My daughter is about to complete her first year at Lorne and I couldn't be happier. She transferred from a school that had taken her motivation into one that has inspired her to learn more. As a parent, I am brought to tears that she is happier than ever to be here, but sad that i waited so long to do so. If you want your child to be willing to do anything to achieve, then bring her here.
I don't know what school the previous parent review is referring to but it can't be Lorne. Teachers are willing to meet in person or speak on phone depending on who you have. However the best way to communicate with them is by email and will set up a time to meet in person that way. The principal is a great leader who truly has an open door policy. To say that he is intimidated makes no sense since he actively runs to the school unlike some who work behind their desk. You will not find better parent involvement at any school anywhere. The PTA is extremely active and the President not only has a son in college who used to attend Lorne but has a little girl who STILL attends. The rest of the PTA board members all have kids who attend and are very active with fiund raising and working with the school and the staff. Perhaps if the previous reviewer was actually involved with the PTA or with the school instead of posting baseless and false reviews they would know that. The school playground is mostly blacktop but there is ample shaded area and a huge grass area at the center of the school. If you want a school that works as a true partner with you for your child this is it.
The parent who posted the negative comment was only on campus once to register her kindergartener. Why was she here if our, school is so bad? Our office ladies are so accommodating and would do anything for our students and faculty. They also are so supportive of all of our MANY parent volunteers.
Lorne St/Lorne Magnet is the best school my child has ever attended...He is new to 5th grade, able to enjoy his new environment, friends, and loving it! Lorne has the best academic, music, and leadership programs taught by compassionate and excellent teachers/mentors. He will be talking about Mr Carver for many years to come... Kudos to the school's PTA, faculty, staffs, and Mr. Merritt for a job well done. Best decision I have ever made!.
Great PTA, caring teachers, Principal who cares. Math/Science standards enforced and Gifted teachers available. This is the second round with daughter at the school, and even though many of my son's teachers have left, their replacements are GREAT TEACHERS!
My son has been at Lorne since Kindergarten and will be entering the 5th Grade. We have loved every teacher that he has had throughout. Each one has been instrumental in the success that he has had with all that he has attempted and accomplished in school.
