Wonderful school! Teachers are caring and involved, and so is the principal. My only complaint is that they seem to focus on the Common Core curriculum, which I disagree with. I realize that most schools are adopting this curriculum but I wish LPS would reconsider.
Can't say enough about how happy we have been with Lenski. The teachers are exceptional and really have their eyes on pushing each child to their fullest potential (which I think/hope is also driven and supported by our great principal). The parents involvement is off the charts. We were nervous about "real school" and have been very very happy.
As a parent of a 5 year old, this is the first time my wife and I have dealt with "real" school since we were kids. The horror stories and our own bad experiences made us yearn for private school. It was too cost prohibitive. LENSKI IS Incredible. It has turned out to be everything we had hoped for in private school. It should be a model for other schools. My wife and I are allowed to volunteer at school and we are so glad we could because it allows us to see how school can be run with good direction. We could not be happier with the staff at all levels. My son was considerably behind (through no fault of his own) and as a kindegardner they are successfully bringing him up to speed. They have exceptional teachers and programs and I am amazed at how many of the names of each child they know from all over the school.
Lenski is a wonderful school with fantastic academic achievement. There is a large percentage of parent involvement and a very active PTO organization. While class size has increased over the past couple of years due to budget cuts statewide, the level of education has not suffered. The school has many resources for reading, computers , library sciences, etc. and pulls from these resources when needed for various learning needs and opportunities. The children in grades 3rd, 4th and 5th touch a computer daily and the younger grades do several times a week. There are also many enrichment programs offered before and after school such as mad science, computer club, spanish, various musical classes, art and many others. I have had three children over the past eight years enrolled in the school and found that each one has excelled. I love this school for my children!
Wonderful school! We were so happy with the teachers, how the school was run, the parent involvement and all the extras the school offered (music performance programs, foreign languages etc). My children are now in high school and college so it has been a few years, but they have both done well since leaving Lenski. I am sure due to the great foundation the school provided.
We have been very pleased with Lenski and their academic focus. Lenski's principal Dr. DeSpain has a remarkable reputation and delivers excellence. The parent involvement and volunteer participation is very high. Fundraising is hugely successful and helps support some great programs. I would highly recommend this gem to any family seeking a top notch school in the area.
Lenski is a small school with a great community and fabulous teachers! I think that the students do lots of hands on projects, music, art, and theater, and accelerated learning programs. Wonderful school!
They are children centric and have helped keep my daughter engaged and challenged.
Great school; involved parents; access to GT programming at early ages. Caring and committed teaching staff. PE and outdoor activities.
I have a kindergartner at Lois Lenski Elementary. This is a school with many high achieving children and extremely high parental involvement. Excellent music and art classes in curriculum. Many extra-curricular activites available like Spanish, Geography Club, Science, Art, etc. One huge disappointment is class size. Although they promote a 19:1 ratio, there are 26 kids in my son's kindergarten class with one teacher, and no aide. Class sizes of 25+ are the norm. The individual attention is not there, but somehow test scores are the highest in the district. Most parents and children are happy with the school despite large class sizes.
The quality of academic programs is superior. The teachers are highly educated, and they create a great learning environment for children. A sense of commorodory and sensitivity is taught to students. Before and after-school programs are abundant, providing opportunities to fulfill your child's full potential.
Excellent school choice! It's big for an elementary school, but that allows additional resources to be available for all types of learners. Incredible parent support in and out of classrooms. Great extra-curricular options. They teach to students abililities, challenging students with extra projects or advanced grade levels when needed. Teacher turnover is low, and kids come from out of district, just to attend Lenski. Super school!
This is a fabulous school. Lenski got my children back on track, academically and emotionally after a less than perfect charter school experience. Teachers here have high expectations for work and behaviour and it shows. Just come and walk the halls. Happy kids, great work displayed all over the walls!!The teachers and support staff are very accessible and friendly. I am willing to drive long distances to have my children in this school.
