Very caring teachers and a Principal who really cares about seeing kids succeed. I have a second and fourth grader who both enjoy the school.

As an observer over the trimester, I would say Earl LeGette is a fun and friendly school, where the teachers, principal and staff are very dedicated to students' learning!

LeGette is by far one of the most stellar schools in our district. The new principal, Mark Siewart, is amazing! His agenda is always about what's best for students. LeGette continues to challenge its high-performing students, who then excel in middle and high school. Support is given equally to all students, regardless of their academic needs. The parent community is incredibly supportive and welcoming. I can't imagine sending my child anywhere but LeGette!

5 of our children went through LeGette, 3 from kindergarten through 6th grade. The teachers are always open to communication and are there to support the children and their parents. Many after school opportunities are available and if a child has special needs he/she is given the opportunity to achieve to the best of his/her ability. The principal is more interested in the status of the school rather than what is best for the children, but the teachers seem to be able to work around this distraction and keep the children's best interests at heart. We love LeGette and would encourage others to send their children there for a great education.

We have three kids and moved to Fair Oaks ten years ago. We continue to be very pleased with the quality of education our children have received. Kindergarten is wonderful, open and engaging. We also love the families that surround us. This is truly a school dedicated to the education and development of children and the inclusion of families.

We have been very happy with Legette and have the the fortune of being able to compare the school to the RL program at Pershing. Legette has been a better elementary school experience for our household. As we reach the end of our childrens time here it has been interesting to see that the test scores of our children have become similar though at Pershing they should be far more advanced. Finally, prospective families should note that the current principal is seen by parents and teachers as a vast improvement over the prior principal.

My son attended K-6, and is now in the High Achiever program at Carnegie, and my daughter is now in 2nd grade. I'm very pleased with the school, and both of my bright students have been challenged and enjoyed school. There are some very strong teachers (K team is cream of the crop, fantastic 2nd grade teachers, 6th grade teachers are awesome) and a few weak ones. The new Principal is level headed and willing to listen to ideas. There is a lot of parent participation. I wish there were more field trips. They seem to drop more and more of them over the years. A great school.

Mrs. Wong the school principal is awsome. My child attended 3-6th grade at this school. The teachers are always have their doors open. The parents participate to create one of the best back to school festivals that I have seen at an elemenary school to date. The school also offers after school enrichment programs for a small fee or on a scolorship if needed.

This is a wonderful school with a real sense of community. Dedicated teachers who work with parents. The kids are very friendly and very welcoming and the administration is extremely supportive and innovative.

We pulled our children out of Legette because of poor administration, dropping test scores and general lack of attention directed to top performing students. Emphasis is placed on lower performers; classes are mixed so that lower performers receive the most instruction. My children were under challenged and bored. The teachers are equally frustrated and disappointed in the direction the school has taken during the last 3-4 years. They have been given the impossible task of teaching to all levels. Legette is our home school and we are greatly disappointed and saddened as we watch the deterioration of this fine institution. The principal of Legette has changed management focus from true academic achievement and a friendly child oriented environment to the over controlling of non-academic issues having nothing to do with children. Children are left under challenged and facing an unfriendly environment perpetuated by an uncaring administration.
