My son just started here. I would like to hear more details about people's concerns. I hope this website will allow criticism as well as praise. It's only been two weeks, but I have reservations about the amount of sitting required of a five yo as the best strategy for creating a learning environment. I'm encouraged by the involvement of the principal and the diversity of the students, but less thrilled about classroom atmosphere as a fun place to learn.
I am a parent with 4 kids ages 17-10. My son who is almost 18 Started in K at David Lubin. My 11 year old daughter is special needs. I have been bringing my kids to this school for 12 years. I moved to Folsom for 3 years and I drove my Kids everyday ( which is 25 min one way) . This school is more then just my Kids school, they are my family. The teachers are amazing, the office staff, librarian and new principle are all amazing. This is not just a job for this staff. They care about these kids. I feel so blessed to have had my children at this school. Please, if you have heard anything about this school that has been negative please come and check it out for yourself. I would NEVER send my kids anywhere else.
I love David Lubin! We have a wonderful NEW principal who is very friendly, hardworking and INVOLVED in all aspects of the school. Our PTG does a fantastic job raising money for our LAX Support Staff and spectacular Art Program & teacher . We also have an amazing COMMUNITY of parents who support our wonderful Teachers and a dedicated Office Staff and Librarian.
I have a lot to say about this school but unfortunately my posts keep getting removed. I am sure due to the fact that the school would like others to think it is a great school. Great community, yes, terrible school!
Last year was my son's first at David Lubin. I was very pleased with the inclusive feeling of community and parent involvement at the school. The communication from the school and PTG is very organized and helpful. The office staff is wonderful! Best of all, our son learned a lot! I have heard wonderful things about the new school principal and am looking forward to seeing what positive contributions he will bring.
This school is wonderful expect they offer no help for kids with learning disabilities and stone wall any attempts to provide testing for dyslexia and my daughters teacher had a very one size fits all style of teaching so my daughter has been held back we will hopefully have a different teacher this year. But even with all that said it is such a great school I couldn't imagine going anywhere else.
I love this school. Its been home now for 8 years. The teachers are fantastic. My kids have done quite well under the leadership at the school. The parent teacher group raises a lot of money to suplement programs that the school districts have cut. Its a wonderful community based school. I will be very sad when my youngest graduates.
Great school! Very positive learning environment, and PTG is very active in fundraising to supply arts/extras for students.
I went here years ago kindergarten through six grade and the teachers are so amazing. The environment here is so friendly and it's a great school to enroll your children in. My sisters also went here with me and my mom had a blast as a participating parent, you make a lot of memories with this school that will never quite leave you.
Excellent staff. The teachers are really committed to making sure the children have a well rounded education, despite budget cuts. They have a great arts program and the facility is really nice. The principle seems to run the school with a firm but kind hand, just what children of this age need. The parents are really involved with the school too. They were awarded the California Distinguished school this year too.
Amazing teachers. I really feel like they care and connect with the pupils here. We toured a few other high stat schools and this take the cake by far. They have great fund raising events too which help to raise money for the arts etc... Keep up the good work
David Lubin is an amazing school and we are so lucky to have our son there! The teachers are remarkable, engaging, experienced and caring. The staff is excellent - from Janitor to lunch Monitor to Office Staff to Librarian - these adults truly care about our kids and work to help them grow and learn daily. We couldn't ask for a better school! The parent involvement is impressive, and the PTG funds amazing after school enrichment programs for the students. We are so grateful to David Lubin and everyone who makes it awesome!
David Lubin has a diverse population of very high achieving students. Everyone works together to make it a great place to learn and work!
David Lubin is the best school around! It has a very tight knit, community atmosphere. We have the most amazing teachers, fabulous art and cooking programs, 5 aides who assist with Language Arts and math, 2 lovely learning gardens, an outstanding Parent Teacher Group, a very high level of parent participation, an after school academy that offers a variety of fun and educational classes, a wonderful library and very dedicated librarian and the most fantastic student body that is respectful and always ready to learn! David Lubin rocks!!!
I am so pleased with the staff and programs at David Lubin. The after school enrichment programs that include everything from engineering with legos, to landscape art, chorus, guitar and more. It's so rare to have so many electives for the kids in public schools today. The PTG is phenominal at raising funds to help fund the full-time librarian, extra teacher's aides, and the afterschool programs. I don't think there's a better school around that has so much diversity and achievement all rolled into one. It's wonderful.
David Lubin is a wonderful neighborhood school. The structure from the principal, combined with the wonderful teachers really add up to a successful school. The PTG is incredible when it comes to raising funds and contributing to the education of each child with field trip funds, art teacher, after school programs and music programs. Incredible school.
David Lubin exceeds my expectations! My daughter recently graduated and my son is in the GATE program and actually comes home excited about his day. The parental involvement is astounding and the diversity makes everything just right.
My son is a special needs child and requires lots of routine, patience and understanding. He came as a kinder. I heard goods things about the teacher. I observed the class on occasions and was simply amazed how the teacher and aide brought out the best in each child. I was so concerned with the challenges that I didn't realize all the STRENGTHS my child has. Thank you.
David Lubin is not only academically challenging for my son and fellow students, but the teachers & staff go above and beyond expectation to ensure success of each student. The school garden, the book faires, the festivals, the GATE program and the after school programs are a fantastic enrichment for our children. I couldnt be more satisfied with David Lubin. GO DINOSAURS!
