The teaching staff at this school is very supportive. In the last 3 yrs they have been overwhelmed. The Principal and Vice Principal are extremely weak. I would consider the Leadership at this site below average. There is a bullying problem at this school. The troublemakers are treated with compassion because of their family/economic backgrounds. There should be firm rules and procedures in place to deal with all children in an equitable manner. I for one would love to see a new Admin. team placed at this school and get it back to what it once was - A 5 star school!
My children have had some great great teachers. Mrs. Garon for Kindergarten is great, loving. Mr. Patton is awesome, just awesome!!! Mrs. Morgan is so sweet and attentive. Mrs. Hupp is a great teacher as well. Now, there are a few teachers that are...eh; but that's probably in all school's. Honestly I think one of the biggest problems if not the biggest at this school is the Principal and Vice principal.. The vice principal doesn't seem to be as bad but the principal is just awful. She is very passive and almost seems to protect the "bully's" or "problem children". She is rude and disconnected when parents have a concern. We have direct experience with her and it was very very frustrating to say the least. Honestly, in hindsight we should have gone to the district as she did not help our child, the problem child or the other students by her apathetic or whatever you would call it approach. The parent involvement is wonderful and is the reason along with the teachers that this school is doing ok, but the principal's leadership or lack therof is making this school suffer greatly. It would be in the school's best interest for her to be replaced.
Good school that integrates special needs students with the regular classes well. We have had a nice 7 years at this school. It's too bad there is no natural-fit junior school to feed into from here. Many leave here after grade 5 due to local middle schools starting at grade 6 and also the problems with the grade 6 staff or at least one classroom where the teachers acts like the "queen bee" of the school.
My son attends Mrs. Garon's kindergarten class, and he loves it! Mrs. Garon is a wonderful, caring teacher who truly understands children. I wish there were more teachers like her!
My twins' are in 2nd grade and since they have attended Lindbergh starting with Kindergarten, they have been blessed with fabulous teachers.
I really do like the school. During 1st grade, we had a wonderful teacher, Mrs. Torres. She was awesome, always had something positive to say. However, we were not so lucky last year in 2nd grade, I did not care for the teacher. She did not have the qualities I would expect a teacher to have. She was not warm, caring, positive nor supportive. I know at least one other parent felt the same way.
I can highly recommend Mrs. Norman for 3rd and Mrs. Morgan for 4th. My son did really well under both of those teachers.
I have daughters in 1st and 4th grade and we have loved every teacher they've had! I feel that the teaching staff is above average at this school. They're very available to parents and quick to update you. Also, there is a new principal and vice principal as of the September '08 new school year. They are both VERY involved and enthusiastic about their new posts. Both my girls love going to school and as a result have excelled. I highly recommend Lindbergh-Schweitzer Elementary.
I Love my Childs teacher. She is amazing!!! But with the Principal I feel like there are very serious disciplinarian problems. Or lack there of. I just wonder and am very frightened that it's going to take one of our children getting hurt to make her realize that she needs to be alot more strict with bullying and threats made on the playground. And she also needs to enforce the no tolerance!!!!! policy.
This is our neighborhood school. And we for the most part love it. Our kids are happy, the teachers and staff are wonderful. My biggest concern is the way that bullying is being handled at the school. The principle takes a passive approach with situations that are serious. I'm seeing repeat offenses without appropriate consequences.
I love this school, they seem to love there students and her teacher is wonderful I have joined the PTA and they are really great and they really want whats best for the school and the students, I love the fact they do Family night once a month my child loves it and its very fun to see the kids and the teachers and everyone have fun together.
I love this school the teachers are very afirmitive, they also are helpful my child is now attending 4th grade, she is in Mrs. Morgans class. she gets up every morning with a smile on her face waiting to get there! she is in safety patrol which is good to know that they try to keep students safe, it is one of the best schools ever!
We have two children who are now attending Lindbergh/Schweitzer Elementary School. My daughter is now in a fourth grade Cluster class taught by Mrs. Morgan, each day she looks forward to going to school not just for the daily challenges for which they are assigned but for the little extras that Mrs. Morgan adds daily to enhance her students. Cup Stacking, the Chess Club and the Einstein Club, Mrs. Morgan gives my daughter more than just the required Three R s . My son was diagnosed with several learning disabilities while Kindergarten. With guidance from the principle, his teachers, the speech specialist and the wonderful Mr. Dan who worked with him to develop his fine and major motor skills, along with developing an IEP, he will reach his grade s learning level. This past March he was identified for the Gifted and Talented Education Cluster program. This was only able to be achieved due to the dedication of his teachers Mrs. Coulter and Mr. Patton who we will always be grateful for along with the entire group of specialist and the staff of Lindbergh/Schweitzer Elementary School. We thank you.
My four year old daughter is in the autism class. I adore her teachers, and they equally adore her. At least for my daughter this is a great school. She previously went to ranch elementary, I prefer lindbergh schweitzer. It's a very kind and caring staff.
This is the school I attended for elementary and now my 3 children attend. We had a lot of problems with a Kindergarten teacher last year who then left. I don't believe the situation was taken care of by the administration properly. They also do not seem to understand that the bullying that I have seen and reported is serious. I now just go to the teachers because they seem to take the matters to heart and want to help the children. The Principal and VP need to know they have problems and to act on them with a serious attitude not just push it to the side. The teachers are great. The office staff is helpful. The ones who can make a huge difference in the attitudes of these children need some improvement. Stick with the zero tolerance. mean business.
This school is great! The teachers really care about the students and is very involved with letting the parents help out with activities and much more. The level of learning is so awesome I wish I never had to have my son go to another school!!!
This school is an excellent school for students to attend. The staff is dedicated. The Office registrar is imformative and friendly to new parents. I just enrolled my youngest child and as usual, I was welcomed and treated warmly. The cafeteria, custodial and teaching staff is very professional and caring. Outstanding Admin. staff. Test scores went up this year under their leadership. But best of all - everyone who works there loves our children! What more could a parent want?
I think this is a very good school, my son has received a reading award every year, his tests are always very high and I like that they teach the kids how to care and respect and be compassionate to others with disablities. The only thing that I was not to thrilled about is the busing issue, if there are problems on the bus they really don't do that much about it.
Lindbergh/Schweitzer is a mixed school for physically abled and disabled students. It is absolutely the best school my grandson has went to since becoming disabled. Teachers are highly skilled and empathetic. They treat these children with a dignity and respect they seldom get elsewhere.
