I believe LPE is an acceptable choice for your average child who does not require any additional services. However, for children who do require special services you need to look elsewhere. Their knowledge of learning disorders is minimal and the staff is resistant to open communication. The school also seems to have a high turnover rate with principals and teachers.
Our family likes LPE. It has a smaller community feel to it. The parent groups are very active. The Leader in Me program provides leadership, goal setting, accountability and focus to the students. While there has been change over in principals the last few years, like other DCSD schools, LPE has retained quite a few veteran teachers and staff. My kids come home happy and like school.
I really respect every single teacher that I have come into contact with, and more importantly, my children have nothing but good things to say about every teacher that they and their friends come into contact with.
Self respect and respect for others seems paramount in these students. I see it when I substitute teach and I see it in my children's interactions with each other and with their peers. I am most impressed.
Between being a lighthouse school and really integrating Steven Covey's 7 Habits into our children's daily work and lives, I'm really looking forward to seeing how well they will now fair in higher education and in their lives.
Legacy Point is an absolutely outstanding school; and coming from a private school background, and my children all coming from charter school background, I am much more pleased with Legacy Point; at their intention for greatness in all of their staff and for accountability in their students. I'm so pleased and a little surprised as well!
To all of my sons' teachers in the past 7 years, we have been very blessed to have excellent teachers for every single year. It's shocking that since I came from a private school background and my sons all came from charter school backgrounds, that I am much more pleased with the teachers and learning that my children have received at Legacy Point; especially Mrs. Quintana, Mrs. Geary and Mrs. Conn.
