success.

Landell is a wonderful school. I have never seen such parental involvement; it's very much expected. The teachers really get involved and some have added e-mails as a way to keep parents informed on upcoming assignments and activities. We feel Landell is the best!

This is an academically challenging school with involved parents who value and encourage academic success. The majority of the teachers are excellent. The teaching goes beyond the textbook, with many projects, applications to learning and opportunities for further study. The principal leadership is strong. Note: they clearly will not accept parental teacher preferences, however, parents have the opportunity to submit a letter with child's learning needs, style, etc. for consideration in classroom placement.

I do not have a child at Margaret Landell but I am a volunteer Science teacher. I have visited many schools in Orange Co. and can say that Landell is at the top of my list in providing the extra care students need in today's educational challenges, especially in the sciences.

This is an excellent school with caring teachers and involved parents. Great teamwork. The year-round schedule is wonderful; students do not lose as much during the shorter summer break and the longer breaks in winter and spring are beneficial to teachers and students alike.

Parent involvement is extraordinary. Teachers and parents work together to put together great opportunities for the kids both inside the classroom and as extracirricular activities as well.
