Supports LD students: Strongly disagree


- a
If you come in smart, you will possibly stay smart, but if you need some help, you probably won't get it.

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
Look at how the school has declined in the past 3 years, the same time the new principal started. Pretty clear what's happening.


Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
My kids came in with strong character. The Core Virtue class is more like a free for all. Little virtue instruction exists.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
At the open house they talk about the curriculum, but I don't really see any of it. Really hit and miss. Some teachers are energetic but that doesn't necessarily mean that they are teaching well even though they are entertaining.

Amount of homework: Strongly disagree


- a
Really inconsistent and teachers don't seem to know how much the other teachers are assigning. With 8 teachers a day, that can be quite a mess.




- a
Disastrous. Kids become so stressed because they want to learn but many teachers are not trained or competent, yet expect the students to learn with insufficient instruction. Kids cry a lot there and think they are stupid, not because the teaching is high level, but the opposite. The teaching is poor and when kids don't learn, they are told that they are making the teachers look bad. Emotionally damaging to students.



- a
WATCH out and beware of comments like the one below where there is no positive feedback whatsoever and only endless ranting. My children have been here for 5 years and we love it. YES there are some improvements that could be made, but I would challenge you to find a school where this isn't true. My children are very bright and I credit it to Loveland Classical's curriculum and wonderful teaching. Also, I know many parents who pulled their students from LCS for other disctrict schools and they have all commented on how their children's schoolwork/homework is not challenging at their new school. I find it hard to believe these parents would all say the same thing if in fact LCS's standards are lower then others.



- a
Watch out! Really check out the credentials of the leadership (or lack of) and teachers. Don't let the excuses and grades fool you. Check scores for yourself and talk to those who have left. Too much dishonesty and too many secrets, all at the expense of your child's education. And when you see a bunch of positive reviews all at the same time, it's because they tell parents to go review with 5 stars and use multiple email addresses so they can give more than one review.


Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
I've never even seen anti-bullying stuff come home or heard anything about it.

Supports LD students: Strongly disagree


- a
They wait for your child to call so far behind that they need special education before they do much Seems there are too few people to help, and kids just get ignored in the class as long as they aren't misbehaving.
