Terrible Front Office Staff. Teachers are wonderful and will work with you and care about the students. The two ladies in the front are disgusting. They make fun of parents who have children with disabilites. I witnessed a phone call between one of the office ladies to a new parent on the phone who wanted to know how to get to the school and where she could park, since one of her children were handicapped. She was extremely rude to the parent, then mimics her when she gets off the phone and says "There is such a thing as Google" in front of parents standing at the front. RUDE RUDE RUDE. And Tammy Eck, talk about little hitler. She will harass you to no end that you have to contact her right away if your student misses school. Dont even think about sending a note the next day. You call her right now~ And she has no problem reprimanding a parent in the office in front of other parents and embarrass them. This would be a great school if it wasn't for those two ladies. Disgusting. Will be pulling them from this school ASAP. Has really gone down hill. I would avoid this school.

Mrs. Hall is an excellent teacher who goes above and beyond the call of teaching. She is dedicated and ensures that all her students succeed. The line of communication is always open! Great job Mrs. Hall and Lincrest!

Lincrest Elementary School recently received the 2009-10 Title I Academic Achievement Award. This is no small victory. Only 243 of California's 10,000 schools made the cut. Congratulations to Principal Liz Miller and the Lincrest teachers for setting high standards, and a job well-done to the students for meeting those goals.

My son has attended Lincrest since K and is now in the 4th grade. We LOVE Lincrest!! The teachers and staff are fabulous. Parent involvement is highly encouraged and there is a real sense of community within the school. I would consider no other school for my child.

My daughter is a 5th grader at Lincrest. Her teacher Mr. Nieto is very good! He makes sure that all of the kids are on track, and most importantly, take responsibility for themselves, and their progress. It's rare today to have a teacher who makes such an impact that all your child does is talk about them at home! Keep up the good work Lincrest, and Mr. Nieto!

New teachers at the school are questionable at best. If you have a problem and are able to get a hold of the principal, don't expect much help.

My children have been attending Lincrest for two school years and I must say it is one of the best schools in the area! The teachers are outstanding and highly encourage parent involvement. My son's teacher Mrs. Hall is an especially extraordinary teacher. My son has some issues and Mrs. Hall has gone above and beyond her job description to not only be an excellent teacher but a behavior specialist at times. She has kept the lines of communication flowing between herself and I in order to help my son; as she does for every student she teaches. The office staff, counselor, daycare staff, and janitorial staff are friendly and helpful. I would recommend Lincrest above any elementary school in the district.

My daughter went here for kindergarten and we loved the interaction with the teachers and students. Parent participation was so high in my daughters class her teacher had too much help. I would completely recommend this school as it is very structured and age appropriate surroundings.

This is the best school my children have ever attended! My daughters first grade teacher Mrs. Schwartz is amazing! I was also in awe of the teaching staff in general. They have excelent arts programs and truely care about our children. I am so very pleased with this schools wonderful staff that I would never consider transfuring my child. I am also very impressed with the schools out reach to the local community! On Halloween all the teachers gather their students, who are all dressed in their costumes and paraide around the neighborhood. All the parents are invited to attend this event! It is so much fun! Academicley my child has excelled beoynd any thing I could have imagened! I could not be happier with this school and am very greatfull to live in a community where education is held so highly!

My daughter had a hard time with math. They enrolled her in the learning center,there she got one on one and was able to learn alot faster and get up to speed. Ms.Z was a great inspiration for my daughter. I wish the school went up to 8th grade, my daughter doesnt want to leave. I have two sons that will still be attending in the fall.Thank you Mrs.Z!!!!
