My son has been there for 2 years and he loves it. The staff is good and he is learning alot. The current principal is leaving this year and the assistant principal is stepping up in his place. Ms. Dee is very strict and she is good with discipline but I don't think she will make a good principal. This is an elementary school not a juvenile detention center. I don't know how things will be next year but hopefully things won't get worst. This is an awesome school and I haven't had any problems so far. The school nurse is great too. She really cares about the children.

I am so pleased with Lancashire. My son has completed 1st grade and his teacher Ms Bross and specials teacher Mrs McBride are amazing. The whole team works together to help the child. I am proud to be a part of the Lancashire family. The staff really goes above and beyond for the students. The principle Mr. Barry interacts wonderfuly with the children on a daily basis. Keep up the great work! L.S.H.

Our son has been attending Lancashire since kindergarten. He is now in the 2nd grade and we love this school. The pod set up is a brilliant and functional design. This year, we encountered some problems with the teacher. To be more specific, it was the teacher's style of teaching. At times, the teacher appeared unorganized and not connecting with our child. This consequently resulted in my son feeling confused and long nights spent completing homework assignments. However, after a couple of meetings with the teacher & principal, things improved dramatically. The principal is absolutely the best. I would highly recommend this school to anyone. The friendly, professional and warm environment makes Lancashire a special school. The children's success is a priority to the principal, teachers and staff.

my son is student of Kindergarten in lancashire and having a hard time to cope up with ideosyncrasies of his class teacher. With few incidents, we have concluded that the teacher has set notions with some students and irrespective of what these students do, her behavior with those students will not change. Unfortunately for us, our son is in her 'bad-books'.

My daughter will be finishing 1st grade at the end of June. Her teacher is outstanding, to say the least. Other parents with 1st grader children in different classrooms say the same about their child's teacher. My child is now reading and writing on a 3rd grade level. She can easily add and subtract. Her teacher has prepared in-depth social studies and science lessons, that include building terariums and aquariums in the classroom. The 1st grade and Kindergarten rooms are together at one end of the building in what is called a pod. They have a strong reputation for teamwork, it shows. We could not be more pleased with our child's academic progress or with this school.
