Last year when principal MR.Razo was there,things were very unorganized ,they would always try to raise money for field trips,kids never really went to field trips.my son has only been to one field trip since he's been there.he's in 2nd grade now.Good thing we have a new principal, mr.clark. Mr. clark has been doing some improvements to the school and has made it funner for kids.in the morning he plays music as well as for lunch time.He's bought new school sports equipment,also made the city give us a 15 minute parking ,so when we pick up our child after school,we can now park on bakman.I wish the school had a higher rating !maybe with the help of this cool new principal ,things can change at this school.
I've met 3 "principals" since the school started. My child has had to change teachers because his teacher left the school. We got a weekends notice... Very unorganized drop off and pick up situations. The teachers dismissal is a joke. The teacher my son did have couldn't even recall the name of the program they were teaching science with that year when asked at back to school night. She had to have a parent read it off of the box of textbooks. Im taking my son out of this school immediately and if you care about your childs education you would too.
So far my children have had a wonderful experience. my kids were from out of state and the teacher and principal are very welcoming and helpful. the only thing i would imporve would be the dismissal dont feel like it is very organized. And the teacher to child ratio.
I attended Lankershim from 1950 to 1955. All I can remember are good times, and teachers who cared about their charges. Three teachers stand out in my memory. Mrs. Hodges (kindergarten), Mr. Irwin Sobel, (6th grade) and one very special lady, Winifred Scribner, (1st grade). I dropped by around 20 years ago with my sister who also went there, and we visited with Mrs. Nichols my 2nd grade teacher. She was wonderful to talk to. Theodore Sobel
my school is the best school.I have 2 wonderfull kids that have asist this school. and 1 that is going to 3rd grade.Im very happy we have a great principal.wonderfull ,teacher that I love. and that care for our childrens..can not leave out our hard working teacher assistant.there for that why my school is the best YOU GO LIONS LANKERSHIM ELEMTARY thankyou.
So far so good. My child is in kindergarten, he/she is so far ahead in reading and writing. I don't remember ever learning all the stuff she knows when I was in kinder (25ish years ago). I've noticed some parents complain because of the rating on this website (5 out of 10)...PLEASE, the number 1 reason your child is not ahead or caught up with the rest of the class is primarily because of how much time the parent at home takes their time to help their child out. It's ridiculous to blame the neighborhood in which the school is in. There are primarily apartment building around this school, but that is no reason to put down the school...Your childs education starts at home!
My son attended kindergarden this year and has an amazing teacher Mrs. B. She is kind and patient and holds the kids accountable to learn, i have noticed. The princible MR. principle was amazing also, during the first day of orientation he aswered many parents questions without us having to ask. It shows he has great leadership skills and his vision is strong that he leads his staff with. the ladies are the coolest and very knowledgable office administrators I have met, There is also a TA who is amazing. I know my son is in great hands, proud he attends this school!!
