My son goes to this school since K. I am very much impressed with the performance of the teachers. This school is even much better than the private schools around both in Lodi and Stockton. I am a physician from Lodi Memorial Hospital and most of my colleagues from work send their kids to this school too. In fact, one of the oncologist's wife works for the school and they are thinking of moving to Lodi and they would send their kids to Larson too.

This is a fantastic school, tons of parental involvement and great teachers (except for one 1st grade teacher!) It has a uniform policy but unfortunately not all parents make their kids follow it like they should, otherwise we are extremely happy here, my children are advanced in all categories thanks to this school.
