I have my son enrolled in Ladd Ln and I am so glad that he is. His last two teachers he's had have extremely helpful in his success. Both ladies have kept me in loop with anything that has pertains to my child. I am very excited to put my other child in Ladd Ln next year.

At the beginning of the 2011-2012 school year, I moved my son from another local school in town to Ladd Lane due to bad experiences that I had with the Prinicpal at the other school. I keep asking myself, "Why didn't I make this move sooner?". The staff, teachers and administration at Ladd Lane are excellent! I talked to Mrs. Carlson the principal at Ladd Lane and explained to her the problem that I had at the other school. I asked her "do you mind if I bring my son in to meet you so he knows, that you are a friendly person and will listen to what he has to say?" Her response was "Bring him by my office first thing tomorrow morning before school". So I did, I must say that after my son met her, he felt so welcomed at that school. He knew the Vice-Principal, Mr. Ward from the other school and was very happy that Mr. Ward was there at that school as well. Not only does he like going to school know, but is frequently telling me that I need to hurry up so he's not late. He wants to get there so he can see his new friends before school starts. This was a BIG relief to me. I am so glad I made this change. Like I said in the beginning, "Why didn't I do this sooner?"

I am a parent of twin boys who attend ladd lane. I am a parent with alot of questions and concerns about everything. I am very pleased with the teachers and principal my sons are in 1st now and love their school. I have had all my questions answered promptly. I couldnt have picked a better school for my sons. They take that extra step in making your child feel individualy special and important. Thanks So Much!!!! Gail Hernandez

I have had my son in Ladd Lane since the second grade and from my prior experience with other schools, Ladd has been by far the best. We have never had any trouble. They have done well with my son and helped him advance as an individual as well as academically. At ladd your child and yourself are not just another face, but a name. The staff is excellent, always willing to help and answer questions when needed. I wish Ladd was K-8, I would love to keep him there. One more thing, the principal is so helpful, she returns calls proptly and is very compasionate with the needs of the children.

I think that Ladd Lane has exceptional teachers. Overall they care a great deal about the students and I think it shows in the students' enthusiasm for school. I also think the leadership in the school is of exceptional quality.

All of my children have attended Ladd Lane School. I currently have two students attending. I have been an active member of the parent club for the last 8 years. We have a wonderful Principal and an excellent staff. The staff gives 150-200% everyday to give our students the highest quality education within our means. We have a great GATE and music program. Parent involvement is great but can always be better. Parents need to involved at all levels of the educational experience. Our library and librarian are the best in the district. Bottom line ... you get what you put into it .... as a parent get involved ... in the classroom, parent club, sports, etc. Everyone benefits.... especially the kids.

We had a wonderful experience in the kindergarten here with Ms. Cook. We left the school in the 1st grade as we were unhappy with the lack of challenging materials.

Campus so focused on test results due to 'no child left behind' that broader learning falls at the wayside. Significant layoffs in the district has staff morale at a new low. Forget about p.e. and healthy snacks/ lunches. We're in the county with the highest child obesity in california. art, music, sports...what's that?

The academics at Ladd Lane were good for my kids. One of my children still goes there and he enjoys it very much, although i have to disagree with some of the disipline that goes on there.

Excellent teachers and administrators. Very good school district for most children. There is a lot of parent involvement, but as a new school, there are not a lot of established programs.
