Loretto Elementary School4

I have two kids who go to school at Loretto, one in 1st and one in 4th. We have had an excellent experience there. We've had really good teachers plus the Resource (Computer, PE, Library, Art, etc.) teachers make it feel familial, too. It's not perfect, but the things I have a problem with are mostly district-based and outside of the school's control. Plus, nothing is perfect. Most of the teachers there genuinely care about the kids and educating. It's been more than a pleasant surprise, it's been a gift.
I love this school... My child attended Loretto and was very happy there. She was involved and engaged and learned so much. I loved the teachers the staff and even the other kids. I wished I would have known about Loretto when my two older were in elementary school!
I attended Loretto from kindergarten to fifth grade, and I enjoyed my time there. I now attend Landon and I feel that this school prepared me for everything. The teachers and staff are all devoted to helping you, and will help you to succeed. On several occasions I had teachers wanting to and willing to stay after school with me, so that I could understand a concept. I would recommend this school to anyone, and everyone. -- Former Student
I am a parent and work and Loretto elementary. It is a great school. The teachers are very devoted and caring people. The CSS department (autism) is outstanding. This school continues to be an A school and it deserves to be one.
Loretto has exceeded my expectations. Despite the size, Teachers and staff take an individual interest in each child and provide a safe and fun learning environment. Mrs. Ellis is an incredible kindergarten teacher and we are lucky to have been in her class.
I am a student that moved on from Loretto two years ago. I honestly wouldn't have liked to have gone anywhere else. I think that the work I was given (especially in 5th grade) really helped prepare me for the challenges that now face me in middle school. This is saying a lot because i currently go to a college prep school, taking algebra a year early, and this school prepared me for it. I was (and still am) a straight A student all my life, and this is mainly due to the fact that Loretto's teachers really helped me to not just "get" the concept being learned, but examine it and really grasp it. I loved how I could grow not just academically, but socially as well. Even if you come in 2nd, 3rd, or 4th grade, you still know everyone by the end of your 5th grade year. I see that some people have been putting down the class size, but I loved having a larger class because all our ideas, questions, and opinions could be bounced off one another and gave us different ways of looking at something. I was going into 3rd grade when the principal changed, and I have to say that he has made it so much more the technology magnet that it is. Overall, I would strongly recommend Loretto.
