I have a 5th grader who has been at LR since Kindergarten. I also have 2 other children at the school Overall we have had a great experience. My children have been appropriately challenged. When I have had questions and concerns, the administration has always quickly dealt with the problem. I feel that my kids are still allowed to be kids in an age where many school have unrealistic expectation on children. My kids have learned without feeling like they are pressured or stressed. I find it interesting that the 1 star reviews of LR are based on 1 teacher (every school has a bad apple in the bunch), 1 day at the school, and 1 phone call to the school. I would think no matter where you go there will be an occasional bad day.

I have 1st and 4th grader at LRE. We love our school. Do not be concerned about the size. It is big, but has a close knit family appeal. Great administration and teachers.

We are finishing up our Kindergarten year for our oldest child. I could not have asked for a better experience. Her teacher was wonderful. It seems like the entire Kindergarten staff is great. Kindergarten has changed since I was in Kindergarten. They actually make them work and while challenging I know it will benefit my daughter in the future. We've enjoyed learning games as her homework which have made it fun. The school has had many activities that we have enjoyed as parents and with our whole family. I hope those who have issues are writing the principal and participating to make things better. Thank you Little River!

We have been at LRE for 4 years with 1 in first grade and 1 in fourth grade. I could not be more please with this school! I am so surprised to see their rating. Yes it is a big school BUT I have a story to tell you: We transferred our fourth grader to a much smaller STEM school at the beginning of the year hoping he would benefit from the STEM curriculum. Big mistake! Yes, it was smaller but no where near the level of education at LRE (and they were a STEM school people). After 1 month we transferred back and wondered why we ever left. Never again. We have never had a teacher we didn't like. The very few times there have been issues they have been handled quickly and wonderfully by teachers, assistant principals or the principal himself. The front office staff is warm, friendly and remember details about parents, even when they don't see you everyday like some of the more involved volunteers. I can't say enough about how much we love this school! Woodstock is a booming and growing community and this school seems to be growing at an extreme rate. I worried at first but now I know this school can handle it.

The large size was intimidating until I walked in the doors. LRE is a family and the teachers and staff genuinely care about the students.

Love, love our Little River Family! I couldn't be happier with our experience with Little River over the past 5 years. The staff is like our family and the feeling you get when you walk through the doors is very loving and welcoming.

I have 2 kids at this school and 3 nephews. They have awesome teachers and a magnificent principal! I have never seen a more involved principal and you can see that he truly cares about the kids and what he does. He's outside with carpool every single morning and its always about, not locked in an office doing nothing. Its kept clean and the staff has always been helpful and kind to me.

The first time I gave this school with the 5star, but right now, I'm feel this school the teacher is so horrible, the teacher doesn't care about their student. I'll always request for parent meeting, the teacher never respond my request. I'll hope if superintendent read it, please take action about this school teacher.

I feel this school focuses way too much on "size" and less on actual care and compassion. The office staff couldn't be more rude and very unapproachable, they almost go out of their way to ignore you. We are new here this year and come from a school where we knew everyone's name and they knew us, definitely not the case here, although I am very involved in my child's class and activities. its a shame kindness is not practiced and showed as example.

I don't know if it's due to the size of the school or smallminded prejudice, but I have been treated with coldness and rudeness by staff here more than once. Sure, there are caring teachers and administrators, but I am not sure why people lack kindness. I grew up in a smaller town where warmth and kindness were more common. My child is learning alot here academically and there are plenty of great people, but I suspect that there is a sizeable part of the population with hatred towards people who "look different."

I hope I'm not jumping the gun but the first day of kindergarten was a nightmare. The parking lot volunteers/staff were rude. There was zero direction of where to go until someone would yell at you for apparently doing something wrong. The meet and greet was uninformative. I left feeling worse than when I arrived. The teachers/front office seem bothered and annoyed when you ask questions (asked maybe 4-5 questions and received rude, apathetic, short answers). I hope this was just my experience as it was a miserable one. I hope it gets better but if not...I will have to find a way to move schools as kindergarten is the starting point to a child's future. I am extremely disappointed in our entire experience so far. I was extremely optimistic about this school considering the other reviews... Hope our experience changes.

Little River Elementary is a wonderful school with a caring and dedicated staff. The school has created an excellent partnership with the families. There is great communication and many opportunities for families to get involved. We feel very thankful for all the hard work the LRE staff puts into making this such a great school for our kids! Our children feel loved and happy at LRE and they have learned so much from the quality instruction they've been given! We are so proud to call Little River Elementary our school!!

My son went to Little River E.S. for 1st through 5th grades, and my daughter has gone to this school since Kindergarten (now in 5th grade). The Principals, teachers, PTA, etc are wonderful! They truly care about each child education, and understand that some children learn differently than others & are willing to put in the extra time for those children! I truly do not have anything negative to say about this school!

We moved over to Little River from one of the very top school districts in the state, where the focus seemed to be on test scores and test preparation...very little focus was placed on my kids and what they needed to thrive as individuals. It was the best move we could have made! The focus of this school is on individual student needs, and encouraging them to thrive. Victories are celebrated and failures are met with more encouragement towards success. Parent involvement is huge, social/student bonding opportunities abound. My kids are people, not just numbers, and that is priceless!

My son went here for 5th grade and my daughter has been here for k and 1st grade. My son had a pretty good experience except for one teacher who he considered to be very mean. After consulting with the wonderful counselor she made sure my son got out of that teachers class. Once that happened he was much happier. My daughter has loved the school! She has had wonderful teachers who are nurturing and who are great teachers. The school also offers great sports programs that both of my kids have taken advantage of and have loved them. The new principal is also a very nice man and is really involved with the kids. My daughter just loves going to school everyday! It's great!
