My son went here as a 5yr old in kindergarden and was listed by one teacher as top 2 in his class but the watcher for the class in cafeteria always had negative childish things to write in his daily notes. And upon asking my child about it I came to find out he was being mistreated. Everything was brought to the principal and vices attention. They said they would talk with that teacher and did nothing but give excuses for her. Few days later my son tells me how he got in Trouble for laying his head down wrong and later in lunch one of the teachers yelled in his ear to shut up and don't move. To a 5 yr old. I brought this up to the principal again for nothing to be done a out it. The teachers I seen at Tibet seem a little under qualified and childish to handle younger kids. I wouldn't recommend this school to my enemies. Do research before sending your child somewhere in savannah. After pulling my child out of the school I now get harassed by the principal n vice to give them another shot and trust them to do better.. I mean seriously. This school needs to be revised. Or at least new principal n vice. They seem to not care that much about parents issues.

This school is awful. If you want your kid to be bullied or have their stuff stolen, send them here. If you want your kid to be yelled at by teachers, then send them here.

I do not recommend going to this school. Most teachers are too strict and go too fast for a lot of students. I am speaking this first hand as I am a student. If you decide to let your child attend this school, I recommend requesting teachers because it will give you a better chance of getting the teacher you or your child wants. If not, they assign you to levels, not pace. I am going into fifth grade but I have the same teacher. She switched grades and I requested her. I am not positive that teachers can request students. Some teachers are nice and they treat kids to more recess, more activities, and even candy if they behaved well to promote them. The teacher I had would teach individual classes if when her students did not understand in a full class session. We have a good amount of homework per class. That is except for 3rd. It is over-whelming and three pages front and back in gifted classes and special classes. (Special and gifted are in one room.) I hope this was helpful, Anonymous Largo Lepord

We moved to Savannah from Hawaii, and this school is amazing compared to the school my daughter was going to in Hawaii. They have given her much more challenge work, and pushed her hard to learn. She has made Honor Roll 3 times this year. I love how there is 2 teachers per classroom, as well as smaller sized classes. I also enjoy the fact the teacher will call the parents to inform you of your child's work needs, good or bad. I also like how this school has art classes, and music classes (Did not have them in Hawaii) I am very impressed with this school. Mr & MRS Conden, YOU ROCK!

I am a teacher at Largo and I love my school. I have worked at several other schools throughout Georgia and have been a teacher for 19 years. I have NEVER worked at a school where the teachers worked so hard together for the benefit of the children. We love our kids and it shows. EC

I am not impressed by this school, spite what i have heard from other parents. My daughter transferred from Sandhill elementary and in my opinion Largo Tibet is just like any other Chatham County public school... I wish that I had never bought a house in Savannah. However, my opinion of the Principle is quite different I feel that she is a wonderful person and that she has very high expectations for her students, and Mrs.Woodard in the office is the sweetest woman I have ever delt with and I hope the best for her... My daughter has only been here for one year, but this year I am very dissapointed by the actions of this first gread teacher. My daughter was a high honor student and enjoyed school as much as she did her summer vacations and would rather die than go to school in the morning.

This is a wonderful school. My son tranferred to this school this year from another school in the District. The staff was so accepting of him and so were the children. The school offers computer classes for the children and tutorial for those who struggle. The two principals are very welcoming. It definitely has a warm atmosphere. My son did pass all subjects of the CRCT this year and I believe it was due to the extra morning tutoring. Kudos to Largo.

My son attended LTS & I used to be impressed with the school. He is in the advanced class & I was not happy at all this year that children who were on 'that' academic level were placed in the class. The class was overcrowded & I don't think the teacher could deal with that well. For the most part I think LTS has went down w/ the 'migration to the Southside'. Some teachers there are the cream of the crop however some just don't care & only are concerned w/ a smooth day for themselves. Just not impressed anymore and kind of disappointed!from
