The teachers and staff were less than welcoming to my daughter when we arrived. Midyear transitions are hard on everyone, but my daughter's teacher expected everyone taught the same, and did not take the time out to explain new proceedures or material. Recess is at the end of the day, if at all, and lunch is at 12:50, so the children are getting burned out. I realize test scores are important but so is being a kid. My daughter who use to love school dreads going and has brought home a warning almost everyday for lack of anytime to relax throughtout the day. It is sad to see children who are unable to do anything but study for a test all year to ensure the school gets proper funding. I am hoping it is the teacher and it will be better next year. This district was suspose to be the best.
THe office staff is often rude. Typically they ignore you unless you demand attention if you can find someone around. Most of the teachers are very dedicated but communication between them and support educatora leaves a lot to be desired. They try but they just can't get organized or in synce. The principal is clueless.
We were at Lewiston for 2 years and were very unhappy there. The principal didn't seem interested in listening to our concerns. There wasn't many chances to get involved. The PTO wasn't welcoming for us either. We felt like outsiders the whole time. The teachers at Lewiston are very nice and warm. We just moved out state and are so happy with the opening arms of the new school and PTA.
Lewiston has also been a huge disappointment to our child.They have some wonderful caring teachers but not at all supportive administrators.They do not follow up at all with parents concerns.The principal and assistant principal should not be at an elementary school !
Lewiston is an excellent school. Parents are encouraged to be involved in the classroom. Teachers are top-notch and have earned numerous grants for special programs. The art, music, computer, special education, early intervention, gifted child and counseling programs are outstanding. The principal goes out of his way to get to know every child in that school. I believe he knows them all by name. Through the second grade, every classroom has a teacher and a teacher's aid in the calssroom. The children are challenged to do their best and they thrive at this school. I will really miss this school when my son moves on to middle school. Lastly, the ladies who run the PTO could be more open to newcomers and new ideas. Their primary objective is fundraising, which they are very good at. They are not a reflection of the the staff or performance of the school.
We have been a Lewiston Elementary for 1 1/2 years. I have been very disappointed in the school, we still feel like outsiders. We are a military family and I have always been involved in my childs school, the PTO board does not welcome newcomers or change. This is the first school we have ever had this type of experience. I do not recommed this school.
Lewiston has been a disappointment. I have personally found that parent concerns are not acknowledged.
My child has been in Lewiston now for three years and she has excelled in her growth. We started off in a private school and found this public school to be more supportive and well rounded in the teaching process. I love the teachers and the guidance department. The principal makes an effort to know the children by name and he is visible to the children and the parents. Being a busy school they know the parents of the individual child. If they do not know they ask for I.D. Cudos!! The effort is there to know the family and to protect the child!! We have been rezoned and will truly miss Lewiston next year. Thank you Lewiston!!
These teachers really care about their students. Lewiston has a great principal and all the teachers are wonderful! Columbia County schools offer a great enhancement program for above average students.
